Erin is a young widow, with a small son. She recently purchased a dog daycare, and loves working with the dogs. When Drew drops in to leave his dog while he travels to visit his father in Arizona, he is not happy to see a new owner, and questions her abilities. Obviously not a good way to start a relationship. Drew also has issues with trust and is a Canadian military pilot. Erin lost her husband, who was a crop duster pilot, in a crash, so is not happy to know a bit about Drew's background either. Even more so when her son is obsessed with that part of Drew's life. Snowed in during a blizzard for several days, they are thrown together a lot, as well as Erin's parents and sibling and his family. A sweet story overall, although both Drew and Erin had such issues it was hard to see why they were a good fit. Would recommend though, especially if you like dogs.

Love Takes Flight by Margot Johnson is a romance, and my first book by this author.  I found this book hard to read, because I did not like the main female character, Erin Humphrey.  I understand why she thinks and acts the way she does, but it got old to me.  I stuck with the book, and it had a nice ending.  If you love romances, you might want to give this book a try.  I love the cover.
I reviewed a digital arc provided by NetGalley and the publisher.  Thank you.

Sweet and emotional story. I liked the way the relationship between Drew and Erin progressed, and the moments with her son Noah and the dogs were cute.

Love Takes Flight is a feel good sweet romance debut novel. Erin is a widowed single mother, and owner of a dog kennel business and Drew is an Airforce pilot. The characters were flawed but endearing, both were battling an issue from their past, present and future. The story started Drew dropping off his dog Jake and obviously wasn't to keen when he found out that there's a new owner at the kennel. Basically the two started off on a wrong foot, but thanks to the inclement weather condition he got no choice but to get stuck in Erin's house together with her son and family.

It may sound cliché to say that love heals all wounds or to talk about the healing power of love. But there is truth in these statements. Real love do really makes us feel accepted, secure, valued and valuable. I won't spill the entire details but I almost gave up with the stubborness that I wanted to shake them both if I was there. The angst was too real that at the some point I was having a hard time connecting with them. Anyway I love how the author meticulously made the two characters deal with their issues by learning how to trust people around you and to start it with yourself. At the end she also shows us that trust is the foundation of love, it precedes love and we can only truly love someone that we can trust.

I liked how this story begins with a major blizzard trapping the hero jet pilot Drew Dixon along with heroine Canine Corner dog kennel owner Erin Humphrey's family at Erin's house for a weekend. I also liked the dogs and how both Erin and Drew cared for them. Erin's son Noah is really cute. This was a fun read. I look forward to reading more stories by this author.

Takes Flight is Margot Johnson's debut novel and was a gratifying and heartfelt story that touched on phobias, learning to trust and the how love can “take flight” at the most unexpected times. Drew and Erin are both embarking on new challenges in their lives and neither is ready or open to a relationship when they have demons that still haunt them from past tragedies. But animals and children have an amazing way of drawing people together and providing common ground when everything is uncertain and new.

I enjoyed the character portrayals and the genuine emotion that shone through as Drew and Erin navigated their unexpected attraction. A strong storyline also added to the realism and believability of the angst and struggles they faced along the way. And let’s not forget Noah with his innocence and charm that is sure to win many reader’s hearts. A wonderful feel good story that I’m sure will be a hit.

Erin Humphrey’s husband was killed in a plane crash and she is raising their young son, Noah. She is the new owner of the Canine Corner Dog Kennel in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Drew Dixon is dropping off his dog, Jake, and is not happy that there is a new owner at the kennel. Is this someone he can trust with his dog? When a blizzard hits the area, Drew is stuck at Erin’s house along with her extended family. He is trying to earn his place with the SnoWings team, but trust in anyone, including his fellow pilots is difficult for him. Can he help Erin overcome her fear of planes while her family offers him friendship and trust? A very sweet romance between two people who realize what they really need is each other. I received an advance review copy at no cost and without obligation for an honest review. (by paytonpuppy)
