Need more Kate Atkinson-like book suggestions…

I find her stuff strangely comforting and engaging without making huge intellectual demands, since I’m not finding myself currently available for that.

what other writing has the same feel? FWIW, I like her WW2 stuff slightly better than the Brody stuff but it all works. I’m finishing Transcription on audio now and then I would have finished it all.

many thanks 🙏

I haven't read her books, but I found these articles ~

Maybe Kate Morton? She’s not as gritty as Atkinson, but I’ve really liked several of her books. The Secret Keeper is her best, IMO. Diane Setterfield is another one I’ve liked, especially The Thirteenth Tale.  And maybe Susanna Kearsley if you’re in the mood for historical fiction with a bit of paranormal thrown in.

I’m listening to The Thirteenth Tale right now while driving (some alone driving these days with my daughter away) and I’m very much here for it. It’s like prescription medicine.
