"Fans of Lisa Jewell and Liv Constantine will love The Last Flight, a novel focusing on two women who meet in an airport, both alone, both scared, and both urgently needing an escape from their lives. Claire Cook has a husband whose temper burns as bright as his promising political career, and she has worked for months on a plan to get out. A chance meeting in an airport bar brings her together with a stranger equally as desperate. Together they hatch a plan to switch tickets - Claire taking Eva's flight to Oakland, and Eva traveling to Puerto Rico as Claire. But then one plane crashes, and it's clear that one of them wasn't telling the truth"--… (més)

Interesting concept - trade places with someone else who is just as desperate to leave their life behind as you are. I enjoyed it.
Eva, who made a mistake years earlier, and later got caught up again, is running scared. Claire, married to a prominent politician who abused her, also wants out of her life. So, in the airport, they agree to swap planes tickets and go to the other’s destination.
When Claire arrives in Oakland, CA, she sees the news that the plane to Puerto Rico has crashed-the plane that Eva was supposed to take in Claire’s place.
The story then flashes back to the time before the crash and these women’s lives. The ending is a bit of a surprise.
I like how the story brought attention to the decisions we make early in life don’t have to define the rest of your life. I also liked how it brought some attention to the plight of many who are abused or diminished at the hands of powerful men. I think it could have gone a bit deeper into this storyline.
Thanks to Goodreads for the copy! #Goodreadsgiveaway ( )

You would do well to pay close attention to this nonlinear plot! The edge of your seat suspense and pulse pounding twists will tempt you to speed through the book. Don't. The details are easy to miss if you're not paying attention to this intricately woven story.
Well crafted and character driven, this riveting novel will keep you seated in the upright position until the last page. ( )

This was well-plotted with lots of twists and turns. I was a bit confused at the beginning by the idea that it would be easy to change tickets because they were already through security. It's at the gate that they really check IDs in my experience; security just needs to see you have a boarding pass. Anyway, if you let that go and accept the big coincidence linking Eva and Clare at the end, it holds up fine.

I thought the author did a good job of making Eva sympathetic to the reader, despite her secrets. It dragged a little in the middle, but overall very enjoyable. ( )

Loved it! Page turner from start to finish! ( )

I really enjoyed this. The story was not entirely plausible but thoroughly compelling. ( )

Dedicated to all the women who have come forward with their stories. Whether it be in front of a congressional panel on live television or alone in a windowless human resources office--- we hear you. We believe you.

The loss had faded, as all losses did, replaced by something harder. Stronger. She could see now what she couldn't see then. All choices had consequences. It was what you did with those consequences that mattered.
Everything you ever wanted is on the other side of fear.
This is what it's like to die, having left so much unfinished. It still tethers you---like an in breakable thread, always leading your thoughts back to if only. But if only is a useless question, a spotlight shining on an empty stage, illuminating what never was, and never will be.
"You know, life is long. Lots of things can go wrong and still end up all right."
This was the funny thing about regret. It lived inside of you, shrinking down until you could almost believe it had vanished, only to have it spring up, fully formed, call forwarded by people who meant you no harm.
