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.

Listener Opinions

    " This isn't one of my favorite Debbie Macomber or Blossom Street stories. The premise had a lot of promise but I feel like it didn't reach its potential. I didn't find Annie to be a likable character - I wanted to slap her a few times. I was hoping the story would be more about the road trip, instead it was more about Bethanne and "the biker," and the few towns they stopped out - Vegas and Branson - prior to getting to Florida. Ruth's romance was predictable but sweet. Annie's romance was running parallel to Bethanne's but was too selfish and immature to notice until the end. I was never able to be sympathetic toward Grant's character. There was the inevitable HEA, that was nice. "

    " Meh. It is what it is, I guess: An easy read that doesn't have many surprises. It was nice to sit out at the pool and read... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeanette | 1/11/2014

    " This was a fun book to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joan Bolen | 1/9/2014

    " another great addition to the blossom street series. bethanne has to decide whether to reconcile with her exhusband grant. he regrets leaving his family for the "lovely tiffany" as his daughter annie calls her. grants mother ruth decides to drive to florida for her 50th reunion. bethanne decides to go with her to think about her decision. along the way theyre rescued by 2 bikers when their car breaks down. max follows them along the way. he and bethanne fall for each other. a little predictable but i still loved it. hoping for more in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaxmarie | 12/16/2013

    " Love the series. This book had several story lines going, and it wasn't as smooth reading but still love it. I'd say this is more like a 3.6 for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ivy | 12/8/2013

    " This Blosssom Street book kept me guessing to the end. Debbie Macomber is total brain candy and ususally fairly predictable, but certainly enjoyable. This may be one of the better books in the series. It makes you want to go on a road trip with people you love and see where fate will lead. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 11/30/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherry Grussing | 11/26/2013

    " Kept mentally shouting, "Leopards don't change their spots!!!" all throught the book. Happy with the ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sally Knotwell | 11/9/2013

    " Another wonderful book from Debbie Macomber. I hesitated reading this one for some reason..didn't feel compelled to grab it when it first came out. But it was a lovely story. I kept being torn between Grant and Max, just as Bethanne was. Debbie kept me wondering up to the very last. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kathryn Drury | 8/22/2011

    " painfully predictable and very repetitive to the point of being annoying "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Danielle | 8/15/2011

    " No girl in their right mind would feel sorry for the ending of her ex husbands marriage to his mistress....I can go on and on.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda Sauer | 7/5/2011

    " just read it as a summer read...and it was just that! might even have given it a 3.5 rating. I have read the other blossom street books, but you don't have to have read any others in the series since they always seem to be about different times in the character's lives and take on new characters. "
