Publisher Description

Four women - Paula, Jennifer, Brenda and Rachel - all at a crossroads in their lives. All with difficult choices to make. All badly in need of a holiday…

Paula is beautiful, ambitious and successful, she works hard and plays hard. Men find her irresistible...except for the one man she really wants.

In her late thirties, Brenda longs for glamour and excitement. Tired of being a housewife stuck at home with her children, she is determined to make changes in her life. Then the unthinkable happens.

Shy and timid, Rachel has always been dominated by her cold, intolerant father. But beneath the surface she is bubbling with suppressed rage. Does she have the courage to finally become her own woman?

Jennifer is a true friend to them all. But when tragedy strikes, will Paula, Brenda and Rachel be there for Jennifer when she needs them?

When the four women stay in a luxurious villa on a Greek island, they soon realize that they have embarked on more than just a foreign holiday. Amidst rows, arguments, laughter and fun they come to see each other in a different light. Can their friendships be sustained? Indeed, will their lives ever be the same again?

Great read

I truly enjoyed this book and the story it told. It painted a vivid picture of the life of these young women, which was page turning, fun and often heartbreaking.
However, the editing needs a revamp. In numerous parts throughout the book, it read ".....you've got another think coming".
It's not think, it's THING!

Lovely story

This story is very well written- a story of true friendship with all its trials and tribulations. You are brought through the emotional journey of the 4 major characters- Paula, Jennifer, Brenda and Rachel. Highly recommended read.

I want a sequel!

I loved this book. At times some of the characters infuriated me. It was written in a way that had me wanting more constantly.
What happens next? Sequel please?!
Thanks for an amazing book.
Patricia never fails to deliver.
