Publisher's Summary

Trip Harrington was at the top of his game when he won an Olympic gold medal. A decade later, he's still reliving his victory and sailing on the honor and expects everyone in his small town to feel the same way. Truth is, they don't.

His parents, especially, aren't so keen on having their lazy, unemployed, and narcissistic son living with them. So they send him for counseling. Trip takes his psychologist's advice and begins to chances. His inflated ego intact, Trip is sure he can snag the affection of his pretty neighbor, Rose, a local goat farmer, and prove to his family and doctor that he's still the hometown hero.

But things don't go exactly to plan. After their date goes awry, Rose wants nothing to do with him. Problem is, Trip is totally smitten.

Can Trip shed his entitled attitude to find true happiness?

Tripped

Trip the Runner
By: Andrew Rolston

This is a sort of coming of age book, but instead of teens the characters are in their thirty's. Trip won an Olympic gold medal in his teens. He is a narcissist that

thinks the world revolves around him. He lives with his parents, doesn't work, and has no plan for his life. Rose lives with her father caring for their home, raising

goats and making and selling soap. After his father gives him an ultimatum Trip is forced to make a choice. Trip and Rose do not like each other much. And that is

where he story gets going. There is plenty of humor. I had fun listening to this book.

The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Harriett Hunt gave a nice performance.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Fantastic feel good story

What an absolute hidden gem of a book! Loved listening to this so much. Not what I expected at all! It tells the story of a former Olympic medal winner who is now in his thirties and still stays at home with his parents. The main character Trip is arrogant, lazy, a bit of a narcissist and quite un-likeable at the start. He meets a girl who looks after goats called Rose and falls in love. However their love affair is not a straight forward one. The tale is funny, charming and heart warming! I absolutely loved listening to it. The narrator told the story beautifully. I will look out for more from this author. ❤️🙌
