Passport to Happiness
An inspiring and escapist read – Eat, Pray, Love meets Bridget Jones!
Will the trip of her dreams…
Everly Carter is bored.
With her job, with her single status and with the never ending line of rubbish men on Tinder. Tired going through the motions of semming hpappy, Everly wants to be happy!
So, in a spontaneous moment of bravery (perhaps spurred on by a few cocktails) Everly books a holiday. Time away, alone, to find out what she really want from life.
Become the journey of her lifetime?
Everly’s search for happiness taker her to picturesque Swiss villages and the sunsets of glamourous Bermuda. But with every new stamp in her passport, Everly still feels as though something is missing….
Could it be that true happiness is hard to find, until she finds herself?
Today I am lucky enough to be taking part in the blog tour for Passport to Happiness thanks to Rachel at Rach’s RandomResources, Carrie Stone and Harper Impulse.
I really enjoyed following Everly’s journey of self-discovery. Although she is a few years older than me, I felt that at the start of the book I could really relate to how Everly was feeling with life, which I think is why I warmed to her so much. To then see how she developed throughout the book, was both warming and inspiring.
You are transported to the places that Everly visits throughout the book, Switzerland, Bermuda and Bali, and it’s like you are there with her.
I was unsure how I would feel overall about this book because I found a couple of the secondary characters, Everly’s sister Amy and her friend Tilly, rather annoying. However, despite this it didn’t detract from how much I enjoyed the book.
This was the first of Carrie Stone’s books that I have come across, and I will definitely be keeping my eye out for more.
This is a great summer read especially if you have a case of wanderlust.
