You've read the publishers blurb, but that can't possibly convey the sheer enjoyability of this book, it's a wonderful story, sheer entertainment, I just love it that in this ageist world of the young and beautiful, old people come out on top!

This is a story about love, romance, respect and humor! If you found Thelma and Louise funny, you will find this book even funnier. This love story is about 2 people in their 70s that found each other and then the families decide they are going to split them up. Velma and Louie take off for California and lead the cops and families on a cross country chase. Good story and good supporting cast with loads of laughs. I loved the character Jack Bunn, what a great guy!

A delightful tale of the power of love. Carole Bellacera writes a charming and funny novel of how love will prevail no matter how old you are. I recommend it to anyone and everyone.
