IN THE BAG by Kate Klise

Congrats to Amy. R
You have won In The Bag!
Please email me your full name, address and the name of the book you won to:
stephanieelliot@gmail.com



In The Bag was just released last month so it’s a fairly new one, and what I love about this book is that the premise was sparked because the author, Kate Klise actually received a mysterious note in her bag from an airplane passenger which prompted her to write this novel. It turns out that the mysterious note-writer was married and just looking for some side action, which Kate Klise was NOT interested in, but it did give her the jump-start for this fun and flirty light read which is about connecting not only two adults but their children as well as they mix up their bags during an international flight!

Meet two single parents who think they’re too busy to date and two teenagers who can’t stop writing flirty emails. This is a tale of connections—missed and made—in a universe that seems to have its heart set on reuniting Ms. 6B and Mr. 13C.

Webb--

I can't believe I picked up the wrong bag at the airport. My dad is never going to let me hear the end of it. 

Coco--
I don't understand why Mom told me to pack my worst underwear. And now I've lost my bag? Ack!


Andrew--
I cannot stop thinking about that woman in seat 6B on the flight to Paris. 

Daisy--
I don't have time to worry about the creep sitting in 13C who slipped a note in my purse. I have to find my daughter's missing bag before this ruins our vacation.


In the Bag is a smart and stylish story that explores the old-fashioned art of romance in a modern world, where falling in love can be as risky as checking a bag on an international flight. Buckle your seat belt—it's going to be a bumpy vacation!

For those with young kids, you’ll be interested to know that Kate and her sister Sarah are an amazing team of author/illustrator who has written a ton of great books for the younger set. You can check them all out here I was stunned and excited to discover all of these and really would like to find the time to read some of these that are for 12 and over!
