Synopsis: What do you get when six retirees attend an orientation trip before moving into Cedar Branch Retirement Community? A week of outlandish fiasco’s, hilarious revenge, memorable tears, and most important . . . laughter. Derrick St. Clair, a social worker for CBC, has led many trips for the eccentric community but never experienced a trip like this. One thing, of many, that Derrick didn’t expect was to fall in love with co-worker Katlyn Rose and while his mind is occupied the six seniors plan their own trip from stealing the van to seeking revenge on three disrespectful young men.
With a lady’s man from Manhattan, two kooky sisters from Arkansas, a grumpy husband from Alabama, and a quiet little man from Atlanta this week is one for the books. So take a trip with Cedar Branch and fall in love with the characters that now reside in the number one retirement community in the south. Who knows, you just might make plans to move in.
Review: This is a super fun book. I look forward to future stories in this series and getting to know more about this group. I really enjoyed a group of characters who are mostly older folks in a retirement community (although the employees are, naturally, younger). I'm not quite of that age yet, but I'm getting there. :)
Rating: Four stars
About the author
After graduating from high school in 1989 and attending one year at NLU I decided (actually my parents did) I wasn’t ready for college, so I did what every 19-year-old kid does….I moved to the Marshall Islands in the mid pacific. After a few years, I came home, met my wife and settled down for a short bit. I worked construction, opening my own sporting goods store, became a full-time fireman, opened a candle manufacturing company, and even rodeo for a short term. Just not at the same time. In 2003 we moved to Franklin TN where I sold fire trucks until 2010 and moved to Arkansas. Since here in the Ozark Mountains, I have written eight novels and am currently working on my ninth, a new adult novel. So that’s me in a quick whirlwind. And yes, if you check out my website or social media you will see me with our pet raccoons, Tucker and Otter.
