It's been seven years since Chelsea Martin embarked on her yearlong post-college European adventure. Since then, she's lost her mother to cancer and watched her sister marry twice, while Chelsea's thrown herself into work, becoming one of the most talented fundraisers for the American Cancer Coalition, and with the exception of one annoyingly competent coworker, Jason Knightley, her status as most talented fundraiser is unquestioned. 

 When her introverted mathematician father announces he's getting remarried, Chelsea is forced to acknowledge that her life stopped after her mother died, and that the last time she can remember being happy, in love, or enjoying her life was on her gap year. Inspired to retrace her steps--to find Colin in Ireland, Jean Claude in France, and Marcelino in Italy--Chelsea hopes that one of these three men who stole her heart so many years ago, can help her find it again. 

 From the start of her journey nothing goes as planned, but as Chelsea reconnects with her old self, she also finds love in the very last place she expected.

My Thoughts: 

Chelsea goes to meet her father and find out he's getting married and is totally unprepared for it.  She finds herself loosing herself in her work and not finding love.  Her sister challenges Chelsea to find what she had when she was abroad prior to her mother's death.  See what she is missing in life.

This book has so much going on as we go on Chelsea's journey with her.  We get to see Ireland and see how her relationship with Colin faired and so on to Paris and Italy with a different boy each time. Chelsea also finds her talking more with a co-worker she didn't get along with Jason Knightley.  She learns why he does the work eh does.  

I loved this adventure and it definitely is a promising adventure for the summer.  Since most of us are stuck on a staycation this was a great adventure to go on in the comfort of your own house!  This book will pull you in and captivate you until the last page is turned!  I hope Ms. McKinlay does a book like this again.  Everything she touches seems to be incredible!
