Sterling was holidaying solo following a divorce and was desperately seeking new pastures new, so what better than a new location, new friends and new experiences… Well nothing I hear you say and in some respects that is true but not everything goes to plan.
Jetting off, she is so happy that she is finally able to leave all the negativity behind, her ex has moved on and now it is her time to do that too. But when she arrives at her destination and the airline has lost her luggage, things were not off to the most auspicious of starts.
But the fun and games really took off when she got her case back, or what they thought was her case because it contained a tad more than anticipated.
This is a super read for a lazy afternoon on the beach, it is evocative and flighty.
There is an element of mystery around but once the main protagonists are introduced it was fairly self-explanatory as to which way the story was heading but it didn’t detract from the fact that the story was well written.
I think there is enough in the story that might have warranted a second story – the ending was a bit sharp in my opinion and I have a hankering to know what happened after the vacation was over.
I opted to review this book because I was intrigued by the mystery. I enjoy vacation stories that take me to places I’ve not experienced, and the story sounded interesting. Sterling is a divorcee that decides to take herself on a cleansing vacation. Her kids are grown and on their own vacation, her divorce is final, and her ex has moved on. She deserves some fun. So she splurges and books an island getaway. The airline loses her luggage, and when it’s returned, they’ve swapped her suitcase with one containing a golden statute. Strange things continue to happen as she makes some friends and tries to enjoy herself.
Sterling was a likable character. I enjoyed her story. It’s not the most original concept, but the story was still easy to read. Once the bad guy is introduced, it’s kind of easy to figure out what is going on. This book would be great to take with you to the beach for a quick read. The supporting characters were also likable. It would have been nice to see more interaction with the other characters. It’s not a very long story, so there was room for story and character development, but it was a pretty good story as it stands. The end was a bit abrupt, but it’s not a cliff hanger. It just ended with no sense of what might happen with the characters once they get home. I’d probably pick up another story by this author in the future.

As That's Not My Suitcase begins, the novel is all Chick Lit. Sterling's divorce has just become final. Sterling's best friend convinces her to take some time for herself, because Sterling deserves it and needs it. So off she goes, for a week at a resort in Bimini. Unfortunately, Sterling's two suitcases go to Washington Dulles Airport.
Sterling has no make-up and no toiletries. She had to buy shorts and a T-shirt — over-priced, tacky, and ill-fitting — at the resort gift shop. She can't just hide out in her room, though, because she's starving. Sterling wears her new clothes to the resort restaurant, and meets a man, one who's available, no less. Talk about bad timing; he's tall, dark, and handsome, and she's "looking like a train wreck." But wonder of wonders, he wants to see her again!
Sterling's suitcases finally make it to Bimini. As you may have guessed from the title, when Sterling opens one of the suitcases, she realizes That's Not My Suitcase.
At this point, That's Not My Suitcase goes into Cozy Mystery Mode. Sterling thinks she's being followed when she goes into town. Her room is ransacked. There are several possible suspects to choose from, and red herrings to eliminate. There is danger and suspense, with a thrilling climax.
There are new friendships for Sterling, and a possibility of romance — back to Chick Lit. I wasn't ready for the book to end. I wanted to read more about Sterling and ???? !
I recommend That's Not My Suitcase by Laina Turner to all Cozy Mystery fans, as well as fans of Chick Lit. It would make a fantastic Beach Read! If you're new to Cozies, this would be a great introduction to the genre.

As I got into the story, I kept alternating between two suspects, and didn't really trust the motives of either one. In the end, one of them DID turn out to be a bad guy.
This is a quick easy read. There are twists and turns in the plot to keep you reading. I hope this will be the first in a series.
