Review: One Flight Up by Susan Fales-Hill

One Flight Up by Susan Fales-Hill

Publisher: Washington Square Press 
Pages:  368
Format: book 
Buy the Book: Amazon  

Goodreads:  What happens after happily-ever-after fades? Can the answer be found one flight up?
India, Abby, Esme, and Monique have all been friends since their days at Manhattan’s Sibley School for Girls. From the outside, these four women—all grown up now—seem to be living ideal lives, yet each finds herself suddenly craving more.

Kritters Thoughts: Four women who are friends and three of which find themselves in unhappy marriages, while the other is still in the dating scene are the characters in this story.  For one reason or another each of these women are unhappy in their current situations and instead of working on them, would rather venture to find happiness with someone else.

I definitely enjoyed reading about four different women and their relationship with each other, their interactions were priceless.  As well, I loved reading about their professional lives - they were all successful in their own right, I loved it.  Reading about their relationships was the hard part.  I wanted to sock them a few times when it came to how they treated the men in their lives and how that impacted their children.

Being a newlywed, I am not sure this was the right time for me to read this book.  I am still blissful about marriages lasting a lifetime and in hope that everyone can find true happiness and live with their intended forever.  For a whole group of women to drift beyond their relationships was hard to read.

Rating: enjoyable, but didn't leave me wanting more
