Road Trips

Four recent novels featuring road trips...

Driving With the Top Down
by Beth Harbison"Three women, two weeks, one truck: sometimes life doesn't take you in the direction you expect... Dara, savvy in business but not so savvy in love, has unexpectedly found success running a monthly tag sale after losing her job and inheriting her uncle's farmette in Maryland. Colleen, feeling under-appreciated and in a rut with her husband and kids, rents a stall at Dara's tag sale, and now the two women are embarking on a two-week antiquing/thrift shopping road trip. However, things take an unexpected turn when they meet Jonnie and offer her a ride with them to Florida. But they soon learn Jonnie has been hiding a few key facts: Jonnie has poisoned her abusive husband, and now she's on the run."

The Sky Beneath My Feet
by Lisa Samson
"Being married to a saint isn't what it's cracked up to be. Rick has holed up alone in the backyard shed. Maybe he's immersing himself in prayer. Maybe he's lost his mind. But while 'St. Rick' waits for an epiphany, Beth will have to figure out what to do with herself and their teenage sons, possibly for the rest of her life. When their son is caught with drugs, Beth embarks on an ambitious road trip that turns into something nearly surreal."

The Good Luck of Right Now : a novel
by Matthew Quick"Struggling with how to live on his own after the death of his mother, Bartholomew Neil discovers a "Free Tibet" letter from Richard Gere that inspires him to write a series of soul-baring letters about everything from philosophy to cat telepathy and set off on a road trip to Canada with some misfit friends in search of the Cat Parliament and his biological father."

Helen & Troy's Epic Road Quest
by A. Lee Martinez" On a road trip across an enchanted America, Helen and Troy will discover all this and more. If the curse placed upon them by an ancient god doesn't kill them or the pack of reluctant orc assassins don't catch up to them, Helen and Troy might reach the end their journey in one piece, where they might just end up destroying the world. Or at least a state or two. A minotaur girl, an all-American boy, a three-legged dog, and a classic car are on the road to adventure, where every exit leads to adventure."
