The Staycation By Cressida McLaughlin

The Staycation By Cressida McLaughlin


Travel agent, Hester Monday, has been keeping a secret …

Thanks to her fear of flying, she hasn’t been on a plane in years. Now Hester wants to make a good impression on her newest client, Jake Oakenfield, who was heroically injured saving an old lady, and is now laid up in a luxury hotel.

For Jake, unable to return to New York, binge watching Netflix just won’t do. He wants Hester to invent the ultimate escape and re-create her most magical holidays abroad from the confines of his hotel room.

As their perfect mini-breaks around the globe take on a life of their own, Hester wonders if her world of make-believe is all starting to feel just a little too real…

My Thoughts:

I loved the idea of this story, it was original and a fresh idea. After an accident where Jake has to be laid up for a while, he sinks into a low mood and cannot see anyway out, until his sister brings in Hester to arrange a holiday for him but he wants to get out of his hotel room now, he is not a good patient, so Hester comes up with a unique way of sending him across the world without him going anywhere. I loved the story line and where it leaded, it was a uplifting and romantic story with some wonderful characters including Hester, she seemed like such a lovely woman, always putting people before herself. I want to read it again now to bring me some warmth and joy.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
