MY BLOG REVIEW FOR THE HOLIDAY HOME BY FERN BRITTON

on June 15, 2014

THE HOLIDAY HOME BY FERN BRITTON 
THE BLURB 
Two sisters, one house, a lifetime of secrets.

Set on a Cornish cliff, Atlantic House has been the jewel in the Carew family crown for centuries. Each year, the Carew sisters embark on the yearly trip down to Cornwall for the summer holidays, but they are as different and vinegar and honey.

Prudence, hard-nosed businesswoman and married to the meek and mild Francis, is about to get a shock reminder that you should never take anything for granted.

Constance, homemaker and loving wife to philandering husband Greg, has always been out-manoeuvred by her manipulative sibling. But now that Pru wants to get her hands on Atlantic House, Connie is not about to take things lying down.

When an old face reappears on the scene, years of simmering resentments reach boiling point. But little do the women know that a long-buried secret is about to bite them all on the bottom. Can Constance and Pru put their feuding aside for the sake of everyone else, or will this family holiday push them all over the edge?
WHAT I HAVE TO SAY 
I really did enjoy this book it was so easy to follow i got lost in the story it got a few shock in there to
Pur is very different to her sister constance 
Pur is a businesswomen she loves her work and all way gets what she want she married to francis she walks all over him i think were constance more a house wife she loves her husband greg so much he her world she got the prefect life or has she she unaware of him having a affair she very laid back and easy going i think 
All the characters were very real each with their own personalities some i like some i did not 
I think both sister had when they were young a very string sibling rivalry and this has not changed that much now they have there own family life’s
Each year the whole family go to cornwall to the family home there mum and dad brought when they were small 
The book got love,lost ,lives, jealousy hiding secrets parties , deaths and births it got it all for you 
I like now tragedy brought them all together more but i still felt the sister had to be better than each other all they time i hope they could work together more 
Dorothy and Harry the grandparents were fab i like now the got a bit of a secret to hid from the family they were so like i remember my grandad and grandma being if i wanted something and my mum said no i ask them and i get it it was so like harry and his granddaughter birthday that what my would have done for me
