'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?

Review:

"."..engaging and very English contemporary romance... Ashley's charming prose makes the journey enjoyable."" - Publishers Weekly

"."..her plucky characters keep picking themselves up and pushing on to their happy endings... this tale has its own, Bridget Jones-style appeal."" - Booklist

""Quirky and fun, Carrie Goes Off the Map is a pleasant mix of beach read and Brit chick lit...an appealing and realistic male lead, whose eyes will smolder even for the reader."" - RT Book Reviews

"."..the characters and story are fun and the read is light and easy."" - Martha's Book Shelf

""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

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? This book is a wonderful escape for lovers of British chick lit."" - Donna Feddern
