    Lesson learned from this book: stop buying free or cheap books on Kindle, because they will more than likely suck! After deciding that 's books are pretty pricey, I've been trying to find books I that I may like in the free or discounted sections. Alas, the only two books I have found this way have not been very good. Get it together, !Anyways, this is a story about Carrie who is dumped by her boyfriend of ten years when he cheats and finds another bride. She loses it and tries to destroy his we [...]

    I don't know how to explain this book except that it definitely has a "Beginning" - Carrie's fiancee cheats on her; "Middle" - Carrie tries to find herself by having one-night stands; and "End" - Carrie finally realizes she loves Matt. Yes, all books have these elements; however, I've never come across one that is so evident. Considering this book's plot is about Carrie and Matt getting to know each other and falling in love, the book skirts around and around, zig-zagging all over the place befo [...]

    Posted to Almost Grown-up:Romantic comedy and chick-lit used to be my genres of choice, so I’m not sure exactly how I let it become so long since reading my last one. I’m not about to hop off the Young Adult train, but Carrie Goes Off the Map was a nice change from the usual.Carrie is all set to get married to her fiance, Huw. He, unfortunately, has different ideas and dumps her on the night of his stag party. Months later, Carrie hears that Huw has rebounded quite easily and is getting marr [...]

    do love the English, all those words I do not hear that often when I read so many American novels. But here I get them all and I bloody love it.Carrie is dumped by her fiancé (who I thought was an utter ass, but later I did change my mind. He was just a man after all.) Poor Carrie is hurt and angry and I like her, and I like her even more when she has a little revenge. Her new leading man is Matt, but things move slowly along and that is a good thing. I really like how it works out in the end. [...]

    Can I just state the obvious? This book was filled with clichés, lame sexual undertones and Basically it's everything you think a chick-flick will be, but It's also Really really awesomeI loved itMaybe it's just because of my own pathetic love-life or something, but I seriously couldn't put it down Even though I knew how it would end all along, I just Adored it So.If you're a girl, or A really gay boy, you should read this.

    First time reading this author and it was sort of good and sort of not. Very readable, but the characters were pretty slutty. I didn't get that part at all.

    Light and easy chick lit read on beach holiday so four stars for its genre.

    Quick easy read but a bit too predictable and cheesyor perhaps I was just in a grumpy mood. I enjoyed it by the end in any case and would recommend to romance fans.

    [Full review on Alexa Loves Books]After reading so many paranormal and dystopian books, I wanted something a bit more fun to read. When I saw the cover for the novel, I was instantly intrigued. And then my blogger friend Jana reviewed the book here and I decided I wanted to read it too.I got exactly what I wanted - Carrie Goes Off the Map, a light, heartwarming and very fun read. You really cannot go wrong with a road trip, a hot guy (who's a doctor to boot) and a girl who's trying to figure out [...]

    I chose this book because I just wanted something light to read and doesn't have a lot of page count to rev me up from my reading slump so I didn't have much expectations for this book and it was good actually because it allowed me to just enjoy the book. Surprisingly I really did enjoy the book, I couldn't put it down but now thinking in retrospect I am not too sure why I initially thought the book was great (think: 4-5 stars great) in the first place.The book was very predictable and was fille [...]

    Carrie Goes Off the Map is a very enjoyable road trip novel through England. Carrie is two weeks away from marrying her long-time boyfriend Huw, when he drops a bombshell; he is breaking up with her. Carrie had put aside her own dreams of becoming an actress for Huw and had spent the years since graduating from college helping Huw run his family dairy farm. Suddenly, without a purpose in life, Carrie moves in with her friend Rowena and tries to determine what her next move will be. Rowena tries [...]

    As a card carrying Anglophile, I relish stories from British authors, both historical and contemporary. CARRIE GOES OFF THE MAP is a fun "road trip" story that begins with outrageous laughs and ends with heartwarming cheer. Phillipa Ashley offers an older heroine in Carrie, who thought life was safe with her college ("uni") boyfriend, Huw. They have lived together and worked together on his family farm for 10 years. When Huw calls off the wedding days for the blessed event, Carrie finds herself [...]

    I was lucky enough to win a signed copy of this book and having never read the author before I didn't know what to expect but after reading the blurb on the back I couldn't wait to start reading it.Carrie has been with her farmer fiance Huw for 10 years and then just 2 weeks before the wedding Huw suddenly announces he doesn't want to marry Carrie, no hint anything was wrong just bang sorry I can't marry you. Well Carrie goes from being close to her wedding day to rock bottom and no really under [...]

    Many contemporary romance and chick-lit books read just like a romantic comedy. Two lonely or scorned people meet, they spend a lot of time together, they argue or some kind of misunderstanding happens and they refuse to speak to one another… only to find their way back to each other, a happily ever after in their very near future, leaving a smile on your face. Carrie Goes Off the Map gives you just that. Carrie is left two weeks before her wedding (after a 10 year relationship!) because her f [...]

Neither one could even imagine that he could ever cheat on her, but right before the big church wedding, he calls it off after a ten year relationship.

    Originally reviewed at Novel EscapesCarrie Goes Off The Map is a lighter novel, with a few heavier bits tossed in, and I really enjoyed Carrie and Matt’s cross country trek on this bumpy romantic ride.Carrie is a few short weeks away from walking down the aisle when her fiancé calls it off. Shocked and dismayed, Carrie shacks up with her best friend Rowena and finally agrees to her scheme to get out of town on a European road trip involving an ancient VW Camper Van.

    Phillipa Ashley's fourth and latest novel is a chip off the old block: her fans everywhere will love it. `It Should Have Been Me' tells the story of Carrie, battered and bruised by the breakdown of her ten year relationship with solid farmer fiancé Huw, to whom she had been about to be married. Her friend Rowena - fellow stalwart of the local am dram - decides that what she needs is a bracing girls-only road trip in a vintage VW camper van (known to the initiated as a `splitty' after the unusua [...]

    Phillipa Ashley has a fun, lively style to her writing that keeps the tempo moving in her stories, and her characters progressing. I'm always struck by writers who can get me to care about the main character quickly, and I always seem to feel that way with Ashley's heroines. In this case, Carrie could be any woman who has been dumped by her man/fiance. However, her situation seems compounded by feelings of all the time she lost and for being played a fool. It's not as if the relationship fizzled [...]

    Complete and utter chick lit. I'm not a big reader of chick lit, but I do enjoy it every now and then and I did enjoy this book. It was very predictable, but it also contained a few surprises here and there.Set in modern day England, Carrie Brownhill is a local theater actress engaged to her longtime boyfriend Huw. Unfortunately, Huw has other ideas. To get Carrie's mind off her breakup and the despicable thing Huw does, her best friend, Rowena, plans a road trip in her sort-of boyfriend's VW ca [...]

    Well, this one wasn’t that bad, but it wasn’t all that great either. The story premise was good and it’s what hooked me into buying the book. But the story came up short in my opinion. This is the story of Carrie, who in the beginning of the story is just about to become a married woman in just a few weeks time. It is also the story of Matt, a doctor who’s works for a medical charity and has been out working in a remote location and a recent mishap has sent him back home. The two end up [...]

    A typical easy British novel with the expected ending. Not surprising, not compelling, but a good, light read if you need something to pass the time. Carrie gets dumped by her long-time fiancee Huw, only to find out he's marrying someone else. She's about to attempt to destroy the wedding when she runs into Matt, an old friend of Huw's from uni. He talks her out of destruction and later shows up again when Carrie's friend, Rowena, is unable to go on their trip through Europe in a camper van. Of [...]

    This book was billed as Romance, but it read like Chick Lit to me, and I found it very enjoyable as such.It delivers on the premise of a crazy cross-country trip, with a fun main character and a sexy leading guy.Of course, Carrie is on as much of a mental journey as a physical one. I can't say she goes particularly deep on her path to discovery, but it isn't that kind of book. It's the kind where she (and Matt) sleep with other people while not making all that much effort to figure out where the [...]

    I haven't heard of Phillipa Ashley before, but after this book I wouldn't mind reading more of her stuff. I had read it a few years ago but forgot most of the book, so rereading it was interesting. I remembered bits and pieces but very few plot points, which was nice for a reread. I do wonder if it was because I didn't think much of it the first time. It was a bit predictable, but I liked the route it took to get there. I do feel like the first 3/4s of the book was really enjoyable and then the [...]

    I really hate to say this but I'm so dissapointed In this book! My first ever little black dress book that I have been dissapointed in. I can't believe I actually finished it but I was so hoping for something! Which never delivered. There is no connection what so ever in these characters. The book was all over the place. The two main characters basically screw everyone and anything and never is there any sort of connection between the two and then all the sudden they sleep together. I actually t [...]

    I hurt my arm this week and was in lots of pain. Fortunately, I had a copy of It Should Have Been Me close by. I forgot much of my pain when I got into this very delightful book. Although it has the traditional romance plot, Ashley always adds more. In each of her novels I've learned something--about "adventure tours" and the people who plan them, about emergency response teams in the Lake District, and now about classic VW vans. She also perfectly captures setting--in this case Cornwall. But it [...]
