From #1 Bestselling Author Penny Vincenzi
The Best of Times is “the perfect summer read.” (Parade)
Everything can change in the blink of an eye…. On an ordinary afternoon, a truck suddenly swerves across five lanes of traffic, creating a tangle of chaos and confusion. Filled with suspense, romance, and more twists than a country highway, The Best of Times proves once again why Penny Vincenzi is the queen of happy endings.
“Penny is the doyenne of the modern blockbuster.” —Glamour
Ten Runners-Up will each receive copies of the books.
