Within the course of a week, marriage expert Natalie Marino is dumped by her husband, receives an urgent call home from her father, and discovers her estranged sister, Lindsay, is pregnant.
A road trip on Route 66 may not help, but it sure couldn’t hurt. Or so Natalie thinks, until Lindsay’s boyfriend starts stalking them. Will their trip down the Mother Road bring the two sisters closer, or turn out to be the biggest wrong turn of their lives?

What a fun read this was! Nothing’s better than a road trip. My brothers girlfriend and I used to take them all the time. We had no idea where we were going, but always…always, had a blast. I’ve never taken a road trip with one of my sisters, but would love to.

This book has emotional pain and family drama, but what it has the most of is humor. This is a VERY funny book!

I’ve traveled Route 66 and reading this brought back some great memories, even though my trip wasn’t as funny as the one Natalie and Lindsay took.

This is the first book I’ve read by Allee, but I’ll be checking out her other books for sure.

As a child, Jennifer Allee lived above a mortuary in the heart of Hollywood, California, which may explain her unique outlook on life. She has written skits, activity pages, and over one hundred contributions to Concordia Publishing House’s popular My Devotions series. Her novels include The Love of His Brother (Five Star, November 2007), The Pastor’s Wife, (Abingdon Press, February 2010), The Mother Road (Abingdon Press, April 2012), and the upcoming A Wild Goose Chase Christmas, book two in the Quilts of Love series (Abingdon Press, November 2012). She’s an active member of American Christian Fiction Writers and Romance Writers of America. Jennifer resides in the grace-filled city of Las Vegas with her husband and teenage son.
