The Roads We Follow by Nicole Deese: Book Review

 *Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

A cross-country road trip. A secretive box of journals. An unforgettable summer romance.

As the youngest daughter of a country music legend, Raegan Farrow longs to establish an identity away from the spotlight and publish her small-town romances under a pen name. But after her dream is dashed when she won't exploit her mother's fame to further her own career, she hears a rumor from a reliable source regarding a tell-all being written about the Farrow family. Making matters worse, the unknown author has gone to great lengths to remain anonymous until publication.

Raegan chooses to keep the tell-all a secret from her scandal-leery sisters as they embark on a two-week cross-country road trip at their mother's request and makes it her mission to expose the identity of the author behind the unsanctioned biography. But all is complicated when she discovers their hired bus driver, Micah Davenport, has a hidden agenda of his own--one involving both of their mothers and an old box of journals. As they rely on each other to find the answers they seek, the surprising revelations they unearth will lead them down an unexpected road of love and reconciliation.

Nicole Deese is a Christy and Carol Award-winning, bestselling author of hope-filled, humorous, and heartfelt contemporary romance novels. When she's not sorting out character arcs and story plots of her own, she can usually be found listening to an audiobook and multitasking at least four different chores at once. She’s a hoarder of sparkling water, a lover of long walks and even longer talks with friends, and a seeker of fun and adventure at all times. She lives in small-town, Idaho with her happily-ever-after hubby, two freakishly tall teenage sons, and one princess daughter with the heart of a warrior.

The Roads We Follow is the second book in the Fog Harbor series. While the first book was wonderful and one that I would highly recommend, this could be enjoyed as a standalone if you haven't read it. 

Nicole Deese is a master storyteller. Every time I pick up one of her books, I know I am in for a story that is beautiful and heartfelt... and this one was absolutely no exception. There is a LOT going on in this story! When the story starts, we meet Raegan, an aspiring author who wants to make it without the aid of her mother's fame. When she learns that a tell all is being written about her mother's life, she wants to learn who is behind it... all while keeping it a secret from her family as they set out on a road trip. Micah is seeking to discover his own family secrets by joining the road trip as a bus driver. Throughout the story, we get to see the history between their mothers through his mother's journals. The romance between these two was absolutely beautifully done and I couldn't get enough of them (and that ending, oh my goodness!), but beyond that it really was a story about family relationships and legacies--- one that had me feeling a roller coaster of emotions. Being a country music fan, I definitely enjoyed that aspect of the story as well. 

If you're looking for a beautiful Christian romance, you absolutely won't want to miss this one.
