Reviews
"One woman's mid-life crisis turns into a hilarious and touching adventure in Kim Wright's latest heartwarming tale. A book for anyone who needs reminding that sometimes the journey to find answers is more important than the destination."--Colleen Oakley, author of BEFORE I GO
"An insightful novel about the unexpected places where we stumble upon second chances. Kim Wright writes with wisdom and grace."--Sarah Pekkanen, bestselling author of THE BEST OF US
"Kim Wright understands storytelling through and through and she has written a warm and lovely novel full of its magic. A tale of a diverse group of women and how their tales heal each other, The Canterbury Sisters is funny, wry, wise, and altogether satisfying."--Holly LeCraw, author of THE HALF BROTHER

Praise for THE CANTERBURY SISTERS

"With originality galore, Wright has crafted a wonderfully entertaining tale with flair... readers looking for something different need look no further."--RT Book Reviews
"Wright offers a modern-day tale imbued with Canterbury's enduring lore."--Booklist
"[Wright] gives us another warm and engaging novel."--Charlotte Observer
"Che de Marin is a terrific traveling companion for more than 300 pages."--Star News Media

"From the author of the overlooked gem Love in Mid Air (check it out in paperback), a joyful novel about regaining your midlife groove through ballroom dancing."--People, "Great Summer Reads"
"Wright's second novel, after Love in Mid Air (2010), captures our fear of the unknown and the tender joys of coming into one's own."--Booklist
"The Unexpected Waltz is [as] inspiring as [it is] awakening of oneself. Additionally, it feels genuine, as new beginnings and second chances aren't always prefect and fairy-tale like, even if outward appearances suggest otherwise. With strong characterization and a cast of intriguing secondary characters, the story dances its way through all the right steps as readers watch Kelly Wilder embrace waltzing through her new life, stumbles and all."--Romantic Times
"The novel has everything I look for in a good read: intrigue, interesting characters at a crossroads and a comfortable authority that allows me to surrender to whatever happens next. What's more, the novel is set in Charlotte."--Charlotte Observer
"I often read books that eventually pull me in, but it is an all-too-rare experience for me to browse the first page of a new book and become instantly hooked, as I was with The Unexpected Waltz."--BookReporter.com
Praise for LOVE IN MID AIR
