Imogen is a single Mum with a demanding job and doesn't find herself with much down time so when a friend of hers, Meredith, wins a VIP holiday to Barcelona they, together with friend Nicola, decide its about time they leave the kids and jobs at home and have a luxury holiday. I loved reading all about Barcelona as its the last place I went on holiday so it brought back lots of memories. The group are staying in an amazing hotel which is great fun to read about.
I adored the characters in this book, especially Meredith who has been through some awful things in her past and takes some massive steps to move on during her getaway. She managed to balance so many things in her life at once I have no idea how she copes. But then again looking at some of the situations she gets herself into, maybe coping isn't the word for it!
The story is packed full of fun, sun and giggles. Like in all Jane Costello books, the characters just pop out of the pages making it such an engaging story. There are so many twists and turns while these three friends get themselves into some almighty pickles, that you'll be swept away in the story and will enjoy every second of it. Definitely one to pack in your suitcase for laugh out loud beach reading.
The back page blurb:
Three best friends. One five-star hotel. Will it be the holiday of a lifetime ...? Imogen and her friends Meredith and Nicola have had their fill of budget holidays, cattle-class flights and 6 a.m. offensives for a space by the pool. So when Meredith wins a VIP holiday at Barcelona's hippest new hotel, they plan to sip champagne with the jet set, party with the glitterati and switch off in unapologetic luxury. But when the worst crisis of her working life erupts back home, Imogen has to juggle her BlackBerry with a Manhattan, while soothing a hysterical boss and hunting down an AWOL assistant. Between a robbery, a run-in with hotel security staff and an encounter on a nudist beach that they'd all rather forget, the friends stumble from one disaster to the next. At least Imogen has a distraction in the form of the gorgeous guy who's always in the right place at the very worst time. Until, that is, his motives start to arouse a few suspicions.
