Great question- I would read JEEP TOUR before Driving on the Left as the latter is a sequel of sorts. I would also recommending Guessing at Normal before the soon to be released Second Guessing. Second G is a standalone but some of the main characters were introduced in Guessing at Normal. JEEP TOUR is a sweet, happy ever after while Guessing is a bit edgier. Which ever you start with I hope you enjoy it and I look forward to hearing what you thought. Have a great week!! Gail(less)
