GIVEAWAY & BLOG TOUR: Love in Mid-Air by Kim Wright (Book Review 2010-52)


LOVE IN MID AIR BY KIM WRIGHT

Product Description

A chance encounter with a stranger on an airplane sends Elyse Bearden into an emotional tailspin. Suddenly Elyse is willing to risk everything: her safe but stale marriage, her seemingly perfect life in an affluent Southern suburb, and her position in the community. She finds herself cutting through all the instincts that say "no" and instead lets "yes" happen. As Elyse embarks on a risky affair, her longtime friend Kelly and the other women in their book club begin to question their own decisions about love, sex, marriage, and freedom. There are consequences for Elyse, her family, and her circle of close friends, all of whom have an investment in her life continuing as normal. But is normal what she really wants after all? In the end it will take an extraordinary leap of faith for Elyse to find--and follow--her own path to happiness.

An intelligent, sexy, absorbing tale and an honest look at modern-day marriage, Love in Mid Air offers the experience of what it's like to change the course of one's own destiny when finding oneself caught in mid air.

LOVED IT

I was hooked by the second page for this one!  I have read several stories with the same theme of a woman's mid life crisis and a lot of times they just go terribly wrong.  Love in Mid Air does everything right.  Wright handles Elyse's confrontation with her dilemma with grace humor and aplomb.  There also is a great deal of humor that helps diffuse some awkward situations.  There are times I dislike Elyse since she is ripping her friends and family apart with her actions, but I also understand that she is wondering if what she has in life is all there is.
