She’s starting life again… with new friends and plenty of men.

Divorced from her high-school sweetheart at twenty-seven, Laura Baker finds herself single for the first time in her adult life, her now-gay ex-husband the only man she’s ever slept with.

Looking for a fresh start, Laura moves into an apartment on Sydney’s Northern Beaches where her two new eclectic roommates convince her that she needs to get herself out there and start dating (and sleeping with) as many men as possible.

But as Laura’s fun new lifestyle kicks off, her work ethic begins to slip. Her mum won’t stop pestering her about her biological clock and trying to set her up with Eric from the pub. And to make things even worse, the volleyball-playing guy with the sky-blue eyes and rippling muscles that Laura has become infatuated with is hiding a secret that could shatter her world.

Amidst all the change in her life, Laura is forced to confront one crucial question: does she even know who she is anymore or how to be happy?



One of the things I love about reading, is going in blind, not really knowing anything about the book before reading it. Laura The Explorer surprised me! It was such a fun, light hearted and hilarious read.

I loved Laura, being 27 and going through a divorce, learning how to start over and experience life in a way that many of us, experience without a second thought.

Ben and Kalina are such a huge part of this story as a whole, even though they are more surrounding characters, they really helped make the book shine.

Some parts of the book were just straight up hilarious and had me laughing out loud, especially the night of and night after stories 😉

For a debut novel, Sarah really knocked it out of the park and I can’t wait to read more of her work in the future.

*A very big thank you to the author, Sarah Begg, for reaching out and providing me a copy of her book!

Until next time, happy reading!
