あらすじ・解説

One of Popsugar’s Best New Books for Summer 2020 

A 30-year-old woman retraces her gap year through Ireland, France, and Italy to find love - and herself - in this hilarious and heartfelt novel.

It's been seven years since Chelsea Martin embarked on her yearlong postcollege European adventure. Since then, she's lost her mother to cancer and watched her sister marry twice, while Chelsea's thrown herself into work, becoming one of the most talented fundraisers for the American Cancer Coalition, and with the exception of one annoyingly competent coworker, Jason Knightley, her status as most successful moneymaker is unquestioned. 

When her introverted mathematician father announces he's getting remarried, Chelsea is forced to acknowledge that her life stopped after her mother died and that the last time she can remember being happy, in love, or enjoying her life was on her year abroad. Inspired to retrace her steps - to find Colin in Ireland, Jean Claude in France, and Marcelino in Italy - Chelsea hopes that one of these three men who stole her heart so many years ago can help her find it again. 

From the start of her journey nothing goes as planned, but as Chelsea reconnects with her old self, she also finds love in the very last place she expected.

Good read

Very poignant story. I really enjoy Brittany Pressley as the reader. The book is very different from the author's cupcake series. I enjoyed this book.

Ugh

I usually reserve reviews for books I enjoy, as I don't actually get any satisfaction giving poor reviews.

But I cannot hold my tongue on this one. The story sounds like it was written by a precocious, 17 yr old virgin who wants to be edgy part of the time. SO SO SO cheesy and obscenely predictable. Not funny as I was hoping. No one in this story is a believable character. No one acts like this in real life. Especially 29 year old women. Or any human for that matter. Redundant I know but I cannot stress it enough. The narration wasn't intolerable, but when you do a Bostonian accent, you have to do it for all the words. Not just Martin, or like 2 others. Also, Chelsea and her whole family are supposedly Boston natives as well, yet they all sound like their from a wholesome college town in southern Wisconsin. Weird. Anyway I 150% do not recommend. I wouldn't have finished it but I couldn't return it and honestly I just thought "how much worse can this get?" The answer is infinitely. Infinitely worse.

Retracing your steps to find yourself

When you have lost yourself in your work and ignoring life, it's time to shake things up and go find yourself. In this case, by revisiting the past. However after 7 years, can you really find yourself that far in the past? An intriguing look at overcoming grief and often not seeing the positives that are right in front of you. Excellent characters, fun plot and intriguing interactions between characters. I hope to see more of these characters in the future.

It made me smile and giggle.

Sometimes we all take life too seriously and forget that the people we love and life we have, we only get one time on this earth to enjoy them.
This book was funny and entertaining...
I got something out of it.....

Great book, excellent narration!

I loved this story, it kept me riveted. It was sweet, emotional, fun and I loved that it took me on a tour and brought back my own memories of Ireland, Paris and Italy. There was only one thing that bugged me which is why I gave the story 4 stars.
Toward the end, in the part where every romantic comedy has the twist where one party mistakes the other party of doing something wrong...before it gets sorted...I didn't think this part made sense and wasn't strong, but actually annoying. Chelsea gets mad at Jason for lying. But...I didn't recognize it as a lie to get mad over, it was a loving gesture. It didn't bother me. So I was taken aback when the author then portrayed Chelsea as a crazy woman because I felt her angry reaction was way overboard. All I could think is...this is why guys think women are crazy, they think we all behave this way. Well I don't and I wouldn't have reacted that way to this situation, so it didn't feel genuine. I don't like that she was made to be an over-reactor, "crazy" woman. I don't think her reaction was warranted at all for the tiny fib he told...because he loved her and was doing a grand romantic gesture. So during that part I was uncomfortable and thought it didn't make sense. But I really enjoyed the rest of the story. And the narration with all the characters and accents was outstanding!!

Hate the ending

This was an OK read. The storyline was a little annoying because it’s very rational for someone to be skeptical of their loved one wanted to marry someone so early in a relationship. But the end of the story just really ticked me off and it made me feel like I wasted my whole 12 hours of the time.

Good, but....

I really liked the idea of the story, and most of the book itself too. However, the dialogues were too stretched out, and the plot was a little weak. And, suffering from a loss myself at a similar age, some of the (latter) parts didn't resonate with me. If I stopped reading a chapter or 2 earlier, I would have finished it with a better feeling.
