Book Description

Publication Date: March 6, 2012
Can a long distance love affair really survive?Erica Shaw spends her week babysitting the country’s bestselling authors for one of the top publishing companies in New York City. But on Friday nights she escapes to DC, where her sexy-lipped musician boyfriend, Warren Prince, works and performs. Their connection is fierce, and the couple promises to never miss a weekend together. But when real life walks in—an overbearing father, an alcoholic mother, office politics, and a lucrative job contract—the couple starts unraveling at the seam. Tempers flare, violence breaks, while new lovers eagerly wait in the wings—to claim both of them.

Drenched in the perils of passion and the sweet-sounds of jazz, Johnson dives deep into the world of ambition and the stumbling blocks of family. Clever, fast-paced and sexy, Love in a Carry-on Bag is a modern day love story that marks the healing power of forgiveness and begs the question, how much baggage is really too heavy to carry.


My Review

Realistic, beautiful and witty are the first three words that come to mind when I reflect on Love in a Carry-On Bag by Sadeqa Johnson. Erica and Warren are in a long-distance relationship and they are committed to seeing one another every weekend rotating between Washington, D.C. and New York City. All seems to be going well with their arrangement until their work obligations begin to overlap with their personal time.

Johnson’s writing style is one that will keep you intrigued and make you feel as if you were inside of the pages. I could hear Warren’s trumpet playing and the emotions he felt as he grieved over his mother. I could feel and understand Erica’s reluctance yet willingness to help her mother every single time she found herself in a jam. The misunderstandings finding common ground, the numerous instances of miscommunication finding clarity, and the love between all characters no matter how dysfunctional will have you recommending Love in a Carry-On Bag to others.
