I really enjoyed this book. It made me grin and giggle and wiggle around in my seat with excitement. Nikki is a down-to-earth heroine who deserves every break she gets. So is Dixie. So is Carlisle--though he's a hero, not a heroine--well, sort of! :) Carr's comfort with the lives, loves, and speech patterns of real human beings makes for easy reading--I was never "tripped up" by artificial-sounding dialogue or unrealistic plot twists.
Five stars is not enough! I hesitantly picked up this book, unfamiliar with author, and not expecting a good read. HA! I finished the last page hooked on another talented author...and am quickly ordering more of her books!
This was another wonderful book by Robyn Carr. I love her Virgin River series and I was curious to read something else that she had written. I wasn't disappointed. Her books are always full of people you wish you really knew and her information about the airline industry, especially after 9/11 made the book just that much more interesting!
Good story - lot's of good info I didn't know about the airline business. Not much romance - just good novel.
Very funny, yet touching & loving. A very good read!!!!
My first Carr book and boy, did I enjoy this! I got so involved in the characters' lives, I was disappointed when the book ended! I'm going to go right now and see if there are any others of her books posted!
Excellent book about three friends trying to survive everyday life. Interesting insights on airlines especailly after 9/11. Great characters, intriguing plotline.
I was disappointed in this one. I love her Virgin River books but this one is more a love story to the airline industry than of the characters.
At first I thought it started out slow, but I really liked this book. It picked up and I couldn't put it down. I enjoy this author and look forward to reading more by her.
This book took me by surprise. After reading all of Robyn's Virgin River series, which take place in a small town, this one stays in the city. Not just any city, but Las Vegas, where Robyn has lived for years and which is now my home. She gives you a real feel for what it's like to live here. Example: "Fortunately, the October weather was decent--temperature in the seventies, dry, pleasant, not too windy. Whoever had named Chicago the windy city hadn't been to Las Vegas. You could always tell the new residents by their lightweight lawn furniture and picnic umbrellas blowing down the street." (page 233)
This was a really good book. If you like Robyn Carr you will like this .
Great book, great author!
I just love Robyn Carr's stories! This one was no exception. Her characters are always so true to life.They always feel like people you'd want to be friends with. This one delved into the area of aircraft, and I came out knowing so much more about airlines, schedules, pilots and what makes an airline run. Her usual assortment of characters was so enjoyable, from the nasty mother to the father who just adores her to the gay best friend. Highly recommend this book!
