Overview

How do you say no to a man at thirty-thousand feet?

When Grier Thompson is called to Indigo, Alaska to deal with the estate of her late, estranged father, the last thing she expected to find was a hotly contested will, a hostile half-sister who never knew Grier existed, or for that matter, an entire town that doesn’t take kindly to this stranger. Except maybe for Mick O’Shaughnessy.

An Indigo native, Mick has all he wants in life: a soft flannel shirt, a nice cottage, and a thriving airline charter business. Could this simple life get any better? One look at Grier and Mick discovers the answer is a resounding, “yes.” She thinks so too—and if it weren’t for her family baggage, maybe she could relax and enjoy herself before it’s time to return to real life.

But then an unexpected visitor from Grier’s past unsettles the entire town just when the residents were finally starting to warm to her. By the time Mick comes out of the clouds to realize he’s fallen head over heels in love, it might be just too late to win Grier’s heart.

Last year I fell in love with the little town of Indigo, Alaska and its quirky, love-obsessed inhabitants in Addison Fox’s Baby It’s Cold Outside, book one of the Alaskan Nights Series. I’m happy to report that it was not a one-book wonder. If that book was the courtship, this one, Come Fly With Me, is the marriage because now I feel like I’m a member of the family. It’s not necessary to have read the first book, but doing so will make Come Fly With Me a richer experience as we learn the back stories of several of our favorite eccentrics. We become more embedded in lives of the characters and it’s a happy place to be—homey. Better still, those stories continue to move the main narrative forward and don’t slow it down as unessential tangents. The main focus of book one was the love story between Sloan McKinley and her best friend Grier Thompson’s attorney, Walker Montgomery. Book two focuses on Grier and Mick O’Shaughnessy. Book three, Just in Time, expected out in August 2013, focuses on Roman Forsyth and his high school sweetheart, Avery. All three men make up “the grandsons” of Indigo’s powerhouse matriarchs. The grandsons have grown-up together and are friends, but each, while ruggedly hunky, has carved out his own niche. Mick O’Shaughnessy is a talented pilot, Roman Forsyth is a paparazzi-followed playboy, local legend and professional hockey player in New York, and Walker Montgomery is a successful attorney. Can I tell you that I’m giddy about the fact that Fox has already set us up in Come Fly With Me for at least two more stories still to come? There is an excerpt in the back of Come Fly With Me for Roman’s story. Another year to wait. *heavy sigh* Once again Fox brings her smart, sassy sense of humor with zingers like, “Grier dropped onto the bed and reached for a pillow, tossing it at Avery’s head. ‘ You've got a one-track mind.’” Avery replies, “It’s a rare and awesome gift. And like all gifts, it must be protected, nurtured and treated with the utmost respect.” Grier is with her girlfriends the way I am with mine. It was just fun to be on the inside. For personal reasons Come Fly With Me struck some emotional cords. Parts of it were hard for me to read, but I have to share this little tidbit that I completely identified with, “…that extraordinarily reasonable voice in her head whispered. It was the same voice that told her to eat broccoli and carrots instead of cake and as far as she was concerned, the prissy b*tch could just suck it.” Addison Fox does a great job with contemporary romance. It’s a genre that can take a lot, especially its readers, for granted. Fox does not. She takes the time to put out a good story, not just a steamy romance. Definitely worth the read.

I read "Baby It's Cold Outside" and just loved it. This was another great book! I loved Grier and Mick's story and it is so fun getting to know the supporting cast of characters more and more. I didn't find this book as laugh out loud funny as the first one, but I don't think that detracts from the story. Grier and Mick's story and their issues seem more serious than Sloan and Walker's. Ms. Fox is a wonderful writer and her stories flow effortlessly from the page. Just sit back and enjoy!
