MILES FROM WHERE WE STARTED by Cynthia Ruchti, Reviewed by Rebecca Maney

"Marriage shouldn't be this hard. Ending one shouldn't either."
Mallory and Connor Duncan are on the cusp of ending their less-than-one-year marriage for reasons that defy explanation and yet make perfect sense . . . . to one of them. However, before they can make it official, Connor convinces Mallory to take a road trip; albeit not just any road trip, but one utilizing an impossibly small travel space and a not-so-surprisingly annoying eleven year old at- risk youth; all while video-blogging their experience for one of Connor's hope-they'll-be clients.

"Just add humans and the adventure begins?" Or will just adding humans bring their adventure to a tragic halt? One thing is for sure, when it's all said and done, they will be "miles from where they started."

Admittedly, this story took a little getting used to, in the beginning. But as the hash marks continued down the highway, these characters managed to comfortably worm their way inside my heart.

BackCover Blurb:
These no-longer-newlyweds want out of this road trip--and their marriage. Too bad they can't find the off-ramp.

Weeks away from their one-year anniversary, Mallory and Connor Duncan can't even agree on how to end their marriage. But when a last-minute crisis lands them on a three-thousand-mile road trip together, Mallory wonders if their story may not be over after all.

The trip begins to unravel before the key is even in the ignition, and an at-risk, trouble-seeking missile of an eleven-year-old is unexpectedly launched into their travel plans. Close quarters get even tighter, and the couple believes this whole experience will spell disaster.

But as new challenges pop up around each bend, Mallory and Connor are surprised by the strengths they see in one another--and how they complement each other. Their first year of marriage hasn't been the arm-in-arm togetherness they expected . . . but can they find a new beginning when the road ends?
