A wonderful kaleidoscopic story of family secrets, dilemmas and dynamics from the bestselling author of THE ALPHABET SISTERS, SPIN THE BOTTLE, UPSIDE DOWN INSIDE OUT and A TASTE FOR IT. Tour guide Harriet Turner knows all about journeys. She's arranged hundreds of them for the travel agency her family runs. But nothing has prepared her for the drama, the hilarity or the passion of the Willoughby tour...When her foster sister Lara vanishes suddenly, Harriet has to step in and lead a party of elderly tourists on a theme tour of Devon and Cornwall. The group are obsessive fans of Willoughby, an almost-forgotten English TV detective, and can't wait to meet Patrick Shawcross, the dashing actor who played him fifteen years ago. For Harriet, the tour turns into a different kind of journey - a journey of self-discovery. In the eccentric company of the Willoughby fans, she finds herself confronting questions about her family, her childhood, and her feelings for Patrick Shawcross. And there's another more puzzling question: where is Lara?
