Looking in your teenage daughter's purse is never a good idea.
After all, it ended up with Carolina Jessup opening a bed & breakfast for railroad fanatics in a tiny Georgia mountain town. Carolina knows all about, and hates, small towns. How did she end up leaving her wonderful Atlanta suburbs behind while making her husband's dreams come true?
The town bully (who wears a lavender skirt and white gloves), an endless parade of teenagers through her house, and everybody's talk about a ghost have Carolina looking for an escape, or at least a way to move back home. Instead, she's front and center for all of Chancey's small town gossip.
Unlike back home in the suburbs with privacy fences and automatic garage doors, everybody in Chancey thinks your business is their business and they all love the newest Chancey business. The B&B hosts a Senate candidate, a tea for the county fair beauty contestants, and railroad nuts who sit out by the tracks and record the sound of a train going by. Yet, nobody believes Carolina prefers the 'burbs.
Oh, yeah, and if you just ignore a ghost, will it go away?

Having been born in a small town, then living in the suburbs and now a large city, I can attest to the uniqueness of small town living. Next Stop, Chancey perfectly captured the advantages and drawbacks with characters that were quintessentially small town. With great writing and humor, I was drawn in to the story of Caroline and her family. Being a long listen, pacing is important to keep the listener engaged and the narrator did a great job both with moving the story along and bringing the characters to life. Overall, a thoroughly enjoyable experience and I would highly recommend Next Stop, Chancey. Now grab a sweet tea and have a listen for yourself.
I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. This review is my honest opinion.
