    1. Nearly gave up on this book so many times. The characters were shallow, selfish and two dimensional. I couldn't identify or sympathise with any of them. The plot was nonexistent and the whole book left me rather disappointed.If you enjoy reading about spoiled brats squabbling over mummy and daddy's money then maybe you'll like it more than I did.

    2. An entertaining, quick read. More about families and for the most part in a positive light, which I always enjoy.A couple composed of aging music hippies feel like they want a change, but their grown children who are more straight laced then them worry about them. The children worry about their parents for the future because it's obvious that the hippie parents do not. A typical twist, but entertaining none-the-less. The couple also have a late in life daughter who is just finishing high school, [...]

    3. An amusing read and much better than the last one I read by this author, All Inclusive. However from the cover picture I did actually think the story was going to include some travelling, but it was all about the build up!! Some of the comments reminded me of our own situation, when as 'empty nesters' we decided to sell the family home and come and live abroad.

    4. Absolute trash, just like the last book of hers I read. I wish my Mum hadn't given me these books. They are really not worth reading. I can't stand the way the author writes, you can tell she's really full of her own importance by the language she uses. I'm afraid she got on my nerves from start to finish!

    5. One-time hippies and members of a 60s rock band, Lottie and Mac are planning to sell their large and valuable family house and set off for a world-trip. The fly in the ointment is the trio of grown up children who, for various reasons, are less than happy about their feckless parents spending their inheritance.Good fun.

    6. Liked the concept, enjoyed the characters and it flowed easily. Read this one on my Kindle and only "issue" was that it was not well formatted for the medium. Such is life, didn't change the story; just made it a bit of a challenge in places when the setting, or character pov, changed.

    7. Maybe it's because I am an ageing rocker myself but I really enjoyed this book! Warm and quietly funny rather4 than laugh out loud

    8. good book, nothing special and it took me a while to get through (compared to my other books ) would recommend for an easy read

    9. I listened to this as an audio book and found it perfect. Easy listening. Humorous. Light hearted. I wanted it all to work out predictably. Feel good chick lit.
