About the Book:
Dear friends and army wives Diana, Carmen, and Joanie have been through war, rumors of war, marital problems, motherhood, fears, joy, and heartache. But none of the women are prepared when their daughters decide to enlist in the army together. Facing an empty nest won’t be easy. Especially for Carmen. With emotions already high, she suffers an even greater blow: divorce papers. Diana understands the fury and tears. She’s been there. With nothing to lose and no one at home, the girlfriends impulsively accept an unexpected offer from their elderly neighbor. The recently widowed Tootsie has an RV, a handsome nephew at the wheel, and an aim for tiny Scrap, Texas, to embrace memories of her late husband. Still grieving, she can use the company as a balm for her broken heart. So can the empty nesters. Embarking on a journey of hope, romance, and healing, Diana, Carmen, and Joanie are at a turning point in their lives. And with the open road ahead of them, it’s just the beginning.

Life, love, and happiness. Life, one doesn’t have a choice about.
Love is negotiable. Happiness—that’s the tough one.
This is my second book by this author and I enjoyed it much more than the first one. It’s one of those books that takes pieces of real life and plays them out in such a way that the reader is an integral part of the story, leaving them with a fondness for the new friends they've made and a sense of satisfaction and contentment when all is resolved.

Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted.
This was such a beautiful story of forgiveness and healing. Carolyn Brown truly has a gift for transporting the reader into the story and getting you invested in the characters. I felt so many emotions while reading this book. Some moments were exhilarating, while others were sweet and tender. There were also painful and gut wrenching scenes that left me holding my heart. I also enjoyed reading about all the food, especially the southern type. I learned of pecan tassies and brown-sugar fudge, made me SO hungry at times. A very enjoyable read and I highly recommend it.

Thank you NetGalley, Carolyn Brown and Montlake Romance for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
