Win a copy of "Love In Mid Air"

People magazine calls Charlottean Kim Wright's debut novel, "Love in Mid Air" (Grand Central Publishing; $23), "astute and engrossing." I've got two copies to give away. Want one?
Leave a comment with your name, or some way to identify you -- not just "anonymous."
I'll randomly choose two winners and announce the results here on Monday.

I just read the review, and I can't wait to read this book. There is so much to identify with, whether it's yourself, a friend, or just relationships and marriage in general. The identifiable landmarks and a generous dose of the "what if" crossover to the dark side romance that lurks in most of our minds at some point, are the makings of a good read.

This sounds like a story for those of us who bravely or stupidly acted on our ponderings of that proverbial greener grass; for those of us who regret that we did not take plunge for change, and for those of us who will simply enjoy the fantasy ride through Elyse's experiences in the book and go back to our own relationships - the good, the bad, the mundane and the fabulous.

I wish I had met Kim in the grocery store long ago to share my "chapters". What a tale that would be. A story I burst to tell but cannot.

Love in the air sounds like a great read for any woman who has gone through the roller coaster that marriage can be. Some of us get through the ordinary ups and downs without the thrill or the scream; some of us have the ride from hell and get thrown a loop we did not anticipate, and some of us realize this isn't the ride we thought it would be in the first place and throw ourselves off and hope for a soft landing. No matter what "ride" you are on in life and relationships, this book sounds like it has something we all can relate to in some way.
I am looking forward to reading this book and enjoying the Charlotte references as well.

Thank you for the intriguing review.

How wonderful for her debut novel to get such great reviews! I'm looking forward to reading it. I can just picture the scene in the eventual movie where the former husband walks down the perfectly landscaped block after leaving his wife.

Read the reviews for "Love in Mid Air" and can not wait to read the book. After 33 years of marriage I finally found the strength to seek my own happiness and have never been happier. The peace and joy that I live daily is indescribable.
