In the Bag...Review

About the book:
A successful chef and single mother, Daisy Sprinkle, is on vacation with her teenage daughter, Coco, who picks up the wrong duffle bag at the airport. That situation is not improved by the note Daisy finds tucked into her carry-on, apparently from the man in 13-C. Daisy is in no mood for secret admirer notes or dinner dates. Or even men, for that matter. 

Andrew doesn’t know what possessed him to do something like that. Hitting on strange women on airplanes is definitely not his typical style. But there was something about the woman in 6-B that could not be ignored. Of course, now he has no time to think about her, since his son Webb seems to have made off with a budding fashionista’s luggage. 

Determined to make the best of a bad situation, Daisy cooks up a plan to calm her daughter’s panic over the lost bag with a week of fabulous food, shopping, and museum hopping. Andrew is busy woking on his latest project and hoping Webb finds enough to entertain himself. Little do they know the teens are making their own plan. . . one that will ultimately reunite Ms. 6-B and Mr. 13-C.

I liked the characters well enough.  The chapters alternate characters and part of the narration is told through email.  Very contemporary.  The story is light, but entertaining. An interesting premise. Funny. Mild profanity.  Not one I'd necessarily re-read.  Perfect for a beach read.

  1. This sounds cute! Thanks for the review! (Also, I was quite struck by the cover's similarity to Victoria Connelly's A Weekend with Mr. Darcy, LOL!)

  2. This does sound like a fun and light read that would be perfect poolside, so I am interested in picking up a copy for myself. This was a wonderful review today, and I love the fact that you give just enough pertinent information, but stay away from spoilers. Great job today, and great book!

  3. Aw! Cool. This sounds (and looks) cute. I may have to snag it on Amazon sometime.

    Thanks, Holly!

  4. Thanks for the nice review! I tried to write a book that *I* would like to read on vacation.

    Best regards and happy reading + blogging!
