Lt. Alison Malone is a Navy helicopter pilot that has just been assigned to what she considers a career-ending assignment. She will be flying helicopters at the Navy's base in the desert at Fallon, Nevada. This is not what she signed up for. She wanted to be flying sleek H-60 helicopters, not aged Hueys at this end of the world location.
But one of the things they do the most of at this base is fly the Navy's Search and Rescue teams and coordinate with Mono County Search and Rescue and Alison soon finds out how exhilarating Search and Rescue work can be in the mountains near Fallon, including the mighty Sierra Nevada mountains. And one gifted climber is making her question her engagement to an investment banker in San Diego.
I thoroughly enjoyed author Wilson's first book HOVER - so much so that I bought this book as soon as I finished it. And I liked this book even more. The author graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy, flew Navy helicopters, and was actually stationed at Fallon Naval Station, flying mountain search and rescues while she was there. And she brings all that experience to the table writing her books about female Navy helicopter pilots.
I loved the characters in this book. And the rescues were hair-raising especially the last one in the book. I am familiar with the entire area this book takes place in and the author describes it so well.
Great multi-faceted characters, exciting storylines, steamy romance - this book definitely held my interest all the way through.
