Holiday For Lovers is the carefree story of the Dean family - Father, Mother and twenty-year-old daughter, Betsy - from Minneapolis, who embark on their first European holiday, to soak up some old world charm and visit with a twenty-three-year-old daughter, Meg, who's been studying music abroad for three years

The situation becomes hysterical when they arrive in Paris, and the quick tempered Mr Dean finds he doesn't speak enough French to make the elevator man understand he wants to get to the lobby

His wife discovers the fabulous fashions; Betsy encounters a handsome American painter - and love; and the plot complicates when beautiful Meg arrives with a charming, suave, French maestro who, Father is certain, has taken romantic advantage of his daughter

We follow the family to Spain, where Mr Dean sees his first bullfight and is booed out of the stadium

We travel with them to Rome, where Mr Dean learns to understand Europe - and his own family!

The romance of the two girls in the atmosphere of Latin Europe supplies the chief involvement of the comedy

"Charming and funny" ~ NY Journal-American

"Ronald Alexander has done it again, as in Time Out For Ginger he has come up with a good, clean family comedy that keeps even sophisticated audiences amused" ~ Catholic News
