Queen of The Road Contest

I had the opportunity to read Queen of the Road by Doreen Orion.

I honestly haven’t finished yet. I haven’t had the book for very long but once I started reading it I didn’t want to put it down. It is just hard to read with two children that need you 24/7.

Her writing style is witty and charming at the same time. I find myself wanting to find out what her and her husband are going to get into next.

In one chapter she is on a farm learning about chiggers and then she finds herself driving a tractor, quite well in fact. I like what she says “A princess can do anything she puts her mind to”.

She also finds herself at a nudist RV stop. Here is some video to share:


Doreen is in her second marriage and it is a match made in heaven. I feel like her sometimes, I think I could go on the road with my husband. We don’t argue very often and I don’t have much to complain about. She is a psychiatrist that likes to work all day in her pj’s in bed until, her husband convinced her to go on the road.

Now she is an author, writes a blog, and would love to come to your book club. The book actually has a reader guide for you and your book club. This is a book that is sure to leave you smiling.

She also seems to sharing her adventures on youtube or you can go to her site.
