Evie is desperate for a holiday – a good one. Not only because she’s been working all hours as a receptionist for two high-powered plastic surgeons, but also because every holiday she’s ever been on has involved sunburn, arguments and projectile vomiting – sometimes all three at once. Why can’t she have a normal holiday like everyone else: peaceful beaches, glorious sunshine and (fingers crossed) some much-needed sex?

So when Evie’s employers invite her to attend a conference with them in the beautiful South of France, she can’t believe her luck. At last, the chance to hob nob with the rich and glamorous, to party under the stars, to live life as she’d always dreamt of it. It’s the holiday of a lifetime – but things don’t happen in quite the way Evie imagines . . .
