An unforgettable and breathtaking novel of love, loss, and the unexpected routes that life takes from Amazon Charts and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Kerry Lonsdale.
With her deceased sister’s Route 66 bucket list in hand, California girl Joy Evers sets out on a cross-country road trip to meet up with her fiancé, checking off the bullets along the way.
Singer-songwriter Dylan Westfield has a serious case of wanderlust and a broken-down car. Stuck at a diner between LA and Flagstaff, he meets Joy, his complete opposite. She’s energetic. He’s moody. She’s by the book. He’s spontaneous. She believes in love at first sight. He thinks love is a complicated mess. But Joy has a brand-new convertible.
They strike a deal. She’ll drive him to New York. He’ll pay for gas. Only three rules apply: no exchanging of last names; what happens on the road, stays on the road; and if one of them wants to take a side trip, they both must agree.
A heart-stirring love story that spans a decade, Side Trip explores what-if. What if Joy and Dylan had exchanged last names? What if he’d told her she made him believe love was worth the risk? And what if they hadn’t made that second deal when they couldn’t say goodbye?

El día de nuestra boda, mi prometido, James, llegó a la iglesia en un féretro…
Aimee es una ayudante de cocina con la receta perfecta para una vida ideal: casarse con James, su amor desde la infancia, tener hijos y comprar el restaurante de sus padres para seguir el negocio familiar. Sin embargo, cuando él desaparece repentinamente en un accidente en alta mar, el suflé de aquel futuro bien horneado se desinfla en un instante.
Sumida en el desconsuelo, y mientras esboza cómo reconstruir su vida, empezará a indagar sobre la desgracia ocurrida. Lo que descubrirá es un mar de secretos que la llevará a cuestionarse todo aquello que construyeron juntos. Solo a lo lejos, en el horizonte, se vislumbra una verdad que podría liberarla... o bien destrozarla para siempre.
Le robaron su vida y sus recuerdos; ahora quiere recuperarlos.
Dos meses antes de su boda, el financiero James Donato viaja a México siguiendo a su hermano Phil, del que sospecha que blanquea capitales. Pero James desaparece en extrañas circunstancias en alta mar y finalmente es declarado muerto. Seis años y medio más tarde, sale del estado de fuga disociativa en el que ha estado viviendo en Oaxaca, bajo el nombre de Carlos Domínguez, artista, viudo y padre de dos niños, sin recordar nada de su anterior existencia. Al otro lado de la frontera, su antigua prometida, su amor desde la infancia, ha pasado página: se ha casado y tiene una hija.
James queda destrozado al empezar a recordar y comprender que ha dejado atrás toda una vida. Además, su hermano está a punto de salir de la cárcel decidido a encontrarlo, pues presenció algo en México que podría mandarlo de nuevo a prisión. James deberá huir con sus hijos a Hawái, donde intentará desentrañar el misterio de su identidad. Pero cuando no puedes contar con tu memoria, ¿cómo saber en quién confiar?
Aimée mène la vie dont elle a toujours rêvé : elle s’apprête à épouser son amour d’enfance, à fonder une famille et à reprendre les rênes du restaurant familial. Mais tout s’effondre lorsque son fiancé James disparaît brutalement dans un accident de bateau. Au lieu de marcher vers l’autel, Aimée suit le cercueil de celui qui aurait dû, ce jour-là, devenir son mari.
Alors qu’elle se bat pour reconstruire sa vie, Aimée commence à s’interroger sur les circonstances de la disparition de James. Elle plonge alors dans un océan de secrets qui l’amène à remettre en question toute leur histoire commune. Faire remonter la vérité à la surface pourrait libérer Aimée… ou la briser à jamais.
Premier roman lumineux aux rebondissements inattendus, La Vie dont nous rêvions explore la souffrance entourant la perte d’un être aimé, l’euphorie de retrouver l’amour et les répercussions des secrets que nous cachent les personnes qui nous sont chères.
