The Travel Truth (The Travel Auction Adventures Book 3) by Mark David Green
It was supposed to be the trip of a lifetime. But when Jonathan Cork discovers his girlfriend in a compromising position with the local plumber, he’s left with a broken heart, serious debts and a spare ticket in the name of Kate Thornley. Unable to change the name on the spare ticket and fast running out of time, Jonathan decides to take desperate measures. He advertises on social media for a travel companion with the same name as his ex. But Jonathan has no idea what he’s letting himself in for – certainly not a gorgeous nurse with a feisty attitude and plenty of her own baggage, a superman costume and a very determined camera crew… What follows is a funny, page-turning, rollercoaster ride around South America. (Book 1 - The Travel Auction) Book 3 - The Travel Truth Angel and JC return home to a frenzy of worldwide publicity, putting their fledgling romance under an intense media spotlight that threatens to destroy their feelings for each other. Meanwhile, Madge and Bozzer have baggage of their own to reclaim, which could have serious implications for their infamous eBay buddies. Whilst Bozzer’s camera never lies, cries or sighs, the four friends soon discover that people often pry, lie and say goodbye …
About Mark David Green
Mark David Green is the writer of The Travel Auction series of books. He lives with his wife in Poole, on the UK's south coast. They spend much of their time aboard their small sailing boat, either port-hopping or at anchor, enjoying the freedom of a life less complicated.
Mark spends his writing time wedged in the boat's tiny forward cabin - the smallest, most magical study in the world. If he could have one dream come true, it would be to see his first book adapted into a big screen romantic comedy.
Travel Truth (Generation Destination Book 3), by Mark David Green, continues where Travel Mate left off. Maddie is completing her recovery from a car accident in a Buenos Aires hospital at the mercy of the nefarious Simon Black, but under the protective eye of Bozzer, Madge’s Australian boyfriend. Meanwhile, Angel and JC are en-route back to the UK after their apparently indecent exposure in Brazil. However, their shameful behaviour leads on to shameless behaviour, on their journey home, and on their return.
As with the previous two books there is a lot going on in this story, which is about relationships, trust, treachery, and near-death experiences.
Fast-paced as ever, with characters to care about and characters to hate, comedy, thrills and spills, what’s not to like.
If you haven’t read the previous books, it would be good to start from book one and read them in sequence, to enhance what is a completely entertaining chunk of escapism, in the aftermath of travel restrictive times for us all.
