A Turn in the Road by Debbie Macomber is a wonderful Summer read. Frankly, it's a great read for ANY time of the year!

This is the newest book in the Blossom Street series and I found it to be a delightful, relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable read!

The story centers around Bethanne Hamilton, her daughter Annie and Bethanne's former mother in law - Ruth. Each of these women are at a turning point in their lives as they join together to take an unexpected road trip that will change their lives forever.

Here's a bit about this book from the publisher:

In the middle of the year, in the middle of her life, Bethanne Hamlin takes a road trip with her daughter, Annie, and her former mother-in-law, Ruth.

They're driving to Florida for Ruth's 50th high-school reunion. A longtime widow, Ruth would like to reconnect with Royce, the love of her teenage life. She's heard he's alone, too…and, well, she's curious. Maybe even hopeful.
Bethanne herself needs time to reflect, to ponder a decision she has to make. Her ex-husband, Grant—her children's father—wants to reconcile now that his second marriage has failed. Bethanne's considering it….
Meanwhile, Annie's out to prove to her onetime boyfriend that she can live a brilliant life without him!
So there they are, three women driving across America. They have their maps and their directions—but even the best-planned journey can take you to a turn in the road. Or lead you to an unexpected encounter—like the day Bethanne meets a man named Max who really is a hero on a Harley. That's when Bethanne's decision becomes a lot harder. Because Grant wants her back, but now there's Max….

From Seattle's Blossom Street to the other end of the country, this is a trip that could change three women's lives.

I had a blast reading this book. It made me laugh, cry and just have a darned good time reading it. A Turn in the Road is a classic Debbie Macomber book that you don't want to miss!

I am glad to read that you are having glorious sunshiny days in your part of the world. So are we but we are not getting to sit beside a pool. We are working as fast as we can to get our house ready to put on the market. The only draw back is that Mr. Handsome is having to do most of the work. I am recovering well and am praising the Lord helping me heal so quickly from surgery, but am not able to push, pull or lift.

Glad you are enjoying the pool along with your children. So fun!
