About Our Holiday
Charlotte and Perry have owned their clifftop holiday home in Pine Ridge for years. They've worked hard for it - why shouldn't they enjoy it? Even if the locals can't afford to live in the village these days. Now city friends Amy and Linus have bought a second home nearby and when the two families descend, they plan lazy days at the beach and evenings sipping rose and watching the sun set from Charlotte's summerhouse veranda. 

But this summer is different. A group of locals - headed by the charismatic Robbie - will stop at nothing to make the second home owners pay for their holiday. By the end of their break, marriages will be torn apart, friendships shattered and crimes exposed. And one of them will have lost their life.
