In my family, British TV shows are our absolute favorite! We’re all big fans of British shows like Downton Abbey, Merlin, or The Great British Bake Off. I think there’s nothing better than watching a cozy murder mystery or slow-burn romance set in the UK. Lately, my family and I have been obsessed with Poldark on PBS Masterpiece. I’ve been enjoying the Poldark books!

The show is terrific. Watching Ross Poldark begin rebuilding his life and meeting various new characters was entertaining. Because I love the show, I was stoked to discover it’s actually based on a book series. There are 12 books in the saga by Winston Graham. This series is a perfect introduction to Poldark and an excellent add-on for fans of the show! Also, it’s a great fit for readers that enjoy historical fiction, romance, and suspense.
