==Background:== I have always been a fan of Mike Gayle's novels, so when on a web site I realised I had enough points to get this novel free I jumped at the chance. The only problem was it took nearly four weeks to arrive and I had nearly given up every receiving it. And because it was a gift I had no idea what the book would be like I simply selected it on this author reputation. ==About the author:== Mike Gayle is a British author who has been writing novels since 1998.

All of Mike Gayle's books are written in this way, including the latest one I have read - Wish You Were Here. The story is told by Charlie who is thirty five and single having recently separated from his long term girlfriend. His mate Andy has the idea that a holiday is just what Charlie needs to cheer him up. However, unbeknownst to Charlie he books an 18- 30 holiday in the Crete resort of Malia. Now both Charlie and ...
