Chloe needs a holiday. She's sick of making wedding dresses and her partner is having trouble at work. Her wealthy friend Gerard has offered the loan of his luxury villa in Spain - perfect.
Hugh is not a happy man. His immaculate wife seems more interested in the granite for the new kitchen than in him, and he works so hard to pay for it all, he barely has time to see their children. But his old schoolfriend Gerard has lent them a luxury villa in Spain - perfect.
Both families arrive at the villa and get a shock: Gerard has double-booked. An uneasy week of sharing begins, and tensions soon mount in the soaring heat. But there's also a secret history between the families - and as tempers fray, an old passion begins to resurface.
Two couples with kids that have to share the same house for the holiday. An old story of love and a contemporary story of unhappiness and quarrels between husbands. I found the end coming too soon. I wanted to find more about the characters. Easy to read. If you like Sophie Kinsella writing, you'll find this book a nice read.
