Publisher's Summary

Set in the heart of Louisiana, Amy Conner's spellbinding new novel tells of a young woman yearning for a better existence - and of the secret longings that will change the lives of all those around her.

Eighteen-year-old Lireinne Hooten has always been on the lowest rung of the ladder. Abandoned by her mother, Lireinne lives with her stepfather in an old trailer on Million Dollar Road. Every day she walks the long mile, through a canopy of live oaks, to her job at the world's largest alligator farm.

Shy and overweight in high school, Lireinne has become lean and resilient from months of hosing out the huge cement barns. And just like Snowball - the enormous, all-white alligator she feeds illicit treats every day - she's hungry to be free.

Lireinne's boss, Con Costello, is powerful, attractive, and used to getting exactly what he desires. Now that he's noticed Lireinne's haunting beauty, he wants her too. But unlike Con's needy second wife, Lizzie, or Emma, his still heartbroken ex, Lireinne isn't interested. Undeterred, Con's growing obsession will upend all their lives - compelling Lizzie to confront the hard truth about her marriage, pushing Emma past her self-imposed isolation and back into the world. And for Lireinne, it will lead to an unexpected chance to redefine herself far away from her past and from Million Dollar Road.

Insightful and atmospheric, Million Dollar Road is a richly observed novel of our most keenly felt appetites - for love, acceptance, and a place to belong.

Love Susan Bennett, this book not so much.

The main male character Con, what an asshole and creepy and entitled basically a total jackass. The female characters omg one whiney and desperately in need of a backbone. The other Liz please. I was so happy when she found out her husband was cheating on her even though he was a creepy jerk who liked himself WAY too much. The only thing saving this book is the main character Lorraine her take on things and the life she leads is a decent story. Sarah Fortune the neighbor totally funny wish she had a bigger part. Idk, I found myself rolling my eyes and yelling are you kidding me quite a few times.

Good for past time reading

Loved the storyline of bettering ones self and the struggle of the main female character was very relatable and believable. Main male character was more than just a self centered jerk, he was far too self absorbed and self worshipping. Felt he got everything he deserved and would have loved to have seen his first exwife stand up for herself more.
