When her handsome lawyer boyfriend, Charlie whisks her away for their anniversary weekend, Kate is sure he’s going to propose, but when he breaks up with her instead, Kate’s perfectly planned out life is thrown into immediate chaos.
Unsure of her next move, Kate travels home to Kansas City to see her family and recalibrate. It’s there in her childhood bedroom that she finds a love letter diary she kept with her first love, Rob—the one that got away. Contained within the pages is the person Kate used to be—a free-spirited adventurer that she’s lost over time and one she is eager to return to being.
Armed with the diary in hand, and a helpful nudge from her sympathetic editor, Kate hits the road on assignment for the magazine. As she makes her way across the country, stopping in places like, Sedona, Santa Fe, Austin, New Orleans, and Savannah, Kate battles mosquitos, humidity and summer thunderstorms in search of the perfect fried southern delicacy, but discovers so much more in the process: A fried shrimp po’boy should always be served with a cold Barqs root beer. If you’re going to reach out to the ex you haven’t spoken to in a decade, make sure you have the right address…and for goodness sake, keep stirring the roux so it doesn’t burn.
IN THE WORKS
Rebecca Bradley has her reasons… for being ten years late moving to New York to write a Pulitzer-winning play... and for having writers block... She doesn't want to talk about them, except maybe with her best friend Logan, after a couple dirty martinis.
With her creative rut blocking a viable career path as a playwright, Becca takes a side job at a local coffee shop where she meets Miles, a goofy jazz musician who inexplicably hates his namesake and can’t take anything seriously. They're oil and water. Becca thinks Miles is a flakey hipster and Miles finds Becca too serious and uptight.
Workplace bickering eventually leads to something resembling a friendship, and after a hazy night out, they make a bet to pass the time at work. Who can get the most tips in a day by charming customers. A day later they make another bet and while Becca can’t seem to write a single scene in her play, she can’t stop jotting down ridiculous ideas for bets with Miles. From subway races to collecting character autographs Times Square, the betting escalates into the most outrageous New York City scavenger hunt.
As Becca and Miles get to know each other, the truth about their pasts bubbles to the surface. Will it all lead to a breakthrough in her creative rut? A budding romance? Or just a whole lot of drama?
