53-year-old Mary Sloan, went on a group trip to Mount Graham in Arizona on September 3, 2015. The site was about a quarter-mile from Grandview Peak Road and about two miles from Riggs Lake and was situated close to a steep cliff. The area is isolated and some way up a curving mountain road. Mary was still dealing with the loss of her husband who passed a few months before the trip

Not a traditional road trip book where the driver is behind the wheel on the open road, but rather Mike decided to hitchhike across the country from San Francisco to Cape Fear, North Carolina, which would be challenging in and of itself. But Mike decided to do it without so much as a penny.

About The Author: Born into a Georgia family of eccentrics and visionaries, Mari Sloan carries her heritage of storytelling from the Deep South to the hills of Southern California where she shares a home with her writer husband and a black Maine Coon cat.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked up Mari Sloan's sequel to her first book, "Beaufort Falls", but I was sure I would not be disappointed. I was thrilled that I was correct in that assumption. Beaufort Falls was a cliff hanger from the first page and I pored through it getting to know the characters well and form my likes and dislikes without bias. I couldn't put the book down for long, tending to minimal needs and carrying it with me pretty much wherever I happened to be...
I was left at the end hanging with the knowledge that a second book was in the works and so settled in to wait for another thrill ride of suspense and terror. When I saw that "Road Trip" was ready for release I fairly jumped with joy. I was amazed at how quickly it came in the mail (yay Amazon)and I couldn't wait to dig in.
I doubt a better sequel could have been written and the suspense continued, leaving me hanging at every turn. I felt as if I was actually on the road heading wherever the previous characters took me and much to my surprise, along with the resident evil and all too human traits of the stars of the novel, I found myself laughing out loud at the humorous interjections Mari had peppered into the pages. In fact, more than once my husband heard me chuckling and came to ask what was so funny?
I know that I am going to reread both of these books more than once and in spite of myself I am realizing that I truly hope that Mari Sloan will pick up her "pen" at some point down the road, no pun intended and give us another book about the offspring of fictional Beaufort Falls. I will be patient and keep watch.
If you love your suspense tales dotted with evil and spirits..you will love these books. Both could be read without the other but I wouldn't recommend that if you want the full brunt of Mari's wonderful storytelling.

Pack your bags. You're going on a trip you won't soon forget. Mari Sloan's latest book, Road Trip, rounds up a cast of eccentric and memorable characters that have back stories that will keep you guessing as to their fate the entire journey. And what a journey it is.

If you haven't read her first book, Beaufort Falls, pick it up, because some of these folks are just too much fun not to know their entire story. Like Charlie Callahan. He alone makes the trip in the ramshackle pink trailer an adventure.

Charlie's back in Beaufort Falls to rescue Molly, a young girl who is basically his reason for living. But it's not what you think. His history with her mother goes way back and he wants to save her from what could literally be the end of the world.

There's another guy who "drops" in, Al, otherwise known as Twixel, whose cosmic presence is a mystery to him as well as the others on this trip. But they'll all be glad he's with them, even if they never really understand why.

The Vegas cross-dresser and the Chinese beauty and the missing Hollywood director are also along for the wild ride. And I almost forget the handsome Indian on the white pony. It's delightful and thrilling and when the gaping maw of that black cat who is going to swallow...

You gotta read it.

Road Trip is an inspired sequel to Sloan's previous novel, "Beaufort Falls." Her narrative abilities, as in the previous book, allow readers to virtually walk the story as they read it. Almost like watching an interactive movie. Bravo! The characterizations are concise, distinct, which is unusual in a book with such a large cast of characters. Different settings and various plot twists, which can become a bit confusing in some novels, are presented and constructed so well that they seem merely the logical progression of the story, and wonderfully so. They act as the vehicle for constant dramatic action. This is a compelling read. Oh, and Miz Sloan, I love the epigraphs. They are perfect, and some are quite profound.

When this eagerly-awaited sequel to Beaufort Falls arrived I read it in two days. In many ways it recalls its predecessor: it’s awash with engaging, larger-than-life but entirely plausible characters with complicated interpersonal dynamics; there’s an important strand of the supernatural; there’s an undercurrent of off-beat humour; the narrative pace is beautifully controlled and sustained; and the book is difficult to put down - I finished it at quarter past two in the morning. But in three important ways it’s different. First, the humour is subtle from beginning to end. The belly-laughs at the world’s most incompetent pair of villains (Virgil and Spike) that we enjoyed so much in Beaufort Falls are absent, but there’s still plenty to amuse the careful and discerning reader. (For example, not many books feature a vulnerable protagonist who is lovingly protected and safe in the care of a warm-hearted serial killer driving a worn-out truck towing a bright pink motor home.) Second, the steamy, claustrophobic atmosphere of the small town of Beaufort Falls gives way to a quest along the open road through the southern states from Alabama to southern California; there’s every bit as much tension as in the earlier book, but it’s a different sort of tension. (This quest, the ‘road trip’ of the title, reflects the author’s life: born and raised in Alabama, she now lives with her husband and cat near Los Angeles.) Third, the main protagonist, Molly, is no longer a little girl; she’s now an adolescent bordering on adulthood, and that has obvious effects on the dynamics of the story.

I must be careful not to give away too much about the book, but a few more observations would be pertinent. In addition to the central characters familiar from Beaufort Falls, Road Trip offers us a stupid young armed robber, a man reduced (perhaps from wealth and eminence) to the status of homeless vagrant by total amnesia, a menacing (though not entirely competent) Chinese gang, hill-billies, Native Americans riding motor bikes, and other human types one is likely to meet during an adventure of this kind. The novel reflects real life in its juxtapositions of tragedy and farce, and Mari Sloan doesn’t shy away from presenting tragedy; yet most of the time we find ourselves laughing (or at least smiling) in the face of it. But the book also dissociates itself from real life – or what most of us consider real life – by interweaving with the human story a battle between the celestial forces of good and evil, the creator and the destroyer. However, typically of this writer once again, the former appears as a vulnerable, naïve old man who needs constant care and attention, and the latter as a cat with Attitude. Only an author who truly understands and appreciates cats could have given us such a character. Finally, although nothing would induce me to reveal the ending, I assure potential readers that the complex, multi-stranded plot reaches a highly satisfactory resolution.

The introduction of a major character late in the novel struck me as odd to begin with, but it works; in the overall plan of the book, it’s the right strategy. There are one or two minor editing glitches but they scarcely affect the reader’s enjoyment. And the presentation of the book is first-rate: even for my ageing eyes the print is clear and easy to read, and the cover design is striking and attractive.

I have no hesitation (and a good deal of pleasure) in according a five-star rating to Road Trip.
