Contemp Review: Blue Skies [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "Blue Skies" by Robyn Carr.

Product Description

Nikki Burgess survived a terrible marriage and a worse divorce. She's just about given up hope of ever finding happiness. But when her ex-husband suddenly dies, she gets custody of her kids again — and a chance to start over.

Dixie McPherson, on the other hand, has had way too much love. She has eleven tennis bracelets, dozens of trinkets, piles of sexy lingerie and a tarnished reputation when all she ever wanted was true love, a partner and a family.

Carlisle Bartlett is loyal, kindhearted and the funniest guy slinging drinks in the back of an airplane. But he has an ugly little secret. The only kind of love he's used to comes with bruises.

When Nikki, Dixie and Carlisle are offered the chance to join a new airline in Las Vegas, they don't hesitate.

With nothing to lose and everything to gain, these three friends are going in search of their own blue skies.

My Review:

Nikki Burgess was in a horrible marriage and an even worst divorce.  She's just about to give up on finding happiness when he ex-husband suddenly dies and she gets custody of her kids.  She gets a chance to start over again.

Dixie McPherson has known a lot of love and she has the mementos to back it up - eleven tennis bracelets, tons of trinkets, piles of sexy lingerie and a bad reputation.  All she wanted was to find true love, get married and have a family.

Carlisle Bartlett is a very likeable, kindhearted, loyal and funny loving guy that makes drinks at the back of an airplane.  He is hiding a terrible secret and the only relationship/love he finds is ones that leave him battered and bruised.

Then Nikki, Dixie and Carlisle are given a chance to start over at a new airline in Las Vegas and they don't hesitate to join.

This was an interesting read because of three different story lines and how they are intertwined with each other.  You really feel for Dixie and Carlisle because of the abuse and stuff both had to put up with.  You feel very sorry for Nikki with her situation her ex-husband put her in.
