A short while ago I read and reviewed another book in this Class of '85 series, titled After All These Years, and I was positively charmed by the story and the characters. I was excited, therefore, when I got the opportunity to read and review Lonely Road To You.
Lonely Road to you held my interest and was an enjoyable read but it just did not seem to have quite the sparkle that so enraptured me while reading After All These Years. Kate and Tyler were likable and I wanted to see them click but I would have liked to have been given a fuller glimpse into past incidents and entanglements that really shaped them into the people they are now. This story seemed less complex and rather more straight-forward than the previous one; it certainly entertains but is not as haunting or memorable as I hoped it would be.
Kate Abbott isn’t looking for excitement and is perfectly content with the secure life she’s built in Seattle, even if her son thinks she’s in an uninspired rut. Former rock star Tyler North has no intention of shaking up his life on the Montana ranch where he fled years before to escape the ravages of fame and fortune. Neither plan to attend their 25 year high school reunion in Summerville, but fate throws them together on a lonely road, leading them on a journey of discovery.
From the majesty of Yellowstone to the shores of Lake Ontario, Kate and Tyler fight unexpected attractions and old insecurities. Their journey is full of surprises and odd twists. From bison and bears to a deep crevasse and a crazy old man, they work together to overcome the obstacles in their path. But will these two opposites be able to put aside fear of change and rejection to take a chance on the promise of love?
