Linda’s Book Obsession Reviews “Side Trip” by Kerry Lonsdale, Amazon Publishing, July 7, 2020
Wow! Kerry Lonsdale, Author of “Side Trip” takes us on an emotional, memorable, intriguing journey of life, decisions, and love. The Genres for this story are Contemporary Fiction, Romance, Women’s Fiction, and Fiction. The timeline for this story takes place over a decade. The author describes her dramatic characters as complex and complicated.
Joy Evers is on a road trip to live out her deceased sister’s bucket list, and to meet up with her fiance Mark to start a new life. Joy is at a diner when she meets Dylan Westfield when his car breaks down. Both seem to have different and opposite personalities. Joy does offer Dylan, who is a musician a ride, with certain conditions. One condition is that if they have to take a “side trip” they must agree.
I read this in one sitting and felt like this was a journey into self-growth and the ups and downs of life. Both Joy and Dylan have secrets and have emotional baggage. I would highly recommend this thought-provoking novel that questions so many things about life.
