Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Lovely author of romantic romps gives us a slice of her own romantic escapades. It started as a bit of a laugh and then became a challenge to visit all the sexy sounding towns in America looking for love … well … men, perhaps. I loved it, a unique travel book with lots of laughs, sticky situations and interesting people, which is highly entertaining.

If you like Belinda Jones you might also like to read books by Sarah Jackman, Lisa Jewell and Carmen Reid.

Synopsis

On the Road to Mr. Right by Belinda Jones

'If adventures do not befall a young lady in her own village, she must seek them abroad' Jane Austen

Belinda Jones loves America. Her best friend, Emily O'Neill, loves men. So what better way to celebrate their friendship than to combine their two greatest passions in an astonishing road trip with one aim in mind: to embrace American culture - and any willing men they find along the way. And so, Belinda and Emily set off to pursue their dreams in the most romantic-sounding locations they could find: from Kissimmee (Florida) to Eden (Texas), from Cazenovia (New York) to Intercourse (Pennsylvania), they were women on a mission. The Thelma and Louise of Love. They made front-page headlines, flirted their way out of a night in a prison cell with Judge Butch, they even chatted up a Jehovah's Witness, all in the name of love. But did they find the American Dream Guy?

Reviews

‘"This is definitely worth cramming in your suitcase" Cosmopolitan

"Riotously funny...an "un-put-down-able" book...You'll be reaching for the holiday brochures in no time" Real

"Mixing fast-paced humour and some great gags but undercut with genuinely moving emotion, this is a cut above most romantic comedies. A gem" Woman's Own

"As essential as your SPF 15" New Woman

"A wise and witty read about the secret desires deep within us" Marie Claire

Their sending me my first book to review 18 months ago re-awakened my fondness for reading, since then I have purchased some real gems.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
