Isn't it romantic? - Eileen Dreyer







Blurb: 

Pete Cooper and Brooke Ferguson were once childhood friends who spent evenings watching TV with Pete's Aunt Mamie.

Now Pete is a famous cable news anchor who earned his stripes in war zones, and Brooke watches Pete on the same old TV in the same small town.

Then Aunt Mamie passes away, and everything changes.

When Pete and Brooke set out on a road trip to fulfill Mamie's last wishes, they discover more than tornadoes, Hell's Angels, New Orleans Jazz Funerals, and one unique antebellum mansion. They find they might just be falling in love.


After a rather depressingly conventional memorial service that didn't do justice to her motherly friend Mamie and her eccentric ways at all, Brooke packs up her newly inherited Thunderbird and her lifelong friend Pete, Mamie's nephew and sets out on a road trip to fulfill Mamie's wishes. Mamie had very distinctive ideas concerning her memorial service including Hell's Angels, jazz bands, limericks and ...well, alright, the Tornado was not on Mamie's list but actually, considering Mamie, it might well have been - anyway, as her family didn't honor her wishes, Brooke and Pete will see to that.
This road trip turns out to be the adventure of a lifetime and - it'll change everything!

I really loved this story. It is really sweet and charming, funny, gripping and - well, it was hard to put the book down. The characters are amazing, especially Brooke is someone I'd love to have at my side when going on such a trip. I loved all the small scenes when Brooke and Pete fulfill another one of Aunt Mamie's wishes. They are all very special and I'd have loved to join them. The people they meet, the things they experience and the easy acceptance and friendship offered to them are wonderful to read about.

A wonderful story of love, friendship and new chances!
