Review Text

Not so much a perfect holiday read as the holiday itself: a whole family (three generations) holidays together, which as anyone who has had such an experience will know, is a recipe for disaster, even in the Caribbean sunshine, with a no-expenses-spared luxury hotel, and a chance for children, grandchildren and in-laws to bond, and discover the secret their parents are keeping until the very last moment. But of course the predictable happens: children go missing, teenagers search for grown-up sexual adventures, tensions mount between couples. And to crown it all there's a hurricane, which shocks everyone into a re-evaluation of their lives, relationships - and futures - which is perhaps what the parents, Shirley and Perry, had in mind all the time. Astley's seventh novel demonstrates once again her perception of human reactions to both everyday, and extraordinary, situations. (Kirkus UK)show more
