Catching Air is the newest book by Sarah Pekkanen. I received an advanced copy of this book to read and was excited to dive in. It was published yesterday, so start tracking it down! I've been reading a lot of "heavy" books and needed something light with a happy ending, I figured Pekkanen would do that justice. The story is set in Vermont in the winter in a B&B. When I say that I usually enjoy Pekkanen's books, what I really mean is I spend 250-350 pages lusting after the setting, and this one was no different. Can I buy a B&B also? Please? This was a good, fast read.
My rating: 3.5 stars
Summary from goodreads:
From the internationally bestselling author of four books, including The Opposite of Me, a vibrant, compulsively readable novel about two married couples who pursue a dream to open a bed-and-breakfast in small-town Vermont.
A chance to run a B&B in snowy, remote Vermont—it’s an offer Kira Danner can’t resist after six soul-crushing years of working as a lawyer in Florida. As Kira and her husband, Peter, step into a brand new life, she quells her fears about living with the B&B’s co-owners: Peter’s sexy, irresponsible brother Rand, and Rand’s wife, Alyssa…who is essentially a stranger.
For her part, Alyssa sees taking over the B&B as the latest in a string of adventures. Plus, a quiet place might help her recover from the news that she can’t bear children. But the idyllic town proves to be anything but serene: Within weeks, the sisters-in-law are scrambling to prepare for their first big booking—a winter wedding—and soon a shy, mysterious woman comes to work for them. Dawn Zukoski is hiding something; that much is clear. But what the sisters-in-law don't realize is that Dawn is also hiding from someone…
Relatable and dynamic, Catching Air delves deeply into the vital relationships that give shape to women’s lives.
