When Mel’s partner gets shot in front of her, she turns to her new friend Regan, who welcomes her with open arms and suggests an old fashioned American road trip to help Mel sort out what she wants out of life.
Doesn’t that sound like a horrible idea? These two are barely dating and decide to take off together on a very long road trip while dealing with some rather impressive insecurities and baggage. It really should be a bad idea. And it should really bother me that they get together so quickly, as that usually drives me batty in other books. Somehow, the relationship in this book comes across as sweet instead of clingy, and O’Brien does such a good job of letting us in, that you really do want this couple to work.
