Jul 28, Iluvbooks44 rated it it was amazing. A quick and easy read. I loved this book from start to finish. I love the characters and the story. Many romance stories wonderfully blended I quickly got absorbed into this tale of second chances, adoption, and the desire for commitment.
I rooted for all of the characters as well as sympathized with what they were experiencing. From William learning to face his past, Annie hoping her dream will come true, to Jill, the flight attendant, focused on her career. I could identify with their pain, loneliness, fears, and hopes for better. Erica, Evan, and Greg also have their part, their dreams, thei Many romance stories wonderfully blended I quickly got absorbed into this tale of second chances, adoption, and the desire for commitment.
Erica, Evan, and Greg also have their part, their dreams, their actions that lead the story, and change their lives. There is such a hopeful feel to this. It's not too late, embracing opportunities, and going for what you want. One theme was having the courage to go for what you want when it is offered.
Another theme was the importance of family and commitment to it. While there was mention of sex, there were no explicit sex scenes. I enjoyed the multiple POVs offered. It added to richness of the storyline. San Diego is where it happens in this story, and none of the characters will ever be the same after this visit. I enjoyed the author's First Class series, but felt a bit wary about this series. I am looking forward to reading Las Vegas, book 2.
Nov 05, Trudy Dowling rated it it was amazing. I have done the author a disservice. I purchased San Diego a long time ago and let it sit on my Kindle. This is a book that should have been read immediately. It should not have sat collecting dust. San Diego is such a feel good book I became addicted.
So many tingly moments. The book format was new to me. The couples don't know each other, the only connection is that at I have done the author a disservice. The couples don't know each other, the only connection is that at least one person of each couple was on the plane. I avoid them at all costs. San Diego was full of short, mini cliffhangers and I loved them. Something would happen with a couple. Then the author would elegantly switch stories giving you something new and wonderful while you wait. The wait was always worth it.
San Diego gives new meaning to HEA. All couples had a wonderful ending and the epilogues left me feeling all warm and fuzzy. This is one of those books that I wished I had back when I was widowed and needed to know there was a light at the end of the tunnel. Jul 26, Terry Moskowitz rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: I enjoyed this book it was refreshing to read a book about 3 separate people with life changes occurring in a positive manner.

While getting comfortable in her hotel room her boyfriend shows up to surprise her and after two days she has the biggest surprise of her life. William Nestor left his hometown years ago and never looked back. When his father dies he has to go back to San Dieg I enjoyed this book it was refreshing to read a book about 3 separate people with life changes occurring in a positive manner. When his father dies he has to go back to San Diego and deal with all his demons.
Annie and Evan are going to San Diego to adopt a daughter after years of disappointment. The surprise waiting for them is incredible. This was an inspirational book that made you want to hope for the best for them. From the flight there to their lives in San Diego the only thing entwining them was the flight. They all had their separate lives and it was interesting to read. The book was brilliantly written you had just enough of each character at a time that led to the end. I did not want to put this book down.
This book surprised me! I loved each individual story and could read each as a stand alone full-length novel! A flight attendant, soon to be adopting couple- who get a surprise of their lifetime, and an introvert doctor are all very different stories, but they come together beautifully in this book by AJ Harmon. Sometimes In a full length Novel a story can get too long and detailed, but This book surprised me! Sometimes In a full length Novel a story can get too long and detailed, but this story keeps you entertained because before you know it you're in a new chapter or one of the three main characters story.
Will recommend to all. AJ Harmon's writing is beautifully intertwined within these three stories to make one fast pace and entertaining read! This was a great book telling the lives of a few different people through one common link. Flight attendant Jill sees people coming and going all the time. It is a happy occasion?

Twists, turns, l This was a great book telling the lives of a few different people through one common link. Twists, turns, love and a few tears make the story an enjoyable one. I liked how Harmon wrote this book with several love stories included. Each story was different and all were wonderful. I like how the book started and ended with them all on the same flight.
That was a great way to tie all the stories together. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series. Oct 09, Vi rated it it was amazing.
