Synopsis: When former forensic photographer Miranda Rhoads moves to the seaside town of Lost Beach, she's decided to make her living as a wildlife photographer and put crime scenes behind her. But her plans are quickly upended when one morning, she comes across a couple sleeping in a canoe, entwined in an embrace. Looking closer, she realizes the man and woman aren't asleep – they've been murdered.
Detective Joel Breda sets out to find answers – not only about the unidentified victims in the marshy death scene, but also about the aloof and beautiful photographer who seems to know more about his investigation than he does.
As they begin to unravel the motivation of a merciless serial killer, Miranda and Joel must race against the clock to make an arrest before the killer can find them first. (Synopsis from Goodreads)
My Thoughts: It did not take much for me to want to read this book. The synopsis really did a great job of grabbing me and the story inside kept me reeled in. I really enjoy these kind of stories.
I loved the setting of this story. There's the calm and beauty of a seaside town mixed with the ugliness of murder. It seems like two things that shouldn't belong together, but they end up side by side.
I really enjoyed our two characters of Miranda and Joel. I liked how they worked together and I'm always a sucker when it comes to romance.
I also really enjoyed some of the secondary characters and would love for some of them to get stories of their own.
I think this can definitely be read as a standalone. You won't get lost from not having read the first one.
Laura Griffin is one of those reliable authors that you know will give you a satisfying story. It's not a risk to get one of Laura's books. I'm glad I got to read Flight. It was a story that kept me hooked.
Laura Griffin is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than twenty-five books and novellas. She is a two-time RITA® Award winner as well as the recipient of the Daphne du Maurier Award.
