Content descriptions

General Note: Originally published in Great Britain under the title The Holiday by Zaffre, Bonnier Books UK in 2019.
Summary, etc.: "Four lifelong friends on a luxurious vacation come face-to-face with an explosive secret. It was supposed to be the perfect vacation, dreamed up by Kate as the ideal way to turn 40: four best friends and their husbands and children, spending a week in a luxurious villa under the blazing sunshine of Provence. But there is trouble in paradise. Kate suspects that her husband is having an affair-and that the other woman is one of her best friends. One of these women is willing to sacrifice years of friendship and destroy her family. But which one? As Kate closes in on the truth in the stifling Mediterranean heat, she realizes-too late-that the stakes are far higher than she ever imagined. And someone in the villa may be prepared to kill to keep their lies hidden"--

    When four old friends arrive at a French villa with their families for a vacation, things are fraught. The women have begun to drift apart, the children can't get along, and a wealth gap among the families is glaring. Kate, the main character, is determined to make the best of it until she finds texts between her husband, Sean, and someone else in the house that point to an affair that will be revealed in the course of the vacation. In the pages that follow, readers are taken to the edge of several possible reveals, only to have Logan veer off toward a different rival for Kate and further reasons for fear. The tantalizing twists, enjoyably written from various characters' viewpoints, culminate in an unexpected ending that will leave readers thinking about their own relationships and what they would do to save those they love. Logan (29 Seconds, 2019) specializes in portraying the lasting effects of split-second decisions; his fans will enjoy another take on that theme here; recommend also Laura DiSilverio's That Last Weekend (2017).
