Tessa Wilson’s life is all over the map. She may be clumsy, but this time she’s stumbled into a pickle by choice, not by accident. She’s agreed to take a month-long trip around Texas jammed into a ’59 Cadillac with a drama-loving teenager, two elderly spitfires, and—oh, yes—her biological mama who gave her away at birth. And the ride gets even crazier when hot-as-sin cowboy Branch Thomas crosses into her lane. They don’t call him the sexiest man in the Lone Star State for nothin’.
As the miles pass and sparks fly between Tessa and Branch, her grandmother starts dropping hints about family wedding traditions. And as Tessa discovers the power of her budding friendships and the unbreakable strength of her newfound family of strong Texas women, she wonders if she’s also on the road to the biggest adventure of all: true love.
By the end of this book, I was crying like a baby, a definite sign of a good romance book, at least for me. Usually in a book I have a couple of favorite characters, but I really enjoyed each one in this book for different reasons.
Tessa grows a lot in this book, and she’s not afraid to fall in love. Frankie and Ivy have the kind of female friendship I strive for, and I hope when I’m old and it’s near the end of my time, I can still be as courageous and feisty as those two. Lola has a hard exterior, but is full of love (reminds me of myself), while Melody has some great zingers and shows so much potential to grow up to be a wonderful person.
If you are looking for a book that will make you laugh and cry, all while reminding you that life is short, but full of wonderful adventures, then look no farther.
