This is a hugely enjoyable read and if you have ever shared a family holiday with friends and their children, this novel will have you laughing and squirming as you remember all the ups and downs of your time away together. You will be caught up with the lives of the three mothers and itâs fascinating how your sympathies for them change as the story unfolds. The plot develops in an unexpected but satisfying way and you feel a sense of loss at the end when the holiday ends and your involvement with the characters also ceases. This is a funny, affectionate book but also wise. It reinforces how important our female friends are to us and also our relationships with our children. A five star read!

If you like Annie Sanders you might also like to read books by Lou Wakefield, Carole Matthews and Mavis Cheek.

Synopsis

Warnings of Gales by Annie Sanders

Imogen, who organised the holiday, is frighteningly capable and a bit of a control freak. With three children who are at the centre of her world, she's determined that this holiday will be perfect. But is Imogen's tidy life quite as happy as it seems?

Sophie is Imogen's oldest friend, dating back to the days when they would chat long after lights out at their Home Counties boarding school. Sophie knows she should be feeding her offspring organic cous-cous, but they love McDonalds' apple pies too much - and where's the harm in that? But is there more to Sophie than dogged loyalty to her rather overbearing old mate?

And then there's Jo, an acquaintance of Sophie's roped in at the last minute when the first choice of housemate pulled out. An East London GP and single mother, and very easy going with her son, she appears to be the polar opposite to Imogen.

A group holiday seemed such a good idea back in January ...
