Wow! Who knew jumping from planes was so exhilarating?? Jennifer Ryder, obviously, duh!!! This book has everything I love about a romance novel. There is pace, humour, wit, complications, resolutions, laugh out loud, tear up complications, resolutions, and love. Ryder has performed this formula with the expertise of a tandem skydiver on his 800th jump.    giphy

Tandem is a story of second chances. It is told in a THEN/NOW format which helps with the story flow. There was never a moment where I was annoyed at the jump backs in time, in fact I anticipated what the next one would hold. My heart broke and healed whilst reading this story. It was such an easy read, and I am so in love with the way Ryder pens words. You’ll fall *out of a perfectly good plane* for this story.

(Please note – there are no skydiving cats involved in this book…but I love this gif!)

Blurb:

Kyle Kingston-Moore has a reputation.

Adrenaline seeker. Commitment-phobe. Gigolo of the skies.

He’s worked tirelessly to make a success out of Sensational Skydives, on occasion providing extra services to deliver the ultimate jump experience. The adrenaline helps him forget the loneliness and the gaping whole left in his heart. When the rush wears off, he’s on the hunt again—a vicious circle of avoidance.

Kalani Hart knows all about avoidance.

Wide-open spaces. Social situations. Uncontrolled environments.

For years, fear has crippled Kalani’s attempts to lead a normal life after a random attack that tore her family apart. Finally, Kalani is on her way to recovery. She knows she needs to face her nightmares, but taking the plunge is easier said than done. When her therapist challenges her to take on skydiving, item number one on her bucket list, Kalani has to decide if she’s truly ready to take charge of her life.

Will one tandem jump with Kyle be the key to Kalani getting her life back, or will they both find themselves stranded in a place where their hearts decide what happens next?

When the adrenaline is this high, anything can happen.

Friendship is a million little moments, but can it survive this one? Three friends embark on a luxury cruise to celebrate their ten-year reunion in this heartfelt story of how long-held secrets can catch up with even the best of friends. Life was about living, experiencing and emotions. The good and the bad. You had to laugh to cry. You had to love to hurt. You had to jump to fall or fly.

Best friends Abbie, Jess and Ricki are setting sail on a cruise ship, rekindling the excitement of a school excursion they took ten years earlier to the historic port town of Albany, the oldest city on the stunning turquoise coastline of Western Australia. But are they truly prepared for what this voyage will reveal? Ricki, a dedicated nurse, harbours a dream she hasn’t chased. Is she actually happy or stuck in a rut? Jess, a school teacher and single mother to little Ollie, had a tough upbringing but found her way through with the help of her closest male friend, Peter. But Peter has bought an engagement ring and is ready to propose to Ricki . . .Abbie had it all: a career, a loving boyfriend and a future, but a visit to the doctor bears scary news. Her world is tumbling down and she feels adrift at sea.

SECRETS BETWEEN FRIENDS is a poignant novel of romance, family dynamics
and friendship. Through her highly relatable, sympathetic characters, beloved
Australian storyteller Fiona Palmer writes about issues, experiences
and emotions we have all faced while posing the ultimate question: What is
really important in this life?
