This is the second book of Tasha Harrison’s that I’ve read, the first being ‘Hot Property’. I loved this book just as much as the first for its portrayal of real-life characters who don’t descend into stereotypes, its humour and great storyline. The book is filled with typical characters that anyone could meet on a package holiday but it’s the way that they interact that is so brilliantly done. If you’re looking for a light read that isn’t ‘fluffy’ then this is for you. Of course, it also has th ...more

Loved this book! It was the perfect sun lounger companion in Corfu. Set on the island of Kefalonia it's the story of a group of British holidaymakers and their antics abroad. I really liked the characters and am pretty sure I've met a few in my time. It was funny with real life more serious issues added in. Would recommend!

Loved it!! All the typical people you see on holiday casting aside their lives for a few days... or are they? Tangled webs which get intermingled. A really good , enjoyable read.

This book was a good, fun read. I thought it would have a little more interaction within all the different characters and I would've loved more of a fun in the sun, party atmosphere. On that aspect, it was a little bit of a disappointment but it was overall a good book.

A nice light-hearted look at Britons on holiday.

Imagine yourself arriving at your holiday destination (which you booked as a package deal) and realising that the motley bunch on the coach with you are to be your "neighbours" for the next week, like it or not. Such is the position that the book's hero, Mia, finds herself in when she opts to holiday solo in Kefalonia. It seems a strange thing to do - turn down the invitation of friends to join them on holiday, and to go somewhere completely different alone - but dentist Mia has a genuine motive ...more

Holiday shenanigans which were a bit predictable but nonetheless an enjoyable and humorous read.
''At first glance, it seems to Mia that the occupants of the neighbouring apartments are a typical bunch of Brits abroad – loud, embarrassing, to be avoided. But then she wasn't there to socialise with other holidaymakers. She had come to Kefalonia to pay someone a surprise visit.
Meanwhile, her neighbours, young lovers Jo and Nathan are looking forward to two weeks of sun, sea and sex, while bosom bud

A really fun, sunny holiday romp!

The plot follows a group of Brits abroad in Kefalonia taking in their stereotypical behaviour and turning it into an adventurous romp. It brings together the fun of Carry On films without the cheesy jokes or the sexist behaviour (well, apart from a few characters) and a huge helping of soap opera.

However, as with all the best ‘light-hearted’ reading this is more complex than it appears. Harrison has 12 main characters, all with excess baggage and a life-changing

A light and enjoyable holiday read. The main character is Mia who ends up with a coachload of holiday makers, some of whom really shouldn't be let out at all, let alone loose abroad. This is a story of Brits abroad, laughter and romance. Good characterization and an interesting storyline and some unexpected twists and turns as well.

This book made me giggle as several of the characters are like people you think you’ve met before on holiday. It was fast-paced and fun but a few less light-hearted moments contributed to the realism of a true holiday experience.

Great book that is set in Greece. The descriptions made me want to go on a trip there. Great characters. I liked that there were more than a couple to keep me entertained.

If you'd like a little sunshine in your reading, my two brazen beach reads will brighten up your day.

Package Deal is about a group of British holidaymakers whose lives become entangled on the Greek island of Kefalonia. There is romance, rivalry, fraud and deception, and no one's holiday turns out quite how they expected.

Meanwhile, Hot Property is about a community of expats who aspire to 'live the
