Neely’s family trip to Mexico starts out as one last hurrah before college. She’s determined to make this her trip, in spite of the fact that her parents are celebrating their twenty-fifth anniversary and that her sister is back from college. But her trip turns into love at first sight with a young man who is attracted to Neely’s old-fashioned sentimentalism and love for the disadvantaged people of his country.
Another guy, desperate for her attention, stalks her. At first it seems innocent, but his stunts become more serious, even dangerous at times. The worst incident changes her fear into courage, and she forced to take action. Now that Neely has had the trip of her life, she must leave the beautiful beaches of Mexico, a guy she’ll never forget, and impoverished people that she’s determined to help. How can she leave this all behind?
Excerpt from Love at First Flight:
“I saw someone by the pool last night. It scared me for a moment. I’m not even sure it was him.” I was pretty sure it was though. The figure had his build, short and stocky. And who else would be out in the rain standing there watching me. That’s what he’d said, too, that he’d be watching me.
Angelo forced his hands onto his hips. “I should have insisted that you let me walk you to your room.”
He pursed his lips, his eyes hard as he looked deeply into mine. “This resort has almost a thousand guests. I had hoped you would not see him again. Did you tell your family?”
I shook my head. “No. They won’t let me out of their sight if I do.”
His eyes narrowed, causing sprays of lines to gather at the corner of his eyes.
“Angelo, I can’t tell them. You don’t understand. If they knew about this, I’d be miserable for the rest of the trip.”
He looked away in thought. “Then you will have to stay with me.”
I nodded, appreciating his concern, but feeling a tinge of guilt that he was so worried. I didn’t like telling him about the creepy guy, but Angelo being by my side would definitely be a plus.
