Two friends go on an antiquing roadtrip and get more than they bargained for when they pick up a third, stranded woman in this hilarious and heartwarming new novel  Dara, savvy in business but not so savvy in love, has unexpectedly found success running a monthly tag sale after losing her job and inheriting her uncle's farmette in Maryland.  Colleen, feeling underappreciated and in a rut with her husband and kids, rents a stall at Dara's tag sale, and now the two women are embarking on a two-week antiquing/thrift shopping roadtrip to Florida in the hopes of finding some diamonds in the rough to fix up and sell.  However, things take an unexpected turn when they meet Jonnie, a mousy woman down on her luck in a big way, at a North Carolina diner.  They offer her a ride with them to Florida, but they soon learn Jonnie has been hiding a few key facts:  Jonnie has poisoned her abusive husband, and now she's on the run.  And Dara and Colleen are accessories after the fact.   Three women, two weeks, one truck: sometimes life doesn't take you in the direction you expect.

I picked this audio book up on a whim because I thought the title sounded like so much fun! It did not disappoint and I enjoyed the book, actually finding myself laughing out loud at several points. When Colleen, an antiques entrepreneur, decides to take a buying road trip, she is saddled with her 16 year old troubled niece. Along the way they meet up with her best friend from college. This is a road trip where the past is laid to rest and new ground is broken for the future. An ideal audio book to listen to in the car for a 'girls' road trip!
