The Art of Crash Landing
This evening we’re pleased to welcome debut novelist Melissa DeCarlo with a new novel perfect for book clubs, The Art of Crash Landing. Pregnant and broke, Mattie Wallace jumps at the chance to leave the Florida panhandle for her mother’s hometown in Oklahoma when she learns a grandmother she never met has left her an inheritance. There, she uncovers the unexpected truth of her mother’s happy early life, casting light on her own downward spiral and possibly saving her from a similar fate.
