The Mercury Travel Club Book Tour



He took her to dinner: that was annoying.

He slept with her: that was hurtful.

He bought new underwear to impress her: quite frankly astounding.

He left me to bloody wash his FILTHY WHORING PANTS: INFURIATING!

After twenty-four years and eleven months of marriage, Angie Shepherd is divorced, dejected and facing a future of cardigans and cats. Best friend Patty is having none of it, and launches Angie into a variety of crazy schemes in search of her lost mojo.

But it s just not enough; what she really dreams of is beating her ex and becoming Entrepreneur of the Year. Channelling her inner Richard Branson, Angie invests her divorce settlement into The Mercury Travel Club, a travel agency with a twist. But as the club gets going, things don't go according to plan, and in this digital age, a little chaos brings the recognition Angie's been looking for.

Witty, entertaining and laugh-out- loud funny, this feel-good novel shows that it's never too late for a second chance.

Review

I've said it before and I'm going to say it again. I love being a book blogger! Being invited to take part in book tours is a wonderful opportunity, especially you get to discover author's you haven't read before and stories which make you laugh over and over.

The Mercury Travel Club is definitely in a category that I would also put Love Actually and Bridget Jones into. A feel good story that is heart warming and fantastically funny!

The plot of The Mercury Travel Club follows Angie as she invests her divorce settlement into a new venture. Now ... life would be boring if everything ran smoothly so you guessed it. There's some fab hiccups along the way. My lips are sealed so I don't reveal any spoilers but there are some good little giggles to discover in this book. 

I love how easy this book is to read. Meaning that having a 5 month old baby at your feet won't majorly disrupt your following of the story. Easy to read and follow, the characters are realistic and fun to meet, though some of them may need a bolt or two screwing back in. 

The Mercury Travel Club has been a delight to read and I'm really hoping there'll be more from the involved characters soon.
