I am very pleased to be participating in the blog tour for A Holiday to Remember by Suzanne O'Leary.
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.
About the author:
Susanne O'Leary is the bestselling author of fifteen novels, mainly in the romantic fiction genre. She has also written three crime novels and two in the historical fiction genre. She has been the wife of a diplomat (still is), a fitness teacher and a translator. She now writes full-time from either of two locations, a ramshackle house in County Tipperary, Ireland or a little cottage overlooking the Atlantic in Dingle, County Kerry. When she is not scaling the mountains of said counties (including MacGillycuddy's Reeks, featured in Full Irish), or keeping fit in the local gym, she keeps writing, producing a book every six months.

Leanne and Maddy are back in this second book in this series about their travels as they continue on in their travels. The two teachers have won a special lottery and are enjoying a remarkable road trip. In this story they are expanding this road trip and are now going on a boat trip with new friends. Along for the ride is their cute little dog Bridget.
This is a sweet story where, in the first book, The Road Trip, Maddy found a love interest, and now it is Leanne's turn, although for a while she thought she might be disappointed. This was a quick read, with a light air of mystery and drama. I will say that this wasn't the side-splitting read that I expected, but it was quite enjoyable nonetheless, especially with all of the sight-seeing I was able to do from my couch. This was a delightfully engaging series that I was pleased to read.
Many thanks to Bookouture and to NetGalley for this ARC for review in exchange for my honest opinion.
