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.

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…
