My Thoughts

I’ve seen some reviews refer to Life Flight as a roller-coaster ride. In my opinion, this book is more like a ride on a bullet train from start to finish, with a few short lulls to catch your breath. Literally, I felt like I was at the climax of the story from chapter one, and it stayed that way for the rest of the book. Lynette Eason is an amazing author. She is a new-to-me author, and I was highly impressed by her skills. I can’t wait for the next book in this series.

There are quite a few characters to keep straight which adds to the complexity of the novel. I love multiple points of few, and this book had several, including the villains, who may be one of the creepiest bad guys I’ve ever encountered in a novel. I’m not sure if listening to the audio book made it worse, because the voice talent did an incredible job giving each character, not only a unique voice, but personality and tone to everyone. Darius Raybure will make your skin crawl!

I loved the female pilot, Penny. Her career was unique and interesting. Eason did a great job making every moment feel realistic.   

I highly recommend this book to lovers of romantic suspense. If you’ve never read this genre before, I caution starting with this one. And if you’re squeamish when it comes to murder mysteries, this may not be your cup of tea! (Pun absolutely intended)

    This is my next read and I am looking forward to it. I have learned that I have a hard time follow suspense stories on Audio, it makes it harder to keep all the characters straight. I love Lynette Eason’s books and I am looking forward to this one as well. Excellent review, thanks for sharing.
