What I Did On My Holidays

What I Did On My Holidays

Sophie Sturgeon can’t wait for her annual summer holiday. Not only will it be a week away from work, it will be a chance to reconnect with her boyfriend Callum.

‘Manby’s novels are made for holidays – light enough to pick up and put down, but entertaining enough to keep you happy by the pool.’ – Glamour

So this upcoming trip to Majorca is a big deal. Sophie’s spent a lot of time getting ready. She’s bought a new wardrobe. She’s been waxed to within an inch of her life. She’s determined she and Callum will have the best time ever.

Then Callum dumps her, the night before they’re due to leave. In a show of bravery, Sophie says she’ll go to Majorca alone – but in fact, she hides in her London flat. But when her friends, family, and even Callum seem so surprised and delighted at her independence, Sophie decides to go all out and recreate the ultimate ‘fake break’ . . . with hilarious results.
