Review: On the Road to Love: a Love in the City romantic comedy by Melissa Baldwin

From bestselling romantic comedy author Melissa Baldwin comes the road trip of a lifetime!

Successful Manhattan accountant Stacy Brown is shocked when her almost perfect life unexpectedly crumbles around her. Blindsided by her husband when he serves her with divorce papers and tossed aside by the women she considered her best friends, devastation and depression hit her hard. But when her mother sends her an old photograph of her and two childhood friends, Candace and Olivia, it fuels a desire in Stacy to find that person she once was. What starts as a chance to reconnect turns into an unforgettable road trip back to her childhood home and an encounter with a man from her past.

Gavin Kingsley, son of Stacy's old piano teacher and former annoying boy next door, sparks something in Stacy that she hasn't felt in a long time…maybe never? Despite her hesitation to jump into a relationship, Stacy can't help being drawn to him as she and her girlfriends take a journey of self-discovery, laughs, tears, and hysterical moments.

Can returning to her past give Stacy everything she's been searching for in her future? 

My Review:

An inspiring story about three old friends reuniting for a road trip down the east coast to their home town in Florida.

After Stacy Brown's divorce, her mother comes across a picture of Stacy and her two best friends when they were younger.  Stacy decides getting together with her old friends for a trip home would be fun. 

Along the way there were some comedic mishaps that made me laugh and Stacy's two best friends learn to forgive each other for something that happened in the past.  When they get to Florida, Stacy spends time with Gavin, a guy from her childhood, who helps her move forward from her divorce.  Just when Stacy starts to fall for Gavin and decides she wants to move back to Florida to be with him, she gets a job promotion that could change things.  But with her ex –husband getting a job at the same accounting firm, Stacy needs to decide what she really wants in life, the job she dreamed of (even with the ex there) or a new life with a man who knows how to make her happy.

I enjoyed this book a lot.  It makes you think about what is most important in your life.  I would love a spinoff of this story so I can read more about Olivia and Candice and also find out how Stacy and Gavin’s new life goes.  I just couldn’t get enough of these characters.
