A new life down under? It’s not as perfect as you’d think.
Katie and Tom’s marriage is in trouble. As is their bank account. So, when Tom tells Katie that they need to talk, she knows it must be about one of two things, and neither are good. But when he blind-sides her saying that his boss is sending him to Australia – permanently – Katie realises it might just be what they need to save their marriage.
Trouble is, she doesn’t like the heat, can’t swim and hates spiders. Not to mention the bouts of homesickness – and Tom’s endless business trips. Katie is finding the hope of saving their marriage slowly slipping through her fingers. But Katie is determined to take the bull by the horns – and her Speedos by the strap – and tackles her new life.
When all is said and done which side of the globe will she decide to call home

Chells and Books Review:
I would liked to thank Aria for asking me to review this book and to be part of the blog tour.
This is a lovely read and one I very much enjoyed. The vibrancy of the cover reflects well inside the book to some interesting characters. A marriage needs saving but will going across the globe save it? Poor Katie is going through some struggles and moving across the world might not be the the right move to make as first thought. This is a book filled with lots of action and interesting things happening.
I would have liked to have come away after reading feeling I really knew that characters and setting better but other than that it was a great read with some very funny moments thrown in.
A great debut from Kendra.
