Wish You Were Here

by Mike Gayle

Wish You Were Here Synopsis

A brilliant romantic comedy exploring beach basics for the broken-hearted from number one bestselling author Mike Gayle. Their holiday brochure said 18-30 . . . But they've just turned 35. After ten years together Charlie Mansell has been dumped by his live-in girlfriend, Sarah. All he wants to do is wallow in misery, but mates Andy and Tom have a better idea: a week of sun, sea and souvlaki in Malia, party capital of the Greek islands. But Charlie and his mates aren't eighteen any more. Or even under thirty. And it shows. It isn't the cheap beer, the late nights or even the fast-food that's the problem. It's girls. And life. And most of all . . . each other. WISH YOU WERE HERE is a heart-warming, funny and wise tale about love and friendship and how seven days in the sun can change your life forever.

Wish You Were Here Press Reviews

A delightfully witty tale * Star * This book makes great beach reading . . . A heartwarming and funny tale. * Love It! * If we needed more proof that men don't think like women, then Wish You Were Here delivers it in extra strength doses . . . A fun story of three 30 somethings as they come to rueful - and thankful - realisation that they are no longer 18. * Candis * The prolific Mike Gayle knows a thing or two about the male psyche, and how not even an extended adolescence will prevent the pain from catching up in the end. * Herald * An observant offering * Heat * As you'd expect from Gayle, the laughs flow thick and fast, making this a top match for your sunny holiday spirits. * Glamour * This has the makings of another Mike Gayle classic . . . this is spot on, easy beach read. Just add sangria. * Independent * 'Mike Gayle's the guy to give us a tantalising insight into the way men's minds tick . . . this romantic romp is bound to be another huge success . . . a feel-good read with lots of laughs.' * Woman * spot on, easy beach read. Just add sangria! * Independent *
