Traveling Light by Lynne Branard

Winning the bid for an unclaimed storage unit wasn't Alissa's favorite prize, but what she found inside ​actually changed her life.

Alissa works for a local newspaper in North Carolina owned by her father and impulsively decides that she is going to take a road trip to ​New Mexico to return Roger Hart's ashes​ that were in the storage unit to his family.

Alissa begins her journey with the ashes and her dog.  When she stops at a restaurant and meets Blossom, her road trip and her life ​have an added passenger and some added changes.

TRAVELING LIGHT is a sweet, lighthearted read and a read that will make you think about your own life and decisions you make and have made.

I enjoyed Alissa because she was a good person, and I really enjoyed Blossom.  Blossom had the perfect name because she just brightened up any place she was and helped Alissa see her life in a different perspective.

TRAVELING LIGHT is a book to read when you need to be uplifted, when you need to hear good comments about mankind, ​and when you  just need a change of pace that comes with beautiful, descriptive writing and marvelous characters.

Enjoy TRAVELING LIGHT if you read it.  It even has some sweet romances included.  :)   5/5​

This book was given to me free of charge and without compensation by the publisher in return for an honest review.
