The Time of Our Lives by Jane Costello
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Five years ago Olivia’s husband was killed in a car accident before he met his daughter. Olivia has had a tough few years but now at last she feels she can leave her daughter, young Florence, with her mother and go on holiday with her two best friends. Trouble is both her boss and her mother can’t stop contacting her, which hardly makes for a relaxed holiday. However she does meet someone and we follow their developing relationship and some dramatic moments in a humorous read, so typical of this lovely author. She is very good.

Synopsis

The Time of Our Lives by Jane Costello

Three best friends. One five-star hotel. Will it be the holiday of a lifetime ...? Imogen and her friends Meredith and Nicola have had their fill of budget holidays, cattle-class flights and 6 a.m. offensives for a space by the pool. So when Meredith wins a VIP holiday at Barcelona's hippest new hotel, they plan to sip champagne with the jet set, party with the glitterati and switch off in unapologetic luxury. But when the worst crisis of her working life erupts back home, Imogen has to juggle her BlackBerry with a Manhattan, while soothing a hysterical boss and hunting down an AWOL assistant. Between a robbery, a run-in with hotel security staff and an encounter on a nudist beach that they'd all rather forget, the friends stumble from one disaster to the next. At least Imogen has a distraction in the form of the gorgeous guy who's always in the right place at the very worst time. Until, that is, his motives start to arouse a few suspicions ...Hilarious and heart-warming by turns, The Time of Our Lives is Jane Costello at her romantic best.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
