    Her Last Flight by Beatriz Williams is an amazing historical fiction gem that alternates between two female characters in two different timelines 1947ish with Janey Everett and late 1920s 1937 with Irene Foster Lindquist.The author gives the reader insight into both strong, fierce, and fiery women in each alternating chapter and weaves an intricate and intriguing story where the reader learns all about both Irene and Janey through their upbringing, background, passions, failures, flaws, triumphs, and harrowing journeys to land them both where they are at the culmination of their paths to the final, and stunning conclusion Though these women seem to be very different at first, as one reads the tale impressively woven by Ms Williams, we learn that they are similar and have far in common by the way of the charismatic, charming, imperfect yet somehow perfect, and undeniably fascinating Sam Mallory pilot and daredevil extraordinaire The plot which the reader can read from the synopsis itself is unique and fascinating I loved learning about planes, aerodynamics, some of the history of aviation and its progress into mainstream media during the 30s 40s I also truly enjoyed reading the subject matter regarding the female role, introduction, and brake throughs into this male dominated field I have a soft spot for seeing strong women that are determined to overcome the mountains and barriers to be able to access and succeed in fields that were originally off limits to women This book has it all romance, history, family, loyalty, love, gut wrenching losses, and perseverance to overcome any obstacles Despite their faults, I found I was drawn to Janey and Irene and actually loved them both because of it all I rooted for them, I shed tears, and I smiled at the amazing twist and positivity perfect ending I was riveted to this book from page 1 all the way to the perfect end Nothing else could have possibly fit as well as this was truly a satisfying ending This book most definitely receives 5 5 stars I have been a huge fan of Ms Williams from the beginning, and this latest novel did not disappoint You will truly enjoy it Thank you EW and William Morrow Harper Collins for this ARC and in return I am submitting my unbiased and voluntary review and opinion I am posting this review to my GR and Bookbub accounts immediately and will post it to my and BN accounts upon publication Thank you again

    I am a huge Beatriz Williams fan, so of course, I enjoyed this novel This is the story of Janey Everett, a photojournalist who is obsessed with the disappearance of aviator Sam Mallory and his aviatrix partner Irene Foster It calls to mind the endless search for Amelia Earhart, but that is where the resemblance ends It is the complex story of how seemingly disconnected lives are ultimately joined Janey s search takes her around the world and brings her to Hawaii It is here that she uncovers the mysteries of the missing couple and those of her own life Williams heroines are always delightful, tough talking and smart Janey fits this mold The reader is given 2 stories, that of SAM and IRENE and that of Janey unfurling the truth of what really happened There are plenty of twists and a wonderful sense of closure as all the loose ends are knit together Thank you Netgalley for allowing me to read and review this novel by one of my favorite authors.
