Catching Air: A Novel by Sarah Pekkanen

Catching Air: A NovelCatching Air: A Novel by Sarah Pekkanen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When Alyssa and her husband receive a settlement from his accident and having varying degree's of non satisfaction in their own jobs, they decide to purchase a bed and breakfast.

Kira and Peter are friends, but working together, would that bring an all different angle their their relationship?
As they include them in their plans, they move forward with their plans.

It all doesn't sound too promising as Kira and Peter are brothers who never actually saw eye to eye on things and fell out plenty of times over the years.

Dawn doesn't bode very well either as she has her own set of problems, running from an abusive husband.

It all ties in together as the read goes on and made for good reading.

I'm quite a fan of this authors books Sarah Pekkanen so it was a delight for me to receive this from Atria Books
Washington Square Press via Net Galley as a complimentary book in exchange for my honest review.

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, Todayshow). 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
