The Road Trip

by Darcy Rive |

There are lots of things that we’re already excited about for this coming summer. The promise of long summer evenings, picnics, barbecues, road trips with friends, tan lines, and pretty dresses…Oh, there’s definitely one more thing: the summer reading list. And we’ve already found the book that we’ll be kicking it off with: The Road Trip by Beth O’Leary, The Sunday Times bestselling author of The Flatshare and The Switch.

While driving to Scotland for a friend’s wedding, Addie and her sister get into an accident with none other than Addie’s ex, Dylan, the man she has avoided since their devastating break-up two years before. But here’s the thing: Dylan and his friend are also en route to the same wedding, and now with no working car of their own, they forced to join Addie and her sister. With four hundred miles ahead of them all and a car full of luggage and secrets, it doesn’t take long until Addie and Dylan find themselves facing the messy history of their relationship.

The Road Trip

It’s a warm, tender, romantic and hilarious look at love, relationships and break-ups that will have you greedily turning every page, especially if you’re already a fan of authors like Marian Keyes and Jojo Moyes. More of an audiobook kind of gal? This one is read by the silky Eleanor Tomlinson (Love Wedding Repeat, Poldark) and the dreamy Josh Dylan (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again, Noughts + Crosses).

Whether you’re hitting the road yourself with your friends this summer or enjoying a staycation with a book in hand, The Road Trip is one adventure you definitely don’t want to miss.
