about the book - gone viking

Frazzled mum Alice Ray likes to think she’s on top everything. But after spectacularly embarrassing herself at work, she finally gives in to her sister’s pleas to take a much needed break.  But this is not the luxury spa holiday Alice hoped for – instead, she finds herself in Denmark, in the middle of nowhere, on a ‘How to be a Viking’ getaway.  Can the two sisters finally learn to get along or will learning to embrace their inner warrior just make them better at fighting?  Two sisters. One Scandi holiday they’ll never forget…
