As soon as I started reading and realised just what Laura was escaping from I couldn't help but feel for her. A trip to Miami seems like a good idea and as soon as Laura, Marty and another friend Bridget start their journey it seems like Matthew is out of the picture. Paige Toon does a smashing job in describing the Miami Keys and I found myself wishing my holiday would come sooner. Distraction for Laura comes in the form of Leo who helps the scuba diving courses in the Keys. Laura's instantly attracted to him but is in complete turmoil as she is there to give herself space, not to fall for another man!
What I liked about this story from start to finish was that it really wasn't very clear what Laura was going to do. It didn't feel so cut and dried as some books do and you really feel for Laura as she struggles to make the right decision for both her and her marriage. It was very easy to get completely wrapped up in this book and if it's one you plan to take on holiday, don't plan to move from your sun lounger for too long. There wasn't any part of the book that I didn't enjoy with one small exception. Towards the end when I was still reeling from Laura's initial decision, another major event takes place. What niggled me was that this happened literally a few chapters from the end and before I knew it I was reading the epilogue. Don't get me wrong it certainly didn't spoil the book but I couldn't help feeling it was a bit rushed.
I know that there were some small references to characters from other books, but I have yet to read some of her older work so wouldn't have noticed the link as I'm reading her books out of sequence. Overall, I think this was an absolutely brilliant book and would really recommend it to people. When you are making your holiday packing list, don't forget to include The Longest Holiday at the end!
I really enjoyed the moral dilemmas that it threw up and it made me question what things you are prepared to forgive your partner for in a relationship.
Beautifully written and breathtakingly emotional, this story really moved me.
I will definitely be reading more from this author
