Review of Mates, Dates and Great Escapes

Title: Mates, Dates and Great Escapes
Author: Cathy Hopkins
Series: Mates, Dates

A school trip to Florence seems like the perfect escape for Lucy. She wants time away from Tony who is pressurising her to take their relationship further. In Italy she meets an American boy, who is also visiting Tuscany, and she thinks he might be the ideal way to get over Tony. He seems to be the perfect gentlemen, and Italy introduces Lucy to a world of culture and sophistication.

Will she be able to move on from Tony? Or is it a case of out of the frying pan and into the fire?

My Review:

This is book nine in the Mates and Dates which I love!!! It's all about 4 best friends - Lucy, Nesta, TJ and Izzie - who are mates that have dates, hence the title of the series Mates, Dates.

Lucy and Tony have been going out for a while but as Tony is 4 years older wants to take their relationship further (if you know what I mean), he's pressurising Lucy and she doesn't know what to do. A school trip to Florence seems like the perfect break but Lucy's family don't have the money, until Lucy's older brother, Lal, has to see Mrs Finkelstein's solicitor, he thinks he's done something wrong but he hasn't! I'm not going to give away what it is but it results in Lucy being able to go to Florence after all - which she's thrilled about! 

Lucy, Nesta, TJ and Izzie have a lot of good adventures which I'm not going to reveal. Lucy meets Teddy who's really sweet and they have a little holiday romance. Not going to reveal anything else, if you like the sound of this book then give it a try! 

Fab book! Love the series! Only thing is you might wanna start at the first book in the series as different things over lap in the books, but the series is a DEFINITE holiday must read!
