as we read the comedy

Welcome to Paradise

by Julie Marino

Evelyn thinks this may be her last solo trip to her Caribbean beach house before encroaching old age and interfering children dictate otherwise. Global vagabond Rory is just looking for a warm, congenial pit stop. Taking up Evelyn’s offer of a place to stay a night, maybe two, Rory finds himself feeling more and more at home at Evelyn’s place. She meanwhile is unexpectedly delighted to have an agreeable, helpful young companion. That is, until Evelyn’s suspicious and massively overprotective son, Greg, his stoic, long-suffering wife, Trish, and their mischievous teenage daughter Sydney show up to visit!
