Lovely author of romantic romps gives us a slice of her own romantic escapades. It started as a bit of a laugh and then became a challenge to visit all the sexy sounding towns in America looking for love … well … men, perhaps. I loved it, a unique travel book with lots of laughs, sticky situations and interesting people, which is highly entertaining.
'If adventures do not befall a young lady in her own village, she must seek them abroad' Jane Austen
Belinda Jones loves America. Her best friend, Emily O'Neill, loves men. So what better way to celebrate their friendship than to combine their two greatest passions in an astonishing road trip with one aim in mind: to embrace American culture - and any willing men they find along the way. And so, Belinda and Emily set off to pursue their dreams in the most romantic-sounding locations they could find: from Kissimmee (Florida) to Eden (Texas), from Cazenovia (New York) to Intercourse (Pennsylvania), they were women on a mission. The Thelma and Louise of Love. They made front-page headlines, flirted their way out of a night in a prison cell with Judge Butch, they even chatted up a Jehovah's Witness, all in the name of love. But did they find the American Dream Guy?
