Publisher's Summary

In the middle of the year, in the middle of her life, Bethanne Hamlin takes a road trip with her daughter Annie, and her former mother-in-law, Ruth. They’re driving to Florida for Ruth’s 50th high school reunion. A long-time widow, Ruth would like to reconnect with Royce, the love of her teenage life. She’s heard he’s alone, too…and, well, she’s curious. Maybe even hopeful. Bethanne herself needs time to reflect, to ponder a decision she has to make. Her ex-husband, Grant – her children’s father – wants to reconcile now that his second marriage has failed. Bethanne’s considering it….

Meanwhile, Annie’s out to prove to her one-time boyfriend that she can live a brilliant life without him! So there they are, three women driving across America. They have their maps and their directions – but even the best-planned journey can take you to a turn in the road.

    "Predictable"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Normally I enjoy Macomber. I listen to books while at work and find her books relaxing and entertaining. I especially love the characters in this series. They feel familiar, almost like family. But like family they are becoming predictable.


    Has A Turn in the Road turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Possibly. It's ALWAYS love, lose, love again even better than the first time. Does that really happen?


    What aspect of Joyce Bean’s performance would you have changed?

    I thought Joyce Beans performance was good. It's made it curious as to how these books are done. Does the reader do all the characters at was and then the editor put them together? The character voices are always spot on. You know...John always sounds like John and Grandma always sounds like Grandma.

    Story
    "Parts are really good"

    I too rolled my eyes quite a bit during this book. It is stated several times that it takes a big man to admit when he is wrong. No it takes a person willing to take responsibility for their actions to admit when they are wrong. Anyone in touch with reality knows no one is perfect including themselves.

    The storyline over all is good but this book did not linger with me as it did others who wrote reviews. Bethann is really great character and made the book enjoyable. The way the author explained the characters points of view was insightful and interesting at times.

    Happy reading (or rather listening)! :)

    "Superficial"

    There is absolutely nothing interesting about this book. I plan on finishing it, and give it 2 stars because it's easy to listen to. It is mindless however, so if you are looking for a stimulating book which challenges you mentally or emotionally- I wouldn't suggest this book. The underlying premise of this story is that for every woman, there is a man to complete her. I rolled my eyes a LOT while listening to this book.
