Publisher's Summary

A funny, warm and moving novel of family secrets, dilemmas and dynamics from the best-selling author of The Alphabet Sisters.

Tour guide Harriet Turner knows all about journeys. She's arranged hundreds of them for the travel agency her family runs. But when her work colleague and foster sister Lara disappears on the eve of a big overseas trip, Harriet finds herself in uncharted territory.

Left in charge of a coachload of eccentric tourists on a themed tour based on the English TV detective series Willoughby, Harriet soon has her hands full.

But as the bus winds its way through the picturesque countryside of Devon and Cornwall, the tour becomes another kind of journey for her. She finds herself facing big questions about her family, her childhood and her feelings for the guest of honour on the tour, the charming star of Willoughby, Patrick Shawcross. And the biggest puzzle of all: what has happened to Lara?

    Story
    "Boring and repetitive"
    What disappointed you about Family Baggage?

    this book really was a non story and stretched over several hours! One of the most boring repetitive books I have read. Narration was monotonous too


    What could Monica McInerney have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    included a story!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    added no highs and lows to an already boring book


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger for wasting money, I persevered because of overall ratings in the hope it would improve, but it didn't


    Any additional comments?

    none
