Blog Tour: Review of Her Aussie Holiday by Stefanie London

Author: Stefanie London
Publisher: Entangled: Amara
Publication Date: August 25, 2020

The Holiday meets Property Brothers in this head over heels romantic comedy full of humor and heart, with a charming Aussie setting. This is a book you’ll want to live in and a story you won’t want to end.

Cora Cabot’s life is falling apart. So when her Australian friend announces she’s secured an internship in the States, Cora has a brilliant idea: house swap! Small-town Australia sounds like the perfect getaway. Only, when she gets there, the house isn’t empty. Turns out her friend’s hot Australian brother is staying there, too—and he doesn’t look happy to see her.

The last thing Trent Walters needs is a roommate for the summer. Especially an American who immediately floods the house and single-handedly destroys the family project his sister created for their parents’ anniversary. Now, not only does Cora insist on helping fix the house, he needs her help re-creating the family scrapbook. And glitter is not his forte.

But between late nights cooking, pints at the local pub, and competitive matches of cricket on the beach, Cora starts to break through Trent’s defenses. Too bad Cora made a promise to return to working with her father at the end of the summer—a promise she can’t break—because this holiday is starting to feel like one she never wants to end.

My thoughts:  

Her Aussie Holiday is the second book in the Patterson's Bluff series.  I have read the first book, however, this one works well as a stand alone.  While I did think this was a cute contemporary romance, I didn't completely love it.  I enjoyed the first book much more.  I think it had to do with the couple.  I just didn't feel the attraction between Cora and Trent.  Other than being told they thought each other was hot.  I  was just a bit overwhelmed.

What I did enjoy about the book was the way Cora and Trent helped each other be true to themselves.  I thought the scene where Trent tells his siblings the truth about himself was very sweet.  I was also rooting for Cora to finally break free from her father and go after her dreams.  I just loved her tattoo.  It's worth checking out and  I would also recommend the first book, The Aussie Next Door.
