So when the opportunity arose to enter my book club buddies into a contest for a chance to win $50,000, I took it. I just forgot to tell them about it. And guess what? We won. Which poses a problem, since I didn't bother to read the fine print.
Now, I need to find a way to convince Alex and Gigi, two gems I've never even met outside of a computer screen, to recreate a girls' trip with me - photos and all - by the end of the week.
What could possibly go wrong?

Road trippin' with my two favorite allies...
The song stuck in my head listening to this book: Road Trippin' by the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I recommend the song for any road trip, but I digress.
I picked this title up because I thought it would be perfect for a road trip I was taking with my daughter. Especially since the two us of love road trips and reading. Unfortunately, the narrator ruined it. The accents were overdone and made the characters disagreeable. The worst part though is that she either sounded like she just finished running a mile, was coming up for breath after a dive, or simply spoke everything through a sigh. Yes, our heroine is exasperated through much of the book but not every sentence needs a gasp for air.
When it came to the plot itself there were some holes that weren't ever filled for my liking Restraining order? What kind of expensive surgery can wait that long? "Surprise" train to DC with destination remaining such a mystery?
All of those things can be forgiven though because if you've ever had a fantasy of meeting your Goodreads friends, meeting the folks you follow on Audible, or taking a vacay with your book club, give this book a try (just read it at your destination and not on the way there). This one probably would have made 4 stars if I hadn't listened to it.

Remember to Smile!
Three days of utter chaos or was it total bliss when Lena learned the true facts of life.
Alex and Gigi, 2 of the best girlfriends a person could have, an ex husband and nutty sex craved ex boss, a beloved pet dog needing surgery, a winning story, a road trip and 3 guys - all this helping to make this a LOL, tongue in cheek comedy/romance that just rolls off the pages.
And when the 'truths' of this 'lesson' that Lena had to learn began to spill out, they all realized how valuable their friendships and relationships really were.
This story was marvelous and well worth the read.
I only had a problem with the narration being too 'breathy' with Stephanie Murphy sounding out of breath at the end of almost every sentence and would suggest a serious course of 'Breathing coaching' before attempting further narration jobs.
If you love laughter and an easy read story then this is the book for you. Enjoy!
