What makes you happy?

That was the question Emery Reed asked me the day we met, and I couldn’t give him a single answer. I could have said my dog, or my books, or yoga — but I just stared.

And then, I got in his car.

It was crazy to take a road trip with a stranger, but after years of standing still, he was my one-way ticket to a new life, and I wasn’t going to miss it.

We shared the same space, the same car, the same hotel room — and still, we were strangers. One day we’d be laughing, the next, we wouldn’t speak. Emery was surrounded by impenetrable walls, but I wanted in.

Discovering his journal changed everything.

I read his thoughts, words not meant for anyone’s eyes, and the more I learned about him, the harder I fell. It turned out nothing made Emery Reed happy, and I wanted to change that.

I earned his trust by violating his privacy, and as wrong as it was, it worked — until one entry revealed a darkness I never knew existed, a timer I never knew was ticking.

Suddenly, what made me happy was saving Emery from himself. I just didn’t know if I could.

MY REVIEW

 

‘What makes you happy?’

Those words would change life as Cooper had always known it. A thought provoking sentence that would bring Emery and Cooper together on their travels. Two complete strangers that crossed paths at the diner that Cooper was working in. As often as Cooper dreamed of a better life outside of the confines of Alabama, the offer was too unbelievable to pass up.

How unconventional can it be to leave with a stranger to embark upon the journey of a lifetime?? Cooper asked herself this question over and over. The fact that Emery came into her life at that moment gave Cooper the perspective to see past the fear. A chance of a lifetime that shouldn’t be ignored.

So the journey begins…..a road trip of sorts. One that will change the way that Cooper and Emery look upon life. The road traveled……well….that’s the interesting part!!

On The Way To You is a book about second chances, loss, self discovery, and the road that you must travel for love. Don’t think this is your typical road trip…..It’s a book that centers around mental illness and the lengths that we go to for happiness. A plot that is twisted with heartache and redemption.

While finding myself at a loss to describe this novel without giving away any of the plot, I discovered one phrase that kept repeating in my head. Kandi Steiner has mastered writing unique story plots that revolve around real LIFE!!! Each tattered moment woven with words that will draw you deeper within the story. Evoking emotions that are very hard to ignore. Creating a world that is as realistic as the words upon the pages. All I can say is that you can’t help but FEEL all of the loneliness, longing, and love that seeps from this book. Make sure you add it to your list of must read books!!

 

 

 

 

About Kandi Steiner

Kandi Steiner is a Creative Writing and Advertising/Public Relations graduate from the University of Central Florida living in Tampa with her husband. Kandi works full time as a social media specialist, but also works part time as a Zumba fitness instructor and blackjack dealer.

Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies).

When Kandi isn’t working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.
