Love In Mid Air by Kim Wright

A chance encounter with a stranger on an airplane sends Elyse Bearden into an emotional tailspin. Suddenly Elyse is willing to risk everything: her safe but stale marriage, her seemingly perfect life in an affluent Southern suburb, and her position in the community. She finds herself cutting through all the instincts that say "no" and instead lets "yes" happen. As Elyse embarks on a risky affair, her longtime friend Kelly and the other women in their book club begin to question their own decisions about love, sex, marriage, and freedom.

my thoughts~
So, I'm late (really, really late) with my review. It was due on March 31st. So here it is:
I read this book in a day, I just couldn't put it down once I started. I will just come out and say it. I did not like Elyse at all. I thought she was selfish & I don't know, immoral maybe? I'm not sure what word I want to use to describe her. She did remind me to remember: no matter how great somethings look from the outside, it doesn't mean that they ARE great! Or maybe that no matter how great some people have it, they still aren't happy with what they have? I think that each reader will take something different away from this story. And that is what I think makes it great!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher. Receiving a copy in no way reflected my review of this book.

Any book that you read in a day must be a compelling read to say the least.
