Sun, sea, sand - how can a hen week in Turkey go wrong A laugh-out-loud romantic comedy from bestselling author Chris Manby.
When Rachel Buckley announces that she is going to get married, her best friends Yaslyn and Carrie Ann can't wait to give her a proper send-off. No second-rate male stripper in a smoky bar for Rachel though. The girls choose instead to take a 'hen week' in Turkey, in the all-inclusive surroundings of luxurious holiday resort, Club Aegee.
It should be the perfect trip. But all three girls are bringing along more than their luggage. While Rachel looks forward to her wedding day with excitement, Carrie Ann wonders why the pain of her abusive marriage didn't end when the decree nisi arrived and Yaslyn considers the possibility that she might never be ready to marry her patient boyfriend Euan.
Add unlimited free cocktails, rampant reps and a nasty dose of sunstroke and suddenly 'getting away from it all' comes dangerously close to 'going back to nothing'. Can three firm friendships survive just seven sunny days
Manby's hilarious novels still shine out on the sea of chick lit, and if you want to guarantee a good giggle by the pool this summer her latest unique offering, featuring three feisty girls off on a luxury hen holiday, is the perfect sunbathing companion. - OK!
