About the Book

Warm, escapist fiction from the bestselling author of the Cornish Cream Tea series.

When travel agent, Hester, gets to plan a staycation for a traveller on an enforced stopover, it opens up a whole world of possibilities…

Hester Monday works for a high-end travel agency in London, booking luxury trips for wealthy clients. Her ability to sell the perfect destination makes it look easy, but the reality is, Hester has a fear of flying. Somehow, up until now, she’s been able to get away with it without telling anyone the truth.

When her boss asks her to go to one of London’s most exclusive hotels to book a holiday for a man who is recovering from an accident, Hester thinks it will be just like any other job. Instead, it’s anything but. As she virtually takes him to far-flung destinations, it all starts to feel like more than just make-believe. Hester has to face the facts – the lies she’s been telling might end up costing her everything.
