Book: Rescue by Anita Shreve (Little Brown, £12.99)
One night, paramedic Peter Webster is called to the scene of a car crash. There he meets Shelia and, despite always saying he'd never fall for a patient, he finds himself uncontrollably drawn to her charms. Safe, careful Peter and reckless, troubled Shelia embark on a fast paced, alcohol-fuelled relationship but it doesn't last and who's left alone and holding the baby - Peter.
Eighteen years on and their daughter, Rowan is one angry teenager, heading off the rails in the dangerous footsteps of the mother she's never met. Only one person can help her, but can Peter put aside his differences and protect his daughter's future?
Intense, emotional, and a compelling read, Rescue is perfect escapism for the upcoming bank holidays.
