Book Review: Love in Mid Air by Kim Wright

Love in Mid Air by Kim Wright

Publisher's description:
"A chance encounter with a stranger in 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 church. 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. In the end it will take an extraordinary leap of faith for Elyse to find - and follow- her own path to happiness."

Comments: I found the main character Elyse frantic and the pace of her narrative staccato and disjointed. I didn't find her sympathetic and I was put off by her grammar/speech/narrative very early in the book.

ARC provided by the publicist for my objective review.

I would probably not enjoy that kind of disjointed pace too. Thanks for the review. I always enjoy visiting you here :)
