#BookReview Flying Solo by Zoe May


A laugh-out-loud romantic comedy about love, dreams and self-discovery by bestselling author, Zoe May.

Rachel Watson has it all worked out. By 30, she’s ticked off most of the goals on her Life List. She’s a home owner, a partner at her law firm, she has a gorgeous boyfriend, lots of hobbies and loads of good friends. The only thing that’s missing is a ring on her finger.

According to her Life List, Rachel should be getting hitched around now, so when her boyfriend, Paul, plans a romantic date, Rachel’s pretty confident he’s going to propose. Except Paul has other ideas. He’s jetting off to India to find himself.

Distraught, Rachel doesn’t know what to do. Not one to easily admit defeat, she embarks on a mission to win him back.

Flying solo to India is definitely not part of Rachel’s plans, but could her trip teach her unexpected lessons about love, life and herself? Could she realise that perhaps her Life List wasn’t exactly what she wanted, after all?

The Review: I have previously reviewed When Polly Met Olly (review here) and Perfect Match (review here) and was thrilled when I heard this was coming out.

From the start of the book I was all in, there’s nothing better than an expected proposal and this was done amazingly, I was with Rachel as she prepped herself for the big night (or two) and fell in step with the nice touches of humour, easily. Rachel’s back story was so sad and actually I wished I’d got it much earlier, as I think I connected with Rachel even more when I heard all she’d gone through. I mispredicted early on and loved that I did, as the author’s way was so much better than what I expected to happen!

I loved Rachel trying to adapt to life in India, although you experience India more as a compound than actual indian life if you know what I mean and I enjoyed that it was more about the way people lived in places that thrived on travellers finding themselves. The characters were great, the comedy brilliant, I get from the end that there’s possibly a sequel, but even with that the ending was very sudden but all in all such an enjoyable read and one that I flew through. Very much recommended.
