Love at First Flight is one of those great holiday reads – take it on the plane or the beach and while away the time.

Funny that, because the ‘first flight’ of the titles refers to the heroine Mel’s own flight from her home in Perth to Melbourne for a girls’ weekend with her best friend. Mel is a successful GP, married to another successful doctor, handsome anaesthetist Adam. With a beautiful home and two lovely children, Mel wants for nothing. Or does she? The last thing she is expecting on the flight is to fall in love with a handsome man who is younger than her – and engaged. But that’s exactly what happens, proving that life isn’t always predictable.

Matt’s intended is the gorgeous Lydia, apparently a great catch, but when Matt meets Mel he realises that he isn’t really in love with Lydia at all, and with the wedding fast approaching, he really needs to make some hard decisions. Lydia is on his back about wedding cakes and houses, and many other things Matt has absolutely zero interest in, when it dawns on him that he has nothing in common with his fiancé and he really must pursue Mel, even though she is married with two children and living thousands of miles away in Perth.

Love at First Flight takes two seemingly normal and picture perfect relationships and turns them on their head, showing that life isn’t always what it seems and that it’s often pretty complicated. When Mel and Matt decide to pursue their passion, it’s not just the two of them who are affected by their love affair – it has far-reaching repercussions for their whole family, as they will soon find out.

TessWoodsAs we turn the pages, eager to find out what will happen to Mel and Matt, we can’t help but questions our ideas of love and relationships in this thought provoking, page-turning novel.

              Mel is living the dream. She's a successful GP, married to a charming anaesthetist and raising a beautiful family in their plush home in Perth. But when she boards a flight to Melbourne, her picture-perfect life unravels. Seated on the plane she meets Matt, and for the first time ever she falls in love. What begins as a flirty conversation quickly develops into a hot and obsessive affair with consequences that neither Mel nor Matt seems capable of facing. As the fallout touches friends and family, Mel's dream romance turns into a nightmare. She learns that there are some wounds that never heal and some scars that you wouldn't do without.Watch our live interview with Tess Woods below:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NS671qYRxk
