Today it is my pleasure to bring you my review of Flying Solo by Zoe May as part of her fabulous blog tour!
Rachel is adamant that today is the day. Today is the day that she will be able to tick off a rather significant goal on her Life List. She is getting engaged! After bumping into her boyfriend of 5 years outside a jewellery store, she just knows. Admittedly she had hoped to have got engaged two years ago, but she is feeling confident now that her Life List is back on track. Until her engagement doesn’t happen. In fact, it doesn’t only not happen but Paul leaves her, jetting off to India to find himself.
Rachel finds herself enroute to the ashram in India to win back her man. Her Life List is off track, but she is determined to bring it back in line. What she doesn’t expect though is to discover that maybe her Life List isn’t everything she’s ever wanted. Maybe there’s more to life than doing what is expected of you.
I really enjoyed this novel. Rachel is such a great character, and I’m sure many of us can see elements of ourselves in her. She gets so caught up in doing what she thinks she should be doing with her life, that she doesn’t contemplate what she might actually want from life. The journey she takes, both physically and emotionally is an important one and I really enjoy following her. This a great, light read and it was nice to read something that whilst it started off being all about getting her man, it didn’t end that way. I am more than happy to recommend this novel!
Thank you to Zoe May and Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me to be a part of this blog tour, and for providing me with a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.
Zoe May is an author of romantic comedies. Zoe has dreamt of being a novelist since she was a teenager. She worked in journalism and copywriting in London before writing her debut novel, Perfect Match. Having experienced the London dating scene first hand, Zoe could not resist writing a novel about dating, since it seems to supply endless amounts of weird and wonderful material!
Perfect Match was one of Apple’s top-selling books of 2018. It was also shortlisted for the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s Joan Hessayon Award, with judges describing it as ‘a laugh out loud look at love and self-discovery – fresh and very funny’.
As well as writing, Zoe enjoys walking her dog, painting and, of course, reading! She adores animals and if she’s not taking a photo of a vegan meal, she’s probably tweeting about the dairy industry. She is half Greek and half Irish and can make a mean baklava. Zoe has a thing for horror films, India, swimming, hip hop and Radiohead. She has an encyclopaedic knowledge of handbags having spent several years working in fashion copywriting and could probably win Mastermind if this was her specialist subject!
