The Mother Road 


The Mother Road by Meghan Quinn 




Never in a million years would I have pictured myself as an axe-wielding, dragon lady, chopping up multi-colored flannel shirts into my very own plaid mulch. But here I am, chopping away my frustrations.

It all started when my brother, Paul, convinced me to go on one last family road trip across the Mother Road with him and my dad.. Just like old times, right? Wrong. What Paul fails to mention is his best man, Porter, will be joining us, who just so happens to be my childhood crush and the man who broke my heart four years ago.

What is supposed to be a fun, family bonding experience across Route 66 turns into a war of pranks, awkward moments and bathrooms full of dirty flannel shirts and day old beard clippings. Paul’s know-it-all attitude and Porter’s devilish charm brings me to the brink of my sanity on my seven day trek across the United States with three bearded men in a small 1980’s RV.




4 out of 5 stars


This was so fun to read, totally entertaining! It had some awesome laugh out loud moments and I loved the humor. It was just so fun to read!


I enjoyed the story of Marley and Porter coming together, learning their history and watching their friendship and relationship grow. There was a nice build happening between the two. I liked the bits of animosity and verbal sparring as well. There was a nice amount of chemistry and heat too really bringing them together.


I liked the secondary characters a lot. I thought her dad was spectacular. The family dynamic the McMann’s have is awesome and I loved that sibling rivalry she has going on with her brother. The bickering and comebacks between the two were great. I loved the family’s story of why they were taking the trip on the Mother Road and how special it was to all of them. There were so many little things I enjoyed that made it a great story.


The humor, yes it totally made me laugh, but it could be juvenile, potty mouth type of humor but it totally spoke to the 12 year old in me. Some of it was a bit over the top but I just went with it and kept chuckling all the way through. There were some really touching moments woven in and I think it helped to balance it out a bit.


I loved the storyline. I liked the details and character development though I did think some parts where a drawn out. It was the overall storyline line and laugh out loud moments that sold me though.


Totally amusing, enjoyable read with a great romance mixed in. :-)
