The Time of Our Lives by Jane Costello

Three best friends. One five-star hotel. Will it be the holiday of a lifetime . . .?
Imogen and her friends Meredith and Nicola have had their fill of budget holidays, cattle-class flights and 6 a.m. offensives for a space by the pool.
So when Meredith wins a VIP holiday at Barcelona's hippest new hotel, they plan to sip champagne with the jet set, party with the glitterati and switch off in unapologetic luxury.
But when the worst crisis of her working life erupts back home, Imogen has to juggle her BlackBerry with a Manhattan, while soothing a hysterical boss and hunting down an AWOL assistant.
Between a robbery, a run-in with hotel security staff and an encounter on a nudist beach that they'd all rather forget, the friends stumble from one disaster to the next. At least Imogen has a distraction in the form of the gorgeous guy who's always in the right place at the very worst time. Until, that is, his motives start to arouse a few suspicions . . . 

My View

If you think you're having a tough time....wait until you meet Imogen!

The Time of Our Lives is another brilliant book by Jane Costello. From the opening chapter when you meet Imogen, Meredith and Nicola, 3 best friends coming back from a trip to Zante talking about bowel issues you know you are about to become the fly on the wall 4th friend.

The book grabs you from the start and has you howling with laughter throughout. It centres around the girls going on a VIP holiday to Barcelona, and you soon discover that it isn't going to be the plain sailing, relaxing holiday they were expecting. The story centres on Imogen, but her friends are more than extras, they are pivotal to telling her story. Whilst very very funny there are a number of really touching beautiful moments where you discover more about Imogen and her life. You may even be reaching for tissues at times.

I don't want to spoil the book by telling you what happens but I guarantee you will have bundles of fun. This is a perfect read for the beach or actually anywhere!

Jane Costello knows exactly how to write a great feel good book that leaves you with a beaming smile, and I can't wait for her next one.
