Addie and her sister are on an epic road trip to a friend's wedding in rural Scotland. But, not long after setting off, a car slams into theirs. The driver is none other than Addie's ex, who she hasn't seen since their traumatic break-up two years earlier.

Dylan and his best mate are heading to the wedding too, so Addie has no choice but to offer them a ride. And with four hundred miles to go, they can't avoid confronting the very messy history of their relationship . . .

Will they make it to the wedding? And, more importantly, is this really the end of the road for Addie and Dylan?

Praise for The Road Trip: The utterly heart-warming and joyful novel from the author of The Flatshare

  • A charming, heartfelt story of love found and love potentially lost - The Road Trip is steamy and sexy, properly witty, and unabashedly romantic. I couldn't get enough! I loved the glimpses into "then" and "now". Nobody does it like Beth does - Laura Jane Williams

  • I loved The Road Trip and think it's O'Leary's best yet. Moody and wise, exploring the contrast between the all-consuming recklessness of first love and what happens years on, after the break up, after the end. And all in a closed-set car journey . . . O'Leary has a knack for articulating the things we all think and feel in relationships - Gillian McAllister

  • This book is perfect - Rosie Walsh

  • I enjoyed The Road Trip immensely. O'Leary is such a wonderful writer, she weaves laughter and tears seamlessly through her novels and I look forward to reading every one. Joyful and uplifting - Sheila O'Flanagan

  • So romantic and moving and brilliantly told, with characters who are relatable but beautifully flawed. The Road Trip is an absolute knockout and it's going to be a huge hit - Louise O'Neill

  • An achingly tender love story - funny and moving in equal measure. Beth O'Leary's best book yet - Richard Roper

  • O'Leary does it again! The Road Trip is another sure-fire hit, filled with characters you won't forget. You'll be fully invested in Dylan and Addie's relationship from the word go and the moment you turn that final page you'll be wondering how on earth you'll survive the wait until your next O'Leary hit! - Mike Gayle

  • Beth is quite rightly earning her title as 'Queen of Uplit' with her funny and mood-lifting third book - Prima

Beth O'Leary

Beth O'Leary is a Sunday Times bestselling author whose novels have been translated into more than thirty languages. Her debut, The Flatshare, sold over a million copies and will soon be a TV series. Her other novels, The Switch, The Road Trip and The No-Show, were all instant bestsellers, and The Switch has been optioned by Amblin Partners, Steven Spielberg's production company. Beth writes her books in the Hampshire countryside with a very badly behaved Golden Retriever for company. If she's not at her desk, you'll usually find her curled up somewhere with a book, a cup of tea and several woolly jumpers (whatever the weather).
