About the Book
Book: Flight Risk
Author: Cara Putman
Genre: Romantic Legal Suspense
Release Date: April 7, 2020
Bestselling author Cara Putman returns with a romantic legal thriller that will challenge the assumptions of truth tellers everywhere.
Savannah Daniels has worked hard to build her law practice, to surround herself with good friends, and to be the loyal aunt her troubled niece can always count on. But since her ex-husband’s betrayal, she has trouble trusting anyone.
Jett Glover’s father committed suicide over a false newspaper report that ruined his reputation. Now a fierce champion of truth, Jett is writing the story of his journalism career—an international sex-trafficking exposé that will bring down a celebrity baseball player and the men closest to him, including Savannah’s ex-husband.
When Jett’s story breaks, tragedy ensues. Then a commercial airline crashes, and one of Savannah’s clients is implicated in the crash. Men connected to the scandal, including her ex, begin to die amid mysterious circumstances, and Savannah’s niece becomes an unwitting target.
Against their better instincts, Jett and Savannah join ranks to sort the facts from fiction. But can Savannah trust the reporter who threw her life into chaos? And can Jett face the possibility that he’s made the biggest mistake of his life?

Hubs and I have been diligently reading this series out loud to each other since the first book. While initially we were both skeptical about the legal thriller aspect, Cara quickly made us jump all over the wagon. Now, we count the days for the next release.
Hubs thoughts: (He is clearly more poetic than I am.) “Flight Risk takes off in Putman’s final story of the Hidden Justice Series, presenting a unique perspective of truth. It’s a ride of turbulence, so keep those seat belts on and the pages turning, as you land in the tension of faith, love, redemption, and revenge.”
My Thoughts: Now that we’ve read many of Cara’s books, we knot the seemingly unrelated story lines will somehow weave together, but taking the journey of just how it happens is page turning. It was fun discussing just what way the story might turn and how pieces were connected with hubs. I think this would be a great book club book. People could come up with some pretty fun scenarios.
I loved how Savannah is founded in faith, but not so much that it comes off as preachy or unrealistic. She’s open about her anger and struggles and talks to God like a friend. She strove for a balance of patience and grace while also looking for areas she needed to intervene with her sister and niece. Her perspective on a tough situation and how she dealt with it is admirable.
I like that we’re seeing her as an older than typical character. She brings a maturity balanced with being too stuck in her ways that age and wisdom would bring. It’s a nice perspective not as common in Christian Fiction.
As with all of our read out loud books, there is enough romance to keep me happy and enough seat of your pants for hubs. Cara strikes a great balance even if I always long for more kisses. I’ve been waiting and waiting for Savannah to find her love.
I received a complimentary copy of this book and was not required to write a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Hubs didn’t have to read it at all, so his thoughts are totes his (though I may translate grunts into English 😉
