Kate needs to fly from New York to Seattle. As the maid of honor in her high-strung and overdramatic cousin's wedding, her presence is not only mandatory but vital. When a massive and unexpected blizzard diverts the flight to Dallas, of all places, Kate will try anything to keep heading in the right direction. This includes relying on Joe, her armrest-hogging, antisocial seatmate who is headed to Seattle for an impressive new job. With the odds shrinking with every passing hour, sparks fly as this duo take on all manner of transportation in their cross-country quest.
VERDICT London's (The Last Debutante) latest is a quick whirl of a trip as two polar opposites are forced to work together to reach their destination. The light banter between Kate and Joe and a few running gags add humor to this already lighthearted book. This reviewer's suggestion: grab this book for any type of travel. It will serve as an enjoyable way to pass the time, and, by comparison, Kate and Joe's trials will make any annoying situation seem like a dream.
