Book Review: Life Flight

31 Mar

My book club read Life Flight, the first book in a new series by Lynette Eason. She is a favorite of my group, and this book did not disappoint. We generally don’t have a lot of discussion with a romantic suspense, but this book made us delve into the criminal mind(s) of the characters. One of our members couldn’t read it at night because of the creep factor. 😉 We all enjoyed it!

EMS helicopter pilot Penny Carlton is used to high stress situations, but being forced to land on a mountain in a raging storm with a critical patient–and a serial killer on the loose–tests her skills and her nerve to the limit. She survives with FBI Special Agent Holt Satterfield’s help. But she’s not out of the woods yet.

In the ensuing days, Penny finds herself under attack. And when news reaches Holt that he may not have gotten his man after all, it will take all he and Penny have to catch a killer–before he catches one of them.

Bestselling and award-winning author Lynette Eason is back with another high-octane tale of close calls, narrow escapes, and the fight to bring a nefarious criminal to justice.

Award-winning, best-selling author, Lynette Eason writes for Harlequin’s Love Inspired Suspense line and for Revell, a division of Baker Publishing Group. Her books have hit the Publisher’s Weekly, CBA and ECPA bestseller lists and have won numerous awards such as the prestigious Carol Award, the Selah, the Daphne, the IRCC award and more. Lynette is married, has two children, and lives in Greenville, SC.

My Impressions:

If you want a lot of action in your romantic suspense, then Life Flight by Lynette Eason is a sure bet! The novel is so packed with suspense, that it is a wonder that main characters Holt and Penny had a chance to develop their relationship. LOL! Seriously, this book was unputdownable!

The action begins with a medical helicopter transport making an emergency landing on a mountain outside of Asheville, NC. Add to that a storm and an escaped serial killer, and I could not keep the pages turning fast enough. There are plenty of twists to keep the characters (and readers) on their toes. And there is a definite creep-factor as well. My book club read this novel and we had lots to talk about — mostly about the serial killer. It really piqued our interest of the hows and whys. We generally love a romantic suspense, but few have generated the long discussion we had about Life Flight. One note: one of our members had nightmares, so be careful reading it at night. Alone. In a house with bumps and creaks. 😉

My group and I really enjoyed this book. We are looking forward to more in this fast-paced series.


Audience: adults.
