  • Travel adventure + love triangle🔺

    Travel, food, clothes and some romance, with a little Sydney thrown in🌏 3.5-4🌟stars After reading Sandy Barker's That Night in Paris I was enthusiastic about travelling Down Under with Sarah, the older sister mentioned frequently in Cat's romantic jaunt around Europe. I was surprised and a bit disappointed that Australia did not feature more prominently in this book. London, Hawaii and New Zealand's South Island are great locations and Barker goes to some lengths to include sight-seeing with great dining and scenic excursions in all three. Sydney is Sarah's home base and she does have some superb dates there with her two beaux but in view of the title I was expecting more of the book to be set in Australia. I just finished a very emotion-packed novel before starting A Sunset in Sydney, so that influenced my take on this book. I felt it had lots of details about her travel, makeup, clothing and food choices, and it kept moving, but through most of the book it did not dig all that deep. Sarah acted much younger than her age and I did not like the way she dealt with her love triangle. The ubiquitous drinking was also a bit of a turnoff for me: just too excessive and it often took over and kept delaying the important discussions. The last part of the novel was much better than the beginning and I liked the choices Sarah finally made. By the climax I was reassessing some of my negative impressions of Sarah for the better, but I preferred her sister's story in That Night in Paris. I now wish I had read One Summer in Santorini, Sarah's Greek holiday book that starts the series, before reading this one. Getting the fuller picture of Sarah, James and Josh's backstory might have made Sarah a more sympathetic character and her indecision about the guys more understandable. Thanks to publishers Harper Collins/One More Chapter and NetGalley for providing an advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.

  • Sweet Love Triangle

    I must begin by saying that the love triangle trope is my least favorite. That being said, this book was charming, engaging, and a worthwhile light summer beach read! Sarah is faced with two amazing relationship choices: a slightly older millionaire who is falling for her and wants to show her the world, or a slightly younger "vacationship" with whom she is completely herself. The best relationship, though, is the one she has with her sister and friends, who are there to support her though it all. Underneath it all is a message of hope and the strength a woman has to make the difficult choices that are best for herself. Advanced reader copy provided by #NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

  • So disappointing

    I DNF this book at 20%, it just wasn’t for me. I found that the story started at a very random time, after Sarah gets back from a trip where she had romantic entanglements with two different guys, both who live somewhere different from where she does. I didn’t think the characters or the backstory were flushed out enough, everything seemed very up in the air. The men seemed to be described as perfect and I had no idea where the story was going. Sarah spends the first part of the story, from what I read, with James, who was super cheesy and cringey. I have no idea where the other guy fits in. I didn’t find the characters or plot over likeable or relatable. The humour wasn’t funny. I hope someone else enjoys it more! Thanks to NetGalley for this free preview in exchange for an honest review.

  • A joy to read

    I loved A Sunset in Sydney, the characters are engaging and the flow is perfect. It's a cruel world where you've sworn of men and then two come at once, both holiday romances and both with the potential for something more. Sarah's conflict is evident from the very beginning as is her humour via her internal monologue making this 5 star story a joy to read. My thanks to the author, #OneMoreChapter and #Netgalley for giving me the opportunity to read and review #ASunsetInSydney
