The Last Flight
Summary: 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 ten, 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.
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.
Traveling With T’s Thoughts:
I remember seeing this book on Instagram or Twitter before it was published and it sounded SO good and I was so excited to read it… and then I don’t know what happened. I guess 2020. Anyway- I finally read it and if they don’t make this book into a movie one day- I’m going to be pissed.
What I liked:
Eva and Claire. Both women were desperate to get away from their lives- and I loved how the story was laid out- especially Eva’s story. There was also some teensy little twists that made for some a-ha moments that I enjoyed!
Bottom line: This book was fast paced and VERY good. If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend you read it ASAP.
