Sam Derbyshire

It’s that time of year again. The annual lads’ golf trip. Sun. Sea but not usually Sex.

For Steve it’s a much-needed break from work – and his wife, Lucy. Lucy’s at home with their two small children, mired in half-eaten fish fingers and laundry. She’s just not as much fun as she was. But Steve, handsome and successful, if easily led, won’t stray. Will he?

"Comic twists, dark moments and well-drawn characters are three of the pleasures of the rollicking read that is Sam Derbyshire’s funny, smart commentary on modern relationships."

from The Highland News

Can women really be trusted when they’ve had too many cocktails?

Or men be trusted to look after the kids?


Two days, ten women and far too many Jagerbombs. What could possibly go wrong?
