A propulsive debut novel with the intensity of Luckiest Girl Alive and Before the Fall, about a young woman determined to survive and a mother determined to find her.
When your life is a lie, the truth can kill you
When her fiancé’s private plane crashes in the Colorado Rockies, Allison Carpenter miraculously survives. But the fight for her life is just beginning. For years, Allison has been living with a terrible secret, a shocking truth that powerful men will kill to keep buried. If they know she’s alive, they will come for her. She must make it home.
In the small community of Owl Creek, Maine, Maggie Carpenter learns that her only child is presumed dead. But authorities have not recovered her body—giving Maggie a shred of hope. She, too, harbors a shameful secret: she hasn’t communicated with her daughter in two years, since a family tragedy drove Allison away. Maggie doesn’t know anything about her daughter’s life now—not even that she was engaged to wealthy pharmaceutical CEO Ben Gardner, or why she was on a private plane.
As Allison struggles across the treacherous mountain wilderness, Maggie embarks on a desperate search for answers. Immersing herself in Allison’s life, she discovers a sleek socialite hiding dark secrets. What was Allison running from—and can Maggie uncover the truth in time to save her?
Told from the perspectives of a mother and daughter separated by distance but united by an unbreakable bond, Freefall is a riveting debut novel about two tenacious women overcoming unimaginable obstacles to protect themselves and those they love.
I did liked this adult mystery/thriller. The story was pretty interesting and set into two point of views. You don’t need to read this review, if your not into adult reads. I read mostly a bit of everything that sounds good. This was mostly an quick read. Like other mysteries books, it slow pace. Can connect to what the characters are going through.
Allison in the book is a survival, she is on the run after a plane crash. You can tell right off the bat someone been watching her. No one knows who she running from at first or why she running in the first place. You just want to root for her to stay alive. What hidden secrets she been keeping from her family for years?
Maggie is the hopeful mother. She the only one, that believes Allison might be alive. As she digs through her daughter past, what will she dig up? I like how accepting Maggie is, when finding secrets of her daughter’s life. She really cares for her family. Will mother and daughter be reunited at the end?
I say this again I liked this read, but not in love with it. If you looking for a new adult read or any new read, you might enjoy it. If you unsure of it, then get it from the library.
