Book Review | The Road Trip By Susanne O'Leary

Maddy and Leanne are in need of a miracle.

Maddy can't bear to wash another pair of her husband's Y-fronts and if he continues to drone on about golf she might just scream. 

Leanne can't stand living with her overbearing mother for a second longer and she's one disapproving eye roll away from a nervous breakdown. 

But their luck changes when they win the lottery.

Setting off from Dublin, Maddy and Leanne lease a red convertible, winding through Europe and heading for the sun-drenched French Riviera. 

But the pair have their own reasons for their adventure. Maddy has never forgotten her summer romance of twenty years ago with a gorgeous Frenchman and Leanne plans to track down the father who abandoned her as a child. 

Amongst glorious sunsets and buckets of bubbly, Leanne and Maddy are searching for answers after years of wondering 'what if?'. But there might just be some surprises in store along the way…

The Road Trip is a fun getaway from normality and takes in the sights of some amazing destinations. 
Imagine winning a very nice sum of 200,000 Euros and not have to tell anyone you have it ... the opportunities are endless! Personally my winnings would go straight on to my mortgage, but since we're living in the fictional world here I'm definitely thinking spa weekend!

Leading ladies Maddie and Leanne have their own agendas for keeping their winnings quiet, but a little secret of Leanne's soon reveals that their journey will be anything but a secret. 

Memory lane is always an intriguing journey, but Leanne and Maddie are determined to see it through. Leanne's father left home a long time ago and she's on course for finding him and discovering the truths of her childhood. Maddie on the other hand escapes from a failing marriage and reminisces about a summer romance with a handsome Frenchman, Ludo. 

Travelling cross country to high profile dinner parties and long travel sickness inducing ferry rides, the ladies follow the trail to the continent in search of answers and designer wardrobes.

I've really enjoyed reading The Road Trip as it feels like a fantasy that won't come true. I'd love to go travelling in a red sports car and be able to afford lush hotel rooms and chic designer labels but because I can't it's refreshing to experience the ride without spending the mortgage on it. 

I found The Road Trip easy reading and fun and would definitely recommend it to readers who like the work of Holly Martin, Daisy James and Carole Matthews.
