An entertaining, quick read. More about families and for the most part in a positive light, which I always enjoy.

A couple composed of aging music hippies feel like they want a change, but their grown children who are more straight laced then them worry about them. The children worry about their parents for the future because it's obvious that the hippie parents do not. A typical twist, but entertaining none-the-less. The couple also have a late in life daughter who is just finishing high school,...more
I listened to this as an audio book and found it perfect. Easy listening. Humorous. Light hearted. I wanted it all to work out predictably. Feel good chick lit.

One-time hippies and members of a 60s rock band, Lottie and Mac are planning to sell their large and valuable family house and set off for a world-trip. The fly in the ointment is the trio of grown up children who, for various reasons, are less than happy about their feckless parents spending their inheritance.

Good fun.

Liked the concept, enjoyed the characters and it flowed easily. Read this one on my Kindle and only "issue" was that it was not well formatted for the medium. Such is life, didn't change the story; just made it a bit of a challenge in places when the setting, or character pov, changed.

Maybe it's because I am an ageing rocker myself but I really enjoyed this book!
Warm and quietly funny rather4 than laugh out loud
good book, nothing special and it took me a while to get through (compared to my other books ) would recommend for an easy read
A bit boring when you start reading it but it turns out pretty good! Totally worth reading.
