After botching an important meeting, Emma Corrigan thinks she's going to die during an extremely turbulent flight home. When she mixes fear with booze, it isn't long before she's telling her handsome seatmate her deepest secrets—from her boring relationship to her family to her work life.

But the plane lands without crashing, and Emma assumes life will continue as normal. Her family, including her horrid but successful cousin Kerry, still makes her feel like a loser. At work, Emma doesn't get fired, but she doesn't get a promotion either. And her air transit scare has convinced her perfect-on- paper boyfriend that they should move in together. Only when the mysterious head of her company visits the U.K. office does Emma realize what she's in for. The CEO is none other than her airplane seatmate, who playfully dangles her secrets over her head and begins devising reasons for them to cross paths.

With its endearing heroine, crazy workplace antics, good and evil flatmates, appealing romance and gobs of humor, the latest from the author of the Shopaholic series grabs you from page one and doesn't disappoint. (Mar., 368 pp. $21.95)
