What makes you happy?

That was the question Emery Reed asked me the day we met, and I couldn’t give him a single answer. I could have said my dog, or my books, or yoga — but I just stared.

And then, I got in his car.

It was crazy to take a road trip with a stranger, but after years of standing still, he was my one-way ticket to a new life, and I wasn’t going to miss it.

We shared the same space, the same car, the same hotel room — and still, we were strangers. One day we’d be laughing, the next, we wouldn’t speak. Emery was surrounded by impenetrable walls, but I wanted in.

Discovering his journal changed everything.

I read his thoughts, words not meant for anyone’s eyes, and the more I learned about him, the harder I fell. It turned out nothing made Emery Reed happy, and I wanted to change that.

I earned his trust by violating his privacy, and as wrong as it was, it worked — until one entry revealed a darkness I never knew existed, a timer I never knew was ticking.

Suddenly, what made me happy was saving Emery from himself. I just didn’t know if I could. 

Megan’s Review

”I think I knew, even then, that the greatest adventure of my life was about to begin.”

OMG… Kandi Steiner’s newest release On the Way to You is unbelievable and amazing. Kandi’s carefully crafted words were heartbreaking, beautiful and touched my heart beyond all belief. I loved, loved, loved it. I have been a massive Kandi fan for a while now ever since reading A Love Letter to Whiskey. I know it sounds clichéd, but that story literally changed my life and I knew I would always be drawn to her amazing storytelling for thereon in.

“What makes you happy?” This should be a simple question to most, but when Cooper was asked this very question by a gorgeous stranger while at work at the local diner, she was unable to form an answer. This question is so powerful to me, so simple, but has so much meaning.

Cooper dreams of one day leaving her trailer park in Alabama and moving to Seattle to attend College. Through one diner shift at a time, she knows she is saving up the money she requires to make her dreams a reality. It is no longer a pipe dream and it is when, not if.

”It was my moment, one meant for no one else, and for the first time, I felt alive – truly, one-hundred percent alive. It was my rebirth”

Emery is on a road trip to Washington all by his lonesome when he stops at a diner and asks the waitress “What makes you happy?” After idle chit chat Emery discovers that Cooper is fast on her way to Seattle to attend college. He decides to offer her a lift, one that will change their lives forever.

Emery does not always find it so easy to open up and can at times be quite dark and somber, whereas Cooper is a positive ray of sunshine. Where Cooper is day, Emery is night, but together they are simply beautiful, no words I will say will do this couple the justice they deserve, positively breathtaking.

I don’t want to go into too much detail because this amazingly beautiful story needs to be read spoiler free and trust me when I say this, it will break your heart and move you beyond recognition. This story for me was absolutely unforgettable and a definite favorite of mine so far this year. If you are looking to read something so poignant and something that is guaranteed to stay with you long after the last word is read then check out On the Way to You.

About the Author

Kandi Steiner is a Creative Writing and Advertising/Public Relations graduate from the University of Central Florida living in Tampa with her husband. Kandi works full time as a social media specialist, but also works part time as a Zumba fitness instructor and blackjack dealer.

Kandi started writing back in the 4th grade after reading the first Harry Potter installment. In 6th grade, she wrote and edited her own newspaper and distributed to her classmates. Eventually, the principal caught on and the newspaper was quickly halted, though Kandi tried fighting for her “freedom of press.” She took particular interest in writing romance after college, as she has always been a die hard hopeless romantic (like most girls brought up on Disney movies).

When Kandi isn’t working or writing, you can find her reading books of all kinds, talking with her extremely vocal cat, and spending time with her friends and family. She enjoys beach days, movie marathons, live music, craft beer and sweet wine – not necessarily in that order.
