About the Book:

Among the 151 people who died in the crash of Flight 94 was Mick Hammon, the plane's captain and Erin Russell's close friend. A pilot herself, Erin now struggles with the shattering losses both of her friend and of her own confidence in the cockpit. With pilot error speculated as the cause of the accident, Erin fights to save Mick's reputation for the sake of the family he left behind. But that fight pits her against Addison Lowe, the crash investigator. Like Erin, he is determined to get at the truth of the disaster. But his conclusions could ruin Mick's good name and the future of Mick's family. Clashing over the details of the disaster, Erin and Addison discover an unexpected, mutual attraction for each other. But it could go down in flames as the investigation spins out of control.


My Rating & Thoughts:    

Addison Lowe works with the NTSB and is investigating a plane crash that claimed the life of everyone on board. Erin Russell is a pilot who was supposed to be on that flight, but due to circumstances that happened she was not on the flight and is now fighting feelings of grief and guilt. Was it pilot error that caused the crash or was it a system malfunction? Addison has to interview Erin for background on the pilot that died and the two immediately clash as Erin has her guard up. I felt for both characters and the feelings the were dealing with. This story felt much more like a mystery than the previous books and I really liked that Addison kept digging until he was positive about the cause of the crash instead of caving to the pressure to close the case quickly. If he had caved the true cause would not have been found and other would pay the price. The one thing I did not like was the personal relationship build between Addison and Erin, the timing felt wrong and should have been a conflict of interest. I also didn’t like Erin’s attitude to Addison’s questions.
