Publisher's Summary

Ren Lewis has seen it all, or so he likes to think. 

He’s encountered every danger known to man. Due to his powers as a Dream Traveler and unstoppable work ethic, he’s experienced more than any human alive. But Ren is about to have a brand new experience. 

He’s being dragged on a family vacation.

When a life-altering event falls on Dahlia and Ren, he agrees to take a break from work and explore the West Coast with his family. But since not everyone in the Lewis clan can dream travel, Ren is forced to endure regular Middling travel in a car. 

This vacation from hell is actually a spiritual excursion meant to pull the demons out of Ren. The most powerful man in the world is stripped from his element and visited by three wise women whose jobs are to make him come to terms with his past, present, and future. 

This is a Christmas Carol retelling using a modern day Scrooge.

A family vacation for Ren. Poor uptight Ren.

This was hilarious, from clothing issues to squabbles. It also had some serious tones as Ren has to deal with some heartbreaking, unimaginable news. We see a whole other side of Ren on this vacation.

I cried, laughed and realized just how much I care about these characters. Noffke has done a splendid job with the world, characters and situations. Placing Ren in situations that involve spontaneity, bonding and adapting was brilliant.

This series has unexpectedly become a favorite, and I am nervous about the final audiobook. Ren can be difficult, but the more you get to know him the more you understand what drives him and what lies beneath all the impossible snark and attitude.

Tim Campbell narrates and has become the voice of Ren and secondary characters like his daughter and Dahlia. Pack your bags and travel with Ren, you won’t be sorry.

A Family Vacation, Surely You're Joking...

Ren Lewis is not a man of a lot of patience. He has carefully built his life the way he wanted it to be and then got thrown the curve balls of having an unknown daughter who was also pregnant. Now Ren is being dragged on a family vacation his partner has put together. Which means he is going to be stuck in a car with his daughter, grandson and partner, going who knows where and then doing who knows what (Alpaca farm anyone)? Will he survive?

This is a great shorter story of the life of Ren. And one of my favorites.

A sweet Ren story?

This is the fourth book in Sarah Noffke’s Ren series, which is part of her Dream Traveler universe. As always, Ren has a filthy mouth and does his best to insult everyone around him, but this time he is forced to face his past and confront his emotions. In the context of a hilarious family vacation where everything seems to go weirdly wrong, Ren and his loved ones all get a chance to learn and grow.

I didn’t realize that this was loosely based on A Christmas Carol before listening, but I definitely got that vibe. I love how Ms. Noffke used visitations from three blithe spirits (or “wise women”) to help Ren deal with his painful emotions so he can have a better future with his family. This story was both hilarious and heartwarming.

As always, I was captivated by Tim Campbell’s narration. His pacing is good and I enjoy his character voices. The voice and British accent he uses for Ren is perfect for Ren’s snarky comments. I definitely recommend the audiobook.

I was given a free copy of this audiobook by the author and volunteered to provide an honest review.

Great novella

A great novella in which Dahlia drags Ren, Adalaide and Lucien on a road trip to hell (if you believe what Ren has to say that is!) Ren's sarcastic humour and general disdain is once again in full flow in this novella and I loved every word of it. You can not help but adore this caustic, but amusing, character as he tries to hide his emotions and fear behind repartee and arrogance. With shades of A Christmas Carol, three women push Ren forward on a journey of self discovery that will hopefully help him find some peace. Wrapped up within the humour, sarcasm and enlightenment, are whispers of future darkness, suspense and sadness.
Tim Campbell does his usual great job of narration. His voice creates images of the story and characters in your mind, which enhances this great story even further.
Ren's story pulls you in, captures your heart, makes you think, and makes you smile. It is touching, humorous and revealing, but it also has an edge of uncertainty and fear threaded within it. I can not wait for the next part of this story.
