Queen of the Nile

by Tim Fountain

Debbie is 40 and single, she's behind on her Christmas hamper money and has served one too many sausages to her customers in Burger Off in Wakefield. When her best friend – happily married gym bunny Jan – gives her the chance to escape, she grabs it with both hands. A week in a five star hotel on the banks of the river Nile seems like the perfect way to escape her Full English life.

As Debbie suns herself by the pool overlooking The Valley of The Queens she encounters ex-pat restaurateur and confirmed bachelor Lesley, who quickly introduces her to the real Luxor. 

Enter Mahmoud – a sexy young boat captain who might be just a little too young for her but he sure puts an Arab Spring in her step.   

But is he the man of Debbie’s dreams?

Or is he simply taking her up the Nile? 

Revolution may be in the air but the British are coming!
