Wish You Were Here Paperback
by Mike Gayle
A brilliant romantic comedy exploring beach basics for the broken-hearted from number one bestselling author Mike Gayle. Their holiday brochure said 18-30 ...But they've just turned 35. After ten years together Charlie Mansell has been dumped by his live-in girlfriend, Sarah.
All he wants to do is wallow in misery, but mates Andy and Tom have a better idea: a week of sun, sea and souvlaki in Malia, party capital of the Greek islands. But Charlie and his mates aren't eighteen any more. Or even under thirty. And it shows. It isn't the cheap beer, the late nights or even the fast-food that's the problem.
It's girls. And life. And most of all ...each other. WISH YOU WERE HERE is a heart-warming, funny and wise tale about love and friendship and how seven days in the sun can change your life forever.

Review by cathymoore
Something a bit light and fluffy. It's nice to read this kind of stuff from a male perspective and Gayle's mid-thirties modern man comes across as a really authentic voice. Our main character is away on a boys holiday following the break up of his ten year relationship. Plenty of laughs, and a few not so unexpected twists and turns move this along at a brisk pace. Definitely one to take to the beach.
