I almost passed this book up at a flea market, until I noticed a review on the front cover from Adriana Trigiani (My favorite author!) saying, "This is one to share with your girlfriends."

LOVED this one from the start. After her boyfriend dumps her for another woman, Lyssa Allen decides to have 'An adventure' and does something she would never before even think of doing! She takes off all on her own (Leaving her hairdryer behind!) for a month-long trek to Napal.

A funny, sweet story about self-discovery and finding love in the strangest of places.

Good chick lit about a woman who discovers herself on a trip to a third world country. She meets a man there and has to chose between him and her ex. Good read.

***SPOILERS BELOW***

It did take me a few chapters to get into this book. At the beginning of the book I was a little annoyed with how Lyssa was so dependent on Jake and how obsessed she was with trying to have a baby. I did feel sorry for the guy a little bit until I found out Jake was cheating on her. I dont care what excuse a person has for cheating he/she should never do it. I did enjoy reading about life in Nepal, it got me thinking about different cultures all over the world. Carole did a great job at explaining how life was in Nepal. I also enjoyed the relationship Lyssa had with her sister it reminded me in quite a few ways of mine and my sisters relationship. All in all this book made me long for an adventure!

"After her boyfriend, Jake, dumps her for an Angelina Jolie look-alike who climbs Mt. Everest, Lyssa Allen decides maybe a little adventure of her own can win him back. Leaving hair dryer, lattes and dreams of babies behind, this thoughter-than-she-thought London editor sets off for Nepal.

Her month-long sojourn teaches Lyssa that her horizons are bigger than she knew--and the man of her dreams far different than she thought....As her eyes are opened by her handsome American tour guide, Lyssa wonders if she can ever return to her old life. And when it's time to go home she faces the hardest decision of her life.
