Getting away has never been so complicated
‘Vermont, Kira thought, testing out the word, envisioning snowflakes drifting onto her cheeks and pine trees spreading open under an enormous blue sky. She lived in the Sunshine State, but sometimes she went days without ever glimpsing the sun.’
A chance to run a bed-and-breakfast 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 brandnew life, she quells her fears about living with the bed-and-breakfast’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 bed-and-breakfast 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. Yet 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 realise 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.
