Around the Bend
by Shirley Jump

Thelma and Louise they’re not.

First of all, Hilary and Rosemary Delaney are not friends—worse, they’re mother and daughter. Hilary’s a wayward thirty-something running from a marriage proposal, and Rosemary’s her disapproving mother, a retired lawyer who can’t drive and won’t fly.

So they’re driving together across country.

In a cherry-red Mustang.

With a potbellied pig named Reginald, and a life-size cutout of Rosemary’s late husband.

Should be a fun trip.

As the miles tick by, Hilary ponders why the word “marriage” has her so terrified and finds she’s got a lot to learn—about her mother, love and life in general. Together, Hilary and Rosemary will discover what’s around the bend...if they don’t drive each other crazy, or drive off a cliff first.

Includes the bonus book The Other Wife.
