In the Bagby Kate Klise
Synopses & Reviews
A European vacation. A luggage mix-up. A note from a secret admirer.
Meet two single parents who think they're too busy to date.
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!
"Klise takes a break from her bestselling children's books for her first foray into adult fiction. This lively love story is told through four voices — those of star chef Daisy Sprinkle; her precocious 18-year-old daughter, Coco; the art installation designer Andrew Nelson; and his 17-year-old son, Webb, a computer geek. Traveling separately on the same flight to Paris with their kids, Andrew is immediately smitten with Daisy, but is too shy to chat with her, so he slips a note in her purse in hopes that she'll e-mail him. Unfortunately, her response reveals that she found his behavior 'completely unacceptable.' But Coco's lost suitcase, mistakenly swapped with Webb's at the airport, connects the teens, and through attempts to be reunited with their luggage, they start an online flirtation. Coincidentally, Andrew and Daisy cross paths and the sparks fly, while their kids' clandestine rendezvous ends awkwardly. Klise's portrait of modern romance is infused with the trappings of a digitized world, and while she wraps up all the loose ends too swiftly, the brisk pace will keep readers happily engaged.
