Can you believe Father’s Day is less than a month away? Seriously, where has the year gone?! If you haven’t bought your Dad a gift yet, don’t worry, we haven’t either. BUT the team at The Book Circle has some great recommendations for every Dad out there.

As usual, Cheryl speaks to three entertaining guests. They include Todd Alexander, Banafsheh Serov and Max Barry who have all written very different, but interesting and entertaining books that we know you’ll enjoy.

The panel also chats about last month’s recommended read, Between the Lives by Jessica Shirvington.

Be sure to check out these great authors and their books, and grab a copy of this month’s recommended read, Combustion by Steve Worland.
