*** CONGRATULATIONS TO THE BRITISH BOOK AWARDS AUTHOR OF THE YEAR 2022***

THE SUNDAY TIMES NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER FROM THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF GROWN UPS, MARIAN KEYES

'JUST BRILLIANT'
SUNDAY TIMES
___________

'Myself and Hugh . . . We're taking a break.'

'A city-with-fancy-food sort of break?'


If only.


Amy's husband Hugh says he isn't leaving her.

He still loves her, he's just taking a break - from their marriage, their children and, most of all, from their life together.

Six months in South-East Asia. And nothing she says can stop him.

But when does a break become a break-up?

A lot can happen in six months. And it's enough to send Amy and her family of gossips, misfits and troublemakers teetering over the edge.

When Hugh returns, if he returns, will he be the same man she married?

Will Amy be the same woman?


Because if Hugh is on a break from their marriage, then . . . isn't she on one too?

Bill yo-no watch ,

Lovely

A story that was lovely had me feeling ups and downs of relationships. I found the main character relatable and the story engaging. A lovely read.

Took a while to warm up to

Over all a great story. Just took about half the book until I was looking forward to reading more.

Good book

It’s a good book.
I didn’t completely love it, maybe I’m too young.
