LoveReading View on All Inclusive

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.

All Inclusive Synopsis

Do the friendships you make on holiday have anything to do with real life? It might be sensible to hope that they don’t. For the last few years, Beth and Ned have gone to the same Caribbean island to the same luxury spa hotel. There they meet the same crowd, and take up where they left off last time. Real life, home life, family life, are all safely left behind.

Except this year. This year, home problems have somehow tagged along for the ride. Ned has been playing away -­ a bit of a drunken fling, that’s all, nothing to worry about, Beth thinks. But although they have put it all behind them, what Beth doesn’t know is that Ned’s fling was with the female half of one of the couples they are holidaying with.

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 can’t look around for some entertainment…
