Would you switch lives with someone you just met?

Sabrina Monroe is poised and ready for her future as Mrs. Todd Edward Blakely. Everything seems perfect, but on the big day, suddenly she's not so sure. Her nicely mapped out life ahead of her, she finds herself in her own movie scene as the runaway bride, climbing out of the bathroom window. All she can think is escape.

Addison Bloom needs a life makeover. She's travelled the world to find love--and failed. On her way back from yet another friend's wedding, she starts to feel ill at the mere thought of seeing another veil that's not hers. Should she go back home and marry her former sweetheart, or stick it out looking for love in her new home?

Sabrina and Addison are both on the run, wanting to escape to a new life. As the two strangers talk at an airport, discovering they have the same job at opposite ends of the country, a crazy idea unfolds--one which might provide the answers they've both been looking for.

Is there such a thing as a One Way Ticket to a new life, or will they find they're running from themselves, not just the past?

If y’all haven’t noticed yet, I’m a big fan of Melissa Baldwin and Kate O’Keeffe. They’ve both been on this blog several times, and I was beyond excited when they told me they were co-writing a book about two gals switching lives for a bit. Of course, my brain went straight to Parent Trap (one of my all-time favorite movies—the Hayley Mills version, not the newer version with the redhead whatshername), but this wasn’t like that at all (thankfully, because I’m not sure they could have done that storyline justice). They made the dual point of view work so well that it was difficult to tell who wrote which character. Knowing where each author lives, I still couldn’t tell! Well done, ladies!

Meeting Addison and Sabrina was definitely a treat! I loved the spontaneity of the switch and also the ease at how they each jumped into their new life. I won’t get into details, because spoilers, but I was so happy with the way the story ended and even a bit motivated get out there and do something new (once the snow is gone, that is). I might have to make my way to Orlando or San Francisco, or even stop in New Zealand when I head to that side of the world later this year! I can’t wait to see what this pair comes up with next!
