#1 New Release in Christian Fiction on Amazon
Paige Hall’s happy ending may just be in sight. She has been dating her boyfriend for months and feels confident their relationship is going in the right direction—until she catches him kissing another woman. Humiliated and hurt, Paige retreats from the dating scene and pledges to never fall hard again as she throws herself into her work as a speech therapist. Her vow is upended in a grocery store parking lot when she is nearly run over by a handsome and very apologetic air force pilot.
Captain Jake Summers is everything a girl could dream of: charming, considerate, and hardworking. Despite Paige’s determination to avoid falling into another relationship, her resolve is no match for the whirlwind romance that ensues. When Jake is not flying, he and Paige are inseparable, and Paige begins to believe in happily ever afters again. But when the couple faces a heartrending loss, they must find strength in each other and in their faith or risk losing a once-in-a-lifetime love.
Praise from Publishers Weekly:
Flying in Love
Linton (Adoring Abigail) brings a chaste Regency sensibility to this tender contemporary military romance. After a romance ends in crushing disappointment, California school teacher Paige Hall comforts herself with her faith and her family, though her fraught relationship with her mother is little help. After Air Force pilot Jake Summers nearly runs over Paige in a parking lot, he persuades her to accept a dinner date as an apology, despite Paige’s newfound belief that the only good men are to be found in Jane Austen novels. Their courtship faces many obstacles—Paige’s trust issues chief among them—all set against a backdrop of Paige’s BFF Mandy’s wedding preparations. Though exposition about Jake’s work occasionally becomes clunky, Paige’s crisp narrative voice and the charming chapter titles (“I Stargazed,” “I Apologized (Twice)”) create the effect of reading through a good friend’s blog. Sweet without being cloying, this is sure to appeal to fans of G-rated romance. (June)
