#BookReview- Flight by Laura Griffin #Thriller #Reading @Laura_Griff

I only managed to read one book this week, but it was by one of my favorite suspense writers, Laura Griffin.

One tenacious local detective can only get the help he needs from a former forensic photographer with a serial killer on the loose in the new romantic thriller from New York Times bestselling author Laura Griffin.

When former forensic photographer Miranda Rhoads moves to the seaside town of Lost Beach, she’s decided to make her living as a wildlife photographer and put crime scenes behind her. But her plans are quickly upended when one morning, she comes across a couple sleeping in a canoe, entwined in an embrace. Looking closer, she realizes the man and woman aren’t asleep—they’ve been murdered.

Detective Joel Breda sets out to find answers–not only about the unidentified victims in the marshy death scene, but also about the aloof and beautiful photographer who seems to know more about his investigation than he does.

As they begin to unravel the motivation of a merciless serial killer, Miranda and Joel must race against the clock to make an arrest before the killer can find them first.


Laura Griffin is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of more than twenty-five books and novellas. She is a two-time RITA Award winner, and her book Desperate Girls was named one of the Best Books of 2018 by Publishers Weekly. Booklist magazine calls Laura’s popular Tracers series “the perfect mix of suspense and romance.”

My Review

Desperate to de-stress after a particularly heartbreaking case, forensic photographer Miranda Rhoads moves to Lost Beach to take up wildlife photography- until she comes upon a double homicide and is drawn into the investigation.

Born and raised on Lost Beach, Detective Joel Breda cares deeply about the safety of his island. When two social media influencers are murdered in a disturbing scene straight out of a horror story, he knows it’s only a matter of time before the press turns the island into a zoo. He needs all the help he can get, and impressed with Miranda’s quick thinking to secure the scene and photograph the evidence before the weather could destroy it, he persuades her to stay on the investigation.

Attracted to the handsome detective, Miranda tries to maintain a professional association with Joel, but he doesn’t make it easy to resist him.

Then, someone targets Miranda and the stakes rise.

Will Miranda and Joel uncover a killer’s motive before anyone else gets hurt?

Laura Griffin is a master at police procedural mysteries. Her books always keep me on the edge of my seat.

Flight is a puzzle right to the end. The killer was a complete surprise- I love when that happens!
