the ride to dinah's wedding 10 Mar 2004
By S. Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I wasn't sure which character to like more - Seth, Dinah, Tripp or Addie. I loved them all. What a ride. It took a few pages to get into the spirit of the "ride", but then I was hooked. I used it as a beach book and was glad to have uninterrupted time to read it. The old adage - "It is the journey, not the destination" really applies here. The tone of the book matched the subject, light and breezy. I would recommend it to anyone (women mostly) who wanted a lighthearted romp with some people who were discoverying themselves as much as they are discoverying each other.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Nurse Dinah Lee needs a cure for a broken heart when her fiancé Woody Monroe fails to appear at their wedding ceremony. Woody's irate cousin Seth wants to find his useless relative because he lent him five thousand dollars for the wedding and since no I do occurred he wants his money returned immediately. Dinah thinks Seth's road show search is the elixir for her blues; she successfully begs Seth to let her accompany him because she needs to know why her betrothed dumped her after she pounds theheck out of Woody.
The avenging duo travels from Jacksonville to Oklahoma on the trail, but along the way pick up separately the hitchhiking Tripp and Bayou Addie, with the former armed and the latter on the lam. From Oklahoma to Spokane this foursome spend a series of wild dog nights seeking Woody, but as they enter the final leg, they owe the wanderer more than just a pounding because true love has blossomed during this crazy cross country trek.
Take IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT and place it inside the zaniness of IT'S A MAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD and one will understand the jocular madcap road show of THE RIDE TO DINAH'S WEDDING. The story line is a series of running jokes driven together by love found on a lonely highway. Readers get a prejudicial taste of Woody mostly through his condemnation by a seething Seth and a dizzy Dinah. Ann Kline shows a delightful comedic touch that will send those readers who appreciate a lighthearted romp to go along for the wacky ride.

Not very realistic, but funny. 2 Feb 2004
By Huntress Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
It was supposed to be the happiest day of Dinah Lee's life, but instead of white lace and promises, she got stood up at the altar. Her groom, Woody, had flown the coop, hightailing it across the country to Spokane, Washington. Dinah wasn't the one the most upset though. Seth, Woody's cousin, was not about to let him get away with humiliating Dinah, so the two of them set off across America in his truck to give Woody what for.
Before they got very far, Dinah and Seth find themselves on the wrong end of a gun, but their assailant is really harmless. Like Dinah, Tripp is a jiltee in pursuit of a jilter. Seth finds he has little choice but to put Tripp in the back of the truck and continue on, until they hit Cajun country. There they pick up another passenger, Addie, a teen age Bayou queen on the run from the terrible Armand and a set of gun toting twins.
Seth would be willing to chuck the lot of them off a bridge, but there's something about Dinah getting under his skin, and he can't very well abandon a baby. How did he acquire one of those? Go along for the Ride to Dinah's Wedding and find out how.
*** Granted, although the laughs come a mile a minute, the effectiveness of the humor would have been increased had it been a bit less slapstick and more realistic. However, for escapist fun, there are not going to be many books with as many laughs. ***

SLOW start, SLOW middle, couldn't FINISH 6 Mar 2006
By Marie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I was disappointed to find that when I picked up this book at the library, I thought it was going to be a laugh a minute. It was constant inturruptions in the story line with one character intruding and then another taking over the story. It was so annoying, I couldn't believe Dinah would let the "hijackers" of the storyline lead her around. I mean, if she was really as intent on finding her "yellow-bellied snake" of a fiance, then she wouldn't be going on wild goose chaces all over the country. I was mostly on Seth's side throughout the book. Get the storyline moving in a different direction. And all the people jumping in to give soooooo much opinions at the same time was soooooo annoying. I think the author put a little too much effort in trying to make the book good. The story would have been a lot better if she would've kept the not-so-important characters to a minimum. Sad to say, I couldn't even finish the book.
What more could you want in a book? 4 Mar 2004
By Steven Goldberg - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
It's funny, exciting, and filled with romantic tension. The pages turn themselves, and you feel like the characters could be your best friends. One warning: Don't start this book late at night. It kept me awake long past my bedtime--but it was well worth the ride!
