Tuesday Teaser ~ The Trouble with Flying

From the first page, I've been enjoying The Trouble with Flying (The Trouble Series Book 1) by Rachel Morgan. Neither of the main characters are perfect. She's ultra-shy with strangers; he's terrified of flying. Which makes them much more interesting that your typical romance couple.

When nineteen-year-old introvert Sarah boards a plane to fly home after an overseas holiday, the last thing she expects is Aiden, the guy sitting next to her who’s never flown anywhere before and refuses to shut up. Hours of random conversation later, they part ways. Sarah can’t stop thinking about Aiden, though, and wondering if she made a terrible mistake letting him go. Should she abandon her safe, predictable life and go in search of him, or would she be chasing a happily ever after that could never exist in real life?

I don't make friends on aeroplanes. I know there are people who like to strike up a conversatione with the complete stranger sitting next to them, but that's not me. It's not that I'm an unfriendly person. It's more the fact that the conversation centre of my brain seems to sieze up in the presence of strangers, and I can't for the life of me figure out what to say. And even if the other person is happy to simply babble on while I pretend to be interested, I'd rather be doing something else. Like reading. Or watching a movie. Or trying to figure out how to stop crying.

"Your first time flying?" I repeat. I've just broken my own rule--don't perpetuate conversation with strangers if you can help it--but I'm so surprised he's never flown anywhere before that I guess the words just popped out.

  1. This is likely not for me, but I do like the opening and the teaser -- I'm the same way: I don't like to strike up conversations with the people sitting next to me on planes and trains.

  2. Sounds like a good story. I enjoy books with flawed characters. They're much more interesting than perfect ones.
    Thank you for visiting my blog this morning.

  3. I can already relate to the main character, Sarah. A good deterrent to avoid conversation is reading a book--although it doesn't always work. And from the sound of it, it would have meant her missing out on love, which wouldn't be a good thing at all.

    I do like the teaser--I'd probably ask the same thing. I would definitely keep reading.

  4. Now I am curious...first of all, because I have a fear of flying and have never flown anywhere farther away than five hours or so. The idea of a long stretch of fear is too much for me....and they don't serve many drinks on planes anymore...LOL.

    This one does sound intriguing, though, and thanks for sharing. And thanks for visiting my blog.

  5. I'd give it a shot, mostly because I don't really like to chat on and on with strangers either. I'd have to see what happened.

  6. I would keep reading to see if it's a book I'd want to finish.

  7. I like the plot-idea. I'd keep reading.

  8. Oh, she's crying. I hope her destination isn't the reason. I would keep reading.
