Synopsis: Cora and Martha, learning of their nephews' trip to Canada, dream about taking a "one last fling" vacation for themselves. They plan and plot their escape from the nursing home. They decide they can save money by pilfering food and candy from other residents, and camp out on their way south to Daytona Beach. However, the first challenge is transportation... how will they get there? The ladies come face to face with hardships and many other challenges in order to reach their destination.
Their nephews, Kent and Freddie, have been told by the lawyer they must get along with each other on their trip to Canada. To insure this stipulation of Mr. James' will is carried out to the letter, the lawyer has selected a third man to accompany them. This man, Mr. Foster, is to be totally ignored. His mission is to monitor and record the actions and reactions of the two men toward each other. Any display of anger or annoyance towards each other will cause them to forfeit any gift they might have received from Mr. James' will.
Travel with these unforgettable characters throughout these pages, filled with humorous experiences, and vicariously experience all the action.
From the Publisher: This is a clean, wholesome, and funny book for the entire family! I will include a review by Chris Murphy of B. Dalton Bookseller's of West Burlington, Iowa.
Author Beverly M Melvin recently wrote a "Coming of (Over-)Age" story that reads much like a screen play. Last Fling is a funny novel about two women in a nursing home that break out and make their way to Daytona Beach. I compare it to Dave Barry's fiction with a little bit of the National Lampoon Vacation thrown in.
