Join Georgia Green for a romantic trip into the sunset…
Oh, I am so happy to be part of the blog tour I am a part of today, namely Katy Colins' new release 'Destination: Chile', the third part of her successful 'The Lonely Hearts Travel Club' series! I've had the pleasure of reading and reviewing the two previous parts, 'Destination: Thailand' (click here to read my review) and 'Destination: India' (click here to read my review) and I absolutely loved both books. Katy Colins is a wonderful author and I was incredibly excited to had been given an early review copy of her latest story. Besides my review I also have an exclusive guest post from Katy herself to share with all of you today, so be sure to scroll down to read it all and to visit some of the other stops on the tour if you're looking for some more great content!
Georgia is in a good place; she's moved in with her hunky boyfriend Ben and their business, travel agency 'The Lonely Hearts Travel Club', is only growing. Question is: where will Georgia's next trip go to? If it's up to Georgia, she's thinking somewhere romantic, the perfect place for a proposal... But when she and Ben are unexpectedly invited to take part in a TV show that includes a trip to Chile, all expenses paid, they can't possibly say no. Together with four other couples that work in the travel business they travel to Chile to start their journey, which also includes a competition to win a big cash price. And just like previous times, Georgia's in for quite a trip...
Every once in a while I'm lucky enough to find a chick lit book series I just can't get enough of. This was the case with Lindsey Kelk's 'I Heart...' series, the 'Shopaholic' books, and now also with Katy Colins' 'The Lonely Hearts Travel Club' series. 'Destination: Chile' is the third part of the series, but while sequels to a great novel can sometimes be a bit disappointing, Katy just keeps on hitting the nail on the head with her stories. Georgia is a great heroine; I've liked her and rooted for her from the start and in each book she finds herself facing a new challenge, with different things going on in her life, and I just really love the fact that we, as readers, are invited to join her and look over her shoulder, every step of the way.
I have to admit I was curious to see whether Katy Colins would manage to come up with something new in this third part and she definitely did. An unexpected trip to Chile for a TV show that has a competition element to it... I don't want to say too much, but there is definitely a lot going on in this novel with several interesting aspects to the storyline to keep you wanting to turn the pages. I don't really know what else to say then to definitely pick up this series if you're a chick lit fan; it really is a brilliant read. 'Destination: Chile' is another fun, well-written and incredibly enjoyable read by Katy Colins. I think I've personally come to the stage where I'll just pick up anything with her name on it, because it quite simply has to be a great read...!
Thanks to the publisher for providing me with a review copy in exchange for an honest review.
Guest Post by Katy Colins!
I'm both honoured and excited to once again welcome Katy Colins to the blog today to celebrate the release of her latest novel, 'The Lonely Hearts Travel Club - Destination: Chile'! Below you can find a special guest post from Katy herself in which she tells us a bit more about how her travels in Chile inspired her latest book.
Chile is not the most common location to set a book but I love to give my readers a taste of a destination in my novels to hopefully inspire wanderlust! I spent my time in Chile going from one extreme to the other – weather wise. From the arid desert north of the country down to the wet and windy south, it is a country that has it all. Setting is very important to me as I think it comes with its own challenges when you’re travelling and certainly puts you out of your comfort zone. Georgia soon realises that being half the way around the world doesn’t mean you can leave your problems at home, something I think a lot of travellers expect to happen. When you are miles from everything you know it can magnify what is going on in your life, sometimes in both a positive and negative way. This is the beauty of travel, you can be humbled and inspired by the things around you promising to return with a new outlook on everything. It is the reason I want to keep exploring the world and something that Georgia also shares, except she has a demanding business to run and a lot of balls in the air!
I also loved the warmth I received from the Chilean people, they were some of the friendliest I met when I backpacked around South America. From the exotic food to the stunning architecture it is a country that has inspired poets, artists and writers for years.
I hope that readers will soon be adding Chile to their travel wish-list after reading Destination Chile. I’m already aching to go back!
