Publisher's Summary

The beautiful young widow of the president of the United States thought she was free of the White House, but circumstances have forced her back into the role of First Lady. She's made up her mind to escape, if only for a few days, so she can live the life of an ordinary person. An entire nation is searching for her, but the First Lady is in the last place anyone would think to look: in the company of a seductive stranger whose charm and good looks are awakening the forgotten woman within. With two adorable little orphaned girls along for the ride, they're heading out across the heartland, chasing their own American Dream on a wild journey of love, adventure, and glorious rebirth.

Critic Reviews

"Another of Phillips' brilliant romantic romps, deftly combining laughter and love with real women's issues and served up with a sophisticated flair. Creative plotting adds sparkle, and entertaining, well-drawn secondary characters round out the novel, but it is the growing, healing relationship between the protagonists and how they finally form a family that touches the heartstrings and makes this contemporary romance an unforgettable read.

Cute, funny story with very likable characters. Just what you'd expect from vintage SEP! And nobody narrates like Anna Fields. She was truly a master at her craft.

another SEP winner

After reading the review of the book on All About Romance, I wasn't expecting to love this one as much as I did - but I think this is my favorite SEP story! Of all her characters, I found Mat and Nealy two of the most down-to-earth and believable, without the true over-the-top quirkiness of some of her other stories.

Anna Fields' performance is, as always, excellent. And yeah, I found myself grinning like a fool at the epilogue - think it's not possible?? Well, I think it is!

If you're already an SEP fan, I recommend it - and if you are not yet acquainted with this author, I HIGHLY recommend it as enjoyable introduction. She has a way of spinning a tale that is funny, sweet and romantic, with laugh out loud moments - the perfect escapist read/listen.
