Book Review & #Giveaway: Live to Fly Another Day by Eliza Watson

by Aleen @ Lampshade Reader

It’s hard to pass up a Caity Shaw story. Her travel mishaps are very relatable and that’s why I fell in love with the character. In Live to Fly Another Day, Caity focuses on family and her genealogy research.

Live to Fly Another Day

live to fly another day

It’s always a delight to read about Caity’s adventures (or rather misadventures). Something is always going negative but in such a funny way that you can’t help but giggle at her expense.

I really enjoyed her dog Mac. Let’s just say he brings out her certain tendencies to act just like her mom, much to her chagrin of course. It was truly entertaining. Caity’s and Declan’s relationship grows even more and he, as a character is growing on me as well. He’s just so darn sweet.

Caity’s side project of researching into her family history builds in this installment. Her long lost uncle Geroge plays a crucial role in this and I gotta say I wanted to bop him over the head towards the end of the story. So glad that was a fleeting feeling though…

Caity doesn’t travel as much in this one, but I loved the planning that went into saving George’s estate and the various side characters were also fun. Enid, Fanny, and Thomas all are great additions. (Well, Enid is a slag 😉 ). I loved learning that new insult, going to definitely use it more in conversations!

I feel like with each book I become more endeared to the characters and their ups and downs. Caity’s is like a roller coaster that I hope doesn’t end soon.

Pick this series up if you love family drama, klutzy heroines, rambunctious puppies, hot Irish men, and characters that you just want to bop on the head ;).

What’s a girl to do when her dreams go down the loo?

Caity Shaw has finally found her place in the world when she moves to her grandmother’s homeland, Ireland. A new full-time event planner job, a steady paycheck, and less travel are providing her a more stable and balanced lifestyle. She is able to focus on nurturing her relationships with family, friends, and Declan—who has taught her to once again believe in love and herself.

Caity’s lack of meeting planning experience and having to run off to England to visit an ill newfound rellie soon jeopardize her job. And when she uncovers this rellie’s mysterious life, her entire family must come to his aid and Caity’s personal life turns upside down. Despite her growing client list and passion for genealogy research, Caity feels inept after she fails to trace even one of her clients’ ancestry lines. Then Caity faces her biggest research challenge to date. She’s unable to locate her grandmother’s birth record. Without it, Caity will not be able to obtain citizenship and remain in Ireland.

If she is forced to leave Ireland, she fears she’ll lose everything she’s worked so hard to attain—her sense of identity, direction, and belonging, and most importantly, her relationship with Declan.

Thanks so much for the wonderful review and being a Caity fan, Aleen!

I love when characters become more endearing over the course of a series. And being a dog lover, I love how Mac gets his time in the spotlight 🙂 This sounds like a fun read!

I left my shoe bag at home and had to walk around in a desert climate in a pair of boots. Thanks for the giveaway. I saw this post in the Wednesday, Jun. 26, 2019 edition of The BookTube Your Shelf Daily Reader.

Bringing the wrong clothes is the only mishap I can think of.

I think the travel mishaps I’ve had have been clothing related–forgot to bring dress shoes for the formal theater trip and my swim suit top broke.
