Elizabeth has her heart set on a traditional English seaside holiday (five-star - naturally), and her oh-so-well-to-do estate agent husband Howard agrees to pay, because that is largely what Howard is for. Except that he wants to stay in London with the object of his lust, Zoo-Zoo. Their neighbour Dotty, who envies like crazy Elizabeth's lifestyle (not to say all of her brand new summer things), determines on the very same holiday, but Dotty's impoverished husband comes up with an appalling alternative (don't even ask) while their fifteen year-old son Colin is yearning after a girl - any girl.

An easy read, but not that funny. Characters were a bit too over the top. Read full review
