Review of Destination India (The Lonely Hearts Travel Club #2) by Katy Colins

The bit on the back...

Let yourself go…

Starting the Lonely hearts Travel Club was supposed to be the second chance that gave Georgia Green back her life. She thought it would be just like travelling, but the reality is far from rosy as she realises that starting a new business is definitely not a beach!

So when Georgia finds herself on an impromptu work trip to India she knows something’s got to give! Where has the girl gone who fought so hard to rebuild her life?

The land of Bollywood, gorgeous beaches and the Taj Mahal might just hold the key to Georgia finding her stride again… Only she is about to find out that when in India the country calls the shots – not you. But Georgia’s not going down that easy!

This is the second book in Katy Colin's The Lonely Hearts Travel Club series. The series is inspired by her own story and travels. You can read more about Katy's story at her website -

The second instalment follows Georgia to India.

Toward the end of the first instalment - Destination Thailand - the inspiration behind the name of Georgia and Ben's new business was revealed and at the very end of the book the Lonely Hearts Travel Club was launched. Now in this second instalment we get to see how Georgia and Ben's company is doing and this forms the basis for the second story in the series.

The pair have flung themselves into the company and Georgia is continually spreading herself thinner and thinner in an attempt to be on top of everything. After missing one too many nights out with her friends, a reality check from her travelling  friend and a few bottles of bubbly later Georgia books an impromptu, and inconvenient, work trip to India.

Armed with some solo travelling experience and an alias, Georgia sets off and joins one of her very own tours in India. The story follows her time on the tour and just with Destination Thailand Georgia finds herself in some sticky situations. She almost always manages to extract herself from said situations and at times through there are some real laugh out loud moments. One of the great things about Georgia is how down to earth she is. She's relatable which makes it easy to feel a connection with her and her story.

At times I wondered where the story was going to go and right up until the end I was still guessing. Knowing that Georgia's story is inspired by Katy's own travels means that you get a real feel for the places Georgia visits and the stops on the tour through India. From the dust and overbearing heat to the peace and tranquility of the beach you get a real sense of how much of an awe-inspiring India can be. I'm looking forward to the next instalment - Destination Chile!
