Blog Tour Stop with Review of The Staycation by Michele Gorman

Welcome to my Blog Tour Stop for The Staycation by Michele Gorman!

What They Say:
Two families. One cancelled flight. And a last minute house swap...
Things get desperate for strangers Harriet and Sophie when they become stranded with their families in Heathrow's Terminal 5. Each woman has her own reason for really really really needing the family oholiday they've anticipated for months. But Iceland's volcano has other plans for them. When their flights are cancelled, the families swap houses and discover that sometimes the best things in life happen close to home.
This ash cloud has a silver lining, even if no one can quite see it yet.
What I Say:

I always enjoy Michele's books. She writes great dialogue and her characters always come to life.

In The Staycation, we meet Harriet, James and their daughter Billie and Sophie, Dan and their children Katie and Oliver, when they end up stranded after a cancelled flight to Italy.

They decide to swap houses for the duration of their 2 week vacation, with one family going to stay on a goat farm in a quaint village and the other staying in the centre of London.

Over the course of the holiday, the families both learn a lot. About themselves and each other. They discover that appearances can be deceiving and things aren't always as they seem.

I really liked the way thw stories unfolded for both families. I particularly had an affinity for Sophie, as I have kind of been where she is. I was rooting for her to figure things out.

This is a great, easy, summery read that will entertain you and make you forget your troubles for a little while. 9/10

The Staycation is out now in ebook with Trapeze books. Thanks to the publishers for sending me an early e-copy in exchange for my honest review.

Welcome to my stop on the Blog Tour for  When Polly Met Olly by Zoe May! I have an exclusive extract for you today!

What They Say:
Polly and Olly were never supposed to meet…
Polly might spend her days searching for eligible matches for her elite list of clients at her New York dating agency, but her own love life is starting to go up in smoke. Even worse, she can’t stop thinking about the very person she’s meant to be setting her latest client up with… surely it can’t get any worse! But then Polly bumps into oh-so-handsome Olly, who heads up a rival agency, and realizes that perhaps all really is fair in love and dating war…
Chapter One
Surely, I’m not qualified to be a matchmaker?!
You’d think getting a job at a dating agency might actually require you to have found love, or at least be good at dating, but apparently not. I’ve been single for three years and I haven’t had a date for six months, yet I’m pretty sure I’m nailing this interview. ‘So, what kind of message would you send Eri…
