Alys Seagraves is twenty-seven, but looks as though she is sixteen. She lost her husband, Fred, to cancer one year ago. Her elderly, eccentric friend, Mame Emerson, had her take some classes at "Mame's School of Alternative Life Lessons", such as Yoga. Now the pair decide to embark upon an epic road trip along historic Route 66. They are going to relive Mame's honeymoon trip.
Mame suffers a mild heart attack that throws a wrench into the plans. Hating hospitals, and knowing her nephew Elliott Roth "Doc Nice" (a famous radio doctor) would keep her from going, Mame tries to get out of the hospital before he shows up. She fails. But while Alys and her nephew are not looking, Mame sneaks out of the hospital, steals Elliott's black Range Rover, and off she goes! Of course, Mame gets someone else to drive since Alys is unavailable. Wiley Mame decides to do a bit of matchmaking while she avoids Elliott. At the same time she is helping one of her students kidnap a niece.
Dr. Elliot Roth wants Mame off the road and resting in a hospital or nursing home. Since Alys has Mame's pink Cadillac "Beulah" and the travel route, he has to accept the fact that he must travel with her if he is to have any chance of catching up with Mame. Alys is finally feeling alive again and is determined to enjoy the journey. Elliot is patient despite his pragmatic tendencies and pops Tums often. Spending hours together in old Beulah makes sparks fly, just as Mame expected to happen.
***** A fun romantic comedy that will make you feel as though you are traveling the historic Route 66 with Alys and Elliott. The back of the book has Elliott's last name listed as Ross; however, the inside of the book showed the last name Roth. So do not let the cover and my synopsis confuse you.

Aurora Jenkins "Rory" had been born and raised on an island off the shores of South Carolina. She volunteered to help protect the area from fancy lawyers buying it all up and turning it into high-rises, motels, big businesses, parking lots, and tearing up the entire area. She was fighting for her family (in more ways than one), neighbors, and environment. She would use all her big business know-how, if necessary, to do it. But in order to succeed, she must win Clay McCloud over to her side. The State Parks Department (Mr. Ben Little) only needed Clay to locate the owners for them. If the lawyers could get just one of them to sell their small share of the property, then they could have the WHOLE PARCEL on the auction block within a few short weeks! Getting Clay to just LISTEN would not be easy though. The software genius has been playing hermit, hoping not to have to deal with any of it.
Clay McCloud was enjoying being alone and secluded! He had enough of owning dot coms online or designing business software and computer games only for someone to steal them from him. He no longer wanted the big dollars, fancy cars, and gorgeous women that he'd had for so long. Or so he thought! Rory looked a lot like the Viking princess he had designed on his video game "Mysterious". As attracted as he was, Clay had his own set of rules about women like Aurora. But rules were made to be broken.
***** Awesome story that kept my nose stuck in the book tighter than cement glue! I even learned some interesting things about rural coast lines and the animals that live there. This story is a sure winner! *****

Aurora Jenkins left home to concur the world only to return to her roots once she looses her financial job. Not to be left bored, she is tasked with caring for an injured father and sister. Once home, Aurora decides that the island where her town is located needs a park and volunteers her expertise to provide a budget to the town. Everything runs smooth until she discovers that her budget will mean having to track down the landowners. Had she taken the conventional route through city hall and bureaucracy, she would have missed the sparks that fly when she determines that hooking up with software genius Clay McCloud is the quickest path.
Clay was just sitting around, minding his own business without desiring any complications. When this gorgeous redhead seeks his assistance, he can't help but to be intrigued. While they don't share the same outlook for the island, they do share a hidden passion for each other that begs through the pages to be unleashed.
The backdrop is environmental versus development. A supporting cast carries this story and the overall outcome is wonderful if not a tad too obvious. The 180-degree opposite personalities of the love interests add to the passion as each wants to dominate the other. I enjoyed the book and recommend it.

I received this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for an honest review.

This is the fourth book in the series but the first that I have read (it won't be the last).

The descriptions of the setting brought the area to life, in particular I was fascinated by the turtles nesting in the sand.

The plot ticked along nicely with plenty of shenanigans and skulduggery from those with a vested interest in developing the area, thus destroying a wildlife habitat and making people homeless.

The characters were quirky and fun, especially both sets of family members. Clay and Aurora epitomised the cliche "opposites attract" and the sparks between them could have started a fire!

I thoroughly enjoyed it.
