#BlogTour! #Review – The Summer of Chasing Dreams by Holly Martin (@HollyMAuthor)

Thank you to Holly Martin for inviting me to take part in the blog tour for her new novel, ‘The Summer of Chasing Dreams’, and for the ARC. It may be the final day of the tour, but I am super excited to be sharing my review with you all.

Eva is quite content with her life in London. In her job as a cover designer, she works at home, and often in her cosy pyjamas. She’s happy to stay in her safe little world and not explore much outside of it.

She is the opposite of her mum, a free spirit who craved finding adventure and thrills in all corners of the world. But on the day her mum’s will is finalised, Eva finds a list of all the dreams her mum wanted to achieve in her life. Things she never did because she fell pregnant with Eva.

Eva decides these dreams will not go unfulfilled – she is going to be brave and complete them for her mum. As Eva has no experience travelling the world, she hires a guide to go with her on this holiday.

Gorgeous but rude Thor Anderson is not the person she would choose to accompany her on this journey, but somehow she gets stuck with him. As they discover the world together Eva starts to think he might not be as bad as she first thought. She is swept away by Thor’s kindness and mischievous sense of humour. But will it be a simple holiday romance or could this wonderful adventure lead to so much more?

What does TWG think?

Wow – if you are wanting a book which puts ‘heart’ into the word ‘heartwarming’, then you have definitely come to the right place!

I can’t help but admit that when Thor came on the scene, I envisioned the character as an Avenger. Please say that I’m not the only one?! His character is definitely a marmite one and, whilst he didn’t knock me off my feet as quickly as the Avenger dude did, i found that I had a soft spot for him and his little quirks.

The story behind Eva’s journey around the world, is one that made me rather emotional. I had a rather large lump in my throat for a large portion of the storyline due to how much love and emotion was laced through Eva’s actions, and the lengths she wanted to go to for her mum.

‘The Summer of Chasing Dreams’ as a title could not be more apt and I felt that the author delivered the strength of those dreams with such heart and poignancy, as well as her trademark humour. This really is a touching novel, but it is also one which highlights the true beauty of romance and living your life before it’s too late

Another wonderful, beautifully written and humourous novel from Holly Martin – I adored it.
