Synopsis

Around the World in 80 Dates by Jennifer Cox

They say there's someone for everyone. But what if 'The One' lives in Winnipeg rather than Wimbledon? Or Port Stanley instead of Livingstone? Or, even in Eden...New South Wales? How far would you go to find them? Paris, Tokyo, San Francisco? As a seasoned travel writer and broadcaster, Jennifer has embarked on plenty of epic adventures before and explored some of the world's most remote regions. She's bonded with people the world over - but she can't, for the life of her, seem to find a soul mate in London. She's tried every dating technique known to womankind, all to no avail. And so she decides to set out on the trip of a lifetime, dating her way around the globe to find the man of her dreams. And date them she does: From the Skate Date in Paris to the High Roller in Vegas, from the Love Professor in Sweden and the Dead Date in Italy to the Penguin Ranger in Australia. But just as she crosses the international dateline one more time, juggling doubts and excess baggage, the impossible happens - has she finally met Mr Right?

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.

Sam Lewis

Lovereading tells me about new books before they hit the shelves, lets me find other authors I may like and has great prize draws!

Sheila Dale

If you LOVE reading then you will love LOVEREADING! It's a 'novel' idea. Seriously though I could not recommend them enough.

Rebecca Whymark

I love reading because my cares & woes vanish for an hour or two whilst I read of the joys, adventures, lives of the characters in the book.

Jennifer Moville

It's the first site that I visit when deciding on the next set of books to buy. A particular treat is being able to download an extract.

Tessa Olson

Lovereading has given me the opportunity to delve into new and exciting worlds of authors who I would never have tried before.

Glynis Elliott

I love reading books I wouldn't normally choose before everyone else gets to read them!

Dawn Lynch

Lovereading is like booking a holiday, you don't know what it will be like and it is a whole new experience.
