Not all those who wander are lost, but Aubree Sadler most definitely is on this novel’s whirlwind trip through Europe.
Aubree can’t think of a better place to be than in perfectly boring Ohio, and she’s ready for a relaxing summer. But when her older sister, Elizabeth, gets into real trouble, Aubree is talked into taking over Elizabeth’s summer job, leading a group of senior citizens on a bus tour through Europe.
Aubree doesn’t even make it to the first stop in Amsterdam before their perfect plan unravels, leaving her with no phone, no carefully prepared binder full of helpful facts, and an unexpected guest: the tour company owner’s son, Sam. Considering she’s pretending to be Elizabeth, she absolutely shouldn’t fall for him, but she can’t help it, especially with the most romantic European cities as the backdrop for their love story.
But her relationship with Sam is threatening to ruin her relationship with her sister, and she feels like she’s letting both of them down. Aubree knows this trip may show her who she really is—she just hopes she likes where she ends up. (Goodreads)
I absolutely couldn't wait to get started on Wanderlost by Jen Malone! This book seriously sounded like the perfect book to start off my summer break, and it totally was!!
The main character in this story, Aubree, sounded a lot like me. She was perfectly content with the boring life that she had in Ohio, and planned to spend the summer by the pool with her friends. But this trip to Europe is exactly what she needed. It forced her so far out of her comfort zone, and I loved every part of the journey that she took. And let's not forget the people that she took the journey with, these seniors were seriously some great characters, I adored them.
The storyline for the book was fun and completely enchanting. Not only did it get me super excited for summer, but it also made me want to travel to Europe and experience all the things that Aubree experienced on her awesome journey. One day I will totally make that happen, and I absolutely can't wait!!
Overall; If you love books about road trips and traveling, with a sweet romance on the side, you're totally going to want to check out Wanderlost!! It's a perfect summer read, so add it to your TBR right now!! I'm super excited to read more by Jen Malone in the future!
