Avoid thinking about work/Connor/five year plan!!

A four day break from her hectic life to relax in the countryside and hang out at a local festival (for free!) is just what Fiona Delaney needs. With her best friends, great tunes and a cool looking hat her Instagram shots are going to look A-Mazing!

Until suddenly glamping starts to feel a lot more like camping and Fiona’s in desperate search of a comfy chair, wi-fi and a chilled glass of wine. But when she finally makes it to the local pub she discovers this trip could be more than just a holiday, it might just change her life forever…

Fiona is a planner, she loves having a 5 year plan with her boyfriend Connor, she spends all her time saving, and planning to save etc... So a few days relaxing in the countryside doesn't fully appeal to her sense of structure. 

But when things go wrong at work, and she and Connor are barely having time to see each other any more. Her friends persuade her to go along with their bank holiday mini break, glamping, at a new-age festival. Which happens to be in the same town that Connor will be working at a music festival that same weekend. 

What you end up having is a hilarious novella, with a group of close friends, staying in yurts, making the best of their surreal circumstances. There are so many fun moments, and situations that make you laugh, it's brilliant. 

The setting of the festival sounded very picturesque, even if the journey to get there wasnt as simple as perhaps thought. 

Besides Fiona, and the handsome hero in the local pub who keeps being in the right place at the right time, my favourite character had to be Brian Harvey. In this case Brian Harvey is not the boyband star of the 90s, but actually a very cute dog, which is full of character and playfulness. 

I found Five Go Glamping to be a very entertaining book, just the right level of light heartedness. It's the sort of book that could cheer you up. Fantastic debut from Liz Tipping, and I'll be interested in seeing what she writes next. 

Thank you to Carina and Netgalley for this review copy. This was my honest opinion. 

Thank you again to Carina for inviting me to be part of the blog tour for Five Go Glamping, it was my absolute pleasure to take part.
