“… The characters made me laugh, cry, and wish that the story went on forever.”

“…extremely addictive.”

“I had to force myself to put it down at night.”

30-year-old Bailey is drinking too much (even for a member of her family), has a penchant to eat spoonfuls of Cool Whip, works in a job that bores her beyond description, and can’t keep a relationship longer than it takes for milk to expire in her fridge.

“I felt as if I was living the story.”

So she packs up her Honda and heads away from her family and friends in search of herself, and answers to secrets from her great-grandmother’s past. Filled with quirky and memorable characters, the novel takes you on a journey from sticky-hot Texas to a cool mountain town in Colorado and back again, as Bailey uncovers not only the secrets of her great-grandmother’s life, but also some painful secrets of her own …all while finding love with along the way.

“… a top pick for fiction collections.” — Midwest Book Review


If you have ever wondered why you got stuck with the family you did, what you’re doing with your job and your life, or had a sudden desire to run off to the mountains, sit back and join Bailey for this laugh-out-loud, yet poignant ride.
