Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "On the road to love, you don't need a GPS... Carla Black's life motto is "here for a good time, not for a long time." She's been traveling the world on her own in her vintage Jeep Wrangler for nearly a decade, stopping only long enough to replenish her adventure fund. She doesn't do love and she doesn't ever go home. Eamon Sullivan is a modern-day cartographer who creates digital maps. His work helps people find their way, but he's the one who's lost his sense of direction. He's unhappy at work, recently dumped, and his one big dream is stalled out-literally. Fate throws them together when Carla arrives in Dublin for her best friend's wedding and Eamon is tasked with picking her up from the airport. But what should be a simple drive across Ireland quickly becomes complicated with chemistry-filled detours, unexpected feelings, and a chance at love - if only they choose it"--

    *Starred Review* Raised by her single schoolteacher father, uninhibited Carla has spent a good part of each year traveling the wild parts of the Americas and beyond. When she's home, she works in a Hooter's-like, pirate-themed bar. Flying to Ireland to be maid of honor in her best friend's wedding is a different kind of trip. She expects to be picked up at the airport by the uptight best man, but instead, Eamon arranges to meet her at a bar, and they end up in bed. The next day, driving across Ireland, they take some adventurous detours involving camping and being terrorized by a bull before joining his large family and her friends, characters from Doller's The Float Plan (2021) and Suite Spot (2022). Sizzling sex and a sharp focus on the measured building of the relationship between Eamon and Carla, from a cute meet to congenial travel buddies, from deep friendship to love, are paired to perfection, while sensitive territory is explored in Carla's relationship with her Vietnam veteran dad who has Alzheimer's. Doller makes complex characters in complicated relationships come to totally convincing life as she makes each novel better than the one before it. Copyright 2023 Booklist Reviews.
