Book beginning:

Do what you like, Shelby Sloane, the bartered bride had said to me, smiling like an enigma, just remember: all roads lead to where you stand.
Back then I said, what does that mean?
This morning I knew. It was the morning of the third day I had been trapped in a room, two miles from the main drag of the Reno strip in a place called “Motel.”

I stood alone, broke, and in Reno.

Page 56:
"So we're off," Gina said. "Are you excited?"
"Sure," I said.

Sounds interesting! I wonder why and how Gina manages to derail Shelby's plans.

I am very curious now! I can't imagine anything worse than being trapped in a room in a place called "Motel"...not when adventure in that yellow Mustang was the plan. Thanks for sharing, and here's mine: “THE MISSING”

I'm curious what happens when she finally gets out of that room.

Road trip! I'm curious about the mishaps that led her to "Motel." Sounds like a fun story.

I like the yellow mustang contrasting with the bright blue sky on the cover.

Fun meme post, Harvee! This sounds like a good book about the early 1980s.
Have a safe and happy New Year!
