Kira Danner is falling apart with her non-stop job at a law firm. So when her husband, Peter, proposes to her that they quit their jobs and move to Vermont to help run a B&B that Peter’s brother, Rand, and his wife, Alyssa, have purchased, she jumps at the chance. But Rand and Peter haven’t gotten along in recent years, and the close quarters of the B&B might be more than the brothers can handle. As Kira gets to know Alyssa, manages the kitchen, and deals with demanding guests, each member of this foursome has to deal with their own struggles and figure out what they truly want out of life.

Snapshot Review:

Sarah Pekkanen’s breezy fifth novel is just as winning as all her previous books. All of her characters are intriguing, though it’s the women who are really the stars of Catching Air. Kira and Alyssa don’t really know each other when they agree to live and do business together, but they really hit it off as the novel progresses. It’s wonderful to watch them become closer, but also to see each of their lives unfold in ways they didn’t expect. Readers will enjoy getting to know these women and will revel in the cozy atmosphere of the B&B. As always, Pekkanen emotionally engages the reader; it’s difficult not to be invested by the time the last pages are turned. If you’re looking for quality women’s fiction with vibrant, realistic characters, then Sarah Pekkanen is always a great choice.

    Is it absolutely sacrilegious to admit that I haven’t read a single book by Pekkanen? I really must rectify that.
