Two for the Road (Stories in Pairs Book 3) by Ekta R Garg and a Thank You Gift from Ekta!

Two for the Road

Two for the Road by Ekta R Garg
Series: Stories in Pairs Book 3
Kindle Edition, 60 pages
Published July 7th 2015 by Prairie Sky Publishing

Ah, summer. Long days full of warm sunshine and one of the most popular times to travel. But what happens when something throws your travel plans off course?

The First Story, "Excess Baggage": Allison has just come home from a grueling business trip. All she wants to do is spend a quiet weekend at home parked in front of the TV or maybe curled up with a blanket. When a friend calls to ask her for a favor, though, all of Allison’s plans hit rough air.

The Second Story, "Wrong Way": With one daughter married and another in college, Rachel and Jim should be enjoying their time as a couple again. But Jim’s worries about his widowed mother force Rachel into a spur-of-the-moment road trip to check on the old bat. When Jim catches Rachel complaining to a friend, tension will ride with them in the car. Can Rachel make an apology stick?

My thoughts about Two for the Road ~~

Ekta has come up with an interesting concept for her short stories; she writes in pairs. We get two sets of stories, this pair deals with traveling and road trips, Two for the Road. The next set, More from the Road, will be connected to the first one and we will learn a little bit more about the characters and their lives.

The first story is full of great characters, people we have all run across in our lives. Allison's weekend doesn't go as planned when she has to deal with some unexpected guests. She handles it as best she can, even though all she wanted to do was to spend the weekend alone and relax. With this story ending the way it did, I can't wait to see where the next set takes us.

The second story is about a couple who have been married for twenty-seven years. Their idea of how to spend some free time together is not the same, which leads to an argument and lots of tension on their road trip. Again, I can't wait to see where this story is going to go.

I also read Ekta's first set of stories which deal with the heart and I loved them. I love getting to know her characters and then getting a little bit more of the backstory to find out why they are thinking and acting the way they are.

Read my thoughts about the first set of stories.
