For anyone who’s ever taken the long way around…
Austin Gittleman is running late, and not just for the seaside wedding he’s attending. Austin’s an eye doctor, who doesn’t see what’s in front of him, until he crashes into Naomi Bloom, a pastry chef with a taste for adventure. Naomi believes a straight line isn’t always the shortest distance between places — or people.
Do any two people look at love the same way? Austin and Naomi offer conflicting narrative accounts as they circle each other through a series of miscommunications and missed connections. In The Scenic Route, life is what happens on the way to where you’re going. It’s unpredictable and sometimes fleeting, but it can be pretty wonderful when you bring the right person along for the ride
Gavin Greene is a hopeless romantic. He’s also a professional one. He writes the wedding column for a Pulitzer Prize-winning newspaper, covering A-list parties from coast to coast. But there’s a thin line between being a hotshot reporter on assignment and being a single guy alone on a Saturday night at someone else’s wedding.
“Sipher applies the same wit, insight and deft humor to his fiction as he does to his real-world New York Times wedding articles.”
–Southern California Public Radio
“A poignant appeal to all singles to let go and give love a try. The clever and snappy prose will appeal to readers who look forward to each new title from Jonathan Tropper.”
“Fabulous and funny, a quick, quirky read that marries self-deprecating humor with the bittersweet romantic challenges of a lonely man.”
