In The Bag by Kate Klise

Daisy is traveling with her teenage daughter Coco to Paris.  When they arrive and Coco goes through her bag excited to take out the carefully picked out skirts, peasant tops, and super cure shoes, instead she find wadded up t-shirts and dirty pants.  Ugh.  Who packs dirty pants???

WRONG bag.

Andrew is traveling with his teenage son Webb.  Andrew had noticed the very attractive  woman sitting in 6-B, with her younger sister.  Ummm… too cheesy?  Ok her daughter, but she doesn’t look like she could have a teenage daughter!  He decided to slip a note in her purse when she is not looking.  When they arrive Web finds that he has the wrong bag…. filled with expensive shirts and clothing items he can not even identify.

While Andrew and Daisy try to figure out how to get the bag mix up settled, they are unaware that Webb and Coco are also working on their own “reunion”.

Kate Klise was the fourth of six children born to educational film producer Thomas and Marjorie Klise. Raised in Peoria, Illinois, she attended Marquette University and spent fifteen years working as a correspondent for People magazine.[2] She currently resides on a farm with a pond near Norwood, Missouri , where she has many friends who she describes as kind, generous, and always thoughtful. “My nicest characters always resemble them,” said Kate Klise. She is a vegetarian, who loves tomato sandwiches. ~Wikepedia

I knew when I chose this book it sounded like fun.  Visions of light summer reading, smiles and the occasional giggle escaping me while I sat on the deck slathered in tanning lotion drinking ice tea…

well that was the plan.

The book delivered, the weather did not.

Either way, In The Bag was as I had expected.  Reading the synopsis I knew this one was just going to be candy for my brain. I liked the alternation chapters between our four protagonists, Daisy, Coco, Andrew, and Web.  The note that Andrew stuck in Daisy’s purse cracked me up… totally GUY.  😛  The email exchanges are light and fun. 

In the end, a quick, fun, read.  That if you are going to the beach, this one need to be, in the bag.  😉

Thank you TLC book tours for a fun summery type book that made me crave beaches and warm sand.
