About the Book
Title: Destination Mexico City
Author: Lori Osterberg
Jena Hughes has the perfect life. A highly successful career. A beautiful home. A handsome husband.
But lately, all she can do is complain. Her job keeps her on the road week after week. She never sees the inside of her house for more than a few hours at a time. And if she could just get her husband, Justin, in the same zip code for longer than a few moments…
Justin Reither is a man on a mission. With goals in mind, he’s pushed hard his entire career to make them come true. Will Jena’s questions get in his way?
A wrong turn in the airport gives Jena the opportunity to play Destination Roulette. As she leaves her cares behind for a week of reflection and discovery, will she find she’s been on the wrong path all along? The results may leave them both asking:
Is this really all there is?
A heartwarming look at chance encounters and saying yes, Lori Osterberg’s fresh, witty novel proves that some things are worth reaching for…
After running several successful businesses, Lori Osterberg decided it was time to reinvent herself once again. Facing an empty nest and too much normal suburbia lifestyle in front of her, she talked her husband into selling off their 3300 square foot home, sell two-thirds of their stuff, all for the chance to slow travel the world. When not traveling, she finds a friend or two to share a good bottle of wine, visits tea factories, dances the night away at outdoor concerts, eats her way through farmers markets, and daydreams about the next set of characters she lives vicariously through. She’s currently writing books and living the dream in the Pacific Northwest.

“I had no idea it was so bad. When did it get so bad? I wasn’t even aware we had problems, and now you’re telling me they are a lot more significant than I even realized.” Justin’s voice was thick with sarcasm.
“Justin, whoa, I think you’re putting too much into this. This isn’t against you. This is about us. I’m just questioning our priorities of working as much as we currently are. Why wait ten years to enjoy life when maybe there’s a way we can start enjoying more of life right now?
“That’s where tonight comes in. I spoke at great length with that couple I was telling you about. They were us a few years ago. They were crazy-busy and barely saw each other. Then something clicked, and they realized they didn’t have to accept that kind of a lifestyle. If you could just meet them: they look so worry-free. They seem so happy. They look so relaxed. I would love for you to meet them. In fact, they gave me their card and invited us to talk with them. I think they could help us figure out what to do next. Kind of coach us a bit, I guess. I think it would do us both good to talk with someone like them and get a different perspective on what we want to do. How we want to move forward. “
She could hear his breath. She knew he was there. She could hear him moving his phone from ear to ear. Yet he said nothing. An impregnable silence had so much to say.
He finally spoke. “So now it’s about coaching? Or counseling? You want us to see someone? Really? Frankly, Jena, I’m floored. I can’t believe I never picked up on how unhappy you are.”
Exasperated? Yes. She could hear that. But she heard even more, and that’s what scared her.
