Waiting on Wednesday - 4/2

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  My pick for this week is:

Driving with the Top Down by Beth Harbison
Pub date: August 5, 2014

I found this one while searching through new books related to Nancy Thayer, Elin Hilderbrand, and some others. Funny enough I was looking at all of the books mentioned in Jill's Summer Beach Book Preview before I even saw it. So it sounds like we are all starting to think along the same line!  I am not familiar with the author, but it sounds like a great book.

Dara, savvy in business but not so savvy in love, has unexpectedly found success running a monthly tag sale after losing her job and inheriting her uncle’s farmette in Maryland.  Colleen, feeling underappreciated and in a rut with her husband and kids, rents a stall at Dara’s tag sale, and now the two women are embarking on a two-week antiquing/thrift shopping roadtrip to Florida in the hopes of finding some diamonds in the rough to fix up and sell.  However, things take an unexpected turn when they meet Jonnie, a mousy woman down on her luck in a big way, at a North Carolina diner.  They offer her a ride with them to Florida, but they soon learn Jonnie has been hiding a few key facts:  Jonnie has poisoned her abusive husband, and now she’s on the run.  And Dara and Colleen are accessories after the fact…
Three women, two weeks, one truck: sometimes life doesn't take you in the direction you Driving with the Top Down by Beth Harbison.
What are you waiting on this week?
