About the Author

Linda Holmes is a novelist, a pop culture correspondent for NPR, and one of the hosts of the popular podcast Pop Culture Happy Hour, which has held sold-out live shows in New York, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and elsewhere. She appears regularly on NPR radio shows including Morning Edition, All Things Considered, and Weekend Edition. Before NPR, she wrote for New York magazine online and for TV Guide, as well as for the groundbreaking website Television Without Pity. Her first novel, Evvie Drake Starts Over, was a New York Times bestseller. In her free time, she watches far too many romantic comedies, bakes bread, plays with her wonderful dog, and tries to keep various plants thriving.

Reviews

"A refreshing reminder that there's no one-size-fits-all mold for a relationship, and that fulfillment can be achieved many ways."--The Washington Post

"Linda Holmes' sophomore novel Flying Solo is a near-perfect, feel-good summer escape for those of us who are not always satisfied with the traditional happily-ever-after."--USA Today

"Flying Solo is a testament to the truth that love comes in all shapes, sizes, and situations; that being alone does not mean being lonely. And Linda Holmes creates characters and conversations so real that sometimes I wonder if she is hiding in my closet, eavesdropping."--Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of Wish You Were Here

"Linda Holmes has crafted another moving and tender novel full of bighearted characters, smalltown charm, and deep truths about life. Flying Solo is a perfect book for anyone who feels a little separate from the flock."--Rebecca Serle, New York Times bestselling author of One Italian Summer

"It's impossible to read Linda Holmes without smiling. Flying Solo has everything: life decisions, second chances, intrigue, skulduggery, and a hot librarian! I loved it."--Clare Pooley, New York Times bestselling author of The Authenticity Project

"Flying Solo is warm and comforting, like a weekend with your favorite people, sharing their funniest stories and hardest-won wisdom. After two very tough years, this lovely book is exactly what we all need."--Kate Stayman-London, bestselling author of One to Watch

"Holmes's sophomore novel is a wise, heartwarming story of family, unexpected romance, and shaping your own path in a world where it often feels next to impossible to do so. It's a beautiful mystery and a tale of self-searching tied into one."--Carola Lovering, author of Tell Me Lies

"Holmes blends humor, emotional depth, and small-town charm in this delightful story about the bonds of family and friendship, showing how even the most independent people need someone to lean on. Readers will love spending time with Laurie and her friends."--Booklist (starred review)

"Holmes's colorful cast of characters pop off the page, and the sure-footed plot entertains. Readers will be eager to see what Holmes does next."--Publishers Weekly

"Charming, often hilarious . . . a delight from start to finish. Holmes has clearly done her research into how public librarians spend their time, and she also asks serious questions about how to make hard choices and live one's life."--Library Journal (starred review)

"A charming and easygoing look at all kinds of love and the beauty of independence, featuring supremely likable characters."--Kirkus Reviews
