Poor Roz! Once again stuck on the horns of a dilemma. Does she accept the offer for a great job that’s hundreds of miles from Crooked Lake? Or does she choose David, the great guy who grows grapes half a mile from her house? And either way—assuming our crabby woman-of-a-certain-age manages to make a decision—what about her ghost, Bob?
Granted, Bob and Roz have never had a, um, ‘traditional’ relationship but still, martini-loving ghosts don’t toddle along every day of the week. What happens to the wit, the sparkle, the laughter?
So many questions. Sigh . . .
Join Roz, David—and Bob—as they spend a beautiful, but confusing, summer on Crooked Lake. And oh, by the way, watch out for those drips . . .

Delightful and Satisfying! R. Murphy has a one-of-a kind series in The Bob Books, and the third offering, Bob and the Polka Dot Highway, is pure delight! I love Murphy's upbeat tone, breezy style, and unending creativity. At the same time, the series is grounded in an in-depth knowledge of the Algonquin Round Table; she deftly integrates the players and personalities of that witty circle in a way that's fresh and relevant nearly 100 years after its founding. In the end, this is a satisfying read and a fun addition to a terrific series.
