Book Locations

The place in which a book is set is, I think, a major factor in enjoying a novel. Trends come and go - books set in New York are currently very popular - but we all have our favourite places don't we?

For me it's the Lake District - if I find a book is set in this totally goregous part of the country then I have to read it. Another favourite of mine is Scotland. I also love books set on the coast - and Cornwall is a popular location for books at the moment (see below). A little further afield I admit to a soft spot for books set in glorious rural Ireland too.

So, what are my highly-recommend books set (or partly set) in some of these stunning locations?  Here are just a few:

The Lake District is a great setting for a novel
