Come Fly With Me is the second book in Addison Fox’s Alaskan Night series. I would categorize this book as a woman’s coming-of-age tale rather than a romance. The romance between Grier Thompson and Mick O’Shaughnessy starts when they have already met and are seriously attracted to each other. So that storyline takes a backseat to Grier finding her place in the small town of Indigo, Alaska and coming to terms with the death of her absentee father and recently discovered half-sister.
The storyline of Grier and Kate, the embattled and bitter half-sisters is the heart of this story. They both deal differently with the loss of their father and whether or not they want to create a place for a new sister. Their resentment and struggles keeps the pages real with family dramas. The author does a good job of bringing Alaska alive for the readers and creates a dramatic story involving good natured people.
How do you say no to a man at thirty-thousand feet?
When Grier Thompson is called to Indigo, Alaska to deal with the estate of her late, estranged father, the last thing she expected to find was a hotly contested will, a hostile half-sister who never knew Grier existed, or for that matter, an entire town that doesn’t take kindly to this stranger. Except maybe for Mick O’Shaughnessy.
An Indigo native, Mick has all he wants in life: a soft flannel shirt, a nice cottage, and a thriving airline charter business. Could this simple life get any better? One look at Grier and Mick discovers the answer is a resounding, “yes.” She thinks so too—and if it weren’t for her family baggage, maybe she could relax and enjoy herself before it’s time to return to real life.
But then an unexpected visitor from Grier’s past unsettles the entire town just when the residents were finally starting to warm to her. By the time Mick comes out of the clouds to realize he’s fallen head over heels in love, it might be just too late to win Grier’s heart.
