New Yorker, Grier Thompson, must return to Indigo, Alaska to deal with the estate of her late, unknown father. Grier never knew her father let alone that she has a half-sister. Her last visit to Indigo was less than amicable, but she needs to wrap things up there in order to move on with her life. Grier’s past year has been nothing but surprises; the worst – finding her fiancé with another woman, and the best – meeting the scrumptious Michael “Mick” Patrick O’Shaughnessy in Indigo, Alaska. Mick found himself attracted to the visitor from New York who seemed to fit in nicely in Indigo. However, he’s not so sure that she will stick around once she closes the estate of her estranged father and deals with her half-sister, Kate. Can he convince her that her future lies with him, or is she just another fly-by for this pilot?
Come Fly With Me was a fast paced, light romantic read that never truly delved into the depths that it promised. I hadn’t realized that I would need to read the first story of this series in order to get further background information, but I felt that I would have benefited if I had.
There was a lot going on in Come Fly With Me that seemed to distract from the main couple, Mick and Grier, and I wish that the others had just been given their own stories. Instead, they were tossed into Come Fly With Me, and I felt sorry because some seemed to be gipped in this story as well as in their lives in Come Fly With Me. There were deeper feelings and ramifications that could have been explored more between the pages of Come Fly With Me, but they really weren’t until the character wanted to claim some baggage from that situation when, previously, they seemed to be all good with the whole thing.
In Come Fly With Me, I felt that Mick was a bit inconsistent overall. He started out so secure and then he pulled a ‘chic’ move—I could so see a chic doing/saying that—and he lost a lot of points from me in that instance. I really found it annoying that Mick and Grier couldn’t open up with each other instead of other people as well. I also didn’t like that Come Fly With Me had to have a LOT of good guys in the story. I get shades of grey, I truly understand that, but I need to see why they changed and find them acceptable. Instead, Come Fly With Me, tells me that things were not consistent with that person, and I should cut them some slack….I was never shown to cut them slack, just told to!
