When Samantha Adams learns that her grandmother has passed away, she feels little sadness for the woman she can’t remember. The only thing she knows about her is that she turned her back on her family years before. So it’s a bit of a surprise when a package arrives bearing Samantha’s name, containing letters to her and mementos that belonged to her grandmother. She discovers that her grandmother has included her in the will…with one caveat.
Growing up in the seedier parts of Boston, Ellis Hudson knows her way around the lowlifes she defends. She fills her life with one night stands, since the woman she loves is straight and completely unavailable. Instead, she settles for best friends. She’s struggling with her own doubts about her career and what she wants to do with her life.
With nothing more than some letters, a map and a few names, they set out on the road trip of a lifetime. Along the way, they meet different people who knew Samantha’s grandmother. Samantha realizes that each memento is a piece of her grandmother’s memory of those people and she starts to return them. Along the way, Samantha realizes her attraction to Ellis was more than just a drunken thing. The journey also challenges Ellis’ will to remain just friends. Will they take the life lessons that Samantha’s grandmother teaches them and finally follow their hearts?

I did have to wirk abit to stay with it. It was hard to swallow that neither character couldnn't figure out who Grandnmother's love was. The tug and pull was too drawn out. But overall...even with my cynical heart...i liked it.
I thought this book was great.
I really wanted to like this book but I just couldn't get into. The story is a simple one: two best friends are in love with each other ("straight" Sam and "gay" Ellis) but neither are willing to admit it. Sam's grandmother passes away and request that Sam take a road trip to find out more about her absent grandmother and who better to come with her than her best friend. In confined spaces for a month, this trip will either break them or make them. Simple enough story but that's just it, it stayed simple. The characters though intriguing were never developed enough for you to want to connect with them. Intimate moments or awkward moments ended too soon and then were brushed aside. More focus seemed to be placed on the side story than on the main story (the relationship between the two women). On top of that, everyone they met had advise for them and it was the same advise over and over again. It just got old and bit redunant to me at times. If it was just a story about two friends discovering Sam's grandmother and the focus was about her life then the story would be different and I probably would have liked it more. But being I went in thinking it was a romance blooming between two people I was disappointed. If you want a good story with more connection about two best friend discovering each other, I suggest the "Gravity Between Us."
