Review:

Get ready to join a cross-country tank of laughs in Diann Huntís novel, RV There Yet? What plot could offer more fun? Three middle-aged women crammed together in an old Winnebago for two weeks of non-stop adventure. Diann Huntís playful narrative is a hoot.

Millie, Lydia, and DeDe have been friends since childhood; they met at Christian youth camp. Through the years, theyíve kept in touch, and now in mid-life discover itís time to reconnect. Coinciding with DeDeís 50th birthday, the three women journey back in time to help restore the camp, which is in desperate need of help to stay open.

As they roadtrip by RV, they encounter hilarious obstacles, always managing to wrangle a way out. Their adventures unfold through the eyes of DeDe, a successful businesswoman who sells gourmet chocolates and stays in shape through dedication to pilates. Never married, she wonders if sheíll ever meet her Prince Charming.

Lydia and Millie also find themselves alone again, carrying baggage from former marriages. Is it too late in mid-life to start over? The plot thickens as old flames from their youth also show up for the camp alumni reunion.

Reading this made me want to hop in an RV and travel around the country, eating Símores and swapping stories with fellow campers. The novel does more than entertain. We see how the word of Christ dwells richly in these oh-so-real women, as eternal hope continues to transform and renew life, love, and friendship. --Heather Ivester, Christian Book Previews.com

Book Jacket:

Life's a journey. Midlife's an adventure. But two weeks in a RV with the hot-flash sisters could drive anyone over the hill.

Dede signed on for this cross-country RV trip selflessly, for Millie and Lydia's sakes. Besides, she needed to get her mind off a love gone wrong and a demanding gourmet chocolates business. And it's for a good cause--sprucing up the old summer camp in Colorado to save it from closing. It will be a fun, memorable last hurrah before she turns fifty. Right?

But Dede's more of a luxury hotel kind of girl. She likes mints on plumped pillows and room service. Bunking with friends in a motor home the size of a phone booth is not her style. And with the mysterious biker gang and a stalking ex-boyfriend, the RV seems to be shrinking.

Still, with friends, a boutiful supply of truffles, and a boy from her past who has aged very well, this trip might be the best vacation ever!

A hilarious story that celebrates the life in midlife--even the occasional moose and mosquitoes--and the surprising grace of God.
