A Holiday to Remember by Susanne O’Leary @susl @bookouture #BookReview #PubDay

Happy Publication Day to this delightful book!
Many thanks to Kim for my invitation and to Susanne O’Leary for this wonderful vacation in a book!🏝

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. 

My Thoughts

4 Sailing Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Another wonderful vacation in a book… this is the continuation of Maddy and Leanne’s travels in “The Road Trip“… after the best friends win the lottery they take the road trip of a lifetime across Europe… this book finds them in Italy and Croatia… I had no idea Croatia was so beautiful, the dalmatian islands sound absolutely stunning… this book really brought the beauty of this part of the world to life I could see, feel, smell, and taste the beautiful turquoise waters! This really is the second half of Maddy and Leanne’s story so I would strongly advise you read the first book 1st…

Maddy really kind of annoyed me in the first book so I was really delighted that this book really focused on Leanne… Leeanne really needed this trip, she really needed to get away from her overbearing mother… I really loved all the secondary characters in this book they were all such eclectic, delightful, and quirky characters… seriously if I ever make it to Europe I am going to have the expectation of meeting all kinds of interesting people on my travels!

A fun book full of friendship, love, intrigue, and a dash of romance… I wouldn’t say this book was laugh out loud funny but it sure did put a big smile on my face… and I absolutely love the message of the book… to live each and every day to its absolute fullest never to settle for second-best….

This book is the perfect summer getaway, allowing you to vacation from the comfort of your couch or the convenience of your lounger…. absolutely recommend if you love books with beautiful settings, strong friendships, and quirky characters….
