A romantic road trip with my best friend?


I’ve always been the designated friend to Hadley Dawson, and I’d do myself good to remember that. Heck, I’m only on this road trip because she broke up with her boyfriend.

But can I confess something?

I’m in love with my best friend, and I have been for twenty years.
This romantic road trip to her friend’s destination wedding is the perfect opportunity to make her see me as more than her loyal Labrador and more like the type of lover she swoons over in those romantic suspense books she reads.


I thought I’d found the one, then he cheated. So now I’m stuck going to a southern wedding ALONE, which is taboo in my culture.


I ask my best friend, whom I’m very much attracted to but definitely do not deserve, to tag along with me.
I mean, he’s never said no to being my stand-in date before.

The problem? I planned this road trip to Virginia for a couple, which means one-bedroom hotels, romantic cabins, and don’t even get me started on the activities.

Oh heavens, I’m toast.

So...I read this book a few years ago when I was just getting back into reading contemporary books. I don’t actually remember what I felt about it then, but now, I’m so thankful for this book and authors like Drew! It’s a real story, with real characters, real flaws, real heartache, and real faith. All in one. No major highlighting that it’s a Christian book or bringing faith into the guilt of life or using it as a crutch. I truly enjoyed getting to know the characters and enjoyed seeing faith as part of their journey.
