Claire Cook has a perfect life. But behind closed doors, nothing is quite as it seems. That perfect husband has a temper that burns as bright as his promising political career, and he’s not above using his staff to track Claire’s every move. But what he doesn’t know is that Claire has worked for months on a plan to vanish.
A chance meeting in an airport bar brings her together with a woman whose circumstances seem equally dire. Together they make a last-minute decision to switch tickets ― Claire taking Eva’s flight to Oakland, and Eva traveling to Puerto Rico as Claire. But when the flight to Puerto Rico goes down, Claire realizes it’s no longer a head start but a new life. Cut off, out of options, with the news of her death about to explode in the media, Claire will assume Eva’s identity, and along with it, the secrets Eva fought so hard to keep hidden.

My favorite book of the month! The Last Flight was instantly addicting. I read it in a day. The story was a little bit unbelievable- a fortuitous meeting at the airport transformed the direction of two desperate women’s lives. Of course, they were likable loners with no real friends or family, but just go with it. It was great story with a highly climactic ending. One thing all four of our books this month have in common is that they are all a little far fetched, but they are all equally entertaining page turners regardless of this fact.

Enjoyed this one too! Another great month of reading. This one probably won’t stay with you for the long haul, but it is fast-paced and entertaining, and it makes for a great summer read. I recommend it!
