Changing Lanes: A Novel | [Kathleen Long]

Changing Lanes: A Novel

Abby Halladay has the perfect life. Or, rather, she will…as long as everything goes exactly according to plan. Abby never leaves anything to chance — not her job as a syndicated columnist, not her engagement to her fiancé, Fred, and certainly not her impending wedding in Paris (New Jersey, that is).Unfortunately for Abby, even the best-laid plans often go awry — like when Fred runs away to Paris (France, that is), her column is canned, and her dream home is diagnosed with termites. Forced to move back in with her parents and drive her dad’s cab, Abby’s perfect life has now officially become the perfect disaster. Then a funny thing happens. Slowly but surely, Abby begins letting go of her dreams of perfection. As she does, the messy, imperfect life she thought she never wanted starts to feel exactly like the one she needs. Poignant and heartfelt, Changing Lanes celebrates the unexpected joys of everyday life — and the enduring promise of second chances.

    "It wasn't bad but wasn't great..."
    Would you try another book from Kathleen Long and/or Tanya Eby?

    I would.


    If you’ve listened to books by Kathleen Long before, how does this one compare?

    I haven't but again I would try to listen to another.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes.


    Did Changing Lanes inspire you to do anything?

    I do think it was somewhat inspiring. Nothing seemed to go well for the character and I thought that was very realistic.

    Story
    "Read like a dull lecture"
    Would you try another book from Kathleen Long and/or Tanya Eby?

    I wouldn't try another Kathleen Long book, but might listen to Tanya Eby again.


    Has Changing Lanes turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    This book left me annoyed. The know-it-all heroine simply meandered through the book thinking about and spouting off what was best for the other characters' lives. Did absolutely nothing to move the story forward or fix her own life. Again, annoying!
