Honeymoon For One by Portia MacIntosh / #Review @BoldwoodBooks @PortiaMacIntosh

When disaster strikes, paradise calls…
As a published novelist, Lila Rose has been writing about fictional weddings all her life. But disaster strikes on her own big day when she hears her philandering fiancé, Daniel whispering sweet nothings to someone else.

With her dream day shattered, all Lila wants to do is run and hide, so she decides to fly solo on her own honeymoon.

When Daniel arrives in the resort with his new squeeze, Lila strikes up a ‘showmance’ with hot new movie star, Freddie Bianchi. Freddie is perfect for the part and Lila soon relaxes into her leading lady role.

But as truth starts to merge with fiction, could real love be in the air?




I used to read nothing but chic lit a few years ago. I was a big fan of the rom coms. On the one hand because I enjoyed it a lot. On the other hand because I was too scared to read a thriller when I was alone at night. ;).

People change though and apparently I grew a pair LOL and I wanted a change. The last couple of years my favorite genre is now (yes, you guessed) thrillers, crime and gangland. Talking about a 180° change of direction, but every once in a while I go back to my first love: rom coms. It’s true. You never forget about your first love. 🙂

I have never tried a book by this author before and now I regret it deeply. She made me smile from the very first page on and the whole story was filled with warmth. That was not only due to the fact the author took us to sweltering Italy, but because of the friendship between Ali and Lila and the way Freddie tried to make Lila feel better. Of course there were a few cold breezes too when certain people arrived on the scene too and even a storm was brewing. 

One thing you are certain you are going to get and that is a happy ending. It might take a while and you might not see how thing are going to turn out for the better, but just wait for it and you will be rewarded.

A lovely book that reminded me again why I used to read this genre a lot. 5 stars 

Thank you
