About the Book:
A successful chef and single mother, Daisy Sprinkle is on vacation with her teenage daughter, Coco, who picks up the wrong duffel bag at the airport.  The situation is not improved by the note Daisy finds tucked into her carry-on, apparently from the man in 13-C.

Andrew doesn't know what possessed him to do something like that.  Hitting on strange women on airplanes is definitely not his typical style. But there was something about the woman in 6-B that could not be ignored, and his son, Webb, seems to have made off with a budding fashionista's luggage.

Both parents try to make the best of a bad situation, but little do Daisy and Andrew know that the teens are making their own that will ultimately reunite Ms. 6-B and Mr. 13-C.

My Thoughts: 
In a round-a-bout way this story reminded me of the movie "The Parent Trap", which has always been one of my favorites.  The idea of the wrong luggage being taken is totally believable and highly possible considering the popularity of air travel today.  It was fun to read about this set of characters and the predicament they find themselves in.  I laughed from the very beginning.  I also felt horrible for Coco.  Imagine finding yourself in Paris with boys clothing!  No one wants that.  My favorite aspect of this novel is its unique storyline.  I haven't read anything like this in quite awhile.  I loved the settings, it was as if I traveled to Paris and Madrid without really going, which is perfect for me.  The plot, characters and setting make this book a great read.  It's everything I love about reading.  It's an escape, an adventure, a mystery and a whole lot of fun.  If your looking for something different to read on the beach this summer, you'll want to pick up a copy of In the Bag.
