I started this book with great hopes and Debbie didn’t let me down. The plot is definitely realistic as it deals with a divorced man trying to get back with his ex-wife.

Author : Debbie Macomber. Hearing that her ex-mother-in-law was planning a road trip across the country to her 50th class reunion in Florida was the perfect excuse to get away and do that thinking. With the addition of her daughter Annie, Ruth and Bethanne set out to see America. Even though Ruth had made plans, the addition of Annie added spontaneity to the group, taking them off the plotted course early in the trip. Helping out in a diner for an old friend of Ruth’s was the fist of may changes to come.

A Turn in the Road book. Debbie Macomber does a magnificent job of creating characters so life-like that some feel like one’s very own friends and acquaintances, while others come across as plain-old ornery people one hopes to avoid. The reader vicariously experiences the thoughts, hopes, fears, and deepest desires of the characters.

Meanwhile, Annie’s out to prove to her onetime boyfriend that she can live a brilliant life without him! So there they are, three women driving across America. They have their maps and their directions ― but even the best-planned journey can take you to a turn in the road. Or lead you to an unexpected encounter ― like the day Bethanne meets a man named Max who really is a hero on a Harley. That’s when Bethanne’s decision becomes a lot harder. Because Grant wants her back, but now there’s Max.... From Seattle’s Blossom Street to the other end of the country, this is a trip that could change three women’s lives.

A Turn in the Road: Blossom Street Book 8 is written by Debbie Macomber. It is a delightful book which looks at forgiveness and second chance. I started this book with great hopes and Debbie didn’t let me down. Her characters are very realistic and sympathetic. The plot is definitely realistic as it deals with a divorced man trying to get back with his ex-wife.
Bethanne Hamlin has been through the wringer during the past six years. Her husband left her for a younger woman. She was left with two children and a house which she had to kept up. She had not finished college and had not worked. She had turned a knack of turning birthday parties into ones to remember so she simply expanded her knack to other parties. Now her business had really taken off. Now, she had an assistant to keep the business running so she was free to accompany her ex-mother-in-law on a trip from Portland, Oregon to Florida. Her Mother-in-law, Ruth, intended on driving cross country to her 50th high school reunion. Both of Ruth’s children objected at the thought of her alone on the road. However, once Bethanne and her daughter, Anne, decided to go, they gave in.
So Bethanne, Ruth, and Anne set out following Ruth’s directions. Soon, they found themselves changing the itinerary to visit a long-time friend of Ruth’s. Detours, changes in plans, run-ins with bikers, and car problems all add up to a fun adventure from Washington State to Vero Beach, Florida.
The book is fun to read and really makes smiles appear as you read. Making decisions which change your life is never easy to make alone but Debbie Macomber makes it seem effortless.

The book was difficult to finish. What made it boring for me was her daughter Annie. She was sixteen at the time of divorce and 6 years later was finishing her MBA. That means she was a super smart kid who finished the bachelors and MBA in 4 years, WOW!! that is brilliant. but then the story contradicts this fact when Annie constantly acts like a six year old. No maturity, no thought for her mother's sufferings, she just wants everything to become the way it was before the divorce. Annie was too whinny, and immature. For me it was waste of my money!!

Should have read the reviews before buying the book!!

I have read just about every book Debbie Macomber has written and really felt like I got to know the characters and would love to have them as friends and neighbors. This book was not good. I got so tired of Annie's whining and pushing her mother to get back with her ex-husband, same words said at each stop of their cross country trip. I would have taken her to the nearest airport and sent her back to Seattle long before they ever got to Vegas. If it had not been mentioned that Annie was finishing her courses for an MBA I would have assumed she was a pre-teen. She called her father constantly to tattle on Bethanne's comings and goings. The only character I liked was Andrew, Annie's brother, and he was not in it that much. Bethanne came off as a wimp in her personal life, albeit a successful businesswoman. Annie was obnoxious. Grant, the wayward husband who wanted back in everyone's life now, was sleek, charming ad nauseum, trying to get Bethanne to give him another chance. Ruth, Grant's mother, was silly, not at all well rounded. The "prom theme" was ridiculous. This story could have been so much better. It actually should have been a short story. To lengthen it there was way too much repetition. It was more like a Danielle Steel novel. I hope Debbie Macomber gets back on track. Her other books were so wonderful.

When I started reading the Blossom series...I started with book 4. Liked it well enough to go back to book 1 and finished through book 10. This particular book I thought about giving up...very predictable...but when I really got into it I found this book to be probably my favorite of the series. Kept me interested in the characters and how it was all going to play out. I could almost see it really happening....like in the movies. Some of the books have a little too much detail in areas so you can read pass a lot of the lines.

I have enjoyed the Blossom series also and this book was very disappointing. I agree with the other reviewers that Annie was too whiny and immature to be going into grad school. She repeated herself, ad nauseum, and tattled like a little child to her father. Grant was too nice to be believed. And please, Max? Where do men that exist in this world? Instead of a hooker with a heart of gold, we got the biker dude with a heart of gold. I've always wanted to be the patient, understanding mother in some novel but Bethanne outdid even a cardboard character. Who would not have lost patience with Annie in about 5 minutes? She would have turned me into a screaming shrew.

I was very disappointed. This book was written on cocktail napkins or something. Not Macombers usual good story.

This was my first Macomber novel. (Goodness knows she's written so many books I didn't know where to start.) She is a great storyteller, one that brings out the emotions of the characters without melodrama, ans not letting the story drag out with to many details. As the story unfolded, you are told more and more and you begin to try and help the characters make the decisions they need to while empathizing with them in their confusion and wanting to do what's right for everyone. A good read about friendship, families, and true love.

This was a great adventure and you never knew what the next turn in the road would bring. I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and you will too!
This was a good story. The writer's ability to describe the environment and things around them is excellent. The characters are colorful and interesting.
