There are a lot of things we are already excited about for next summer. The promise of long summer evenings, picnics, barbecues, road trips with friends, tans and pretty dresses… Oh, there’s definitely one more thing: the summer playlist. And we’ve already found the book we’re going to start with: The Road Trip by Beth O’Leary, The Sunday Times bestselling author of Colocation and The switch.
While on her way to Scotland for a friend’s wedding, Addie and her sister had an accident with none other than Addie’s ex Dylan, the man she has avoided since their devastating split. years ago. But here’s the thing: Dylan and his friend are also on their way to the same wedding, and now without a working car, they are forced to join Addie and her sister. With four hundred miles ahead of them and a car full of baggage and secrets, it isn’t long before Addie and Dylan find themselves faced with the messy story of their relationship.
It’s a warm, tender, romantic, and hilarious take on love, relationships, and breakups that will have you eagerly turning every page, especially if you’re already a fan of writers like Marian Keyes and Jojo Moyes. More than some kind of girlish audiobook? This one is read by the silky Eleanor Tomlinson (Love wedding rehearsal, Poldark) and dreamer Josh Dylan (Mamma Mia! Here we are again, Noughts + Crosses).
Whether you’re hitting the road yourself with your friends this summer or enjoying a vacation with a book in hand, The Road Trip is an adventure not to be missed.
