My Review: I found this book not only funny but interesting too, all the different family dynamics, the judgement and or openness towards Poppy’s job as a sex therapist had me in stitches. Poppy and her family come together for her younger sisters wedding to Dan. They spend the week in a house rented by Poppy’s parents. What could go wrong with so many adults and youngsters under one roof? Loved it, I read the book in one sitting. Ah, I can’t forget to mention the gorgeous Sam who catches Poppy’s Eye and offers her surfing lessons. a definite 5 star read. Apologies for being so late with my blog.

An Un Romantic Comedy

The course of true love never did run smooth, but with Phoebe MacLeod it always gets a chance. Perfect for fans of Jo Watson, Mhairi McFarlane and Portia MacIntosh.

The black sheep is coming home for her sister’s wedding.

One week with the whole family in one house.

What could possibly go wrong?

Poppy is a therapist. You’d think her parents would be proud. But Poppy is the type of therapist that makes her mother cringe – she helps people with their, ahem, bedroom problems…

Normally Poppy deals with her difficult family – two parents, one brother, a couple sisters and an assortment of nieces and nephews – by keeping a county or two between her and them. But with her little sister about to get married there’s no avoiding the week-long family holiday in Cornwall.

The trip was always going to be a catastrophe, but Poppy never imagined how much her family needed her professional skills… Nor did she expect to meet a sexy surfer on what was supposed to be the most unromantic holiday ever.

Can a nightmare holiday lead to the love of a lifetime?
