Further details

Jane Roberts' career in journalism has stalled. Wanting a high-profile, hard-hitting crime column in which she revives and then solves long-since given-up-on cold cases, all she gets offered is the chance to review a spa in the Himalayas for a minor fitness magazine.

Lucy is delighted and desperate to come along in order to lose weight for her forthcoming school reunion. Amelia is in too, as she is desperate to see a real-life tiger in the wild. So a reluctant Jane and her excited companions head for India and find themselves in a yoga class.
