Description

"The Last Flight is thoroughly absorbing - not only because of its tantalizing plot and deft pacing, but also because of its unexpected poignancy and its satisfying, if bittersweet, resolution. The characters get under your skin." (The New York Times Book Review

Two women. Two flights. One last chance to disappear.  

Claire Cook has a perfect life. Married to the scion of a political dynasty, with a Manhattan townhouse and a staff of 10, her surroundings are elegant, her days flawlessly choreographed, and her future auspicious. But behind closed doors, nothing is quite as it seems. That perfect husband has a temper that burns as bright as his promising political career, and he's not above using his staff to track Claire's every move, making sure she's living up to his impossible standards. But what he doesn't know is that Claire has worked for months on a plan to vanish.  

A chance meeting in an airport bar brings her together with a woman whose circumstances seem equally dire. Together they make a last-minute decision to switch tickets - Claire taking Eva's flight to Oakland, and Eva traveling to Puerto Rico as Claire. They believe the swap will give each of them the head start they need to begin again somewhere far away. But when the flight to Puerto Rico goes down, Claire realizes it's no longer a head start but a new life. Cut off, out of options, with the news of her death about to explode in the media, Claire will assume Eva's identity, and along with it, the secrets Eva fought so hard to keep hidden.  

For fans of Lisa Jewell and Liv Constantine, The Last Flight is the story of two women - both alone, both scared - and one agonizing decision that will change the trajectory of both of their lives.

Great story, a sudden end, kept me listening

A well written story with great detail and a well thought out plot. Really made a person aware of the struggles an abused woman goes through, ended rather suddenly but I qpuod still highly recommend.

Great Story

This would make a great movie. I so enjoyed the two characters and how their lives intertwined. I thought about the story long after I finished listening and to me this says a lot about it. I ended up listening for hours. I love audio books because you can listen and still do so much.

Best Book in a very long time!

Loved the book, loved the Narrator. Zipped through this one too fast. Loved the characters and I will be looking for another book by this Author.

could not stop listening

early on the story gets fast paced - I felt my own adrenaline pumping during parts of it. it seemed to wrap up sort of suddenly but it came together well. I'll look for more work by both the author & narrators

Keeps you hanging to the end!

Great story line. Suspenseful! Twists and turns. Keeps you engaged and guessing what is going to happen next! Well performed.

kept me listening but overall had a flat ending

I really wanted to love this story more than I did. unfortunately though, the ending fell flat. I found the overall story to be a little bit slow and I even had to speed everything up in order to get through it.

Intriguing premise

I’ve been anticipating this book for a long time and it didn’t disappoint. It wasn’t quite as good as the author's first book, The Ones We Choose” but I think that was simply because the overall theme of the book wasn’t quite as interesting to me.

The characters were realistic and well developed. The plot progressed well and the suspense was good. I loved the author’s use of language and the way she described everyday things so vividly and poetically.

I thought the ending was a bit too “easy” and would have liked a bit more suspense. But it was satisfying.

This was the first book I’ve listened to narrated by Khristine Hvam. She did a great job, as did Lauren Fortgang, in the alternating narrative.

Different

I was really excited about this book, the description sounded interesting and the press on it was very good. I even paid full price for the audio version, something I never do. It starts pretty good, then it quickly changes, not bad just different.

I usually don't like books with neat endings. This one has one with a twist.

RECOMMENDATION: READ IT

Riveting!

A page turner that hooks you from start to finish. This compelling story has some good twists and turns. Just when you think you know what will happen, there is a pleasant surprise. Enjoyable and a fast read.

Great listen!

I loved this book. The story held my interest and I was very invested in the lives
of both women. I did not like the second narrator's voice...at first I thought I would
have to trade the book in, it was so grating on me. But, I liked the story so much I
kept listening. I did not like the ending. I still do not know what happened to Eva.

Mediocre story

The whole book lacked the element of excitement..
.
The character's were not interesting and it was too farfetched.....

Hard to pay attention

I didn't even finish this book. It wasn't awful but it just couldn't hold my attention. I think it could have been a good story but there were a lot of very slow parts, so I just gave up. I may try to revisit it at some point.

Good enough to purchase

Pretty good story and touches on important subjects. I wouldve liked to know a little more about one of the characters future but that’s the choice of the author. Most of the surprises were easily guessed but didn’t take away from the actual story. All in all a pretty good read and narrator did a great job.

This Audible is one of the best I’ve ever had the pleasure of hearing. So incredibly exciting with characters I cared about from the very beginning. Bravo, Julie Clark.
