Summary

An Almost Perfect Holiday is a warm and witty story of friendship, family and hope, by the Sunday Times bestseller Lucy Diamond.

The holidays are here, and down in Cornwall Lorna’s cottages are fully booked. The sun loungers are lined up beside the swimming pool, the sky is blue and a new set of arrivals are on their way....

Em’s planned the perfect break with her teenagers plus her new boyfriend, George...but now his difficult six-year-old is coming too. Will their romance survive the realities of parenthood?

Maggie’s hoping a seaside holiday will bring her and her daughter closer together, but when her ex makes a surprise reappearance, it changes everything. Can she trust the man who broke her heart?

Olivia has escaped the domestic grind, only for the past to catch up with her. Maybe the time has come to confess all - if she can find the courage....

Meanwhile, the teenagers are running wild and love is in the air. With friendship, heartache and secrets in the mix, will this holiday turn out to be a scorcher - or simply too hot to handle?

Diss appointed

I have read a few books by LucyDiamond but this one I left half way through because for me it was anything but relaxing it jumped from family to family without enough time for me to realise what was happening x not enough interesting to want to finish . I would like to say also that this is only one persons views I.e mine and it just didn’t suit me so don’t be put off reading it you may love it Susan

Another winner!

I tend to develop a taste for different authors and devour all they have available once I have discovered them. I have been waiting for another Lucy Diamond novel for a while and was not disappointed. Thank you so much for giving me such a wonderful listen. It was comfortable yet different. I love the style and will wait for the next one with eager anticipation!

Boring depressing book

Couldn’t finish the book as it was depressing and boring, jumped from family to family all of which had unhappy parents, fighting toddlers or stroppy teenagers!
