Where did it come from? Many thanks to Tracee at Pump up Your Book for sending me a copy of this book to read.
How long has it been on my TBR pile? Since 23 April 2012
Why do I have it? I enjoy Christian Fiction that has a suspenseful plot and Jennifer AlLee is a new author for me.

Within a week, best-selling author and marriage expert, Natalie Marino is dumped by her husband, receives a desperate phone call from her father and discovers that her estranged sister, Lindsay, is pregnant. A trip down Route 66 to visit their parents, may not be the most ideal bonding experience for the sisters, but it surely couldn't hurt either of them. Or so Natalie thinks, until their car and belongings are stolen and Lindsay's boyfriend begins to stalk them.

Will their trip down The Mother Road bring the sisters closer together, or will their next destination turn out ultimately to be their last? I truly enjoyed this book and found it to be very suspenseful but ultimately uplifting. It definitely struck a chord within me, as I have recently discovered that two close relatives are suffering from the beginnings of Alzheimer's Disease and dementia. I cried throughout this novel but I loved it! I give this book an A!

A! - (90-95%)

May you read well and often
