A joyously romantic, feel-good summer read. Eva Blue is about to go on a trip of a lifetime, but one adventure she didn't count on was falling in love...
Eva is quite content with her life in London. In her job as a cover designer, she works at home, and often in her cosy pyjamas. She's happy to stay in her safe little world and not explore much outside of it.
She is the opposite of her mum, a free spirit who craved finding adventure and thrills in all corners of the world. But on the day her mum's will is finalised, Eva finds a list of all the dreams her mum wanted to achieve in her life. Things she never did because she fell pregnant with Eva.
Eva decides these dreams will not go unfulfilled - she is going to be brave and complete them for her mum. As Eva has no experience travelling the world, she hires a guide to go with her on this holiday.
Gorgeous but rude Thor Anderson is not the person she would choose to accompany her on this journey, but somehow she gets stuck with him. As they discover the world together Eva starts to think he might not be as bad as she first thought. She is swept away by Thor's kindness and mischievous sense of humour. But will it be a simple holiday romance or could this wonderful adventure lead to so much more?
The stunning new story from the bestselling author of The Cottage on Sunshine Beach. Discover an unforgettable romance this summer.
The Summer of Chasing Dreams was a bundle of joy from start to finish. We follow sensible normal Eva who would normally put her money into savings account for a rainy day rather than spend it on the here and now.
But while clearing out her mum’s house she finds a treasure chest with all of her mum’s dreams. And suddenly she wants to travel the world and fulfil her mum’s dreams. And maybe a few of her own along the way.
It had a very similar feel to One Hundred Proposals. The fantastic locations, the romantic gestures, the swoonsome moments. But somehow 100 times better.
Eva and Thor were a fab couple and I was rooting for them from the very first moment they met. I just wanted to hold a big sign and scream go for it! And that moment when everything fell into place was delicious.
The Summer of Chasing Dreams is the perfect feel good read, filled with some incredible romantic moments, and some fantastic locations too boot. You’ll be getting travel happy before you know it.
