Book recommendations for my holiday please

Off on holiday abroad this week, first time in 5 years. I'm planning to do nothing except read and need some ideas please!
I love thrillers and books that are very easy to get into. I like Diane chamberlain and CL Taylor at the moment but feel like I just want to read something wonderful rather than something that's ok. Kate Atkinson, Curtis Sittenfield and Erin Kelley are other authors I like.

I've just read Girl A. So two books now. Also fantastic, can't stop thinking about it. Disturbing and I need to talk about it!

I have just read The Night She Disappeared by Lisa Jewell. I really enjoyed it but this is the first one of hers that I have read. It does flit between 2017 and 2018, (why do so many books these days do that?) and I decided to read all the 2017 chapters in part 1 first, all together and then the 2018 ones, just to establish the stories and characters. Then I read part as it is printed. I couldn’t put it down.

Lisa Jewell is good.
Have now nearly finished Heatwave which is also great!

Mrs England by Stacey Halls is excellent. Really engaging historical fiction - I couldn't put it down.

American Dirt - loved it

Finished the heatwave now. Same story as the push, really loved it too!

Another vote for The Lamplighters by Emma Stonex - it's clever, beautifully written, and haunting. I read it in one massive binge one Bank Holiday, because I couldn't put it down.

Also recommend I Am Pilgrim and Three Hours.

@Chelsea26 Sarum is one of my favourite books ever!
anything by Robert Goddard would be my other recommendation.
