Publisher's Summary

Determined to fulfill her husband's last request, Claudia McIntosh is hauling a three-foot bust of Elvis Presley in the back seat of a vintage Cadillac from Dallas to Memphis, hoping to locate the kitschy sculpture's rightful owner.

Along for the ride are her eccentric aunt who knew the King of Rock 'n' Roll, and a temperamental teen with a suspicious mind of her own.

When the road trip hits the Heartbreak Hotel, these three women uncover pieces of their past along with the bust's mysterious history, discoveries that will leave them all shook up and change their lives forever in Elvis Takes a Back Seat.

Misleading

What would have made Elvis Takes a Back Seat better?

To have it stated in the description that it was religious fiction instead of something that sounded like a humorous book about a zany trip to Memphis to return a stolen bust of Elvis.

What was most disappointing about Leanna Ellis’s story?

That the first 2/3 of the book is regular fiction - the last half you get preached to.

Have you listened to any of Pam Turlow’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

The narrator was good. I would listen to other books she narrates.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The first 2/3 was pretty funny and interesting. It was very predictable. I knew the teenage girls problem really quickly and the truth about Claudia's parentage. But it was still seemed worth the listen until I got to the last 3 hours or so.
