A side-splittingly funny summer read about two best friends who decide to take a chance and travel the world, finding themselves – and finding love – along the way!
Until a few weeks ago, Leanne was a thirty-something who lived with her mother. And yes, she still slept under her Barbie bedspread.
Until recently, Maddy was married to a man whose golf club got more action than she did.
But not anymore.
Leanne and Maddy (and their miniature poodle Bridget) have packed their suitcases and bid goodbye to their dreary lives for the summer. After winding along Italy’s sun-dappled Adriatic Coast in a shiny red convertible, sailing around Croatia’s gorgeous Dalmatian Islands awaits them.
Days splashing around in sparkling turquoise waters and wine-fuelled nights under the stars are every girl’s dream. But with a devilishly handsome Italian on board, old flames to get over and holiday flings to contend with, there’s plenty of drama ahoy. One thing’s for certain, Leanne and Maddy’s trip promises to be a holiday to remember…
A joyful, laugh-out-loud and feel-good story that will make you want to pack your bags, set off on an adventure and live life to the max. Fans of Fiona Gibson, Lucy Diamond and Carole Matthews will love this hilarious and heartwarming read.

After having read The Road Trip, I was thrilled to rejoin Maddie and Leanne on the continuation of their adventure.
I felt like Leanne’s perspective was more relaxed than Maddy’s and was, therefore, more agreeable for the reader. Furthermore, I believed that the author’s writing and character development had vastly improved from the first novel.
As for the setting, Susanne O’Leary couldn’t have chosen much better than a sailing trip through the Dalmatians onboard a luxury yacht. The descriptions were rich, and I must concede that I may have felt envious of Leanne and Maddy on more than one occasion throughout the book.
Overall, I truly enjoyed A Holiday to Remember and was sad to see the end. I hope that Susanne O’Leary considers writing a third installment because now I am invested and need to know how Maddy and Leanne end up. I would highly recommend this story as a perfect read to close off your Summer.
