When Clint and Claire Virgin set off for a week in Costa del Sol, they have no idea that their very first holiday abroad will result in mayhem, menace and mortification for them both.
A spate of robberies in the local hotels soon escalates into violence and all Claire’s attempts to play sleuth end up in disaster.
Clint, with his love of pasties and all things Cornish, is no help – his infatuation with the glamorous Amber Winnard plus Claire’s own obsession with Harry, the handsome hotel manager lead them from one catastrophe to another. With bag-snatching, muggings and the attempted murder of a new friend, Claire soon finds herself in the thick of things.
But – Will Clint’s visit to the Massage Parlour leave him with more than an empty wallet?
How will Roy and the Lovely Edie put the electricity back into their marriage?
And will Tony the Café owner ever decide to wash his hands?
These and many more questions are answered in a tongue-in-cheek tale of one woman’s desire to shine and one man’s attempts to survive it.

I live in Bilston, in the West Midlands UK. I’m married, retired and spend my days writing and pretending to clean. My husband – who’s a plumber – has had to endure lots of ribbing because people automatically assume that the character of Clint is based on him. You’d think he would be grateful for my giving him his five minutes of fame but the only thanks I got were: ‘Thanks for making me an object of ridicule’. That said, he is ‘helping’ me with the sequel to Virgins Abroad by offering suggestions about how Clint should solve the crimes and save the day – I don’t think so…..
