The life of a flight attendant is sure to have its ups and downs. Noel's wonderfully written romp elicits fun, surprise and a behind-the-scenes glimpse into
the inner workings of the airline industry. Hailey is a perfectly flawed heroine who makes the most out of some turbulent (pun intended) situations in her life.

For a while, Hailey Lane's life was just peachy. Her job as a flight attendant afforded her the opportunity to travel all over the world; her pilot boyfriend had a prime piece of real estate in New York City and her best friend Clay had been her partner in crime for as long as she could remember.

Convinced her boyfriend will propose on her birthday, and convinced she may just say yes, Hailey heads for Michael's apartment and comes face to face with some uncomfortable truths: Michael has no interest in proposing, she realizes she never loved him and, horror of horrors, now she has no place to live!
