IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE PERFECT HOLIDAY: lazy days with good friends, spent in a pretty cottage by the sea. But when one family cancels, Kath invites Rob, her hunky younger brother, and his current love instead. Then Kath's father, Giles, whose frosty demeanour and broken arm are hardly harbingers of fun, must come too. All Kath wants is the chance to have uninterrupted sex with her husband. All Rob wants is to find out if he still has a chance with the woman he loves. All Giles wants is to become closer with his daughter, while eight-year-old Anna just wants to be a mermaid. At the heart of it all is Miranda -- beautiful, bold and baffling Miranda -- who wants nothing more than to survive the week without anyone discovering her little secret, a secret that threatens to turn their safe, ordered lives upside down.

With her trademark sparkling dialogue, flesh-and-blood characters and witty take on family life and love, Claire Calman has another winner with Cross My Heart and Hope to Die. Recently published in the UK to fantastic reviews, this latest novel will be welcomed by Calman's growing legions of Canadian fans.
