Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite On the Road to Love: A Love in the City Romantic Comedy is a contemporary romance novel written by Melissa Baldwin. Stacy’s life was just about as perfect as it could get, that is, if she discounted the grueling commute from their suburban New Jersey home to New York City where she and her husband, Greg, worked at two of the city’s more prestigious accounting firms. Thursday evening’s commute was no different from most of them. Sometimes she and Greg travelled together, which was a real bonus in added together time, but this afternoon she was alone. She spent that hour-plus trip considering just how fortunate they were. They had great jobs, a supportive and caring group of friends and, who knows?, maybe sometime in the future they’d begin thinking about starting a family. When she opened the front door, Stacy blissfully breathed in the fragrant fumes of Chinese take-away and decided to indulge without even shrugging off her work clothes beforehand. She was surprised to see Greg working at the dinner table, something they had both agreed never to do, but Greg had even more on his mind than work. As she stared stunned at the divorce papers he had in his folder, she wondered how he could do this without saying a word. Suddenly, her nearly perfect illusion of a life was shattered. On the Road to Love: A Love in the City Romantic Comedy is a fresh and breezy story about life after divorce, and how even the worst situation can suddenly transform itself into something much better with just a change of perspective or environment. Stacy’s decision to go home to Florida for some comfort and time spent with her parents morphs into a fabulous road trip with the two friends from home that she’d lost track of. Baldwin’s story is upbeat and fun as the three friends travel south, making endless pit stops and reconnecting along the way. Her characters are well defined and credible, and their road trip is great fun, even if vicariously, to experience. Baldwin’s story is a sweet romance, making this novel a suitable choice for young and new adults as well. On the Road to Love: A Love in the City Romantic Comedy is most highly recommended.

After feeling very down for months her mother sends her a photo of Stacy and two of her best best friends from her past, she decides to go on a road trip home to Florida for for a much needed vacation. She forwards the photo on to her 2 friends whom she hasn't had any real contact with for a long time. The other two have had a major falling out in the past and are not on talking terms, but both decide to go on the road trip with Stacy not knowing the other one is also going this leads to a very interesting and funny trip. Well work the read.

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.

Sadie Brown, a successful accountant, thought she had life all figured out. She had a loving husband in Greg, a job she loved and good friends…or did she? Find out by reading “On the Road to Love”. An enjoyable, sometimes heart aching, romantic comedy about who you can trust and who really loves you. Sadie finds out that her husband wants a divorce and that mutual friends will choose sides and sometimes you are on the losing side. She takes a road trip to her childhood home and learns more about herself and life with the help of Gavin. He lived next door to Sadie during her childhood, but Gavin is now all grown up! I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to give an honest review. (by paytonpuppy)
