How far will you go
to find out if
love at first sight is real?

MEET 50 MILES AWAY . . .
First dates are awkward.
Especially for strangers barreling down the highway
in two separate cars.
In 50 Miles Away, strangers Jack and Leeann hit the road to drive far away from problems back home. Jack is heading to Tybee Island to clear his head. Leeann is expected in Miami for her brother’s wedding. They fill the miles spent alone confronting crumbling relationships and careers, swearing off men and women as they drive and sing along with the radio. But when their paths cross at a rest stop outside Richmond, they spark a clumsy chemistry and a tentative plan to meet again farther down the highway.
The distance between stops shortens as they race along the highway, anxious to continue their unexpected first date. Jack and Leeann bond over awkward conversations and childhood memories about first kisses at church camps and times their parents spanked them. But Jack guards the one secret that could drive Leeann away – he’s married.
They meet Hillarie, an eccentric mother of four on a summer road trip, who frequently stops to escape the chaos in her car. Her comedic timing is bad for Jack and Leeann. Lonely for adult companionship, she interrupts them to vent about motherhood and envy their romance.
Do they believe their chemistry is real? Worth the risk to go in a completely new direction? They have fifty miles to decide which turn they'll make.
