Graceland is a sparkling, warm-hearted, witty debut. I so enjoyed joining these three generations of women on their action-packed road trip to Memphis!” —Liane Moriarty, #1 New York Times bestselling author

Hope Robinson can’t seem to please anyone lately, especially not her mother, the flamboyant soap star Olivia Grant. Olivia loves Elvis more than Jesus and, convinced she’s dying, insists on a final visit to Graceland. Unfortunately, that’s the one place Hope can’t take her. Hope fled Memphis years ago with a shameful secret and a vow never to return.

Olivia, though, doesn’t understand the word no. Instead, she wrangles Hope’s pink-haired daughter, Dylan, to drive her to Memphis by promising to reveal the mystery of her long-lost father. Hope must stop them before they expose the truth and all hell breaks loose.

As the women race from Boston to Memphis, encountering jealous soap actors, free-range ferrets, and a trio of Elvis-impersonating frat boys, everyone’s secrets begin to unravel. In order to become the family they long to be, Hope, Olivia, and Dylan must face hard truths about themselves and one another on the bumpy road to acceptance, forgiveness, and ultimately, grace.

"Irresistible, addictive, and utterly entertaining, Graceland is bound to win readers' hearts... This story of family secrets, broken promises, and the healing power of love will stay with you long after the final page is turned." —Susan Wiggs, New York Times bestselling author

"Nancy Crochiere writes with such warmth and wit that I felt I was there alongside the women, cheering them on at every step of their crazy journey." — Sarah Haywood, New York Times bestselling author of The Cactus
