Hey Everyone!

Last year I read Love at First Flight by Tess Woods and loved it so much that I threw it at all my friends. Well, not literally, I might have damaged my ereader, but I did talk about it to everyone and have managed to bring it up in conversations many times since then.

I'm not the only one who loved it either. It won the 2015 AusRom Today Reader's Choice Award!

Today, Love at First Flight has been released in paperback with a gorgeous new cover.


Isn't it pretty! And that cover captures the emotional turmoil of Mel, the main character, so well. 

I'm hosting a giveaway of one paperback copy, open to Australian residents only.


In case you're not sure about entering, here's the blurb to tempt you in.

What if the love of your life is not your husband? A compelling novel that will appeal to fans of Liane Moriarty, viewers of Offspring, The Good Wife and movies like Up in the Air. 
'Looking back on it now, I can see it was instant. The second we locked eyes. Boom. Just like that. The me I had spent a lifetime perfecting began its disintegration from that moment. And despite the carnage it brought to all our lives, I still don't regret it. 
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 avoiding. As the repercussions hit friends and family, Mel's dream romance turns into nightmare. She learns that there are some wounds that never heal and some scars that you wouldn't do without. 
LOVE AT FIRST FLIGHT will take everything you believe about what true love is and spin it on its head.

And if that's not enough to convince you to enter, here's my five-star review from last year.

Matt and Mel met on a plane. They were both in committed relationships, but had an instant connection and had an affair. I generally don't like adultery stories, but this one didn't play out like I was expecting it to and I loved the way it ended. 
It was told in alternating POV between Mel and Matt. Mel was a flawed character who grew throughout the book. She had become complacent in her marriage and came to the understanding that she had contributed to her marriage problems. I really liked Matt, he was a little bit cocky and very passionate.

I loved the Australian setting with references to places that I am familiar with. There was a great blend of sexual tension, smutty bits, friendship and family. I don't give out the five stars very often, only when a book really makes me feel something. This book did make me laugh at times, but it also made me stop and take a closer look at my own relationship.

Now scroll back up and enter the giveaway. But if I've done my job too well, and you don't want to wait a whole week for me to select a winner, you can grab your copy in store at any good bookshop or online at Booktopia (ships to Australia and New Zealand).
