Descripción

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.

In her previous works including The Best of Us, “rising star” (Library Journal) Sarah Pekkanen captivated readers by penning “refreshingly introspective, sharply realistic, and tenderly humorous” novels (Booklist) that had readers “flying through the pages” (Hoda Kotb, Today show). Now, in Catching Air, Pekkanen turns an unflinching eye on the tangled relationships of two pairs of thirty-somethings.

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

    The author of this book sent me a signed copy to my home as a pre-read. I've always been impressed with her books and this one does not disappoint either. The story is a great one, and makes you evaluate love, friendships, and family. Will definitely not be my last book of hers to read!

    I have to say that this book is far better then The Best of Us, the last book from Sarah. Not that I did not like that book. I just felt more of a greater connection with Kira, Alyssa, and Dawn. Which I was a little surprised about. After the last book and the fact that I had my doubts about this book. I thought that the women were going to be needy and whiny. Luckily this was not the case. In fact, I liked the women more because I felt they had formed a good friendship bond and were strong each in their own way. The men were more of an after thought for me. All there women had issues to deal with but they did it in a good way. I wanted to be their friends. There was a reader question that I liked and it was " Would you ever want to move to a vacation destination and open your own business? If yes, where in the world would you pick? What would the business be? Who would you want to run it with?"My answer is: I would move to a vacation destination and open my own business. I have two that come to mind. The first is a B&B in Ireland. I have never been to Ireland (Yet). However I love the lush green fields and countryside depicted in the pictures that I have seen. The reason I would open a B&B is because I remember looking at catalogs of all of the different bedding and falling in love with it and thought how cool would it be to pick out all the bedding I wanted and decorate different themes for different rooms. I would run it with my husband.My second business would be a horse ranch where people could come and stay in Montana. I love horses and cowboys (the real ones) and of course Montana. I would run it with my husband and family.

    Two couples move to Vermont to open a bed and breakfast. The two brothers and sisters-in-laws learn much about each other as they take on the venture. A stranger, Dawn, shows up at the B&B with secrets of her own and that unravel as the novel moves forward. A great story about how love, relationships, and the memories of our childhood shape our lives every day. I must say that the food served at the B&B in this novel gave me a constant urge to eat, because everything Kira served up sounded delicious. Great novel to follow The Best of Us.

    Catching Air is a nice little vacation escape of a read. Kira and her husband Peter set off from their high-stress jobs in Florida to try their hands at running a bed & breakfast with Peter’s brother, Rand, and his wife, Alyssa. None of them has done anything quite like it before, but they each bring their separate talents–and baggage–to the adventure.

    The story, though it could be fraught with melodrama and bickering, is really one of four fairly well-adjusted adults learning to work through their problems like grown-ups and succeed at something new. I fear I’ve just managed to make it sound supremely uninteresting, but rest assured, Pekkannen is far better at this than I am! Catching Air is a light, lovely little novel, and a perfect summer read. It’s filled with vibrant characters, realistic and relatable situations, and a setting that makes you feel like you’re on vacation the entire time you’re reading. It was truly a joy to return to each afternoon, and I found I missed Kira and Alyssa after I had finished it.

    Pekkannen’s writing may not be entirely flawless; there were a couple of place where I felt like the plot shifts could have been a bit more smooth, or things could have been more strongly developed, but I’m really not going to be terribly nit-picky, here. It was just plain refreshing to read a book that was able to tackle some fairly difficult real-life problems, but also convey that, with a little work and trust, things generally work out alright.

    A couple of profanities; otherwise delightfully clean. 3.5 stars. Catching Air is on shelves now!
