Mile High (Windy City Series Book 1)
About this deal
I think Rebecca Chance wanted to add more drama and more interest by revealing that there is a murderer onboard but didn't elaborate anything. Whilst the description of the Luxe pods with their cashmere slippers and leather beds are wonderful, the reader is aware that there is nowhere for the characters to hide. But speaking of the stalker, I really didn't find the mystery part so gripping our intense and could see pretty early on who this stalker is.
It might not have been exactly this what I was expecting from this much acclaimed author, but it was enough to make me sure that I really want to read other Rebecca Chance's books.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. Added to that the other "incidents" that occurred on the plane along the way gave me enough to keep me guessing, intrigued and interested but not too many to have made it over the top.
Perhaps it's because I read so many crime novels but one of the weaker elements was the stalker storyline.I'm in a wedding coming up, on where every one of my childhood friends, including my ex-boyfriend, will be in attendance, and there's no better date than my ex's celebrity hero.
About The Book Wedding Day Pretty, flighty Daisy Devreaux can either go to jail or marry the mystery man her father has chosen for her. In Mile High, there is the first mention of the novelist Robert Keifetz, as "the Keifetz Prize," on page 263, first mention of Keifetz. Rebecca Chance has been on my radar for a long time already, but "Mile High" is the first book by her that I've read.
It fused the need to massacre twelve hundred thousand American Indians and ten million American buffalo, the lynching bees, the draft riots, bread riots, gold riots and race riots, the constant wars, the largest rats in the biggest slums, boxing and football, the loudest music, the most strident and exploitative press with the entire wonderful promise of tomorrow and tomorrow, always dragging the great nation downward into greater violence and more unnecessary deaths, into newer and more positive celebration of nonlife, all so that the savage, simple-minded people might be educated into greater frenzies of understanding that power and money are the only desirable objects for this life. And where Rebecca excels as ever was by weaving in references to celebrities and brands yet twisting the names and backgrounds a little bit to pretend that their scandalous escapades are purely fictional, when we all know that they're based on some very persistent rumours floating around in the real world.
