Main characters are well-developed and believable. Although mainly narrated by the main character, Clair, shifting the narrative to other characters (Fraser, Howard, Maggie) and viewing the same events through their eyes deepens the story nicely. McVernon also creates for the reader a very appealing setting for the Greek island, Symi. If many read this novel, Symi should brace for an influx of visitors. Frequently funny, the novel contains enough emotional depth to keep it from being frivolous and unreal while making it very enjoyable and worthwhile. I’m looking forward to her next one!
An absolute ‘must’ for ladies of a certain age, especially if you have a teenage daughter … and even better if you are familiar with package holidays and Greek islands! Men will love it too, I’m sure; there is lots of humour and Lynne has captured some wonderful moments.
