HEN PARTY As the survivor of a terrible childhood, Bern has always lived her stormy, flamboyant life as a fighter.
Now in her fifties, organising a hen party in the popular Spanish resort of Benidorm is easy, but booking a party also means she must deal with the consequences when one of her companions reveals a secret that has repercussions for everyone.
Bern finds herself in a Spanish police cell and is forced to confront her deeply buried feelings, her past and face up to the way she is living her life.
Available for Kindle or as a paperback. This is how the novel was viewed by one of the many 5 Star reviews on Amazon.

The title intrigued me when I bought this book. I imagined a group of 50+age ladies going on a big pub crawl through Benidorm and generally letting their hair down, but behaving 'almost' sensibly as by this age, we have all 'seen it, done it and bought the t shirt!' I could not have been more wrong.
Each page has twists and turns and we are told a lot about the main character's bad childhood experiences. Bern has now become an adult and organises some friends from her workplace to go to Benidorm and have a good time. Things go wrong from from the first page however and the book had me reading chapter by chapter wondering if a happy ending could be found. A great read from Hilary Coombes!
