A side-splittingly funny summer read about two best friends who decide to take a chance and travel the world, finding themselves – and finding love – along the way!
Until a few weeks ago, Leanne was a thirty-something who lived with her mother. And yes, she still slept under her Barbie bedspread.
Until recently, Maddy was married to a man whose golf club got more action than she did.
But not anymore.
Leanne and Maddy (and their miniature poodle Bridget) have packed their suitcases and bid goodbye to their dreary lives for the summer. After winding along Italy’s sun-dappled Adriatic Coast in a shiny red convertible, sailing around Croatia’s gorgeous Dalmatian Islands awaits them.
Days splashing around in sparkling turquoise waters and wine-fuelled nights under the stars are every girl’s dream. But with a devilishly handsome Italian on board, old flames to get over and holiday flings to contend with, there’s plenty of drama ahoy. One thing’s for certain, Leanne and Maddy’s trip promises to be a holiday to remember…
A joyful, laugh-out-loud and feel-good story that will make you want to pack your bags, set off on an adventure and live life to the max. Fans of Fiona Gibson, Lucy Diamond and Carole Matthews will love this hilarious and heartwarming read.
A Holiday To Remember features Leanne and Maddy who we are introduced to in the authors previous book, The Road Trip. I haven’t actually read The Road Trip and whilst this read fairly well as a stand alone, I would probably recommend reading in order.
The story has so many things that appealed to me. Friendship, travel, romance and I loved the blog aspect of the story line having a book blog myself. What a better way to see the world than to go with your best friend. You know the saying that friends know all your best stories but a best friend has lived them with you? Well this is so true when it comes to this story.
The places that Leanne and Maddy get to go I sadly haven’t had the opportunity to visit myself but it is very much brought to life in this book. The colours, sounds and smells, just leapt from the page into my mind, transporting me there. It felt like I was there alongside the characters sharing the experience with them.
A Holiday To Remember really is a feel good read which will make you pull up your big girl pants, grab your bestie and go and have some fun. The ideal book to accompany you on your holiday or if you need a pick me up as it certainly is a fun and entertaining read.
My thanks to Bookouture and NetGalley for an advanced readers copy of this book. All opinions are my own and not biased in anyway.
