Publisher's Summary

Evie is desperate for a holiday - a good one. Not only because she's been working all hours as a receptionist for two high-powered plastic surgeons but also because every holiday she's ever been on has involved sunburn, arguments and projectile vomiting - sometimes all three at once. Why can't she have a normal holiday like everyone else? Peaceful beaches, glorious sunshine and (fingers crossed) some much-needed sex?

So when Evie's employers invite her to attend a conference with them in the beautiful South of France, she can't believe her luck. At last, the chance to hobnob with the rich and glamorous, to party under the stars, to live life as she's always dreamt of it. It's the holiday of a lifetime - but things don't happen in quite the way Evie imagines....

Critic Reviews

" Operation Sunshine sizzles.... A perfect read." (Louise Bagshawe)
"A Jenny Colgan novel is as essential for a week in the sun as Alka Seltzer, aftersun and far too many pairs of sandals." ( Heat)
"Fast-paced, funny, poignant and well observed." ( Daily Mail)
"The perfect summer sunbather, easy to read, packed with gags and truths." ( Irish News)
"Sheer indulgence from start to finish." (Sophie Kinsella)
"Sweeter than a bag of jelly beans...had us eating up every page." ( Cosmopolitan)
"One for those lazy afternoons at the beach." ( Take a Break)

Absolutely horrible main character

Story is ridiculous, main character is so horribly unlikeable and most other characters also revolting and really nasty.

Slow start

Slow start and quite depressing- almost gave up on it but last 2/3rds like a different book and back to what you would expect a Jenny Colgan book to be like
