A mobster Frank Guidry who knows too much about the Kennedy assassination crosses paths with a runaway housewife seeking a better life for herself and her two enjoyable, suspenseful novel

Beautiful writing that supports the characters and story without getting in the way. This is a bittersweet but joyful tale that embraces life and those with the courage to take the path less traveled. Echoes of A Tale of Two Cities and Casablanca were invoked for me because of the things unwritten in the white spaces between the lines.

Wonderful reading experience.

Really enjoyed this mystery

Excellent novel all around. Characters come to life against a "tragic " time in U. S. history. The novel flows smoothly , with twists and turns that compel the reader towards the end. One of the best novels that I have read in some time.

Set in the immediate aftermath of the Kennedy assassination, an astounding character-driven road novel that follows the dance between mob fixer Frank, Charlotte, a young mother fleeing her life with her two children in tow, and the forces -- real, emotional, psychological -- that are chasing them down. A rare novel that provides both thrill and emotional depth.

I just finished this book and had trouble putting it down. The character development was
great and the story flowed really well. I highly recommend this book as a "great read".

Frank Guidry and Charlotte Roy are well-rounded and fascinating characters. November Road works because of their relationship and backstories. Frank and Charlotte's secrets, need for fresh starts, and attraction keeps the action moving. Barone, the hit man tracking Guidry, kept me in terrified suspense throughout the novel. He's unpredictable, always on the scent, and deadly. I could not put this book down.

A New & Noteworthy Best of 2018 pick. Frank Guidry didn’t realize he was dropping off the getaway car for President Kennedy’s assassin. Now he’s a loose end that needs tying up. He uses a runaway wife and her kids for cover, but then he falls in love. This is a thriller that you won’t forget.

You can see the three dots on the map. A man with mob ties who realizes he is expendable. A young mother and her two daughters looking for a new start. The hit man. The tension ratchets up as the dots overlap and converge in unexpected ways like a cat chasing a mouse. Written with a POV for each traveller, you can see how their choices and misfortunes on the road dictate their future. The connection to the Kennedy assassination provides a fascinating backdrop and all are caught in that web. Who will survive to have a future? What sacrifices will be made to make it to the end of the journey?

A road novel that explores relationships between two deep and realized characters - one a fixer for the New Orleans mob and the other an artist and mother fleeing a broken marriage in the aftermath of JFK's death. This is a literary crime thriller with serious depth.
