My own copy

The blurb:

First class is about to get dangerous . . . Pure Air's new LuxeLiner is flying from London to LA - its inaugural journey - with a first-class cabin packed with A List celebrities. As the feuding crew compete to impress their famous passengers, the handsome pilot tries to win the attention of a pretty young stewardess. But one VIP singer is battling something seriously sinister: watching her every step is a very determined stalker, someone who will go to any lengths to get the star to satisfy their desires. At thirty thousand feet there is nowhere to run, and nowhere to hide . . .

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review*

Mile High was my first book by Rebecca Chance. I’ve always heard so many great things about her books, but I never had the chance.

The blurb sounded really got me interested in the story. It’s a Pure Air’s new LuxeLiner flying from London to LA. The airline sounded great, I have to say. The plane is packed with A List celebrities and it was interesting to see how they interacted with each other and how the staff treats them. I liked that most of the story was set on the plane, a great idea and concept.

Catalina, one of the celebrities had to deal with a lot throughout the flight. Her stalker is on board and that added a lot of mystery. I changed my mind about who the stalker was several times.
There were also other characters on board and they had their story to tell as well, but it was kind of too much for me. At one point we read about Catalina’s story and then we also read about Jane and Simone or the pilot. I had difficulties relating to the characters and I felt that there was too much of a mixture. I liked Catalina and her story, especially the flashbacks to hers and Gerhardt’s part.
The flashbacks I really enjoyed, because it opened up the characters and it made them more authentic.

Generally, it took me a while to get into the story. I expected a lot more action, drama and tension and I didn’t get it. The story didn’t move on at points and the only parts that kept me were the flashbacks. Towards the end I got more hooked, because the drama increased and the tension was finally there.

I heard a lot of people say that this story is different from Rebecca’s other stories, so I’m definitely planning on reading her other books as well, even if tjis one was my taste.
