As a published novelist, Lila Rose has been writing about fictional weddings all her life. But disaster strikes on her own big day when she hears her philandering fiancé, Daniel whispering sweet nothings to someone else. With her dream day shattered, all Lila wants to do is run and hide, so she decides to fly solo on her own honeymoon. When Daniel arrives in the resort with his new squeeze, Lila strikes up a ‘showmance’ with hot new movie star, Freddie Bianchi. Freddie is perfect for the part and Lila soon relaxes into her leading lady role. But as truth starts to merge with fiction, could real love be in the air?

Thoughts

As a way of clearing the palate from Christmas reads, I opted for a rom-com book set firmly in the sunshine. This one features our main character going on her honeymoon alone and getting tangled up with various romantic threads including a famous film star, and the inevitable reappearance of her almost-husband. This was easy to read, funny and friendly with good characters and interesting twists and turns along the way. I quite liked that Lila was a romance fiction author so there were elements of book within books and plot within plots. And it was a happy ending, so hooray for the final book of the year.
