NYJB reviewer Herkness comments that Come Fly with Me by Addison Fox is a pleasant contemporary romance, but what gives this book a special depth is it’s unusual setting. Few romance novels rely on the setting as integral to their story.
In Come Fly with Me the 49th state is front and center. Ms. Herkness writes:
“Come Fly with Me invites the reader to take an airborne journey with an engaging pair of lovers to discover the beauties of the Alaskan frontier.”
Author Fox’s vivid descriptions add beauty and intensity to the story. In this approach, Ms. Herkness is a kindred spirit. In her new novel, Take Me Home, her home state of West Virginia enriches the story with animated descriptions of the surrounding mountains and landscapes. The romance in both books is cradled in resplendent vistas. Recently interviewed, Ms. Herkness spoke about the “beautiful, ancient Appalachian mountains that offer her characters strength, peace, and a sense of perspective.”
