Behind the Story: Dallas
My last Roadtrip Romance book was set in several different areas, but this one is different. Roadtrip for Two isn't supposed to be a roadtrip at first.
If you remember at the end of the first book, Bree and Nathan's friends are talking them into taking their honeymoon cruise despite the engagement being called off. And they're not telling the other one, so it will be a surprise when they both show up on the same ship.
No one was expecting a hurricane to mess things up. So, when Bree and Nathan run into each other in the Dallas airport ... and get stranded by bad weather ... plans change.
Since my Bree is someone who loves to explore new places, she can't resist the opportunity. Nathan ... well, he tags along because he doesn't think she should be in a city alone.
Dallas is not normally a place you'd automatically think of when doing a roadtrip, but circumstances led them there so there is where they will be in the story. Good thing I've explored parts and pieces of Dallas over the years so my characters would know where to go. ;)
They don't hit all the normal places you might consider: no Six Flags, baseball game, aquarium, or places like that. But they do see the Sixth Floor Museum (where Kennedy was shot), the arboretum, the farmer's market, a park, Deep Ellum, and Reunion Tower. Not too bad considering they weren't even supposed to be there.
Of course, there are some different foods, too, but not as much associated with the place as in my first book. Still, I think they're going to have a fun trip. What do you think?
Have you been to Dallas? Where was your favorite place to visit?
This Roadtrip launches on Tuesday next week! It's on pre-order right now, and you can save a dollar on the ebook if you order before the 13th. I'd love for you to come along with Bree and Nathan as they explore Dallas as well as what went wrong in their relationship.
Watch my social media this weekend for sneak peeks of the first three chapters.

This is a place for me to tell you about what I'm writing, talk about the process or where some of my ideas came from, or even have other authors come in and talk about their books.
