Fiction Review: Love is in the Air: 5 Contemporary Christian Romances by Laura Hilton, Candee Fick, Kathleen Rouser, Kathleen Friesen, Tanya Eavenson

A while back I posted that Love is in the Air would be debuting May 1st. 
Since then, I have had the privilege to read and do an early review.

Book Description:
This collection of five brand new romances is sure to send your heart soaring.

First Class Wrong Flight by Laura V. Hilton:
Candi Walker is excited to attend her former college roommate’s wedding. At least it’s a direct flight across the country and the potential of messing up is next to impossible…until she crashes into a handsome pilot.

Alex Kuklewski has one last flight before he attends his stepsister’s wedding. Desperate to escape his tagalong ex-girlfriend’s clutches, Alex prays that his future wife would drop into his path. And she does.

Emotional baggage on both sides exceeds the weight limit. What will it take for them to launch true love into the air?

A Castle in the Clouds by Candee Fick:
Aspiring romance novelist Miranda Scott has her head in the clouds and her nose buried in a book. Raised by a single mother, extravagant trips to castles overseas are only a fairy-tale…until a co-worker’s accident has her boarding a plane to teach creative writing on an all-expenses-paid school-sponsored trip.

Family responsibilities kept Joshua Clark close to home, but it’s finally time for the history teacher to spread his wings. Hopefully his time chaperoning an overseas trip will reveal what the next chapter holds.

Flying Into Love by Kathleen Rouser:
Unable to say no when others need her, Talia Sampson took on her deceased aunt’s advice column and the care of her special needs niece. Then new veteran, Ben Tanner, shows up unexpected on her doorstep. Hurt many times, he wonders where home is. Talia isn’t happy finding a hot-air balloon with him. And Talia hates flying.

Will she trust God—and Ben—enough to go airborne?

Written in the Clouds by Kathleen Friesen:
A mysterious cloud formation, a nerve-wracking introduction for JR and Serena, an unexpected reunion for Jim and Blythe, a few traumatic memories, a pilot for the company plane, and another afraid of flying. Mix them together…and what in the world is God up to? Is it love at first flight?

To Gain Forever by Tanya Eavenson:
Karianne Bennett, small-town wedding coordinator, has always believed in happily-ever-afters. That is, for everyone but herself. Hope comes when she adopts a retired service dog and a newcomer catches her eye.

Trey Scott has been fascinated with fireworks since he was a boy. If he can land the account for a hot-air balloon festival in an out-of-state town, he’ll be that much closer to achieving his lifelong goal. But his dreams never included a beautiful dog walker who also happens to be the stranger he’s been praying over for years.

My Review:
I enjoyed this collection of sweet romances by these talented authors. Each writer took the theme of love in the air and created a unique story. I had a couple of favorites as every reader will. You'll enjoy the history of a hot-air balloon, a mix up at the airport, rekindled love in a small business plane, fireworks celebrating love, and a delightful literary trip to Europe. The couples in the stories span several generations, which adds a special touch. I received a complimentary copy of this book. Opinions expressed in this review are completely my own.
The Kindle version is available for pre-order at 99 cents. Quite a deal for five wonderful novellas.
