ONE FLIGHT UP by SUSAN FALES-HILL

Congratulations
TaraUB!
Please email me your full name and address at stephanieelliot@gmail.com
so I can send you your book!






Susan Fales-Hill is an accomplished writer who has  not only written novels but I was surprised to find out she also wrote for some of my favorite TV shows back in the day – The Cosby Show and A Different World. I’m excited to bring you One Flight Up, which The New York Post calls “A chick lit masterpiece that leaves Jackie Collins in the dust!” …


There’s Abby Rosenfeld Adams, a Jewish gallery owner married to her Wasp college sweetheart, Monique Dawkins-Dubois, gynecologist and card carrying member of Harlem’s thriving Buppie-ocracy, and Esme Santiago Talbot, a Columbian heiress married to the All-American boy next door. When India, the most straight-laced of them all, learns that her friends are considering straying from their partners, she is dismayed. That is, until India’s ex-fiance, the love of her life, the destroyer of her heart, and the best sex ever, comes back into her life – and she finds herself caught between the dependable man she thought was her future and the man she never quite let go of. 

To win One Flight Up, tell me if you and some of your best girlfriends could sneak away somewhere for a quick vacation, where would you choose to go? Some of my friends and I are going to Vegas in November! (Not my first choice – my first choice would be a beach destination, but my first choice really isn’t a place I want to put on a bathing suit either!)

It is always at my discretion to change things up, and because of some regulations, I guess I must say that the books I review are given to me by either the authors or publishers or publicists, and I am never paid for my reviews, and they are my own personal reviews, and you know what, because I'm here telling you this anyway, I will also tell you that I never review a book I don't like, because you know what, why waste my time, life is too short to read a crappy book! There.

My best friend from college and I go away for a long weekend every year. Last year we went on a cruise. We had to skip this year due to the timing of my baby, but I think we are going to do Charleston next year.

robynn78 said...

On a wine tour of Southwestern Michigan... lots of wine, lots of fun, lots of talking, that would be the best! I mean its not far away from where we live, there are some fantastic wineries, and of course with the friends makes the weekend so much better!

MonaLisa said...

A beach. Doesn't matter where or when.

Emma S. said...

Fiji or Bora Bora!

jdstec said...

kathygold9778 said...

I want to go somewhere far...where we need to take a plane...as long as it is not in driving distance...I don't care where we go. My husband won't fly so I'm going to have to see all the far off places of the world w/ a friend.

Crystal said...

Someplace with a beach and BLUE water!! (you may think all beaches have blue water...have you SEEN texas beaches?)

BrendaL71 said...

If my girlfriends and I could get away...we would probably choose Napa Valley. It's beautiful and there's plenty of wine. YAH!

absolutahnie said...

Margie said...

We'd like to go to a beach in Mexico, probably Puerto Vallarta

We'd go to London for sure. We spent a semester there in college, and still completely love that city.

Juliet Farmer said...

the beach/ocean.

The Poty's said...

I think our schedules lining up to go any where would be wonderful! It's just nice when we can all get together for dinner these days.

LynnBelo said...

tropical is nice, but swim suits scare the bejezus out of me right now, but anywhere where we can just sit and talk over drinks is fine with me!

Dolly said...

A cruise...to anywhere! Best - vacations - ever!

Lizett34 said...

Anywhere in Europe =)!

Neckmeat said...

Hawaii works for me & my girls! :)

Jenn3128 said...

My girls & I would go to NOLA!

Nanette said...

I'm thinking New Orleans would be really fun! I've never been there and I know me and my peeps would have an amazing time. But we'd have fun ANYWHERE so yeah...GIRLS TRIP BABY!!! Man...that sounds fun right about now. :)

Have a great weekend, Manic! Nan

Kimmi said...

Somewhere were there are no men or children. :)

keltban said...

Somewhere warm and near a beach. Miami or Key West....but anywhere where we all could get away would be great!

Melissa said...

Anywhere with a beach, spa, oversized lounge chairs and pool side cocktails. Melissa Rem

Susan said...

Someplace warm and exotic - A place where we could be pampered, there would be lots of good food and loads of fun drinks. We would just laugh and talks and be girls together!

DaphneSFL said...

Napa Valley for a week of wine drinking

Bev V said...

We'd probably end up in Vegas, or Atlantic City is closer to home (and therefore, cheaper)

cindy r said...

Since I live in Miami, some place cold with a fireplace. writeoncindy@yahoo.com

animallover75 said...

We would go to Gattlinburg TN.
Shopping.

Sherry said...

CAnative said...

There are 4 of us that go on these mom weekends as often as possible. Usually to the shore for a few days at a time. We once went to Canada for a four day get-away! We had a blast. Honestly I don't care where the destination is as long as we can all find the open time to get together. We always have great stories about our trips no matter where it is.

Christina said...

We tried to do a trip to Vegas this spring since we all turned 30 this year...but it fell through :( I would love to do that or somewhere warm in the winter, like Florida!!

ludy2288 said...

definetely a beach somewhere sipping delish fruity cocktails

Amy said...

Definitely either the Bahamas or Bermuda. We all love the Caribbean, but both of these places are just as nice and airfare would be less from where we are coming from.

My closest friends and I would love to take a cruise, possibly Alaska. We'd have time to catch up, read and relax, and get in some sight-seeing too.

Somewhere beachy and relaxing...maybe Hawaii.

Liz said...

ohhh, anywhere on the beach! My dream vacation destination is Fiji.

Probably New York or someplace beachy. Hopefully this will happen someday but with everyone having no money, having babies and getting married it is difficult!

I'd love to meet up with a few of my friends in Hawaii. There were several of us back at our last duty station that hung out together and Hawaii is actually kind of a middle point for all of us right now.

kimmy25 said...

New York in the winter!

buttah said...

Totally tropical...warm sun, soft sand, blue water and cold cocktails!! Heaven!!

Bernadette7 said...

i make it a habit to sneak away with the ladies -we've doen vegas but we usually opt for Montauk - beach and bars doesn't get better

Leslie said...

I would definitely pick the beach. There is just something about sitting near the water, having cocktails, and talking. LeslieGC

Lesley Davis, Esq said...

NYC for sure!

Colleen Turner said...

My ideal trip would be Hawaii...with lots of sun, sand, and umbrella drinks and no phones or responsibilities for just a little while!

Lindsay Elizabeth said...

Sonoma or Napa! Although the beach would be fantastic!

MamamicheleTN said...

Michigan on Blue Lake at my friend'd family cottage. We always meet there! It is wonderful!

Melissa said...

A spa weekend ANYWHERE! Or a place where we could sit and read on a beach all day!

Melissa A from CLC

Joelle said...

since my gf's and I are scattered all over the eastern US we'd probably meet somewhere somewhat central and just hole up in a hotel and take day trips from there.

Leah B said...

Somewhere all inclusive [I don't want that bar bill] and tropical.

BethC said...

Going to the Carribean next week! But, so badly want to go to Hawaii!
