Looking for a good read to curl up with this Easter weekend? These three from Mira Books are the perfect way to unwind...

If You're Not The One by Jemma Forte (Mira Books, 2014)

If You're Not the One is the latest novel from TV presenter-cum-writer Jemma Forte. The tale follows 38 year old Jennifer Wright, who has a seemingly perfect life with husband, Max, two kids and a lovely home. However, frustrated with her lack of a career and a husband who barely seems to notice her, she can't help but wonder, is this it?

Hurtling towards middle-age and an impending mid-life crisis, Jennifer looks back at her life and wonders what might have happened had she made different choices along the way.

Would she have been living the sun-kissed dream if she'd stayed with sexy, carefree Aidan? Or lounging on a luxury yacht with fabulously wealthy workaholic Tim? Could she ever have had a happy-ever-after with sweet, gentle Steve? Jennifer is about to find out...

Not Another Happy Ending by David Solomons (Mira Books, £7.99)

Award-winning screenwriter David Solomons has put his acclaimed script-writing skills to further use with the release of his debut novel, Not Another Happy Ending. Funny and charming in equal measure, Not Another Happy Ending is set in the world of publishing and tells the tale of idealistic-but-struggling literary publisher Thomas Duval.

Following a hugely popular first novel, Duval's only successful author – and ex-girlfriend to boot - Jane Lockhart, is suffering from writer's block and is unable to finish her second book.

As Duval sees it, Jane's main problem is that she's too damned happy following the success of her first book and in order to help her write the next big misery-lit hit he sets about ruining everything in life that's making her content.

The Scandalous Duchess by Anne O'Brien (Mira Books, £7.99)

1372: The Savoy Palace, London. Katherine Swynford is back in court for the first time since becoming a widow. John of Gaunt, Plantagenet Prince and newly married, is waiting for her with an offer. Governess to his children and mistress of his bed...

Katherine is a woman of dignity, piety and grace and will not be taken in sin. But John is ambitious, ruthless, and in line to the throne. There is no denying Katherine's attraction to him and his power means he will get what he wants.

Katherine will be his royal mistress, his forbidden love. The woman who will become more important to him than his wife. The concubine who will have to stay in the shadows and ignore the wickedly vicious court whispers. The Duchess who will bear his illegitimate children and give them the Beaufort name.
