Girl on a Plane by Cassandra O’Leary features Irish Sinead Kennealy, a head flight attendant dodging an abusive ex-lover with stalking tendencies. As a consequence, she is off men, or she is until she falls into the lap, literally, of a First Class passenger when Mermaid Flight 180 from Melbourne to London hits turbulence. Rich Australian businessman, Gabriel Anderson, has troubles of his own, but finds his jaded appetite for women revives when he sees Sinead. A diversion to Singapore leaves them stranded overnight at the airport, mistakenly booked into the same suite, which Sinead isn’t about to give up, or share with a male stranger however attractive and sexy. Gabriel is in desperate need of love and support himself, but will he open up and tell Sinead what he fears most, or is any possibility of a committed relationship doomed?

Showtime! Incredibly, that is what Mermaid Airlines expects of its female flight attendants. Read Cassandra O’Leary’s brilliantly funny introduction to Sinead in Girl on a Plane and you’ll never sit through an emergency "drill" again without laughing. The storyline is intriguing, not funny, but it is sexy. Ms O’Leary’s warning to readers that her novel is a bumpy ride is justified. Bumpy, yes, but Girl on a Plane is fast-paced, character-driven, and believable but unpredictable. No one person can have based so many different aspects of life, and love, on experience, so this light-hearted story must have taken time to research. Cassandra O’Leary’s writing is captivating and I look forward to reading more from this talented author.
