Catching Air (Sarah Pekkanen)

After having a week off from blogging - and catching up with life - I am quite excited to be back to doing what I love. While on that week hiatus, this blog passed the 500 page view marker since starting earlier this year, and all I can say is WOW! I am so excited that anybody takes the time to stop by and check out the blog and the reviews I've been posting, so thank you!

This week's review is of Catching Air by Sarah Pekkanen, a romance-survival-lifestyle themed book. I say there's three categories because the book follows the lives of two couples and a stand alone female: Peter and Kira, Alyssa and Rand, and Dawn. Their lives all become intertwined in the craziness that is running a B-and-B. Being brothers, Peter and Rand go way back but they also have a rocky history; something that must be worked through. Kira and Alyssa, being sister-in-laws, face their own challenges apart; Kira in regards to catering a wedding and Alyssa in regards to becoming a mother. Dawn faces her own hardships, as she tries to escape from a haunted past.
The Book Cover
I've never read a book quite like this one, but I don't necessarily say that as a bad thing. Yes at first I found myself confused as to which character was being placed into my point of view, but as the story begins to develop - and you get an understanding of the characters - the switching of views becomes quite easy to pick up on.

The plot itself is again something quite unique to itself and I definitely fell in love with it, along with its characters. A few parts I found a bit "wordy" but other than that, I recommend this book from start to finish! Might find myself reading some more of Sarah Pekkanen's work in the future!
Other Books by Sarah Pekkanen
Overall I would rate Catching Air 4.5/5 because there was the initial (yet minor) confusion, as well as the slight wordiness in parts; other than that, definitely give this a read!

Until next time,
Happy Reading Fellow Bookworms :)
