On the Road to Love by Melissa Baldwin
Published by Gemma Halliday Publishing on April 17, 2018
Genres: Romantic Comedy
Successful Manhattan accountant Stacy Brown is shocked when her almost perfect life unexpectedly crumbles around her. Blindsided by her husband when he serves her with divorce papers and tossed aside by the women she considered her best friends, devastation and depression hit her hard. But when her mother sends her an old photograph of her and two childhood friends, Candace and Olivia, it fuels a desire in Stacy to find that person she once was. What starts as a chance to reconnect turns into an unforgettable road trip back to her childhood home and an encounter with a man from her past.
Gavin Kingsley, son of Stacy’s old piano teacher and former annoying boy next door, sparks something in Stacy that she hasn’t felt in a long time…maybe never? Despite her hesitation to jump into a relationship, Stacy can’t help being drawn to him as she and her girlfriends take a journey of self-discovery, laughs, tears, and hysterical moments.
Can returning to her past give Stacy everything she’s been searching for in her future?
My Book Review
On the Road to Love is the second novel I’ve read by Melissa Baldwin: I’ve also read and reviewed See You Soon Broadway. Melissa’s writing style in this new novel is fresh and fun and kept me thoroughly entertained the whole way through.
Stacy’s life is turned upside down when out of the blue her husband presents her with divorce papers; she didn’t even realize he thought they were having problems. This leads to a much-needed change in mindset and perspective for Stacy, and it’s the beginning of her road to self-discovery. In a way she rediscovers the person she was before she met him, along with the person she could be, and begins to transform into who she was meant to be. The story is filled with fun characters and situations and a potential love interest.
This book was so much fun to read that upon completing the story I was a bit sad it was over and cheered myself up with more of Melissa’s writing by beginning the Seasons of Summer Novella Series. It was the perfect way to ease my book hangover because trust me, the three leading ladies will bring excitement and laughs into your life while reading it. Fingers crossed there will be a second book in the series!
