Description

An Almost Perfect Holiday is a warm and witty story of friendship, family and hope, by the Sunday Times bestseller Lucy Diamond.

'No one creates funny, flawed and immediately relatable characters like Lucy. I adored this book from the very first page' - Cathy Bramley, bestselling author of A Patchwork Family.

The holidays are here, and down in Cornwall Lorna's cottages are fully booked. The sun loungers are lined up beside the swimming pool, the sky is blue and a new set of arrivals are on their way . . .

Em's planned the perfect break with her teenagers plus her new boyfriend, George . . . but now his difficult six-year-old is coming too. Will their romance survive the realities of parenthood?

Maggie's hoping a seaside holiday will bring her and her daughter closer together, but when her ex makes a surprise reappearance, it changes everything. Can she trust the man who broke her heart?

Olivia has escaped the domestic grind, only for the past to catch up with her. Maybe the time has come to confess all - if she can find the courage . . .

Meanwhile, the teenagers are running wild and love is in the air. With friendship, heartache and secrets in the mix, will this holiday turn out to be a scorcher - or simply too hot to handle?

'A delight from first page through to last' - Milly Johnson, bestselling author of The Teashop on the Corner.

About Lucy Diamond

Lucy Diamond grew up in Nottingham and has also lived in Leeds, London, Oxford and Brighton. She now lives in Bath with her husband and three children.

An Almost Perfect Holiday is her fifteenth novel, and the idea for this particular book came to her when she was lying by a swimming pool in France, shamelessly eavesdropping on the family who were holidaying next door. She apologizes if that was you but is very grateful for all the juicy material she overheard. In fact, she couldn't have written this one without you.
