Publisher's Summary

When a struggling journalist meets a runaway princess, will it be the story of the century or the love of a lifetime?

Don't miss this hilarious new addition to the bestselling Americans Abroad series!

Jordan is an American journalist living in London, but when her newspaper is sold to an infamous tabloid king, she has one week to produce a tell-all story of the century or she’s out of a job, and out of the country. Then a runaway princess nearly falls into her lap. It seems like the answer to her prayers, but how can she write an exposé on a woman she’s falling in love with?

Abby was a typical California girl, until a twist of fate turned her into Princess Abigail, the heir to the throne of her father’s kingdom. When presented with an opportunity to escape her royal duties for a night out on the town while on an official state visit to London, she seizes the chance. But when she’s rescued by the woman of her dreams, she begins to doubt that she can ever return to royal life again.

As they have a madcap adventure exploring London together, both Jordan and Abby suspect they may have found their perfect match, but if the secrets they are hiding are exposed, will their relationship survive?

London Holiday is a modern-day fairytale inspired by the classic film Roman Holiday, with a lesbian twist. It is the fifth book in the Americans Abroad series of standalone romantic comedies. Don't miss Waltzing on the Danube, Home for the Holidays, Stockholm Syndrome, and Letters to Cupid for more stories of American women finding love with other women in distant places across the globe!

What a fun story!

I love Stephanie Murphy’s narration of this cute and funny story about a princess and reporter falling in love. Seems far fetched in concept but Miranda does a great job making the story seem entirely possible.

Enjoyable

A story similar to a Roman Holiday with a twist or two. Abby was heir to a small European, while struggling with the regulations and protocol. Wanting freedom if only for a short time, she embarks on that while she was in London. Meeting Jordan brought challenges, fun, and both have secrets.
Good story to enjoy and laugh with Abby and Jordan. Given ARC audio which was good for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

An uplifting romantic comedy

This story was non-stop fun! I loved the way the romance developed between Abby and Jordan it was hilarious and sweet. The London backdrop was full of life and I felt like I was alongside the characters taking in the sights. The audiobook format enhanced the storytelling with the narrator's soothing voice and entertaining accents. I'll definitely be revisiting Miranda MacLeod's 'London Holiday' in the future.

Sweet

This is a funny, sweet and romantic story, a modern fairy take . Well written and narrated. I recommend Miranda Macleod books, a mix of romance and laughter, light and refreshing like rain in the desert. I definitely recommend it.

Beautiful romance

What I like of Miranda’s style is the fluidity for romantic comedy. It is always a treat and a great way to spend a good time, having a very gratifying reading. She never fails to put a smile on my face. This one is the fifth instalment of the Americans abroad series and it is inspired in the movie “Roman Holiday”.

It is a very beautiful, sweet story. Has very lovable characters with a glimmering chemistry and growing attraction. The description of the places they visit is very detailed and delightful, like being there. I enjoyed it very much and their misadventures made me laugh so much.

It’s a light and funny comedy, a real cute story. I loved the growth of the main characters, and the build-up of the romance. It is undoubtedly a wonderful fairy tale.

It is a very enjoyable book that I’d like to recommend.

It is narrated by Stephanie Murphy and she is the amazing. The way she brings the characters to life is so well done.

Copy right?

This was almost word to word “Rome Vacation” but in London, I loved it, and the fact that it was a lesbian story was even better... sweet, well written but plot was well known...
Narration was excellent as usual.

Adventure, Surprise, and Romance!

London Holiday: Americans Abroad, Book 5 by Miranda MacLeod, narrated by Stephanie Murphy is an entertaining and engaging romantic comedy that's full of adventure, surprise, and light-hearted fun. This is the first book I've listened to in the Amercians Abroad series, so I wasn't sure what to expect, mainly because I've never read a book about two lesbians who have a romantic interest in one another. I was pleasantly surprised! I'm so happy I decided to add this one to my library because I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it. I love to travel, which is why I was originally drawn to this book. Needless to say, I loved exploring and learning about places I've never been before, alongside these two....and never once did they make me feel like a 3rd wheel. Hehee! Really, though, it is very well-written; the dialogue is excellent and the details are descriptive. Because I stayed smiling and laughing throughout, I definitely plan to check out the rest of the series!

This was also my first time listening to narrator Stephanie Murphy. I thought her performance was awesome, and she made my overall experience that much better. So much, in fact, that I forgot I was listening to a narrator tell the story! Isn't that the best?! She brought the events and characters to life and made me feel like I was part of the story. I loved it!

Overall, London Holiday: Americans Abroad, Book 5 by Miranda MacLeod, narrated by Stephanie Murphy gets a well-deserved 5/5 stars! I recommend this audiobook to those looking for a light and sweet romantic comedy, filled with adventure, laughs, and lots of fun.

Thank you for reading my review. I hope it was helpful. Happy listening! :-)

Another cute and fluffy love story :)

One of the things I like most about Miranda's books is that they're guaranteed to be a safe space... the conflicts matter to the characters, but the stories are always light and the outcome is never in doubt (I mean, they're romances so the outcome is never *really* in doubt, but... :)). Sometimes you just want a light, fun love story, and Miranda always delivers.
