The Staycation – Cressida McLaughlin ★★★★

Blurb; Travel agent, Hester Monday, has been keeping a secret …

Thanks to her fear of flying, she hasn’t been on a plane in years. Now Hester wants to make a good impression on her newest client, Jake Oakenfield, who was heroically injured saving an old lady, and is now laid up in a luxury hotel.

For Jake, unable to return to New York, binge watching Netflix just won’t do. He wants Hester to invent the ultimate escape and re-create her most magical holidays abroad from the confines of his hotel room.

As their perfect mini-breaks around the globe take on a life of their own, Hester wonders if her world of make-believe is all starting to feel just a little too real…

My Review; Another buddy read with Mel from Melanie’s read. She was on the tour for this I wasn’t but we love buddy reading so why not? I devoured 80% of this in one day. Easy, light reading. I thought I had figured it all out by chapter three… I was wrong so wrong. But what a brilliant read. Staycations are the new thing surely with covid around, storms and life in general. Hester is a professional at her job and knows what she’s doing but behind all that she’s hiding a huge secret which could ruin her career and relationship.

Can she face her fears? Reveal her hidden secret? Will she have her happy ever after with Jake even with the long distance? A story full of love, imaginary holidays and friendships. Loved all the characters in this story. Would highly recommend. A well deserved four stars for me. My first book by this author too, impressed.
