Just for the Holidays is about Leah Beaumont who accompanies her sister, Michele, to France to enjoy a lovely, relaxing, summer basking in the sunshine and lazing around. Well, maybe not so much of the lazing. Or the relaxing. There are three teenagers there too. And Michele's husband - who she is divorcing. Oh, and Michele is pregnant. A surprise pregnancy which she hasn't yet told her children about. Hhmm. Yes, not quite what Leah signed up for.

Not only did she not sign up for it, she didn't expect that she would end up trying to hold it all together and stop everything from totally falling apart. But, hang on, that next door neighbour - yes, the pilot....a very handsome pilot.....well, might he help distract Leah from the drama of her family and allow her a little bit of fun?

This is the first Sue Moorcroft book I have read but I can definitely see why they are so popular and why she has such a loyal fan base. I was struck by the energy of the storyline. The balance between character development, action and plot is well judged so it is well paced and speeds along but, unlike Leah's driving, there is enough time to take in the scenery around you and build definite pictures of all the characters who fall and crash through the pages.

Leah is our protagonist and she is very likeable. We empathise with her and admire her tolerance, patience and persistence with her sister and her nephews and nieces. I think a lot of readers will relate to her and she offers a more grounded perspective against her sister's antics. Well, most of the time. When she's not speeding or the few other things she does that reveal a slightly more unexpected side of her character!

Michele made me smile.

Leah accompanies her sister on holiday, driving over in her Porsche Cayenne, whilst the family members travel in the Pink Pig people carrier (yes, it’s pink!). But this is not a run-of-the-mill family vacation, because sister Michele and brother-in-law Alister are in the final throes of their marriage, one last joint holiday for the 2 children, Natasha and Jordan. Leah’s role is part interlocutor, part cook and bottle washer (she is after all a creative genius when it comes to delicious puds) and part dilutor of marital distress. Leah is certainly thrown in at the deep end – just how do you cope with 2 teenagers, who hook up with a third young man from next door, when you have focussed solely on work and cars and given little – actually no – consideration to parenting!

As it happens there is a potential love interest in the shape of Ronan next door (father of aforementioned young man), who is a helicopter pilot recovering from a shoulder injury sustained from a forced landing. He is currently on sick leave, renovating their summer house.

There are quite a few unfortunate developments on their holiday – potentially making it the holiday-from-hell for Leah – but she is a likeable and resilient young woman who thrives in adversity; and keeps the show on the road for the others who are all grappling with their own emotional turmoil and wimping out.

The setting is delightful and as a reader I was there in the gîte, with Leah and co., soaking up the French atmosphere, food and ambience. Enjoy!

This book has it all and I loved it.
I'd originally saved it for my holiday but after reading one chapter yesterday, I finished it this morning!
Once again sue has delivered the whole package, characters with their individual issues, you'll love them, want to shout at them, teenage dramas that make you giggle cos you can relate to them or you've been there and done it.
I always enjoy the detail in sues books, you can't help but be drawn In, whether that's the beautiful setting, or the smell and taste of the chocolate with Leah.
The sneaky peak into sues next book is a real treat too, just wish it was out sooner :-)

Absolutely fabulous read...family at its best and worse. A holiday to remember, friendship, love, humour, food, drink all set in France. The story follows them all home to England with more twists and turns than a country road. Not forgetting the man in uniform...a pilot, no less. A refreshing dose of reality without being oppressive. Thoroughly enjoyed this book, highly recommend you try it too.

I think this is Sue Moorcroft’s best novel yet – loved the hero (delicious!) and his adolescent son, and really empathised with the poor heroine whose own holiday plans are totally derailed by her thoughtless (and selfish!) sister’s. Families in turmoil following the break-up of marriages are so well portrayed and I really felt for the teenaged children, always the ones to get stuck in the middle. I didn’t want the story to end and the characters have stayed in my mind – always a sign of a brilliant novel!

This book was such a joy to read.
When Leah agrees to accompany her sister and her sister’s family on their holiday to France she knows there will be problems ahead. But the difficulties take an unexpected turn when Leah finds her own heart caught up in a dilemma of its own.
Lots of fun and laughter as well as some more serious incidents make this a great read. Highly recommended.
