Synopsis

THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Two weeks in a remote island villa with America's most dysfunctional family - what could possibly go wrong?

It was set to be the family vacation of a lifetime.

From Manhattan to Majorca, two weeks in a remote island villa, with the sort of relaxation, culture and cuisine that only Europe can offer. At least, that was Franny's plan. She wasn't counting on the extra baggage . . .

Warm, wry and glowing with life, The Vacationers is a glorious novel of marriage, friendship, secrets, lies - and love.

In the media

A gem of a smart beach read.
Good Housekeeping
A fun read - a delightful story with an even more delightful end.
The Lady
Straub's novel is cast from the same mould as the likes of Liza Klaussmann's Tigers in Red Weather and Maggie Shipstead's Seating Arrangements . . . The Vacationers is a holiday read in every way with a gently witty narrative that slips down as easily as a beachside cocktail.
