Love is in the Air

In the BagTake two single parents, two teenagers, add a European vacation, and some misplaced luggage and you have a delightfully dreamy story: In the Bag by Kate Klise.

 

Daisy is a successful chef who just quit another restaurant. She travels to Paris to clear her head and brings along her daughter, Coco, who is getting ready to graduate from high school. Andrew is on the same flight in order to get to Madrid to oversee the installation of an art exhibit. His teenage son Webb joins him on the trip. Andrew spots Daisy on the flight and is instantly attracted to her. He slips a flirty note in her purse, gives her his email, and asks for a date. Daisy is distinctly unimpressed and fires off a scathing email rejecting Andrew’s offer.

 

Meanwhile, Webb and Coco pick up each other’s bag at the end of the flight. They find each other’s contact information and start an email dalliance. This digital friendship progresses so much that the two arrange for Webb to travel to Paris to pick up his bag and meet Coco in person. Andrew and Daisy are also set to meet the same evening when Daisy is called in as a last-minute caterer for the grand opening of Andrew’s exhibit.   

 

The story unfolds from the unique viewpoints of the four main characters and readers see just how differently men, women, parents, and children think. While working for People magazine, Klise herself was the recipient of a secret admirer note in her carry-on which gave her the spark for this fun trading places story. As a bestselling children and teen author, Klise’s adult debut is a fast-paced, humorous, and romantic gem which will leave readers waiting for a follow-up.
