The Road Trip by Beth O’Leary #BookReview #QuercusBooks #NetGalley #4.5*


Addie and her sister are about to embark on an epic road trip to a friend’s wedding in rural Scotland.

The playlist is all planned and the snacks are packed.

But, not long after setting off, a car slams into the back of theirs. The driver is none other than Addie’s ex, Dylan, who she’s avoided since their traumatic break-up two years earlier.

Dylan and his best mate are heading to the wedding too, and they’ve totalled their car, so Addie has no choice but to offer them a ride. The car is soon jam-packed full of luggage and secrets, and with four hundred miles ahead of them, Dylan and Addie can’t avoid confronting the very messy history of their relationship…

Will they make it to the wedding on time? And, more importantly, is this really the end of the road for Addie and Dylan?

Such a Fun Read!

Such a fun read! Definitely one which will leave you happier than before you read it.

Addie and Deb are heading to a friend’s wedding in Scotland; they have the playlist sorted, the snacks all packed and are going to have fun! Until, that is, another car rear-ends them which turns out to be driven by Addie’s ex, Dylan – the one man she really didn’t want to bump into again. As luck would have it, they are heading to the same wedding and while the sisters’ car is undamaged the other vehicle gets towed away leaving Dylan and Marcus with no transport and the girls’ with no option but to squeeze them all into their car. Only 400 miles to go . . .

Having previously read two novels by Beth O’Leary, I knew to expect a humorous read and this one fits the bill perfectly. There is such a lot going on and it’s only a matter of time before the elephant in the room (car?) – Addie & Dylan’s past – comes to the fore. That’s not all, of course; this author weaves together so many threads that there is never a dull moment. How I would love to have Deb’s car – it survives everything! With a wonderful cast of well-developed characters and a fun storyline, there are plenty of ups and downs along the way. Very entertaining and uplifting, this is one I definitely recommend. 4.5*.

My thanks to the publisher for my copy via NetGalley; this is – as always – my honest, original and unbiased review.
