About the Author
Kerry was brought up in Peterborough. She now lives in Surrey with a very tolerant husband and two children. She studied at Bath University and speaks fluent Italian, Spanish and French. She also trained as a journalist at City University, then went on to write travel guidebooks for Thomas Cook.
After landing her dream job working on women’s magazines, she discovered that she hated writing about real people in case their families got upset.
The Writers’ Program at the University of California helped her move from fact into fiction – the perfect forum for exploring human emotions without worrying about some poor mother weeping over her son’s account of his childhood.

Normally, a book cover like this wouldn’t entice me – a bit too twee – but because I loved her other book so much, I thought I’d give this one a go.
I opened it on my Kindle, and the first line grabbed me:
‘I was wearing the wrong bra for sitting in a police cell’.
I never looked back.
The book tells the story from two first person POV’s. Roberta Green and Octavia Shelton have been friends since school. But when Roberta’s marriage begins to fall apart, Octavia starts to question her relationship with her steady-but-annoying-as-hell (my words not hers) husband, Jonathan.
Even though the subject matter is quite serious (nothing funny about marriage breakups), this book had me laughing so many times, particularly when inside Octavia’s head. She had some of the most wonderfully funny phrases. During one conversation with Roberta….”Just be grateful you haven’t got boobs that you can tuck into the top of your pants.” Wonderfully real. Brilliantly funny.
Kerry has such an easy writing style. You find yourself swept along by her prose, and before you know it, you are turning the last page and feeling suddenly bereft, as though you have had wonderful friends torn from your life.
If you haven’t read anything by Kerry yet, and you love an easy read with likeable characters about real life stuff, then do check her out. And The Island Escape would be a great place to start.
