An Absolute Gem
5 out of 5 stars
I REALLY enjoyed this one. I rarely start a review giving it all away like that, but before I picked this one up, I hadn’t read anything from Lentzski, which will now change.
The Woman in 3B tells the story of a flight attendant, Alice, who has a work Bingo game she plays every month. This card has different challenges, usually involving passengers in some way – get someone’s number, have a passenger puke on your flight, and spill a drink on a passenger. When a chance encounter with a gorgeous woman, sitting in 3B, derails not only the game but also Alice’s life.
The story was so well written. Lentzski had me on the edge of my seat throughout, wondering, “will they” so many times I thought I’d be tired of the whiplash by the end. But, alas, I was not. The story was near perfect and had me smiling more than not. I liked the dynamic between these two women, and I thought they deserved each other.
Overall, with the addition of the excellent performance by Stefanie Kay, The Woman in 3B was a standout book of 2022 for me. It just made me feel all of the feels while also keeping it lighthearted enough that I didn’t feel sad for longer than a few moments.
The challenge was supposed to be simple. Spill a drink on an airline passenger and be one square closer to winning the company’s secret bingo card game. Twenty-five different challenges, at various levels of difficulty, had to be accomplished within a month’s time.
After nearly eight years of being a flight attendant, Alice Kaminski had spilled drinks on plenty of passengers, mostly on accident and during rough air. She didn’t particularly like the idea of the bingo card, but she had massive student debt; the financial incentives were enough to make her momentarily forget the questionable ethics of it all.
The challenge was supposed to be simple—that is, until Alice saw her intended target—the beautiful woman seated in 3B. And after that, nothing was simple ever again.
