Title: Road to Somewhere
Author: Kelley Lynn & Jenny S. Morris
Published On: March 11, 2014
Publisher: Bloomsbury Spark
New! From Bloomsbury Spark, a sunny heartwarming story of discovery and sisterhood.
A road trip. A singing competition. And super-hot cowboys.
What could be better?
For Charlie, a post-high school road trip isn't just a vacation, it's life changing. While her parents think she's helping a friend move, a chance at fame is the real reason to grab her best friends and drive to L.A. But when her super annoying, uber-responsible, younger sister, Lucy, has to tag along, it isn't quite the summer of fun she imagined.
Add in a detour to her grandparents' ranch in Texas, and between mucking the stalls, down-home cookin’, and drool worthy ranch hands, this could just turn into the best, and most complicated, summer of their lives.
Rating: 5 Stars !!!
I got this book from the authors, free of cost, in exchange of an honest review from my side.
Firstly I would like to thank the authors and the tour organizers for giving me this opportunity of reading and reviewing this fabulous book.
Well, first of all I would like to say that this is an awesome-sauce story that I just loved and adored !!!
I loved both the sisters i.e Charlotte aka Charlie and Lucille aka Lucy but I found myself completely attached with Lucy because in actual life I'm just like her though I always wanted to be like Charlie, careless, reckless and just do whatever I wish for but always I thought about my parents, family morals and values just like Lucy. The bond between the sisters developed nicely through out this book and we got to experience the steady improvement in their relationship.
This story also gave us the family picture of a regular family having several issues and the distance that each issue brings among us and how we try to cope with them but always wait for the others to make the first move towards settling everything. I felt that Lucy and Charlie had the same problems and even the relationship with their parents especially their dad was somewhat distant too and this genuine problems and emotions that the authors so brilliantly expressed in this story made me love it.
The other characters such as the handsome ranch hands aka the love interests of the girls also won my heart and they played their part well. The best scene was that when Charlie humiliated her ex in front of all the people and in presence of his current girl friend and she didn't even flinch or wavered and was totally bold and outright.
There were so many memorable moments that I couldn't list all of them here but I would like to point out some like when Lucy composed the music for the song that Charlie wrote and she realized that the song not only described her but also Charlie in the same way. I loved Lucas and Lucy's first kiss under the firecrackers and I also enjoyed the country experience through Charlie and Lucy's journey.
A great detour for both the girls and for the readers as well. I would definitely like to continue their story if in future the authors decide to write a sequel because I want to know what happens after this epic detour and how it changed their day to day life.
So guys please read this and enjoy because it is refreshing and touching as well. Go on and enjoy folks!!!
