Life's a journey. Midlife's an adventure. But two weeks in a RV with the hot-flash sisters could drive anyone over the hill.
Dede signed on for this cross-country RV trip selflessly, for Millie and Lydia's sakes. Besides, she needed to get her mind off a love gone wrong and a demanding gourmet chocolates business. And it's for a good cause--sprucing up the old summer camp in Colorado to save it from closing. It will be a fun, memorable last hurrah before she turns fifty. Right?
But Dede's more of a luxury hotel kind of girl. She likes mints on plumped pillows and room service. Bunking with friends in a motor home the size of a phone booth is not her style. And with the mysterious biker gang and a stalking ex-boyfriend, the RV seems to be shrinking.
Still, with friends, a boutiful supply of truffles, and a boy from her past who has aged very well, this trip might be the best vacation ever!
A hilarious story that celebrates the life in midlife--even the occasional moose and mosquitoes--and the surprising grace of God.
Millie, Lydia, and DeDe have been friends since childhood; they met at Christian youth camp. Through the years, theyve kept in touch, and now in mid-life discover its time to reconnect. Coinciding with DeDes 50th birthday, the three women journey back in time to help restore the camp, which is in desperate need of help to stay open.
As they roadtrip by RV, they encounter hilarious obstacles, always managing to wrangle a way out. Their adventures unfold through the eyes of DeDe, a successful businesswoman who sells gourmet chocolates and stays in shape through dedication to pilates. Never married, she wonders if shell ever meet her Prince Charming.
Lydia and Millie also find themselves alone again, carrying baggage from former marriages. Is it too late in mid-life to start over? The plot thickens as old flames from their youth also show up for the camp alumni reunion.
Reading this made me want to hop in an RV and travel around the country, eating Smores and swapping stories with fellow campers. The novel does more than entertain. We see how the word of Christ dwells richly in these oh-so-real women, as eternal hope continues to transform and renew life, love, and friendship. --Heather Ivester, Christian Book Previews.com
Doris Samford5 Stars Out Of 5June 22, 2010Doris SamfordThe first time I read this book I had just "survived" 18 months of living in a RV. Leaking roof, overworked a/c, and a door that locks one out (that was hilarious!) I felt a real kinship with these girls. A year later, after sharing the book with sister and a couple of friends, I read it again. Sure glad I had bought it in hard cover. This one is a keeper!
Joni5 Stars Out Of 5January 19, 2008JoniWonderfully funny and uplifting. Pick up some truffles to have on hand while you read this book though. Looking forward to reading more of Diann Hunt's books.
Carol5 Stars Out Of 5October 7, 2007CarolI loved this book. Her sense of humor is so great it had my husband asking who I was talking to. At 2:30 am I was laughing until I had tears running down my face. I can relate to her sense of humor. I will read all of her books. What a great stress reliever.
Marsha5 Stars Out Of 5September 25, 2007MarshaFun, Fun, Fun! A great read filled with humor. Entertaining and enjoyable, with great characters!
Janet5 Stars Out Of 5September 9, 2007JanetRV THERE YET? is belly-laughing-out-loud funny. At the same time, it encourages one to stop and think what shape their faith is in. I have read all of Diann Hunt's books and look forward to reading more.
