When Rachel Buckley announces that she is going to get married, her best friends Yaslyn and Carrie Ann can't wait to give her a proper send-off. No second-rate male stripper in a smoky bar for Rachel though. The girls choose instead to take a 'hen week' in Turkey, in the all-inclusive surroundings of luxurious Club Aegae.

It should be the perfect trip. But all three girls are bringing along more than their luggage. While Rachel looks forward to her wedding day with excitement, Carrie Ann wonders why the pain of her abusive marriage didn't end when the decree nisi arrived - and Yaslyn considers the possibility that she might never be ready to marry her boyfriend Euan.

Add unlimited free cocktails, rampant reps and a nasty dose of sunstroke and suddenly 'getting away from it all' comes dangerously close to 'going back to nothing'. Can three firm friendships survive just seven sunny days?
