I had this sat on my kindle for ages, and in an effort to be frugal, I am reading some of the many hundreds of unread books on my kindle!

So, I actually really really enjoyed this.

I was all set up to hate the hero btw, or at least strongly dislike him until he grovelled well enough given what we knew of him from the heroines POV. But toward the end, I adored him. He was actually more of a vulnerable character than the heroine. He was sweet and gorgeous, and so loving. But he wanted so much more for the heroine than what he thought he could offer. But he wants to be so much more for himself too.

I loved the premise of the story. A family doing one more road trip in honour of their wife/mom who they had lost.

I loved Marley, Paul and Bernie. An awesome family. Then Porter – Paul’s best friend who had spent more time with their family than his own. More of an honorary son than sons best friend.

I adored this story. Yes it is hilarious, but it is also emotional, and poignant and has a depth to it that was unexpected.

However, not quite 5 stars, as toward the end, in all honesty Paul and his antics were getting a bit tiresome and I wished he would just calm down a touch an stop being an OTT man child princess. It was funny to start but it got too much after a book full of it. So knocking half a star off for that.

But I really need to get more by this author.

A hugely enjoyable 4.5 stars
