"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 expect...in Driving with the Top Down by Beth Harbison"-- Provided by publisher.

Quick read if a little predictable, but when you're cuddled up next to the fire it's a fun read. I was surprised, though, at the editing errors. Was there no proofreader?

I have no idea where the description in this library listing came from -- certainly not from the book I read. There was a Colleen who has only one kid and the others aren't in this book. I did like the story I read, about Colleen who took a road trip south to look for items to clean up, paint, sell through her home business. Her niece Tamara ended up going with her. They did run into someone in a diner along the way; it was Colleen's old college best friend Bitty. There are some great bits in this book as each character reveals more about her inner self as they travel along. The ending wraps up a bit too smoothly (and predictable) for me, yet it was happy, and I am a sucker for happy endings. This is a fast read and fun.
