Flight Risk by Cara C. Putman: Review & Giveaway with Celebrate Lit

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?

I found this book hard to put down and it has a hero and heroine that all of us would like to know. I admit that Jett Glover is a little obnoxious at the beginning but being a promising journalist is probably the reason and it doesn't take long to determine that he is a good, moral man. Savannah Daniels is an outstanding lawyer devoted to helping her niece and she made me want to be her friend. It is when they become involved in the same case that a romantic involvement seems possible if they both can survive the intrigue and danger.

"She needed to walk away, yet she wanted to walk closer. Was she playing with fire? Probably, but she wanted to take the risk. For the first time in years, she felt the tug to see what the man was really made of."

Yes, there is romance but Flight Risk is basically a thrilling, fast-paced suspense story that left me wondering just what Savannah and Jett would discover as they join forces to uncover the truth about Savannah's ex-husband. I must admit that it certainly wasn't what I thought when I began this story!

If you enjoy romantic suspense, you will definitely want to read Flight Risk. Cara Putman left me longing for another story that will perhaps offer more of Savannah and Jett's story.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. There was no obligation to write a favorable review and I am voluntarily sharing my own thoughts.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
