Publisher's Summary

In this heartwarming story of hope and second chances, Emma and Mel are about to discover that sometimes life is about the journey, not the destination…

Classic forgetful Emma—she’s done it again, this time accidentally ruining a Valentine’s Day surprise for her best friend Mel. Desperate to make up for it, she promises Mel a birthday trip to Edinburgh—a girls’ weekend to end all girls’ weekends. There’s just one massive hitch…

Emma has already promised her grandma that she’ll go on a coach trip with her to scatter her grandad’s ashes…In Edinburgh. On Mel’s birthday weekend. Oh God.

That’s right, with one innocent but inevitable diary clash, two very different road trips are thrust together. Surrounded by a bunch of septuagenarians who seem to have forgotten how to have fun, can Emma support Grandma through her grief and give Mel a birthday to remember? Or is their friendship doomed to become roadkill? She’s about to find out…

Critic Reviews

“Listening to Imogen Church narrate this story is an opportunity to spend a week on a guided bus tour up the coast of Scotland to Edinburgh. Listeners will also learn some history and connect with a dozen or so relatable characters.… Church adeptly portrays each character with subtle inflections to make it clear who's who.”AudioFile Magazine

The Coach Trip

A delightful story with unexpected, life-changing consequences.
Highly recommended for it’s social commentary on how we make erroneous judgments about people and a gentle encouragement to examine and perhaps change our assumptions.
Beautifully read with great sensitivity and humour.
