Right of Way

Review

Right of Way

Peyton met Jace while visting her family for the holidays. There was a definite connection between the two. When Peyton went back home, they stayed in contact and developed some genuine feelings for one another. All was great until the day it stopped. Then there were no calls, no texts, no emails and no explanations.

"Barnholdt presents appealing characters with a believable story...RIGHT OF WAY is a fun summer page turner that many readers are bound to enjoy."

When Peyton and Jace meet up again at her uncle’s wedding, they are somewhat bitter. This does not stop them from going on a road trip that’s supposed to end with Peyton back home in Connecticut. Jace doesn’t know that Peyton isn’t planning on going all the way home or what exactly she is running away from. Peyton doesn’t know the full extent of the mess Jace has caused by going on the road trip. The pair embarks on this journey not quite knowing what to expect, considering they aren’t on the best of terms. As they bicker and banter, they begin to learn more about each other and what went wrong in their relationship.

RIGHT OF WAY is a road trip romance told from different perspectives. Barnholdt has a unique style that gives readers not only a look at both sides of the story, but also a look at the past as well as the present. It is not told in the traditional sequence of events. Barnholdt has flashbacks sprinkled throughout the story in the present.

Barnholdt presents appealing characters with a believable story. Peyton and Jace have a number of misunderstandings and other problems they are forced to overcome and grow from. They are characters that are, for the most part, relatable. Barnholdt’s fans will enjoy getting to know her new characters and seeing some characters from her novel, TWO-WAY STREET. RIGHT OF WAY is a fun summer page turner that many readers are bound to enjoy.
