One wedding. One curse? Disaster ever after…
Alex and Casey are celebrating their fairytale wedding on a yacht moored off San Tropez, in the company of their friends and family. They have no inkling of the traumatic weeks ahead. As they toast each other their attention and focus is drawn to a display in the sky. There’s a strange rumbling noise from the sea, like thunder, as they make the toast, eyes skyward, but only Casey and Alex seem to notice. Something very mysterious has happened and it seems to have an adverse effect on Alex and Casey’s love life. Actually they don’t, or rather can’t, continue that part of their relationship. Theirs is rapidly turning into a completely no sex marriage. They can’t understand what has happened because both of them desperately want to continue their previously healthy sex life. Then someone mentions a ‘seven years bad sex curse’ superstition. Surely not?
Alex shook his head. ’You’re all nuts. Casey, you can’t be taking this seriously? So we didn’t look at each other, but that hardly means we’re cursed!’
‘But…’ Casey felt herself turning pale. ‘Remember I asked whether you felt the earth quake? That was right at that moment.’
‘Classic presentation,’ Lisa squealed. ‘Growling earth noises always accompany a curse being activated!’
Although the idea of a curse is quite bizarre, Casey and Alex’s problem persists on their return to home life. Despite desperately trying any and all ways, some making me wince, some unknowingly dangerous and others sweet and considerate, none of their efforts alleviate the problem. As each attempt fails and nothing seems to help, they become ever more distressed and disheartened as their pre marital happiness is whittled away bit by bit.
Nicky Wells has turned what is actually a serious and sensitive subject matter into a light-hearted, humorous and very imaginative story. Having said that, emotions do run deep and I found myself rooting for Casey and Alex, who are having a really rough time which impacts on their lives and their marriage. They are fun characters though, and the supporting cast are likeable too, and do their best to help the couple get back on track. I particularly enjoyed James and Rodge.
A neat concept, taking the seven years of bad luck superstition a step further.
