In the middle of the year, in the middle of her life, Bethanne Hamlin takes a road trip with her daughter, Annie, and her former mother-in-law, Ruth. They're driving to Florida for Ruth's 50th high-school reunion. A longtime widow, Ruth would like to reconnect with Royce, the love of her teenage life. She's heard he's alone, too...and, well, she's curious. Maybe even hopeful.Bethanne herself needs time to reflect, to ponder a decision she has to make. Her ex-husband, Grant - her children's father - wants to reconcile now that his second marriage has failed. Bethanne's considering it....

Meanwhile, Annie's out to prove to her onetime boyfriend that she can live a brilliant life without him!

So there they are, three women driving across America. They have their maps and their directions - but even the best-planned journey can take you to a turn in the road. Or lead you to an unexpected encounter - like the day Bethanne meets a man named Max who really is a hero on a Harley. That's when Bethanne's decision becomes a lot harder. Because Grant wants her back, but now there's Max....

From Seattle's Blossom Street to the other end of the country, this is a trip that could change three women's lives.

    " The main character Bethanne is a divorced women who reinvented herself. Her husband of twenty years told her he loved someone else. He later married the women. Bethanne started her own company and was doing well. Both of her kids loved their father. The girl, Annie was totally loyal to the father and hoped that her mom and dad would get back together. The ex grandmother plans a trip for Washington state to Florida for a class reunion. On the spur of the moment Bethanne agrees to go with her to help sort out her feelings for her ex husband. Annie gets hurt by her current boyfriend so she decides to go along too on the trip. They run into car trouble, stop to help out an old friend of the grandmothers and learn about themselves and each other. It was a cute book. I stayed up to finish. Who do you choose the exhusband who betrayed you, but swears he won't do it again or the new man you don't know much about but who stirs your soul? It was a good book to help with the stress of real life. "

    " What a great book. I love this series and have already started the newest book. I love it that all of the books revisit characters and then you meet new ones. "

    " Excellent novel about infidelity and how it affects the whole family. Author did a great job handling a serious event with humor. Kept me guessing for a while. "

    " I have enjoyed all the other Blossom Street books but not this one. The characters are annoying and the story with the bikers is just too unbelievable. I'm about 200 pages in and just can't go on. "

    " easy summer fluff! "

    " Bethanne and her daughter Annie decided to accompany Ruth,Bethanne's ex-mother-in-law, on a trip from their home in Seattle to Ruth's high school reunion in Florida. Throughout the entire trip, Annie and Bethanne's ex-husband, Grant, work to convince Bethanne to reconcile with Grant. Bethanne has built a new life since Grant broke her heart six years ago when he left her to marry a younger woman, who he has now divorced. I enjoyed the story lines about Annie's broken romance,Ruth's journey to reconnect to a childhood sweetheart, and the chance encounter that led to a new romance for Bethanne. However, if I were Bethanne, I would have blocked Grant's phone number on my cell phone and thrown Annie out of the car because it seemed like they spent the entire cross-country trip hounding her to get back together with Grant. I realize that Macomber needed some repetition to build the suspense, but it seemed overdone and was boring at times. "

    " I found this second installment with the characters better than the first and enjoyed the concept of three generations on the road trip together. Having gone through a divorce, I was glad to see the Bethanne had the sense to know that you have to move forward, not backward! "
