ONE FOR THE ROAD
Rating: 4 Cups
D’Anne is at the end of her rope. Her husband of twenty-five years has just died and left her broke. There is a suspicion that he committed suicide with a combination of Viagra and heart medication, and her best friend seems to think that he has a lot of money hidden somewhere. Dee cannot find it, and she needs to get back to California.
Tyler is determined to make a comeback in country music. He had a hit several years before and his life was good until bad luck, bad women, and booze turned his life into a country song. He has a new band and gigs lined up, and now he needs transportation.
A new widow finances her trip back home by chauffeuring a country band west in her luxury RV. She and the band learn much about life and love along the way.
I was very pleasantly surprised by this story. The blurb does not do it justice. The story is well written with vivid and lively characters and an awesome love story. The two main characters have been battered by life and are wary of taking a chance on love again. The author does a magnificent job of describing life in an RV with four very different musicians and a dog. The side plot of the mystery of the missing money really keeps things moving and the love story is excellent. I loved the band members and Marlene the trailer park owner. Bear’s trivia, J.T.’s love life, and RB’s pompadour are all great, but the best parts are always the interactions between D’Anne and Tyler, two people with enough experience to know something special when they find it. This is a great love story with a fun mystery thrown in.
