Lucy Diamond and Veronica Henry
A Holiday Romance
Bestselling authors Lucy Diamond and Veronica Henry discuss their latest novels, An Almost Perfect Holiday and A Wedding at the Beach Hut, both set in the West Country. They examine why holidays are such fertile ground for drama – strained friendships, precarious marriages, budding romance, the pressure to relax and have a wonderful time – and how all the baggage comes with us when we go away. They are both experts at putting relationships under the microscope when everything is supposed to be perfect, all written with their trademark wit and warmth. They also discuss why the lure of the English seaside is so attractive to writers – and readers who want an escape.
