A Turn in the Road (Blossom Street Series #9) by Debbie Macomber

Sometimes, where you think you’re going isn’t where you end up…

In the middle of the year, in the middle of her life, Bethanne Hamlin takes a road trip with her daughter, Annie, and her former mother-in-law, Ruth.

They’re driving to Florida for Ruth’s 50th high-school reunion. A longtime widow, Ruth would like to reconnect with the love of her teenage life. She’s curious and maybe even hopeful.

Bethanne needs time to reflect, to ponder a decision she has to make—whether or not to reconcile with her ex-husband, Grant, her children’s father.

Meanwhile, Annie’s out to prove to her onetime boyfriend that she can live a brilliant life without him!

So there they are, three women driving across America. They have their maps and their directions—but even the best-planned journey can take you to a turn in the road. Or lead you to an unexpected encounter…

From Seattle’s Blossom Street to the other end of the country, this is a trip that could change three women’s lives.

Welcome back to the women of Blossom Street. Bethanne six years after her divorce from Grant is faced with him wanting to rekindle their relationship. On a spur of the moment decision she decides to drive cross-country with her ex-mother-in-law, Ruth, and her daughter, Annie. Ruth is going to her fifty-year high school reunion in Vero Beach, Florida. She is hoping to see her high school sweetheart, Royce Jameson. Annie is upset with her boyfriend, Vance, who has gone off to Europe with two of his friends, one of which is a girl, for a year without her. Ruth, Annie, ans Bethanne decide to go to Pendleton, Oregon. This is where Ruth and her deceased husband, Richard had first lived after getting married and where their son, Grant, was born. Ruth wanted to look up her old friend, Marie. Marie's parents owned a diner. They went to the diner and found Marie running it. She was going to close for the day because her waitress and dishwasher were both sick. Ruth, Annie and Bethanne pitch in and help her run the diner for the day. The first customers are four bikers. Bethanne becomes aware of the one biker named Max watching her. They make eye contact and his look seems to go straight thru her. This is just the first turn in the road for Bethanne, Ruth and Annie. The three of them grow closer, share secrets and confront their fears. Another great book by Debbie Macomber and I can't wait for the next book about the women of Blossom Street.

A TURN IN THE ROAD is the story of three generations of exuberant, strong women at a crossroads in their lives in more ways than one. From Washington to Florida, Las Vegas, New Orleans.so many stops, so many adventures on the way, all to find answers to fulfill their lives. Macomber's books are always pleasant to read, nothing that makes you feel uncomfortable or uneasy, always great writing, interesting real-life characters and a lesson or two in life.

Hard time putting it down. Really really good book. Wish it was part of triology to keep reading about these women.

A Good story with a Good Ending! A Turn in the Road is book 8 of the Blossom Street series. However, the references to characters in the series are rare, so this book stands alone very well. Three women from three generations decide to take a road trip across the country. The oldest, 68 year old widow Ruth, wants to attend her 50 year class reunion and find her High school boyfriend. Middle-aged divorced Bethanne is struggling with a decision about reuniting with her ex-husband. While on the road she meets a wonderful man who complicates her decision. Bethanne’s daughter, Annie, is distraught over her boyfriend’s unexpected decision to spend a year in Europe alone and decides the car trip will help her decide what to do about her life. While the main story is about Bethanne, the stories about the other two women are interesting and keep the book moving. Bethann’s decision is difficult and the books does not treat it lightly. The resolution is not obvious until nearly the end of the book. The author does a good job of showing everyone’s point of view while keeping the suspense in the story. In her usual style, Ms. Macomber adds lots of light moments as the three generations try to understand each other.

I have read all the books thus far in this series, and this is the first one that I didn't enjoy. I'm not quite sure why I didn't like it, but I think it had to do with the fact that the characters were not to my liking and I think I actually wanted her to go back to her husband. I have read all of Debbie Macomber's books and I think she is a wonderful writer. This one just didn't appeal to me.

Shouldn’t Have Turned So Much As a Debbie Macomber fan for many years, I think she can do much better work than this book. I could not identify the three women characters with anyone I know. They seem to be very weak women. And, I felt a lot of anger while reading due to the main character’s indecision. Also, the situations in which they find themselves seem very contrived. I would only recommend this to other fans of this author. I think even they will be disappointed, though.

Probably my favorite of the series. Could vividly picture each event & loved the humor. Almost skipped ahead to find out which man ended up the winner but glad I didn't. Great read.
