Fly, Pray, Love:
A Laugh Out Loud Romantic Comedy
by Kerry Taylor
Josephine is 35 and fed up with never being in love. On her solo trip to the Bahamas, she has the pleasure of sitting next to Robert, who in her eyes is Brad Pitt. When she reveals this out loud, they name each other Brad and Beyoncé.
Robert, 37, is in a long-term, unhappy relationship with Amanda.
Josephine spends her time in the Bahamas, trying to find out which hotel Amanda and Brad (a.k.a. Robert) are staying in. Instead, she finds herself in a compromising situation with a local grandfather which leads to newspaper headlines: "Warning, Warning – Foreigner In Our Lands – Out To Steal Our Fathers!"
And with this advertising campaign, all ladies in their 30s declare, “Why am I going to Jamaica? To get myself a young, strong black Jamaican man? Do not go to Africa, to get you a young, fit native. Go to the Bahamas, to get a 75 year old man!”
Do Brad and Beyoncé ever reunite? Is it too late? Has Brad committed to Amanda and got married? Has Beyoncé settled down? These are the questions in both of their minds.
Fly, Pray, Love is a cross-Atlantic romance in which US meets UK in this laugh-out-loud romantic comedy.
They go through Gatwick airport, and then stop at Duty Free.
I ask “Olivia - Is this a good idea? We only have 20 minutes to get to the gate!”
Olivia replies “Sure, we are near the gate no problem.”
Then I realise, that it is only Olivia and I in Duty Free.
I ask “Where are the rest of the guys?”
Suddenly there is a gush of wind.
It is the other 3 rushing by. They are calling us guys they are saying it is the Final Call. Sure! Very funny. There it is the announcement:
Can Olivia Brent, Kanesha Grant, Josephine Mensah, Sandra Wilson and Natasha Thomas please make your way to Gate number 20, this is the final call.
I shout, “Shit, they are right, they are calling our names!”
Like mad women, we all rush to the gate, like our lives depended on it.
Olivia with her curvy figure, and tight clothing was running with one breast hanging out of her low cut top. Running like it was the first time she was ever run in her life, we pointed out about her breasts – and all she could scream was – “ I do not care! I do not care!”
Sandra’s red wig was half falling off, and she had one hand trying to hold it on and the other trying to hold her three bottles which she managed to purchase at Duty Free, with her luggage. Olivia’s cousin and always good for a laugh. She clearly did not look well, with her blood shot eyes.
Kanesha lost a shoe, and did not even try to figure out how to rectify it, but instead of taking the other shoe off so that she could run faster; decided the best thing to do was to keep on running.
“We need to get on the plane now!”
The obvious runners in the group – Sandra and Natasha were already at the gate, they were the rushing gush of wind that passed us, when they heard their names called and had no hesitation or confidence that they would not make the plane!
When, we arrived at the gate. The ladies were cool and collective.
The rest of us look like we had been beaten, run over a bus and strangled, before we got on the plane. It was obvious that we looked a state, due to the faces of the air stewardesses when we got there. They did not even want to see our passports, they went bright red when they saw us – stating they just needed our boarding passes and quickly let us through.
This book has a lot of light-hearted moments that will make you laugh and smile. Josephine's character is a riot. She seems to find herself in certain predicaments. This is a cute romantic comedy that you will be able to breeze through since it's such a quick read.
