Title: Truck stop Jesus

Author: Buck Storm

Publisher: Heritage Beacon Fiction

Publication Date: 2016

Length: 331 pages


Truck Stop Jesus is a quirky book. The dialogue is a little hard to follow as you begin, but once used to it, it seems rather endearing. Filled with interesting characters, you’ll be taken on a cross country road trip and much of the time you might feel you are living back in the 40’s.

Paradise Jones is an aspiring actress just waiting for her big break. She loves the old glamour of Hollywood so tries to image herself after the likes of Doris Day, Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, you get the picture. When her lecherous stepfather attempts to take advantage of her, Paradise flees everything she knows to get away from his accusations and power. Then she meets Doc Morales who falls in love with her instantly. As they attempt to solve an age old puzzle involving gold coins, their epic road trip begins. Add to the mix other madcap individuals and you have a delightful and memorable read.
