Beauty in Flight
Her beauty once opened doors, but the felony conviction now slams them shut.
Harper Cloud used to love the gilded glamour of Las Vegas, but on the far side of prison, she sees the cracks in the veneer. These days, she keeps her head down and focuses on the elderly patients in her care. Even her new wealthy east-coast boyfriend, Derrick, can't entice her away. She's trust...more
Beauty in Flight was unique in that the suspense was in the margins. There was more of a feeling of tension and something ominous to come than actual action.
Main character Harper is a fabulous main character. She is street savvy due to her rough background but not hardened by it. I love her natural kindness for the elderly and on the flip side the zero amount of tolerance she has for anything shady.
The ending definitely leaves readers hanging. Thank goodness book two come ...more
The action at the end brought about an adrenaline rush, so that I took a while being able to settle and fall asleep.

Harper Cloud's post-prison life is full of new perspective. It was painful to learn that beauty on the outside often attracts the wrong kind of friends, in particular, the wrong kind of men. Her hopes and dreams have become simple again, except for Derrick Burns' insistence that their long distance relationship become a short distance one, with no strings attached. When has that every worked for Harper?
Glad to leave Las Vegas behind and the eerie ...more

So I read this book in one day. ONE DAY. Says the slowest reader on the planet.
This is the first Robin Patchen book that I have read and it was GOOD. The pacing was amazing and I honestly didn't really get bored reading it at all. Ms. Patchen knows how to keep a reader interested.
I think my one problem with it was the ending. First off, the ending was a MAJOR cliffhanger and I don't have the second book, so there's that. But I also felt that after all the building up to the end and that on ...more

I started this story yesterday and finished it today. I loved the character, Harper Cloud, and her amazing ability to relate to seniors and bring out the best in them. She provided the type of nursing care that any of us would want for our family members when they become unable to care for themselves. I especially liked her client, Red, and how well they related to each other; however, this story is not about something as calm and qu ...more
