Octavia knew it was Scott’s fault and she had been urging Roberta to leave Scott and his abusive ways for a long time.

The story follows Roberta and Octavia, two women who have been friends for years and are nearing the wrong side of forty. Our Resort and Private Villas provides an ideal quiet getaways, romantic holidays, family gathering and secluded corporate retreats.

The differences between them are noticeable; but they overcome these differences to become best friends. It uses alternating chapters for the characters which is a great way to get both stories and points of view. Having absolutely adored Kerry Fisher's After the Lie, I knew immediately I was in for another winner, but I was still expecting a humorous, light-hearted chic-lit beach-type romance story.

But despite not always agreeing with their choices, I truly cared for Octavia and Roberta and even envied them on their relationship and the strong bond they nurtured for years. If I was to go back again I would try to book cabin number 5009 - it was the most spacious - nearly double the size of the standard cabins. She also relatively quickly tries experimenting on the dating market and learns a wonderful man, but even then Scott manages to destroy this relationship. My favorite male character was Jake, who in my opinion is one of the best male fictional characters I've ever read about. What if she had stayed together with her first love, Xavi, on the island where she spent many of her summers?There were so many delicate intricacies within each woman's life, tricky situations, things that I'd have no idea how to deal with it had been myself dealing with them. People will make mistakes, they’ll hurt other people, they’ll change their minds and at times say things they might regret later but that’s what life is about. The whole thing is a low budget action-horror-sci-fi film, featuring some middle brow acting, decent practical effects, and- what seems like- a pretty straight forward storyline (at least at first).
