Thanks to an unexpected windfall, the Bensons are treating themselves to a luxury cruise. With stop-offs in Barcelona, Rome and Marseilles, plus constant entertainment onboard, it’s a dream come true . . . Or is it? Last time Chelsea Benson went on holiday with this lot she nearly went crazy.
Her mum and sister are convinced Chelsea’s boyfriend Adam will propose on the ship. Chelsea’s sure he won’t, but she can’t help feeling butterflies as they set sail. Is Adam going to pop the question, or will the only thing to pop be Chelsea’s ego?
Bill is 87, and he has just won the lottery with a ticket bought for him by his grandchildren for his birthday.
After dividing up the cash amongst his family there is enough left over for one big ‘happy family holiday’.
Along with cocktails and dancing, there are moments of sadness and joy.
Chrissie Manbys novel is a fabulous holiday read. Welcome to The Benson’s idea of fun and laughter. They are normal, entertaining and totally agreeable. I loved little Jack. A cheeky little boy who had me chuckling out loud.
This is a read you won’t put down and Chrissie’s inimitable sense of family is just fabulous.
