Katy Colins is a qualified journalist with articles published in Company Magazine and The Daily Star she crossed sides to work in PR before selling all she owned to backpack solo around South East Asia and finally put her thoughts into words, writing as she travelled. When she is not writing about romance, travel and adventure, she loves travelling, catching up with family and friends.
The second in the Lonely Hearts Travel Club series, featuring Georgia Green as she muddles her way through life and struggles to run her small and exclusive travel agents. Author Katy Colins gained a book deal after success with her travel blog ‘Not Wed or Dead’, she started this series with ‘Destination Thailand’, although I read ‘Destination India’ as a standalone novel quite easily. Georgia could charitably be described as a workaholic, and less charitably as a control freak, when a bad review threatens the reputation of the travel agents Georgia decides to go straight to the root of the problem in India. This is a lively spirited novel and while Georgia may at times be rather frustrating, I felt myself warming to her as she waded through a veritable catalogue of disasters. Entertaining and fun, this is a series that could travel around the world.
When you feel invisible, friendship can offer a ray of hope Sometimes it's the things we don't say that we need others to hear the loudest . . . Izzy has always taken everything in her stride but motherhood is proving more difficult than she thought. She keeps telling herself it's just a phase but the dark clouds are starting to appear. Neighbour and widower Arthur might be in the winter of his life but he's not ready to be packed off to a care home. He's determined to do things his way. When Izzy hears about Arthur's big move, she offers to help. But Arthur isn't telling her the whole story. It takes courage to admit you need a friend and when you feel invisible, all you need is a ray of hope. After all, what if the best is yet to come? An emotional but ultimately feel-good novel about love and friendship for fans of Richard Roper's Something to Live For and Lia Louis's Dear Emmie Blue.
