    News travels fast. There was a plane crash in the Colorado Rockies. Maggie Carpenter thought about pulling the phone cord from the wall. Avoid phone calls from busy-bodies and newspaper reporters. .....but she needed answers. She also knew Ali would need her clear-eyed. Maggie ...

    Allison by her own choice had no contact with her mother for two years, and then her mother found out that Allison had been killed in a plane crash. Maggie had not talked to her daughter since her husband had passed away, knew nothing about her life, and was at a loss to answer...

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, although I ended up listening to the audiobook after it was released. Not a lot to say about this one: predictable plot and bland, unlikable, and unstable characters. Not one character was who they seemed; everyone had...

    Too predictable and nothing really exciting happened. I did like the mom and daughter characters but the story was just ok. ...

    DNF 22% While I found the premise super interesting - I love survival type thriller- the structure of alternating perspectives and random flashbacks that took away from the current pace and tension didn't work for me. ...

    This is the kind of pulpy, plot-based read that you can power through in a single sitting, preferably on the beach or during a plane ride (if the plane crash aspect doesn't make you too nervous). The short chapters keep the pacing up and make it easy to zip through. However, seasone...

    I don't know about you, but sometimes when I'm reading a book, something about the title triggers a song (or even two) in my brain, something that keeps running through my head the entire time. Needless to say, I was glad I devoured Jessica Barry's Freefall in one day, because I don'...

    It's quite possible that I sometimes rate debut novels a bit higher than I would other books. Maybe it's because I always feel that the first book may be a little bumpy and therefore it's a learning process. So when I come across a debut that just bites at me like the bugs did to Allis...

    I found ?Freefall? to be a powerful thriller that kept me up reading late into the night. What I also enjoyed is that it is a female driven read, with both protagonists determined and strong. The story begins with Allison pulling herself out of a plane wreck in the Colorado Rock...

    4.5/5 This is my first review of the new year and what a read it was, this one begs to be read in one breathless sitting, a total binge read. From the brief, incredibly fast paced chapters to the switch between points of view it?s a truly entertaining read with a fresh premise, wh...

    This is well plotted, if unsurprising, and the pace is fast. It?s told from the alternating voices of the daughter and mother which work but there are mistakes that the editor should have caught. Firstly, it is a character driven novel and the characterization should have been accura...
