A delightful read!

30-year-old Bostonian, Maggie Flannigan, is expected to marry former high school himbo, Thomas (thereafter to become a Stepford wife in the 'burbs).

Thomas reluctantly agrees, but at the last moment on their layover in Paris, he backs out and leaves Maggie on her own. She breaks the engage ...more

A lightly-drawn ‘romantic read’, set against the unusual backdrop of a hike to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro and African travels, using enough cleverly woven details to have the reader convinced of the setting.

Written with an easy touch, and with well-drawn characters, the author has engaged just the right level of humour. The banter between Adam and Maggie had me smiling and I enjoyed the ‘familiar’ plot twists, such as our combatants being obliged to share a tent on the first night of their
