As convincing your somewhat reluctant mother that it is a wonderful idea to go on a cruise trip around Greece and then execute your poorly hidden master plan – finding a partner to your mother and get yourself some well-deserved and highly needed rest from your own everyday life with husband, kids and work. Luxury, Mediterranean, glamour – what could possibly go wrong?

“Emmy Abrahamson is genuinly funny.”
TV4, Nyhetsmorgon / SWE

“A perfect read in the hammock.”
Ystads Allehanda / SWE

“I love Abrahamson’s books!”
M-Tidning / SWE

“Abrahamson is a skilled observer with a sense for detail that creates an accurate description. You laugh out loud at some scenes on the boat, are secondarily ashamed on bus trips to ‘genuine’ places and engulfed by alcoholic marital quarrels. But despite the entertainment, it is the not entirely uncomplicated relationship between mother and daughter that is the treasure.”
Göteborgs-Posten / SWE

“Once again Emmy Abrahamson has written a very funny book.”
