Road trips bring summer romances | News, Sports, Jobs
A road trip and a movie shoot bring sweet romance to new fiction.
A road trip to a wedding brings exes back close and a chance to rekindle things in “The road trip” by Beth O’Leary.
Addie is on her way to a wedding in Scotland and the trip has barely begun when her car is hit by another – driven by her ex Dylan on her way to the same wedding. They haven’t seen each other since their abrupt breakup two years ago, and it goes without saying that it’s not a great way to meet again. Dylan and his best friend are now dating and Addie feels like she has no choice but to invite them over. With a long journey ahead and crowded spaces, Addie and Dylan have no choice but to face each other – and their pasts. But at the end of the road, a second chance will await them. Or will they even succeed?
A lovely ex story and the new start of a road trip, it’s a great summer read that will make readers want to jump in the car.
“The road trip” is published by Berkley.
Best-selling author Beth Wiseman continues her Amish Inn series with “An unlikely match.”
When a production company filming scenes for a movie in a nearby area descends into the tiny Peony Inn run by Esther and Lizzie, the Amish sisters may have bit more than they can chew. Not only are there a lot of people swarming in the quiet place, but they’ve also brought noisy generators which annoy the already cranky Gus, who rents a small house on their property. The only bright spot is Jayce, the son of the man who directs the film, who seems to enjoy the solitude of life on an Amish farm, and quickly befriends Evelyn Schrock. Although they come from two different worlds, it seems that love is blossoming. Can there be a possible future for them?
All of the characters are very likeable, and the reader will want to see a happy ending with Jayce and Evelyn. The side story about Gus, Esther, and Lizzie is also interesting. It’s a well-written series that will attract a lot of fans.
“An improbable match” is edited by Zondervan.
