About The Book

Meet luxury travel agent Hester Monday. When Hester’s newest client, handsome Jake Oakenfield, is injured in a heroic accident, he has an unusual request.
For Jake, laid up in a luxury hotel room and unable to return to New York, binge watching Netflix just won’t do. He wants Hester to invent the ultimate escape and re-create her most magical holidays abroad from the confines of his hotel room.
The only problem? Thanks to her fear of flying, Hester hasn’t been on a plane in years.
They travel together on a series of virtual mini-breaks around the globe, from Australia to New York and the Amalfi coast, until Hester’s world of make-believe starts to feel just a little too real.
Will the truth ruin her perfect holiday romance?


My Thoughts

I don’t think there’s anything better than traveling around the world while sitting on a sofa. Yes, you can say that it is much better being in the country than only seeing some images and tasting the food while someone is telling their anecdotes, but when you’ve been involved in a car accident and you are not allowed to travel, this has to be the best way to discover new countries, don’t you think?
This is the story of Hester Monday, a travel agent, one of the best in her job, she can make the best imaginary trips in your mind, the only problem is that she has never left the UK. She is scared of flying!
For now, her secret has been well kept, only her family and best friends know about her fear of flying. But her boss is starting to pressure her to try some of the places and when she is assigned to work for Jake Oakenfield, she wants to make a good impression. But is it fair to start a relationship with a lie? Should she tell him the truth before it’s too late? You’ll have to read the story if you want to know the answers!
In a moment where traveling is not easy, this book transported me around the world, making me smile all the time and wonder when I can take the next plane.
This is a story to make you dream, smile and have a great time while you disconnect from your stressful days.
