Sometimes, the hardest part of staying together is keeping a straight face... Ever wish you could leave all your problems behind and make a fresh start somewhere else? Trade the stresses and strains of everyday life for your own slice of sun-kissed paradise on the other side of the world? Jamie and Laura Newman certainly have. When Jamie's spectacular meltdown at work results in him being handed his P45, and Laura finds her working days end up with her rugby tackling defenceless pensioners in the high street, a move ten thousand miles away sounds ideal. After all, it might mend some of the cracks that have appeared in their marriage over the past few months... So when Laura is offered a new job in Australia, the Newman family think their dreams have come true. But as the old saying goes - be careful what you wish for, you might just get it. As the hapless couple soon find out, problems have a way of following you, no matter how far you go to avoid them. Can love survive under different skies?

Have read all the Newman family books and loved them all. Lol funny, heart warming and a must read for anyone with a sense of humour!
An absolute gem
This doesn't disappoint. It was absolutely superb and if I could dish out more than 5 stars I happily would. Nick Spalding has delivered another well-written book that is truly hilarious but also covers the serious moments life brings.
Jamie and Laura are a little older, but not much wiser, just as loveable as always and the situations they get themselves into are ridiculous yet quite realistic. Poppy, now aged 3, brought some very amusing moments and herself was a great little character.
I have absolutely loved all 3 books, I can't recommend reading them enough and sincerely hope that the future brings us more from the Newman family.
