Book Blurb:

Lisbeth Douglas works as a pilot, mechanic, and flight instructor. As a lady flyer in the 1930s, she works in a male-dominated profession. Fearful of ridicule, she keeps her dream of becoming a test pilot a secret. A cocky airplane salesman arrives in Saplingville and sets up shop at the airport. He steals her heart but will never take possession of her dreams.

Paul Williams is more comfortable designing airplanes than flying them. To please his father, he takes a job as an airplane salesman. His boss sends him to the deep South, where he meets a ravishing daredevil of a woman. His heart takes a nosedive at the first sight of her. How can he give up his controlling ways and let her soar?

My Review:

Story Impressions –

Will she sacrifice her dream for Paul’s love or will she go after her dream, even if it means losing him forever? A free-spirited heroine and a rugged hero, both lovers of aviation, propel the plot. It’s easy to see how alike Paul and Lisbeth are yet both too stubborn to admit it. I connected with Lisbeth right away. As a woman, I love reading an independent heroine willing to risk it all to make her dream a reality. The heartfelt romance between her and Paul is such a joy to read.

Narrator’s overall voice – Dawson McBride’s voice resonates with mood and character. Whether he’s narrating in Lisbeth’s voice or Paul’s voice, he brings the characters and story to life. The quality of Dawson’s voice makes for an incredible listening experience. Does the narrator fit the characters? Yes, Dawson McBride makes the characters come to life. Narrator’s reading style – The reading style is even with a flowing voice. He innately knows how to pull the listener into the story. Narrator’s impact on reading experience – It’s all about the partnership between Dawson McBride and Jane Lewis. Jane Lewis is a prolific writer who writes with emotion and Dawson brings that story to life through his vocal performance. Narrator’s pacing – The pacing is perfect with just the right amount of theatrical flair. Audiobook flow – The flow of this audiobook is continuous. As someone who listens to many audiobooks, this audiobook is like going to a professional play but from the comfort of your home, office, gym, or car. What makes this audiobook unique – This audiobook carries the reader away. Would I recommend this audiobook – YES! This is a brilliant audiobook and I recommend it to all historical romance readers.
