Flight Risk By Cara Putnam

I received this book from Celebrate Lit Blogger Program and the author for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own.


Book Description: 

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 Thoughts: 

Flight Risk is the latest book by Cara Putnam and it is a fantastic book. I have had the pleasure of reading books by Cara Putnam so when this opportunity came to read it, I was excited.  Flight Risk is a Christian Mystery, Suspense, and Legal Thriller. I absolutely love Legal Thrillers and this one is one of the best I have read.  Cara Putnam writes with authority about the law, journalism especially being a reporter, and scandal.  I found this book a fast moving, heart pounding thriller that I could not put down. Once I started it, I found myself unable to tear myself away. The characters in this book are very real and relatable. I found myself drawn to Savannah Daniels. I found her strength and commitment to everything she does admirable. I truly enjoyed this book and cannot wait to see what Cara Putnam comes up with next. I highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Mystery, Suspense, and/or Legal Thriller, you will not be disappointed. I give this book 5 STARS.

Turning Tide: Legacy of Sunset Cove Book 4 By Melody Carlson

I received this book from Celebrate Lit Blogger Program and the author for no charge in exchange for my honest review of this book. The opinions expressed here are my own.


Book Description 
 As the Great War rages on, Sunset Cove continues to feel its impact. Running the small town newspaper, Anna McDowell can't escape the grim reports from the other side of the world, but home-front challenges abound as well. Dr. Daniel is serving the wounded on the front lines. And Katy, expecting her first child, with her husband in the trenches, tries to support the war effort with her Red Cross club. Even as the war winds down the costs are high--and Sunset Cove is not spared.



 My Thoughts:  

 Turning Tide is the fourth and final book in Melody Carlson's series, Legacy of Sunset Cove, and it is fantastic. I am a big fan of Melody Carlson and Christian Historical Fiction so I was excited to have this opportunity. Melody Carlson is very inclusive in her writing and so this book can be read as a stand alone, but I recommend reading all of the books in this series. Melody Carlson weaves a beautifully written story about our world especially Sunset Cove, Oregon, The Great War, writing and printing newspaper, and how the truth can effect those around you. Besides war, this time in our world they were dealing with Spanish Flu, which really hit home given our pandemic of Covid 19.    
 I love reading Historical Fiction and this story really taught me more about our world during The Great War.  In this book Melody Carlson seems to wrap up loose ends with all the characters in this series. I found all of the characters in this book to be very real dealing with real life issues, my favorite character is Anna McDowell. Anna demonstrates such strength and faith in God I find so admirable and an example for me. I truly enjoyed this book and this author. I highly recommend this book, series, and author to anyone who enjoys Christian Historical Fiction, you will not be disappointed. I can't wait to read more from Melody Carlson. I give this book 5 STARS. 

I would also like to apologize to Melody Carlson and Celebrate Lit for not getting this review done on time.

More from Melody

Writing about the WW1 era has definitely been a good history lesson for me. Prohibition laws in Oregon (and rum-runners breaking them) combined with a massive war that changed the world and a global epidemic is worth paying attention to. Especially since history sometimes repeats itself. The early 20th century had a lot going on—much that seems nearly forgotten. I’m glad to see the movie 1917 is doing well—and we plan to see it this week. Although I’m not a fan of gruesome war movies, this era continues to intrigue me. Even as I wrapped up my Sunset Cove series with Turning Tide I was left wondering . . . what’s next? But isn’t that the beauty of story?
