Book Review

Bad Traveler by Lola Karns


Bad TravelerBlurb Copied from Back of Book:

Recipes are a way of life for Gwen Jones. Take one single mother, her infant daughter and a business plan for a small town bakery. Combine with an eventful cross-country flight, chance encounter with her college crush and a dash of motion sickness. Stir in a few nuts, or family members, and large quantities of chocolate. Will this recipe be an oven oops, or as delicious as her alma mater’s newest coach?

Having survived an attack in Afghanistan that cost him a leg and a wife, Kyle Collins developed a strategy to find meaning in life. He may be an assistant basketball coach but he refuses to sit on the sidelines. When he runs into the woman whose lips are as unforgettable as her brownies, Kyle decides to spice up Gwen’s recipes.



What I Liked


I liked that anyone can relate to these characters. I don’t have kids and yet Gwen was still someone I identified with. She’s just so average, but in a really great way. Often books build characters into these perfect, unrealistic icons, but Gwen is a heroine that everyone can root for . Of course, Kyle is the same, everyone is going to root for an injured veteran. I also enjoyed the baking aspect and the realism of starting of starting a new business and moving back home, like Gwen does.


What I Didn’t Like


I thoroughly enjoyed 95% of the book, but I won’t lie, I was disappointed in the ending. What I really enjoyed throughout the book was the simple realism, that still managed to be very readable, I couldn’t put the book down. The ending has a twist (which I won’t give away) but to me it just seemed very sudden and forced. I just thought it was an external conflict we didn’t need versus focusing on the internal conflict between them. The last line (I won’t give that away either) was a line from a very famous book from an author that I’m a huge fan of, so I just thought it was disappointing not to have an original line that was unique to the two characters in the book versus something so well known to end Gwen and Kyle’s story.


Final Verdict

It was less of a travel story than I thought it was going to be, but I still really enjoyed it. I read it in two days so it’s definitely very readable. I recommend this book to anyone that likes small-town romances or any new mom themed reads. Even though I wasn’t a fan of the ending, I think that most people probably will like the twist of action.
