By J. Chambers HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on July 29, 2011
Format: Kindle Edition
Note: This review was originally published on Red Adept Reviews on March 8, 2011.

Overall: 3 stars

Plot/Storyline: 3 stars

Christina was like a junior Wonder Woman - she skydived, scuba dived, and flew airplanes like an experienced pilot after only a few hours of instruction. If the girls were a little younger, and if the more violent scenes were rewritten or deleted, the story would be appropriate - perhaps even inspirational - for younger teenagers, but the story just wasn't believable enough for me.

The first third of the book, which followed the three girls from age eleven through high school, wasn't that interesting and served little purpose. There were dead ends such as the chapter where Jessica's abusive stepfather Roy beat her mom senseless, broke down Jessica's bedroom door, and tried to rape her. Jessica had telephoned Christina to help her, so Christina rushed over and stopped Roy by threatening him with her shotgun. But there was no follow-up, no calling the police, no mention of the stepfather after that. And there was very little mention of any of the girls' parents, it's almost as if they raised themselves.

About halfway through the story, the action picked up and the story got more interesting when the three girls entered college. Christina started flying lessons, Heather became romantically involved with an older man, and Jessica studied old Spanish archives to locate sunken treasure. The three girls were now living their dreams. During a summer break, they embarked on a trip to the Bahamas on a treasure-hunting expedition that ended in tragedy. And this is where it really got too unbelievable for me. Christina showed flying skills that only a veteran pilot would have, even though she had not even earned her pilot's license.

This story had a good plot but for most of the book it was undeveloped. We never find out what happened to Jessica's step father or the female pilot that was in on the plot to kill the girls.

Most of the story was also unbelievable. To think that an overweight plane could gain enough speed on a sandy beach is just too far fetched.

Perhaps the author should go back and rewrite some of the story.

I liked this story a lot! Right from the beginning, the excitement begins with a glimpse of the ending. But it is not a spoiler. Christina is the daughter of Lt Col Patrick Matthews who is a test pilot for Boeing. He had wanted to be an astronaut, but did not qualify. Chris loses her mother at 12 yrs of age, and through her next 10 years or so, struggles with the deep loss. Her father has also become distant to her, thus she became very independent early in life. She was a tomboy: tough, confident, and one who's motto is, "Never give in, never give up." At a young age she had a solitary goal that she has set for her future. Finished with high school, Chris and her two very close girl friends form a close bond through the early college years. Chris decides to take flying lessons and her flight instructor feels she has a natural talent. The three girls face many challenges, and Chris seems to be the most logical and confident of the girls. She confronts every conflict they are faced with and becomes a hero. This story is simply written, easy to read, and may be more suited for older teenagers, but I absolutely loved it. Perhaps because it sparked my memories of flying years ago in a Beechcraft Bonanza where I experienced many adventures. I think this story may encourage many young people to set such high goals. I strongly recommend this book if you like high action adventure. I will be reading the sequel soon!

I have to admit for $0.99 it sounded like a good book, so I gave it a try. I enjoyed the story and the character development, to me the characters were very believable and like-able. The plot moved quickly and grabbed me and forced me to read into the wee hours. The plot isn't complex, there's no secondary plot to try and confuse you, it's just a good story. This book just keeps you interested, especially if you are a pilot or interested in aviation. This is a good, fun to read novel. I'm looking forward to Steve's follow-up novel to be released soon.

A feel good novel that I enjoyed. It's enjoyable and keeps your interest but it didn't make me cry or want to reach into the pages and slap a character so I can only give it 4 stars. This book does grab your attention right away and I give it kudos for that. I also got it while it was a kindle freebie so that's another reason to just enjoy it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It was a wonderful escape that moved fast enough to keep me entertained without getting into too much detail. The author did a great job introducing the reader to the characters in the story and developed them in a seamless way as the story developed. Very readable writing although I did notice several typos, the editor might consider another review/update of the electronic versions even if it is too late for the book. I'm looking forward to ready more work by this author.

Beautifully written sweeping tale wrapped around an outstanding knowledge of flight and flying. A tightly written page turner with plenty of unexpected yet logical twists. Well worth the time. Expect to see a great deal more from this author and his characters.
