Miranda, a CSI on hiatus, is spending the summer at the small Texas coastal town of Lost Beach photographing birds for a nature calendar. This is just the respite she needs after particularly tough case that didn’t end well. However, while photographing, Miranda stumbles upon a double murder and she becomes embroiled in the investigation when the police discover her skills.
Miranda’s photography captured my interest, I’d love to photograph birds in the marshes of Texas! Well, maybe not in the summer as I hate mosquitos and unfortunately, they love me!
Flight had a perfect balance between the main mystery/thriller and the romance. It was a little heavier on the romance than a lot of police procedurals, but I was on board with that as I really connected with Joel and Miranda’s romance! That being said, the police procedural part was interesting, and it seems like Ms. Griffin always features cutting-edge techniques. I’ve read several of Laura Griffin’s books, but Flight stands out as one of my favorites!
