With The Vacation, T.M. Logan has returned to the level of intrigue and engagement of his first novel, Lies!
The Vacation is about 4 women, longtime friends that have gotten their families together to celebrate their upcoming 40th birthdays with a luxury vacation. Each friend is in a very different place in her life. Kate suspects that her husband is having an affair with one of her friends, and her focus is ferreting out evidence of his philandering. Rowan is in the middle of a company merger. Izzy has started a new relationship. Jennifer has her own family crisis. However, they come together to celebrate their friendship and to encourage friendships between their families. Beneath the surface of their friendships, many little secrets have accumulated over the years. After a body is found, how will the women react? Will they band together in a united front? Or will their separate lives and secrets lead to fracture within the group and their families?
Much of the storyline of The Vacation is dedicated to Kate investigating her husband’s affair. As the summary of the book mentioned a death I kept waiting for the death to occur...and it took a bit. However, the story was engaging and I was on the edge of my seat with each twist and turn (fully expecting the body) before we reached that point of the story. I do wish that a bit more time had to spent on the unraveling of the story towards the end, but this didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the book. The Vacation has a heart pounding ending; I can’t wait to read T.M. Logan’s next thriller!
