Bea has barely been scraping by since her husband died. After falling for a telephone scam, she loses everything and is forced to abandon her trailer. With only two-thirds of a tank in her old van, she heads toward the Pacific Ocean with her cat - on a mission to reclaim what's rightfully hers, even if it means making others pay for what she lost.

This book has very well developed characters who are deep, flawed and interesting. I can’t stop think about this book. Also the Narration is excellent.

The story was fine until one of the characters talks about wanting to participate with Doctors Without Borders. The character asked if her job will give her time off to help, she is told her nurses union contract gives her two weeks off to help with disasters. The character then goes on to bash unions saying she wouldn't belong unless the state she lived in required it. How did union bashing belong in this storyline? Especially since the character was able to participate in something good because of her union. I worked at the nations largest retailer full time and didn't buy a single piece of clothing for over a year, ate bread covered in instant packet gravy to survive. I qualified for welfare but was to proud to apply for it. I lived in poverty until I got a union job. No need at all to bash.

This has been my favorite audiobook so far. Wonderful story of redemption. You won't regret listening to this story. Voices in audio are great story tellers.

Sadie Turner is not a control freak, just…orderly. When a cheating spouse topples Sadie’s impeccably tidy world, she packs up her kids for a summer vacation at her aunt’s lake house, hoping to relax, reboot, and pick up the pieces away from men. All men. But eccentric Aunt Dody has other plans: she’s determined to see Sadie have a little fun - with Desmond, the sexy new neighbor. Tall, tanned, muscular - and even great with her kids - Desmond is Sadie’s worst nightmare. He must have a flaw - he’s a man, after all - so Sadie vows to keep her distance. But as summer blazes on, their attraction ignites....

The lead character wasn't all that likable and the readers voice when she did the aunt character was really annoying. It wasn't a horrible book but not that great either. I would not recommend this book.
