Melissa Baldwin and Kate O’Keeffe are two chick lit authors I’m very familiar with, so when I saw their names together on One Way Ticket: A Romantic Comedy, you bet I got excited to read this. The blurb sounded promising; I loved the cover and from chapter one, I was happily engaged in this story. Addison Bloom meets Sabrina Monroe at the airport – in her wedding dress. Sabrina is the classic runaway bride, crawling out of a window to escape her wedding. Addison is still smarting from having made a huge life change for love and having that implode, and is coming back from yet another wedding for a friend. The two women meet and agree … to switch lives. Sure, that might seem a little out there, but I honestly thought it worked for them. Both run a floral shop so it was easy for them to switch careers, and it just seemed like the right thing for them to do, and I was eager to see how their switch would go.
I had a blast seeing how everything started to come together for each character. There were certain areas that could have come across as too predictable, but that didn’t bother me because it was such fun reading this. I loved the flower shop lingo, all the romantic entanglements, and the friendship that started to form between Sabrina and Addison. I read One Way Ticket: A Romantic Comedy very quickly because it was so entertaining, and would highly recommend you add this to your reading list if you are a lover of chick lit!
