It gives me enormous pleasure to share the latest of my online reviews with My Weekly. This time it’s The Staycation by Cressida McLaughlin.
The Staycation was published by Harper Collins on 3rd February 2022 and is available for purchase through the links here.
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…
