really liked it

Despite the topics of adultery, unsettled young adult children, and relationship woes, this book is charming, funny, and engaging. I chuckled. I laughed out loud and think the whole story is clever and delightful. Family and friends load up their baggage, in various forms, and fly off to Majorca for a two-week vacation. It's all about people sorting things out in their lives. From the teen heading off to college to the gay couple who are madly, deeply in love--the characters are fully drawn and supply a wealth of angst as well as amusement.

This quick read will bring a smile to your face. The title tells you--perfect beach read! Enjoy!
