#BookReview Flying Solo by Zoe May

Title: Flying Solo by Zoe May

Date Published: 6th July 2020

Genre: Romantic Comedy


Rachel Watson has it all worked out. By 30, she’s ticked off most of the goals on her Life List. She’s a home owner, a partner at her law firm, she has a gorgeous boyfriend, lots of hobbies and loads of good friends. The only thing that’s missing is a ring on her finger.

According to her Life List, Rachel should be getting hitched around now, so when her boyfriend, Paul, plans a romantic date, Rachel’s pretty confident he’s going to propose. Except Paul has other ideas. He’s jetting off to India to find himself.

Distraught, Rachel doesn’t know what to do. Not one to easily admit defeat, she embarks on a mission to win him back.

Flying solo to India is definitely not part of Rachel’s plans, but could her trip teach her unexpected lessons about love, life and herself? Could she realise that perhaps her Life List wasn’t exactly what she wanted, after all? 


So I know the second in this series, Flying Duo, is coming out next year and I signed up for the blog tour, then I remembered I had a copy of the first, so I thought I had better start there.

Rachel thinks her boyfriend Paul is going to propose, which would put her on track for her life list, but she gets a rude shock when he ups and dumps her, jetting off to India. With some gentle persuasion from her friend Priya, she goes after Paul and tries to win him back. What she doesn’t expect is that the trip will change her life by meeting the handsome Seb along the way. 

Flying solo is a romance all about taking chances and finding yourself in the most unexpected places.

Rachel is ambitious, organised and focused which in the beginning of the novel made her a little unlikeable but as she starts to relax and we find out why she is the way she is, I really warmed up to her.

My only issue was with Seb, I felt he was a bit bland compared to Rachel. Maybe it was just because he seemed so chilled out or maybe he needed a little more development but as I said earlier, there’s a second novel coming out soon so I’m looking forward to getting to know his character better.

Flying Solo is a light-hearted romance and the perfect for a bit of escapism.
