Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A writer with her finger well and truly on the pulse of modern family life. This takes us on holiday to the Caribbean with a group of friends who have been holidaying together for years, nice comfortable stuff until sex raises its ugly head. I think she is very good, astute, easy to read and infectious.
Comparison: Jill Mansell, Wendy Holden, Mavis Cheek.
Similar this month: Pauline McLynn, Tony Parsons.

If you like Judy Astley you might also like to read books by Katie Fforde, Isla Dewar and Jill Mansell.

To make matters worse, Beth has insisted on bringing along their sixteen-year-old daughter Delilah, who¹s been ill and needs rest and sunshine. Not so ill, however, that she canât look around for some entertainment…

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