About the Author

And then something happened. I time-traveled to my twenties. I got transported back to the time I visited Hong Kong, to when I hated my high powered but stressful corporate job, to when I argued with my family, to when I argued with my partner. It’s a romance in which the romance is almost incidental, as if the main character had her own manic pixie dream guy.
I laughed, I cringed, I cheered. I loved it.
A fun beach read or perfect for a train or plane ride. Can't wait to see more from Kristin Rockaway.
Perhaps the biggest surprise for me when I started reading it was that it’s Kristen’s first book. Why? Because it is excellently written, with characters you’ll love and descriptions of places you’ll want to go to. All, the sign of an author who has been writing for a while.
From the very beginning you’ll identify with Sophie, the book’s main character. Then a chapter or two into the story, you’ll realize there are two Sophie’s. Sophie the planner; who inspects every possible path her life can take and plots and plans everything she needs to do to get to her goals.
The second is Sophie the wild one, who she doesn’t even know exists until she meets Carson. Carson, who sees her wild side and sets it free while they run around Hong Kong together for a week. But more importantly, he awakens her to the fact that up till now, she’s not been seeing the world but only collecting passport stamps.
I’ll stop here because I don’t want to give away any of the plot. Once again because Kristen has done an excellent job weaving small details into it that each have a message. Especially if you love to travel.
Which brings me back to my first point. As an author of romance novels and world traveler, I am in awe of Kristen’s talent. No one should be this good with their first novel, but she is. Her character development will have you cheering for Sophie, and Carson at every plot twist and turn and her descriptions of the places they go will have you checking airline fares.
An excellently written, easy to read, first book that I know you’ll love, from an author who I will definitely follow.
A definite add to your “Must Read List”.
I loved the fun and flirty relationship between Carson and Sophie but especially love how strong and independent she is. She solves her own problems, owns up to her mistakes and finds the life she wants to live on her own terms.
