Planes, Trains, and All the Feels is a dual POV romcom that follows two characters trying to get across the U.S. but facing barriers every step of the way.
Cassidy is rushing to California for her sisters wedding. As the maid of honor, she’s got things to do in order to help her sister have her dream wedding. Luke is traveling to get to his mother and sister.
From the minute Cassidy hits the airport parking garage, Luke is in her path. First, he steals her parking spot. Then he’s seated by her on the plane…a plane that is diverted mid flight for safety issues. Stranded in a small town and needing to get to California, Cassidy and Luke agree to share a rental car. A series of misadventures follow (by the title, you may guess the rental car doesn’t quite work out!). As they travel across the country there is some back and forth between these two completely opposite people: breakthroughs followed by breakdowns. The build between them is very slow. I was a little frustrated with them and their lack of actual communication paired with relying heavily on assumptions about each other. I wasn’t disappointed in the end though.
This is an easy read but I wouldn’t say there are a lot of surprises. The succession of events was a little exhausting (maybe that’s a personal thing since my travel always seems to have the most unimaginable barriers come up and I’m sensitive to that!). Overall this was an enjoyable quick getaway from everyday life.
