Carrie thinks she's got it all figured out. An upcoming wedding, a well planned out life. And then the unthinkable happens. Her fiancé decides that they aren't working anymore and ends it, just like that. The breakup came out of nowhere. There were no signs or hints that it was coming. It's time for Carrie to pull herself together and move on.

In this funny, lighthearted romance, Carrie takes an adventurous path to self discovery. Starting over isn't easy, but this woman is winging it quite well....for the most part. There was that little incident that led her to meeting Matt Landor for the first time. First impressions are everything, and she didn't make the best one.

In many instances, Matt and Carrie get on one another's nerves. A road trip forces the two to bond a little more. Who knew what that would eventually lead to? Their stubborn pride could cost the two real love if they aren't careful.

Carrie Goes Off The Map is enjoyable, enlightening, and fun. The author creates believable characters that the reader will love or or dislike, depending on their role in the story. The path to happily ever after for Carrie and Matt takes readers on a roller coaster ride of ups and downs, memorable moments, and along the way will meet some charismatic characters that leave their mark in this well crafted novel. Set in various places, including some of Europe, the pacing flows smoothly from one thing to the next.

If you enjoy a contemporary novel that has the high potential to leave a smile on your face after the last page is read, then don't miss out on a chance to read this story. Hurry and get yourself a copy.
