Publisher's summary

From USA Today best-selling Author Devney Perry comes a small town, second chance romance. 

Clara Saint-James is completing a journey started by an old friend. She’ll return a Cadillac to California, a place she’s avoided for more than a decade. But it’s time for closure and to put old ghosts to rest. And it’s time to find out if the feelings she’s cherished for the boy from her past are just fanciful memories - or if there’s a chance they are real. 

Timing was never on her side, especially when it came to Karson Avery. The two of them lived in a junkyard as runaway teens, and though she wanted more than his friendship, he always belonged to another - until that one night when he was hers. 

When Clara finds Karson living in a small, coastal town, she’s not surprised the beautiful boy from her past grew into a stunning man. His smile is as captivating as ever. His eyes have the same roguish glint. But timing is still working against her. 

Clara must decide how far she’s willing to go to battle for Karson’s heart. Or if it’s time to let him go and surrender to the dotted lines that have always kept them apart.

Great ending to the series

Finally!!! I was ecstatic to finally meet Karsen and not just hear about him! Clara was also interesting because I love single parent stories and I knew Devney Perry would give me a good one.

I can admit I didn’t see the last book in this series containing two of the teens from the junkyard. If you’re unfamiliar with this series The Runaway series is about six teens that run away from their homes for different reasons and find a safe place within a junkyard while also building a family of sorts. The previous books contained one of the teens from the junkyard as they drive across the country in the Cadillac that once was the home of the leader and protector Karsen.

Karsen was everything I pictured him being. Teddy Hamilton’s narration was spot on, his voice was exactly how I visualized Karsen’s. Ava Erickson narrated Clara expertly as well as Clara’s son.

This was my favorite book in the series, the epilogue wrapped everything up in a perfect bow! I advise everyone to take the journey with these characters as they battle past demons and find love in the most unlikely places.

PERFECT Conclusion to this incredible series!

“I’ll have the prettiest girl in the universe in the seat beside me.” I blushed and elbowed him in the ribs.
“Flirt.”
“With you? Always.”

Review: This is book 5 in the Runaway Series. I love the premise behind this series. Six friends who grew up in a junkyard together. All reconnecting over a car that once was home.

I'm so sad this series is over! I've loved these six friends, their relationships with one another and their journeys. This book was my favorite. Clara finishes off the journey to California in the Cadillac to deliver it to Karson. Only we learn so much that we never knew. I loved the flashbacks to past that we got as we learned Clara and Karson's history. Oh these two had me completely wrapped up in their story. I felt every emotion and little August was the cherry on top! I fell in love with that little boy and the relationship that Karson developed with him had my heart swooning.

“I’m not going to hold back. I’m not going to take this slow. I’ve missed too many years with you, and I am not going to waste another second. You’re mine. August is mine.”

I mean that quote!!!🥺🥺😍🥰 The Epilogue brought me to tears and I'm praying we get a second generation😍🙏🤞. I listed to the audiobook by Ava Erickson (my favorite) and Teddy Hamilton. These two were absolutely perfect bringing Clara and Karson to life and I loved every second. I absolutely LOVED THIS BOOK! Such a perfect end to this series! I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a fun ride, with touching stories, swoonworthy heros and especially anyone wanted to read Devney's work!

Amazing series worth every credit.

This book really had my emotions all over the place. Makes you think more about real life and how these kids suffered could really be a true story. I LOVED this one the most. It hurts to read something so amazingly written show casing the trauma these kids went through and accomplished so much more. Definitely a must read series. Loved everything about this book.

Solid ending

3.5 stars — I think inevitably these books in this series are solid, just a little underwhelming somehow. Like, they’re just a bit too short, missing that extra something to give me the satisfaction I’m looking for.

Unlike many reviewers, I actually really enjoyed the flashback to the past! I loved seeing Clara and Carson’s crushes turn into something more, and get a better glimpse of what it was like for them. It gave me a better understanding of their feelings, and the tumultuous end of their time together.

It was actually being back in the present that I found a bit more underwhelming. There was a wrench that I wasn’t expecting and, while it didn’t feel gratuitous, maybe it just wasn’t what this book needed since it was dealt with in exactly the way I expected…ie, it barely added anything in the end. Just not for this reader anyways. And while I really appreciated seeing them (and us as readers) finally get some closure on a few things, I just didn’t feel like we got enough time seeing their relationship develop as adults.

The narrators were pretty solid. I’ve enjoyed both of them in the past, though I found I was a bit more confused on who was speaking, or speaking vs thoughts this time…but that could have been just me.

So yeah. I enjoyed it, but I was left wanting more.

The series

I loved this entire series. Each time a new book started, I was sure that it couldn’t be as good as the one before. I was wrong.
Will wait a little while and then start it over. Worth another listen.

The Red Cadillac

i stumbled on Devney Perry while looking for other books narrated by Jason Clarke. .Some one dubbed this series Runaway. And yes all the main characters are runaways but the Red Cadillac is the glue, the catalyst, the Main character.
This finishes off the series with Clara and Carson. Ir tells more of the back story of how they all came together and ties it off nicely.
I had so much fun with this series that i have listened to several other Devney Perry books and none have disappointed.

Final Runaway book, sweet epilogue!

Dotted Lines is the 5th and final book in the Runaway series by Devney Perry. This was the last series I needed to read to be caught up on Devney Perry’s backlist and I had such a great time! I love the premise of this series so much: “one car, one cross-country road trip, five stories about six runaways finally finding home!” In the author’s note it says how this series was inspired by her love for The Boxcar Children series and wondering whatever happened to those kids once they were adults. I loved those books growing up too and was so excited for this series because of that!

Clara and her son August take a roadtrip in the red Cadillac, ready to take it from Arizona to California to drop it off to its original owner Karson. And it becomes Clara and Karson’s second chance romance!

Almost the first 50% of the book is the flashbacks to when they were teens and first met and lived together in the junkyard in California. Clara secretly crushed on Karson for a while and they finally got their own little teen love story before going separate ways. Clara and her twin Aria went to Las Vegas once they were 18, with Aria eventually ending up in Oregon and Clara ending up in Arizona. After the flashbacks we get to see Karson being surprised by Clara, and her son August in tow, when they show up with the Cadillac. It’s been 12 years since they saw one another and they definitely have a lot to catch up on.

This was a sweet second chance. I wanted a bit more time in the present day and was surprised with how much of the book the flashbacks took up. With all the kids who ended up living in the junkyard, Karson and Clara had rough lives and things they were escaping as teens. We do get to see them in present day to back to the junkyard. I loved the epilogue, 23 years later and we get to see all the junkyard friends and their partners together! Seeing all the couples from the series, hearing about all their children, and getting to see the red Cadillac living on with the next generation was so sweet and fun! This was a great series to binge and follow the Cadillac’s journey with all of these characters!
