Luella Farrow has spent decades in the music business, and the larger-than-life country singer should be celebrating, but she can’t bear to watch the lives of her three daughters implode: Adele is so stressed she can hardly breathe, Hattie is enduring a scandalous divorce, and Raegan has lost out on a major publishing contract. When Luella parks a vintage metallic gold tour bus in the driveway and announces a surprise cross-country road trip, Raegan isn’t sure any of them will survive the summer. The cute bus driver, Micah Davenport, is a momentary distraction, but his mother’s journals from Luella’s first tour might reveal the biggest family secrets of all. As the bus travels through the South in the dead of summer, storms both literal and figurative threaten to derail everyone’s plans.
VERDICT Deese’s (The Words We Lost) latest is a beautiful story of faith, family, and the power of forgiveness. This second installment in the “Fog Harbor” series can be read as a stand-alone and will appeal to women’s fiction readers as a Dolly Parton–esque tale of hard-won fame. Suggest to fans of Charles Martin and Amanda Cox.
