D’Anne Palmer and her husband had a life others dream of—traveling the US in a luxury forty-foot motor coach, going where they wanted. Suddenly, D’Anne finds herself a widow with her only asset being the motor home. Without funds to return to California, she decides to hire out the RV. Tyler White was a “one-hit-wonder” ten years ago. At a crossroads, he decides to attempt a comeback. He’s hoping the three-week tour he’s put together will reignite his career. All he needs now is some cheap transportation, and the widow with the RV might just fit the bill. D’Anne and Tyler discover a lot about themselves—and each other—as they journey from Nashville to Las Vegas, via Texas, with the band and Tyler’s dog. Can close quarters really help a has-been singer on the comeback trail and a widow with California style find love?

Review: Since country music was a large part of the storyline I didn’t expect to like this book as much as I did. One for the Road had plenty of adventure along with romance and heartache. Marshall made the characters real with strengths, flaws, successes and failures. She wove love, friendship and family in so well that you had no choice but to root for Dee and Tyler to come out on top along with the rest of the band members. The book flowed, introducing characters throughout as well as some mystery. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading others by Lynne Marshall.

Favorite Quote:  “She wanted to swoon at his feet and tell him he’d had her by the heart ever since that shut-up kiss back in Abilene. She’d just been too stubborn and ashamed to admit it.”
