Incredibly odd story, but very much like a British comedy - several guests at a beach house, a captive ex-girlfriend stowed away in an upper bedroom, a long-lost son suddenly appeared, a husband begging for the release of his wife, and the ensuing mayhem when the discovery of the whole mess is uncovered. I enjoyed this book far more than I thought I would.
