WHERE MEMORIES ARE MADE BY LYNDA PAGE 
OUT 3 JULY 
THE BLURB 
Jolly’s campers are guaranteed to have a holiday to remember, but that’s not always easy to achieve thanks to the array of colourful characters who pour through Jolly’s gates.
Jackie Sims works in the general office and her ambition is one day to be in charge. But she never wanted her lucky break to come about through such tragic circumstances… While Drina Jolly goes away to help her family come to terms with their grief, she puts her faith in Jackie to keep the business running smoothly and Jackie is determined she will do whatever it takes not to let her down.
Despite her resilience and resourcefulness, Jackie can’t run the camp on her own and the abrupt, unapproachable temporary camp manager, Harold Rose, seems unwilling to help her. But she has an ally in fun-loving, red-headed receptionist Ginger Williams whose support she will need to help her through the turmoil, chaos and heartbreak that is about to come her way.
Following on from The Time of our Lives, Lynda Page’s nostalgic saga of fun, frolics and mayhem at a seaside holiday camp is sure to delight anyone who has ever enjoyed an English holiday beside the sea.
