Best summer reads

Let me paint you a word picture: you’re finally on that Mediterranean holiday that never seemed to arrive, and you’ve spared no time in stripping down to your swimmers and dashing down to the hotel pool. You snap your fingers and a handsome olive-toned waiter presents you with a large and colourful cocktail (or whatever your tipple); beads of condensation drip onto your skin. You let out a deep sigh of relaxation, you pick up that book (or e-reader, this fantasy’s flexible) you’ve been desperate to read, and escape into a whole new world of romance, adventure and peril.

But of course this fantasy can’t seem like a reality until you know which book it is you’re reading. So we asked the Zipcar team which books they just can’t put down right now. 
From new entries to the bestseller shelf, to reuniting with old favourites, let us know your recommendations too.
