What if you didn’t want to fake it any more?
When Sarah, a teacher from Cornwall, and Matt, a businessman from Nashville, meet on a European coach tour, they soon find themselves in a relationship …
Except it’s a fake relationship. Because Matt is too busy for romance, and Sarah is only trying to make her cheating ex-husband jealous … isn’t she?
As Matt and Sarah complete their tour of Europe, they do all the things real couples are supposed to do – from visiting fairy-tale castles in Germany to recreating the scene from Romeo and Juliet in Verona. And, of course, for every picturesque destination there’s a loved-up selfie and Facebook post to match.
But as their holiday comes to an end, Sarah and Matt realise that they’re not happy with their pretend relationship. They want the real thing.
Gentle fun romance
Sarah and Matt accompany their mothers on a whirlwind, 7 countries in 10 day coach tour. They soon discover that they have more than their age in common. While they fake a romance, their mutual attractions blossoms into something more substantial as they visit the famous landmarks of Europe. So what if they live on different sides of the world?
This is a fun, gentle, clean romance between two people who are made for each other. Although the actual holiday sounded exhausting to me, the interesting locations kept my interest. The pace was brisk and always moving forward and at each location they grew closer. It was great when their witty dialogue and romantic moments played out in places I had actually visited myself. The best line was from Matt which went something like, ‘its like have a love affair in a fish bowl’ I knew exactly what he meant, but you will have to read the book to find out for yourself.
