Wowzers, can we say, 'I need to read this now'? It seems to have everything. Romance, Intrigue, Travel, and most of all, the mystery of a lost family member. Those always seem to be the most interesting, yes? I wish I had been provided just the front cover art so I could make it bigger and focus on more of the details, but I use what I am given. I do like the old timey feel of the cover. That seems to be a popular format for most books now-a-days. Route 66 in the picture, awesome. Just saying.
