Publisher's Summary

Aren't detours supposed to have big warning signs? 

So why do life's detours come out of the blue and hit so hard? 

It's been a year since they opened the bed-and-breakfast for Railfans in the small town of Chancey, and the Jessups feel as if they've always lived in the Georgia Mountains. After a hard summer, Carolina is looking forward to the cooler temperatures of autumn and the routine of the school year. However...unplanned detours mean more family in town, families pulling apart at the seams, and just plain ol' heartache. 

Unplanned detours mean moonshine, chocolate pie, and blue gingham on the town square. 

Unplanned detours mean sleepless nights, sweet surprises, and hesitant hope.

Unplanned detours mean, well, they mean life.

A lot of shockers come to light. Graffiti artist in town, Jackson's brother's girlfriend comes to town , more drama with Rose, Will , and Anna,. This small town is rabid with gossip and some of it is true!!! I was sad to lose a core character and a voice of reason, but shocked with some secrets spilled. Family continues to use Carolina's house like anopen door policy to take advantage of. Some surprising changes in status and some moves. Doormat spineless Caro continues. Zoey was being taken advantage of and taken for granted, so now I hope she gets the love and attention she needs. I look forward to more cray cray. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a good job.
