Maddy and Leanne are in need of a miracle.
Maddy can’t bear to wash another pair of her husband’s Y-fronts and if he continues to drone on about golf she might just scream.
Leanne can’t stand living with her overbearing mother for a second longer and she’s one disapproving eye roll away from a nervous breakdown.
But their luck changes when they win the lottery.
Setting off from Dublin, Maddy and Leanne lease a red convertible, winding through Europe and heading for the sun-drenched French Riviera.
But the pair have their own reasons for their adventure. Maddy has never forgotten her summer romance of twenty years ago with a gorgeous Frenchman and Leanne plans to track down the father who abandoned her as a child.
Amongst glorious sunsets and buckets of bubbly, Leanne and Maddy are searching for answers after years of wondering ‘what if?’ But there might just be some surprises in store along the way…
A hilarious and heartwarming story about friendship, living life to the full and making the most of every moment. Fans of Fiona Gibson, Carole Matthews and Lucy Diamond will adore this uplifting, fun-filled read.
4 Road Trippin’ Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟
Ever wonder what you would do if you won the lottery? The one thing I would do for sure is hire someone to cook and clean for me… when best friends Maddy and Leanne win the lottery they decide to take a dream road trip across Europe… once again I found myself vacationing vicariously through the characters in my books… it really is much cheaper…and unless I win the lottery I probably will not be taking a trip around Europe any time soon!
Maddy and Leanne are both running from something and trying to find something…Maddy wants to get away from her tired marriage and find a man in Paris she had a fling with over 20 years ago… Maddy as a character was tough to sympathize with… if we were friends I would tell her this* quit complaining about your marriage, do something about it! Either leave or fix it, but having an affair with a man you haven’t seen in 20 years, not going to help anything! So please quit the whining!* clearly she needed a friend like me to straighten her out… leeAnne was trying to get away from a disapproving mother and find herself and her father…. I had much more sympathy for Leanne and I can’t believe she never lost it with her friend Maddy….
The road trip itself was a lot of fun! There were some over the top moments, but they made me laugh…. The descriptions of the cities throughout this book were so well painted, I felt as though I was there…. at the end of the book we find out there is a sequel, and I’m assuming some loose ends will be tied up…. also I cannot wait to see where they go next!
Recommend as a perfect summer getaway read… you too can vacation through Europe from the comfort of the couch or while sitting by your pool🚗
