'Addie’s friend Cherry is getting married, so together with her sister Deb and a guy called Rodney, they set out for Scotland in Deb’s Mini. But when a Mercedes drives into the back of them, Addie comes face to face with Dylan whom eighteen months before, she had told never to contact her again. He and his friend Marcus are going to the same wedding, the Merc is wrecked, so nothing for it but to share the Mini. Many excruciating miles to travel and their close proximity tearing them apart, their story takes us back to summer in Provence where it began. Their instant attraction, their blossoming love in the sunshine. But summer ended and Dylan went travelling. Add toxic Marcus to the mix and they didn’t stand a chance. Now as they drive to Scotland in the Mini, there can be no way to escape a second chance at love. I highly recommend this clever, satisfying read.' - Aileen Smyth.

THE BRAND NEW NOVEL FROM THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLING AUTHOR, BETH O'LEARY.

Addie and her sister are about to embark on an epic road trip to a friend's wedding in rural Scotland. The playlist is all planned and the snacks are packed.

But, not long after setting off, a car slams into the back of theirs. The driver is none other than Addie's ex, Dylan, who she's avoided since their traumatic break-up two years earlier.

Dylan and his best mate are heading to the wedding too, and they've totalled their car, so Addie has no choice but to offer them a ride. The car is soon jam-packed full of luggage and secrets, and with four hundred miles ahead of them, Dylan and Addie can't avoid confronting the very messy history of their relationship...

Will they make it to the wedding on time? And, more importantly, is this really the end of the road for Addie and Dylan?
