Allison Ross hides her own artistic talent, painting under another name, as she is busy running a successful Chelsea art gallery and a smaller summer months gallery on Martha's Vineyard. Taking a short vacation in Florida, her rest is shortened as she is called back to her family's home by her father's death in an auto accident that might just have been murder. Allison isn't really happy about having to sit Shiva with her mother and doctor brother Jeremy, but then she learns that she has inherited a family cottage in Maine that she assumed was sold years before. And to top things off, she has inherited control of her father's company, RossAir, which leases jets to private corporations. It is Allison's job to select a successor to her father, Daniel, as the actual head of RossAir. The most likely candidate is Harvard and MIT educated Alexander Coventry who is also handsome, charming and a total "snakeoil salesman" from a wealthy Atlanta family. Poor Allison! It looks as if her cousin Bradley may have "cooked" the RossAir books and all signs point to someone within RossAir as her father's murderer. Or did Alex plan her father's death?
"Come Fly With Me" is a chick lit at its very, very best. Allison and Alex look like a match made in heaven, but then there is Allison's gay (or is he gay) neighbor Kenyon, Ritchie Patrick, or Michael Essex. Allison's family wants her to settle down and produce grandchildren, but Allison has hidden worries from years before. The dialogue in "Come Fly with Me" is delightful, realistic and keeps the plot moving towards the story's conclusion. And humor abounds where it should, not overwhelming the text, as on page 104, Allison states "My default setting is bitch." A gutsy, beautiful heroine, good dialogue, a good story line, several potential bad guys, and one definitely "Mr. Right". How much better can chick lit get?
