By Jo Watson

'I'm kicking myself for not reading this book sooner!' Goodreads reviewer
We promise this romcom will make you laugh out loud! Again and again and again. Perfect for fans of Lucy Vine's HOT MESS, Jenny Oliver's THE SUMMER HOUSE BY THE SEA, Holly Martin's SUMMER AT BUTTERCUP BEACH and Fiona Gibson's THE WOMAN WHO MET HER MATCH.
Chase your dreams. Dance under the stars. Fall in love at the festival of Burning Moon.
WARNING: Being jilted at the altar in front of 500 wedding guests can lead to irrational behaviour, such as going on your honeymoon to Thailand alone.
On the way to paradise, symptoms may include getting arrested, setting yourself on fire, turning up on a 'Missing Poster' and going viral.
Side-effects may include desert island stranding, star gazing and jungle trekking.
Recovery will lead to partying the night away at Burning Moon festival - and falling in love with the person you least expect...
For more hilarious, romantic hijinks, look out for Jo's other unmissable rom-coms, Almost A Bride and Finding You.
