(4)Carrie Goes Off the Map by Phillipa Ashley

Carrie Goes Off The Map

Publication Date: December 1, 2011
Pages: 384

Carrie is just weeks away from her wedding to longtime beau, Huw.  She is excited to finally be starting their "official" life together when he breaks the news that he does not want to marry her.  Of course she is devastated.  She spends the next few months in that pit of despair that all women experience when they are dumped.  Her dear friend decides that enough is enough and takes her out for a night on the town, where Carrie mistakenly overhears two girls talking about a wedding they will be attending.  Huw's wedding.

Carrie does what any scorned woman would do in that situation and crashes the wedding. After making a spectacle of herself and trashing the flowers at the wedding, Carrie retreats once again into herself. Until once again her friend pulls her out with the promise of a roadtrip in an old VW van.  They will travel Europe and have a carefree summer to forget, until the plans change and Carrie's travel partner turns out to be a very handsome, very single Doctor.  Will her plans for a carefree summer get thrown out the window or will she find a new leading character for her love story?

Carrie Goes Off the Map was the first novel that I have read by Phillipa Ashley.  It is a Chick Lit novel set in the UK, which are usually my absolute most favorite.  Carrie Goes Off the Map while a bit long in parts, was a decent read.  I thought the British slang was fun to read, but might be a bit confusing to some readers.  Overall Carrie Goes Off the Map was a fun escape from my mundane life, worth the read if you are looking for a Chick Lit book to read.


Why I Read...

I remember the carefree summer days when I used to ride my bike to the public library to pick out new books. I would go almost daily to find books to read. I read to learn. I read to explore the world. I read to escape. I read because not reading is not an option.
