Double Heart Diner by Annie Jones
Route 66 Trilogy Book 1
When recluse CEO Padgett Jett Murphy meets Georgia Darling it is like watching Lucy Ricardo in action. Jett had run his business from his ivory tower without ever really being involved. Now some nameless/faceless employee has resigned and threatened to go to the press if he would not change his mind about knocking down so old greasy spoon he planned on buying to resell for a profit, it's what he does. Suddenly she's not nameless or faceless but she is a redheaded loaded cannon. From the moment he tries to intercept her at the restaurant she's meeting a reporter his life is no longer the quiet unattached place it has been.
Georgia always asked herself two questions when facing a dilemma. What would God want me to do? And if no clear answer came she would wonder what Lucy Ricardo would do. And just like Lucy it seemed she would end up in a mess. That's how Mr. Murphy finds her while she is trying to escape the restaurant. Dressed as a bus boy and heading towards the front door until calamity strikes.
Georgia and Jett end up heading to the Double Heart down Route 66 with her trying to convince him to save the diner. They have to outrun the reporter, Rod Campbell, who wants any dirt on the Jett who has a way of staying out of the public eye. They are in her old truck that she has named Truvie. Truvie is not in very good shape, uncomfortable to ride in and needs much coaxing to keep going. Join Jett and Georgia on their adventure from Chicago to the Double Heart Diner in Texas. The first book in what looks to be a fun series.
