Kate Larabee is so happy!
Or so she thinks...
She's about to get engaged to a handsome lawyer, she lives in a fancy loft in Downtown Los Angeles and she has a great job writing for L.A.'s number one travel magazine.
When her would-be fiancé, Charlie leaves her unexpectedly for his high school sweetheart, Kate finds herself on shaky ground questioning the very perfect life she thought she had acquired.
In an effort to understand her crumbling life, she begins to dig into her past and contemplate her own former loves, including Rob - the one that got away...far away.
As Kate embarks solo, on same the road trip she once took with her first love, she begins to realize that while one should never compromise themselves for a relationship, some burned bridges deserve repair and revisitation.
Have Baggage, Will Travel is the hilarious sophomore novel by Erin Shaw, and explores the bittersweet insight often found when you open yourself up to the past and imagine how your life might be had you done things differently.
