Lia thinks she’s going to get her pilot’s license, sell her father’s Arizona airpark house, go back to helping beef producers sell meat, and probably find a guy just like the cheating husband who bankrupted her.
Seth thinks he’s come to Arizona to build a spiritual center, escape the community and wife that betrayed him, and create a new beginning much like the contemplative, vegetarian life he left.
While Lia tries to hide and Seth tries to fit in, their attraction, with a little help from their wacky senior citizen neighbors, pulls them together. All they have to do is conquer the fear of flying and their fear of love.
Ms Polo story opens with a fast 'clip'. Well, actually, a 'near miss' between two light aircraft coming in to land. Then she puts two complete oposites together and stirs the plot with a healthy dollop of conflict, making this a fun book to read.
Her amazing gift of creating vivid images with only a few words such as "When the cake was crumbs ..." is awesome. But a few careless typos occasionally bring the smooth read to an abrupt stop, a shame because the plot and characters were very well written.
A mix of youth and seniority create a powerful combination when teamed up against commercial and life-threatening events. Can Lia and Seth save the way of life her father and his friends loved? And will Lia allow herself to risk her heart again?
Amber Polo's Flying Free is a powerful, and sensually written, very heart-warming story that I'm certain will keep you turning the pages to find out the ending and just how the characters arrive there. I know it did for me.
