'This wonderfully romantic and funny novel manages to fulfill all the best fantasies, including a gorgeous, humanitarian hero and a camper van!' Katie Fforde

When Carrie's fiancé Huw suddenly calls off their wedding, and she finds out he's marrying another woman, she's devastated. Desperate to get away, Carrie jumps at her best friend Rowena's suggestion of a road trip in her VW camper van. But when Rowena has to pull out and Matt Landor, an old friend of Huw's, ends up filling the breach, she's not so sure. Will fate take the pair on an altogether different journey?

""Phillipa Ashley is always a surefire bet for three things (1) an awesome romance with plenty of angst and chemistry (2) humor that keeps you laughing and (3) character who are easy to love, laugh and identify with. Carrie Goes Off the Map is definitely the perfect example of that. I can't wait for whatever Phillipa Ashley does next."" - Books Like Breathing

""ABSOLUTELY LOVED IT. I love Phillipa Ashley's writing style and her romances are so wonderfully put together, you find yourself taken away to another place with them... I so enjoy these romances since they really have a perfect balance of humor with interesting characters and dialog. Now, I am patiently waiting for Ashley to write me another story."" - Bookhounds

""Much like Elizabeth Bennet and her Mr. Darcy, Carrie and her doctor's relationship gets off to a rocky start with plenty of bickering and misunderstandings, but you cheer them on from the very beginning. Really, if your fiance broke up with you weeks before your wedding, what could be better than traveling around coastal England with a sexy doctor?
