The Island Escape

by Kerry Fisher

They say to never judge a book by its cover, but it was obvious from the start that this would be a great beach read. It’s about two women going through some major changes. Roberta is trying to explore the hilarious and scary world of dating after leaving her husband of over a decade, while Octavia is dealing with the banality of a traditional life with three kids when all she has ever wanted was to travel the world. The book takes place in England, with sojourns in Corsica and Italy. It’s a light read that will have you involved in the lives of the characters. I read it in two days. Enjoy!

Booklovers will rejoice in the fact that Kinokuniya Dubai has now reopened in Dubai Mall and now has an online bookstore with a selection of 6 million books! Stay tuned for more awesome vacay reads #Bookworm

Editing travel pages was always my favourite part of working for lifestyle magazines. I started this blog out of a love of beautiful hotels that provide the fairytale escape of a day as a princess where breakfast is a buffet and chocolates appear on my pillow.
