No-one Ever Has Sex on Holiday by Tracy Bloom
Get ready to enjoy your first holiday abroad with small children. Highlights include: being woken at 5 every morning and working a gruelling day in 30-degree heat chasing kids around the pool with a bottle of sunscreen. Added features: screaming during mealtimes and toddlers moaning about sand. Absolutely no sex guaranteed or your money back! Katy and Ben and their four closest friends are going to Spain for a week with their kids. Sun, sex and sangria? Almost certainly not. The couples think they are prepared for all the joys and trials a family holiday has to offer but they have a shock coming, and not only from the kids. Into their first day by the pool crashes Ollie, who has just been dumped by his girlfriend, and Cassie, on her hen party holiday but having serious doubts about her impending marriage. A recipe for a relaxing week abroad? Let’s wait and see…
If you're contemplating going on a package holiday with young children, read this. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt,and Ms Bloom is scarily accurate in her description. If you ignore the hen party and the jilted bridegroom, that is.
Funny and well plotted, with fab characters and a suitably uplifting ending, the story had me hooked from the start, right through to the last word.
