Book Review

Sol Searching

Keidi Keating, Director of The Sentinella Network, is celebrating the publication of her first book!

The hilarious Bridget-Jones-esque take on a modern girl’s move to the Costa del Sol is already exceeding sales targets.

What started out as the personal diary of a twenty-three-year-old, who decided to leave the UK for a new life on the sunny Costa del Sol, has turned into a publishing
phenomenon, after her book, Sol Searching was discovered by independent publisher Native Spain.

Keidi Keating, originally from the UK, but now living in the Axarquia region of the Costa del Sol, decided to self-publish her revealing and hilarious dramatised-biography and was quickly discovered by fellow expat, Debbie Jenkins, who was keen to publish the book under her imprint.

Debbie says, “Keidi’s book is a perfect fit for our NativeSpain brand which sets out to inform and entertain expats and would-be expats about the challenges and joys of
making a new life in Spain. What makes Keidi’s book unique is that it also hits a younger audience. It’s a bit like Bridget Jones in the sun!”

Keidi says, “I’ve been writing since I was seven-years-old so landing this publishing contract is a dream come true. The positive feedback it’s been getting has been a real boost too!”

Sol Searching: A Fun-filled tale of a modern girl’s move to the Costa del Sol by Keidi Keating ISBN: 190543068X is available to buy from Amazon and all good bookshops now.


“An enlightening and humorous journey of a determined young lady, with the guts to turn her dream into a reality. I laughed so hard at certain chapters I nearly fell off my chair. I only hope there’ll be a part two.”
Steve Hall,

“Sol Searching is the unusual tale of a young woman battling the odds to create a new life for herself in Spain, whilst setting up a successful new magazine. Brutally honest and engaging, Sol Searching should be read by anyone thinking of moving to a different country.”
Nick Snelling, author of Taking The Heat

“Well done Keidi, your book is great. I couldn’t stop giggling from the time I picked it up till the end of Chapter 24. I love your light-hearted approach and some of your character descriptions. I hope you’ll be writing more books in the future.”
Mandy Rogers

“This is an excellent, read – one I could not put down until I had finished the last page only yesterday. It had me laughing, crying and nodding in agreement throughout. I can
relate well to this book, being a similar age to Keidi and having moved to Singapore on my own to start a new life adventure. Many of the quirky stories I can relate to so
well, as I am sure many other 20 somethings can, whether living in a new country or not! This book has inspired me to continue living out my dreams abroad. Well done Keidi on a book well written. I look forward to reading more in the future.”
