Summer is here and now is the perfect time to making the most of the beach reads on my TBR lists – even if I’m enjoying them from my garden rather than on a beach or poolside. Having made a good start on my NetGalley ARC (Advanced Reading Copy) list last month I have been once again focusing on this list. Loving some of the rom-com books that I’ve been lucky enough to download and read ahead of publication day.

I’ve also been focusing on my What I’m Kindle Reading Instagram account. Having fallen off the wagon when it came to taking photos and sharing my reads with my followers. This month, however, I have enjoyed getting back involved with the bookstagram community.

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Addie is driving up to Scotland with her sister Debs and Rodney (some random in the Facebook group who needed a lift) to her friend Cherry’s wedding. Not long after setting off do they have an accident with a car failing to stop behind and shunting the car. This would be bad enough if the car wasn’t been driven by her ex Dylan and his annoying best mate Marcus.

Running into Addie after almost two years apart was not suppose to happen like this – but here they are. All headed to the same wedding, Marcus somehow convincing the girls to give them a lift. Five adults crammed into a mini with luggage and a host of emotional baggage – how could this road trip possibly go wrong? Other than a breakdown, a trucker, dashing out for a wee, road closure and skeletons let out of the closet.

Flitting back and forth between now and the past, you gain an insight into how they met, the relationship between the characters and how they ended up where they are today.
