In The Bag by Kate Klise
Publication Date: May 1, 2012
Publisher: HarperCollins (William Morrow Paperbacks)
A successful chef and single mother, Daisy Sprinkle, is on vacation with her teenage daughter, Coco, who picks up the wrong duffle bag at the airport. That situation is not improved by the note Daisy finds tucked into her carry-on, apparently from the man in 13-C. Daisy is in no mood for secret admirer notes or dinner dates. Or even men, for that matter.
Andrew doesn’t know what possessed him to do something like that. Hitting on strange women on airplanes is definitely not his typical style. But there was something about the woman in 6-B that could not be ignored. Of course, now he has no time to think about her, since his son Webb seems to have made off with a budding fashionista’s luggage.
Determined to make the best of a bad situation, Daisy cooks up a plan to calm her daughter’s panic over the lost bag with a week of fabulous food, shopping, and museum hopping. Andrew is busy woking on his latest project and hoping Webb finds enough to entertain himself. Little do they know the teens are making their own plan. . . one that will ultimately reunite Ms. 6-B and Mr. 13-C.
Even though I’m not familiar with Kate Klise’s work, this one sounds promising. Not to mention the fact that the description says “The Parent Trap meets You’ve Got Mail in this fun new novel” – and I just LOVE The Parent Trap! It sounds fun, definitely something I’d like to read next summer. :o)
What’s your “waiting on” pick this week?
