Book Review + Giveaway!: Flight Risk

About The Book

Book:  Flight Risk

Author: Cara Putman

Genre:  Romantic Legal Suspense

Release Date: April 7, 2020

Bestselling author Cara Putman returns with a romantic legal thriller that will challenge the assumptions of truth tellers everywhere.

Savannah Daniels has worked hard to build her law practice, to surround herself with good friends, and to be the loyal aunt her troubled niece can always count on. But since her ex-husband’s betrayal, she has trouble trusting anyone.

Jett Glover’s father committed suicide over a false newspaper report that ruined his reputation. Now a fierce champion of truth, Jett is writing the story of his journalism career — an international sex-trafficking exposé that will bring down a celebrity baseball player and the men closest to him, including Savannah’s ex-husband.

When Jett’s story breaks, tragedy ensues. Then a commercial airline crashes, and one of Savannah’s clients is implicated in the crash. Men connected to the scandal, including her ex, begin to die amid mysterious circumstances, and Savannah’s niece becomes an unwitting target.

Against their better instincts, Jett and Savannah join ranks to sort the facts from fiction. But can Savannah trust the reporter who threw her life into chaos? And can Jett face the possibility that he’s made the biggest mistake of his life?

My Impressions:

Cara Putman has sealed it for me. After reading Flight Risk, she is a must-read author. I have enjoyed other books by this talented romantic suspense writer, but her latest offering was unputdownable! If you are looking for a book that will keep you furiously turning pages to find out how it’s all going to end, then you need to get your hands on this one right now!

Flight Risk has the same setting as Putman’s Hidden Justice series. In fact, you will find familiar characters from those three books as you revisit the Arlington/Alexandria, VA area. I liked that Putman included those characters I had come to know and love. Flight Risk features attorney Savannah Daniels and journalist Jett Glover. Their instant attraction let this reader know that romance would follow. But theirs is not an easy relationship, and I loved the balance that the author created. In the midst of the suspense that includes plane crashes, hit-and-run accidents, and murder, the two main characters are cautious in their interactions. This seemed much more natural than if the two spent pages and pages gazing into each other’s eyes while the world crashed around them. 😉 As Savannah and Jett work through seemingly unrelated events, the bad guy is slowly revealed to the reader. I loved this too. And while I knew by the last quarter of the book who he was, there were still plenty of twists that kept me guessing at what was to come.  Truth is a hard commodity to find, and the characters and the reader are left with a lot to ponder.

I really, really liked Flight Risk. It is one of the best romantic suspense novels I have read this year. And although it is a standalone, if you haven’t yet read Putman’s Hidden Justice series, it will make you seek them out. Binge-reading anyone?

Highly Recommended.

Audience: Adults.

    Well, yesterday this book got a “must buy” recommendation from Jaime Jo Wright, so this MUST go on my TBR wish list. Plus, I think this is her May pick for her book club.
