Baggage Claim

A Novel

In this national bestseller and basis for the smash hit movie starring Paula Patton, Baggage Claim is the story of one woman who decides that she’s done flying solo.

When her baby sister announces she’s getting married in thirty days, sexy but single flight attendant Montana Moore realizes that she’s soon to be the oldest—and only—unwed woman in her family. With the help of fellow flight attendants and a zany network of airline employees, Montana embarks on a thirty-day, thirty-thousand-mile expedition to charm a potential suitor into becoming her fiancé.

Acclaimed author and director David E. Talbert welcomes you aboard a hilarious, witty, and charming tale where the final destination is the altar.
