Book Review: Destination India by Katy Colins

The Lonely Hearts Travel Club is back! This time, our favourite backpacker, Georgia Green, travels to India alone to find out why this tour is not working as well as it should. I had a lot of fun following her around and I cannot wait for more adventures with her. Read my thought of Destination India here:

Blurb: Let yourself go…

Georgia Green is about to board a plane to India, alone – again. Things were supposed to be different this time, but Georgia backpacked solo to Thailand and survived, what could possibly go wrong?

Only she is about to find out that when in India the country calls the shots – not you.

First of all I would like to thank the publisher for sending me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*

Review: After reading Destination Thailand, Katy Colins' debut and first book in the series, earlier this year and absolutely loving it, I was really looking forward to join Georgia Green in her adventures again. In Destination India, we see a new side of hers: the business woman. Since coming back from Thailand, she has set up a new business: a travel agency that helps people, especially recently dumped people, find themselves again while travelling around the globe. But there's a slight problem, Georgia has become a workaholic. She no longer has time for friends, family nor travelling.

I found this premise really interesting, as you could clearly see how her character had evolved and changed from that lost girl with no clear goal in life to this determined one with a great passion for her work. But maybe a bit too much passion? As soon as she embarked on that plane to India, I knew we were in for some more self-discovering and some crazy adventures, and I was not wrong.

Georgia's trip to India is supposed to be a business one, as they have been having problems with this tour and she wants to find out what is going on but soon, we realise that India is a country where things are not that easy to control and Georgia's crazier spark makes a brilliant come back. As in the first book, I had such a great time following her around and discovering this new country through her eyes. As usual, Katy Colins makes a great job of describing the atmosphere of the place and I found myself wishing, more than once, that I could also be in India discovering this beautiful country.

I'm always a bit afraid of reading sequels when I have loved the first book so much, but I really think that the author managed to keep me interested all through the book and added new layers to the story, making you stop and think more than once if you are living the life you want and making you value the little things in life. That's there's a third coming our way in autumn makes me incredibly happy as I can't get enough of Georgia's shenanigans. 

Destination India is another winner from Katy Colins, a rising star. Perfect to escape for a few hours to the colourful India! A highly recommended book for this summer.
