love at first flightSummary:

What would you risk to be with the love of your life? A family is threatened by an irresistible attraction in this compelling debut that will appeal to fans of Liane Moriarty and Anita Shreve.

Looking back on it now, I can see it was instant. the second we locked eyes. Boom. Just like that. the me I had spent a lifetime perfecting began its disintegration from that moment. And despite the carnage it brought to all our lives, I still don’t regret it.

What would you risk to be with the love of your life? And what if your soul mate is the one who will destroy you?

Mel is living the dream. She’s a successful GP, married to a charming anaesthetist and raising a beautiful family in their plush home in Perth. But when she boards a flight to Melbourne, she meets Matt and her picture perfect Stepford life unravels as she falls in love for the first time ever.

What begins as a flirty conversation between strangers quickly develops into a hot and obsessive affair with disastrous consequences neither Mel nor Matt could have ever seen coming. Mel’s dream life turns into her worst nightmare.

Love at First Flight will take everything you believe about what true love is and spin it on its head.



Oh my word. This book was freaking amazing. Yes, it could be hard to read because it is essentially about a woman having an affair. But it’s so much more than that. It’s real and honest and deep and painful and made my hands shake and tears flow out of my eyes. I loved that we got both the POVs from Mel and Matt. I think a lot could have been missing if we didn’t understand Matt as well. There were two definite times in the book that I remember just sitting back in a daze, feeling my emotions scatter everywhere at the words I was reading. This book really moved me, and I couldn’t give it any less than the 5 stars it deserves.
