Can true love go the distance?
London lawyer Rachel Watson has wound up in an Indian ashram with hippy heartthrob lover, Seb.
A high-achiever, Rachel has always lived life according to her Life List, ticking off goals along the way. But now that she’s in India, Rachel is going with the flow, or at least trying to…
Rachel’s visa is running out and it’s time to decide whether her relationship with Seb is a holiday romance or built to last.
The pair embark on a trip to Nepal for an Everest base camp trek, but will their relationship survive this gruelling expedition or is it time to part ways?
Flying Duo is the second romantic comedy in the ‘Flying’ series, following on from bestseller, Flying Solo, which was described by the Daily Express newspaper as ‘a must read that will appeal to fans of Sophie Kinsella, Beth O’Leary and Mhari McFarlane’ ★★★★★

I want to thank Rachel at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting me on this tour and providing me with a copy of Flying Duo in exchange for an honest review.
I read the first in the series Flying Solo at the end of last year to prepare for Flying Duo but I needn’t have worried it works well as a standalone but as always to get the most out of the characters I recommend reading the first novel.
Rachel Watson has become somewhat infamous in India after suing the Guru Hridaya, the owner of the ashram she met dishy Canadian Seb, for tax evasion. Her work visa is rapidly expiring and does not know what the future is for her and Seb. He suggests a trip to Nepal to climb Mount Everest. What could go wrong?
Flying Duo came along at just the right time. I needed something light-hearted reading along with the added bonus of being set in a different country from my own, which made me feel like I was escaping from my house for a while (seriously sick of staring at the same walls right now).
What I liked about this story which I thought was missing from the first is that we get to know Seb a bit better and even meet his dad! I also enjoyed Rachel’s progression as a character, letting go of her life list and trying (still failing a little) to live in the moment.
The ending to the story was the perfect wrap up to Rachel and Seb’s story and gave me all the awws.
Flying Duo gave me all the fuzzy feelings and escapism I needed in a romcom novel.
