From the back cover:
EMS helicopter pilot Penny Carlton is used to high stress situations, but being forced to land on a mountain in a raging storm with a critical patient--and a serial killer on the loose--tests her skills and her nerve to the limit. She survives with FBI Special Agent Holt Satterfield's help. But she's not out of the woods yet.
In the ensuing days, Penny finds herself under attack. And when news reaches Holt that he may not have gotten his man after all, it will take all he and Penny have to catch a killer--before he catches one of them.
Talk about an attention-grabbing opening line: Today was not going to be the day they died – not if she had anything to say about it. If that didn’t grab you, you must be some kind of stoic. It got my attention and raised my heart rate, and I was hooked.
Penny makes a fantastic heroine with her courage, determination, humor and carefully hidden secrets. Holt is her perfect foil and also has a secret he’s afraid to share. Brave enough to confront a serial killer, his fear of rejection makes him relatable. Holt and Penny’s relationship plays a major role in this story, and their often witty banter in the midst of high tension makes Life Flight an extra special read.
Faith is not preached but is shown in their interactions, and the strong moral code of both teams makes me want to read more of what I assume will be a series.
Tension continues to ramp up through this story, culminating in a heart-pounding climax and satisfying ending. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Life Flight and award it five stars. I was given a copy of the book by the publisher.
