Review and Giveaway: Chasing the Sun - Katy Colins

Georgia Green is on the conveyor belt to happiness.
Live-in boyfriend, perfect career and great friends, it seems like Georgia is only a Tiffany box away from her happily ever after. But when she arrives in Australia for her best friend’s wedding and is faced with the bridezilla from hell, she starts to realise that she might not want the cookie-cutter ending she thought.

What was meant to be a trip full of sunny days at the beach and wedding planning over cocktails, has turned into another problem for her to fix – just like the ones she’d left behind. With hardly any time for her boyfriend, let alone herself, it feels like there is just too much to juggle. It might be time for Georgia to step off the conveyor belt to find the balance in life and see if she really can have it all…

My thoughts:
The perfect beach read, if only it had not been grey, cold and rainy here. But hey, then the book is a perfect rainy day curled up with a book and warm cup of tea kind of book.

Gerogia has a great boyfriend, a fun job and her own company. Life is good. And yes later I saw that she has had adventures in earlier books and met her boyfriend there. But this works absolutely perfect as a stand alone and is meant to work like that.

This time her journey takes her to Australia. A wild hen night before her friend's wedding. Watching her friend become bridezilla. Seeing what Australia has to offer and yes a few surprises too. All in all an enjoyable ride.

Georgia was fun to read about and it did make me curious about those other books, where she finds herself, finds her man and I guess starts her company?

Conclusion:
The book is light, fun and easy to breeze through. Perfect for...duh, the beach :D

After Katy’s wedding was called off in 2010, she made the life-changing decision to travel solo around South East Asia, leaving behind her successful career and selling everything that wouldn’t fit into a backpack. As she travelled, Katy finally put her adventures and thoughts into words and secured a six book deal with Harper Collins.

Chasing the Sun is Katy’s fourth novel featuring the inimitable Georgia Green, and the perfect beach read for this summer.

  2. Actually we're planning a week's stay out on Cape Cod with a stop on the way home in Salem Ma. I want to see the witch museum and my wife wants to see the house of seven gables.
