About the Book

On the road to love, you don’t need a GPS…

Carla Black’s life motto is “here for a good time, not for a long time.” She’s been traveling the world on her own in her vintage Jeep Wrangler for nearly a decade, stopping only long enough to replenish her adventure fund. She doesn’t do love and she doesn’t ever go home.

Eamon Sullivan is a modern-day cartographer who creates digital maps. His work helps people find their way, but he’s the one who’s lost his sense of direction. He’s unhappy at work, recently dumped, and his one big dream is stalled out—literally.

Fate throws them together when Carla arrives in Dublin for her best friend’s wedding and Eamon is tasked with picking her up from the airport. But what should be a simple drive across Ireland quickly becomes complicated with chemistry-filled detours, unexpected feelings, and a chance at love – if only they choose it.

My Thoughts

I have been lucky enough to be part of this series from the beginning, and the books keep getting better. Carla is so used to running that she doesn’t know how to slow down. She tells herself she has a life anyone would dream of, but it’s a lonely life. She’s running away from close ties and her father’s dementia. But this is the life he told her to have, so she’s doing what he asked, right? Enter Eamon. Carla is down for a fling; that’s what people do at weddings. But her week in Ireland might toss everything Carla has believed out the window.

I love how fun this book is. It starts with a bang and takes off running. At the center of everything is Carla’s love of life, her love of exploring. Eamon is down to show her Ireland, and together, they experience something really beautiful. My heart hurt for Carla time and again. She has a good father, but his summer habit of exploration instilled in Carla a nomadic life, which has enabled her to shut herself off from feeling anything deeply. Her walls are thick, and those kinds of walls aren’t broken overnight. I loved watching her walls come down as her circle grew. This was such a lovely and fun read from start to finish. Thank you, St. Martin’s, for sending over an advanced copy.
