Twenty-eight-year-old Nina lives a quiet, unassuming life, happy (ish) with her job, maybe not quite as happy with her non-existent love-life (but no one can have everything, right?) and content to trundle along with her nice, predictable daily routine.
That is, until Nina is persuaded to accompany her octogenarian grandmother on a beach holiday to Turkey. Nina envisages sedate walks along the promenade, afternoon naps by the pool, and bingo in the evening.
What she actually gets is too much vodka, adult games of “pin the tail on the donkey” and dancing on a bar whilst flaunting her knickers – and that’s just her gran!
After reading Lilac’s previous novel Under the cherry tree I was so excited about being asked to read and review her next book. This one was so funny, I got funny looks whilst reading this one on the bus. Nina is the main character but I have to say her gran is absolutely hilarious. Nina takes her gran on holiday with her and some of the things they get up to… so funny. Lilac Mills is certainly an author I want to read more of in the future.
I was given an advanced reading copy of this book for an honest review.
