The Staycation by Michele Gorman


Two families. One cancelled flight. And a last minute house swap...

Things get desperate for strangers Harriet and Sophie when they become stranded with their families in Heathrow's Terminal 5. Each woman has her own reason for really really really needing the family holiday they've anticipated for months. But Iceland's volcano has other plans for them. When their flights are cancelled, the families swap houses and discover that sometimes the best things in life happen close to home.

This ash cloud has a silver lining, even if no one can quite see it yet.

Ooh, there are some interesting issues indeed in these pages.

Two couples, two marriages, two similar issues within the relationships but approached from different angles and with different intentions, reasons and purposes.

Sorry, I'm being cryptic, I know, but I don't want to give anything away.

I loved Harriet (I think I related to her a bit too much!) and the first chapter drew me in straight away. The rest of the story kept me there.

I wasn't totally sure which way this story would go, so hats off to the author for keeping me guessing.

Well worth reading!
