NOW A MAJOR TV DRAMA on Netflix (UK) and SpectrumTV (US)
“T.M. Logan’s latest nail-biter...THE VACATION is a virtual holiday."—Washington Post
In The Vacation, a captivating thriller from T. M. Logan, the bestselling author of Lies and 29 Seconds, four best friends on a dream vacation come face-to-face with an explosive secret.
It was supposed to be the perfect getaway: Kate and her three best friends, spending a week with their families in a luxurious villa in the south of France. Through the decades they’ve stayed closer than ever, and seven days of drinking crisp French wine and laying out under the dazzling Mediterranean sun is the perfect celebration of their friendship. But soon after arriving, Kate discovers an incriminating text on her husband’s cell phone.
A text revealing that he’s having an affair.
And that the other woman is one of her best friends.
But which one?
Trapped in paradise with no one to trust, Kate is determined to find out who has put her marriage—and a lifelong friendship—in jeopardy. But as she closes in on the truth, she realizes that the stakes are higher than she ever imagined. Everyone on the trip has secrets…and someone may be prepared to kill to keep theirs hidden.
Kate, Jennifer, Rowan, and Izzy, best friends since their university days in Bristol, England, gather with their families for what promises to be the holiday of a lifetime at a private estate in the south of France, but instead proves quite the opposite, in this erratic page-turner from British author Logan (29 Seconds). For Kate, a crime analyst with the Metropolitan Police, the spell is broken within hours of arrival when she snoops on husband Sean's phone in hopes of getting a clue as to why he's been so secretive of late and finds messages that suggest he's been having an affair with one of the three friends at the gathering. But is it gracefully athletic Jennifer, his initial college squeeze? Or elegant celebrity publicist Rowan? Or adventurous Izzy, the only one of the gang to have stayed single? Preoccupied with trying to suss out Sean's paramour, Kate pays less attention than she should to the dangerous dynamics among other members of the party, until it may be too late. The twists come fast and furious toward the end, but not especially convincingly. Fans of plot-driven domestic thrillers won't be disappointed. 100,000 announced first printing.
Domestic Thriller with a twist!
I have to be honest I started reading this book thinking great another domestic thriller with a cheating spouse...there’s only a few ways this can go BUT....
A word of caution ⚠️, nothing in this book is what it appears!
This is a twisty thriller about 4 women who met in college, reuniting with each of their families in tow for a luxury vacation in France. The setting is beautiful, the characters are equally relatable and unlikeable, the pacing was perfect, and the author kept throwing red herrings at me to keep me on my toes!
By now everyone knows I love the secrets and lies aspects of books and these people had more than their share, even the kids had secrets.
I thoroughly enjoyed this one, it surprised me! A solid ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ read for me! Thank you @netgalley and @stmartinspress for an advanced digital copy of the book for my honest review!
Chapter after chapter of redherrings until the ladt few unravel a really stupid story
Listen! This book is everything and then some! I typically do not write reviews, but this book was a suspense page turner. Every time I thought I had it figured out, there was another plot twist
