I just finished this book and had trouble putting it down. The character development was
great and the story flowed really well. I highly recommend this book as a "great read".

Frank Guidry and Charlotte Roy are well-rounded and fascinating characters. November Road works because of their relationship and backstories. Frank and Charlotte's secrets, need for fresh starts, and attraction keeps the action moving. Barone, the hit man tracking Guidry, kept me in terrified suspense throughout the novel. He's unpredictable, always on the scent, and deadly. I could not put this book down.

A New & Noteworthy pick. Frank Guidry didn’t realize he was dropping off the getaway car for President Kennedy’s assassin. Now he’s a loose end that needs tying up. He uses a runaway wife and her kids for cover, but then he falls in love. This is a thriller that you won’t forget.

You can see the three dots on the map. A man with mob ties who realizes he is expendable. A young mother and her two daughters looking for a new start. The hit man. The tension ratchets up as the dots overlap and converge in unexpected ways like a cat chasing a mouse. Written with a POV for each traveller, you can see how their choices and misfortunes on the road dictate their future. The connection to the Kennedy assassination provides a fascinating backdrop and all are caught in that web. Who will survive to have a future? What sacrifices will be made to make it to the end of the journey?

A road novel that explores relationships between two deep and realized characters - one a fixer for the New Orleans mob and the other an artist and mother fleeing a broken marriage in the aftermath of JFK's death. This is a literary crime thriller with serious depth.
