The Layover is an ideal escape—from the intriguing insider’s view of air travel to the picturesque setting on the shores of Belize, I was swept away on Ava’s journey as she spars with Jack, wrestles her feelings, and learns to trust her own heart. A fun and irresistible romance that soars.”—Libby Hubscher, author of Meet Me in Paradise

I absolutely loved it.”—Robin Reul, author of My Kind of Crazy and Where the Road Leads Us
