In Book One of the Route 66 Series, things go strangely awry when Jett Murphy attempts to stop his ex-employee, Georgia Darling, from meeting with an investigative reporter. Soon he finds himself tooling down Route 66, from Chicago to Texas, with a vibrant Lucy Ricardo wannabe. Even though the press is hot on their trail, claiming Jett has kidnapped a disgruntled employee, hes determined to keep his promise to Georgia and look long and hard at the Double Heart Diner before making the decision to market the property to land developers. This madcap trip down Route 66 will evoke smiles and laughter, easily cementing Annie Joness rightful place as a top-notch creator of love and laughter. (Feb., 256 pp., $6.95)
