Holly Edwards and Peter Russell first met when they were sitting next to each other in a plane flying from LA to NY. They had time to talk about everything and had literally fallen in love with each other, believing this journey had changed their lives, but fate dictated otherwise and the two young people have no longer any way to get in contact.
Few years after, both of them are in relationships, and they are brought together once again for Holly's wedding... because her husband is in fact Peter's best friend. All these years, they had often thought about their flight together, wondering what went wrong to separate their paths. Further coincidences are going to put our two soulmates in incongruent situations... what is going to happen next ?
Love in the air is James Collins' debut novel, and could have been considered as chick-lit... if its author had been a woman. Easy to read and pleasant, this book will be the perfect partner as a summer reading. Miscommunications, adulterous relationships, secrets, friends' behaviour are giving a pace to this fresh and clever novel. The reader is going to be caught up in this sequence of events, curious to know how the characters will manage to put their lives in order now that destiny offers them a second chance...
Some people who read the book did not like the story because of its numerous coincidences they considered as ludicrous and exaggerated. But still, Love in the Air is fun, engaging and enjoyable for all those who want to believe in second chances, and who fear missed opportunities... sometimes, life can put things right !
'James Collins has written a romantic, funny and insightful page turner about love in modern times, missed opportunities and the wheel of fate (with a blow-out!) that is so engaging and real, you will find it impossible to put down.'
