Goodreads: Never forget…

In September 2001, Tris Miles faces difficult choices. As Chief Pilot of Westin Charter Company, she’s mentoring Jannat, a brash young captain with limitless potential and a shocking secret. An offer to summit the peak of the pilot pyramid entices Tris to quit her job, but an old nemesis stands in her way.

Meanwhile, Tris juggles the men in her personal life. A friend-with-benefits pushes for commitment. An ex-boyfriend returns, still in love with her. Unexpectedly, Tris develops new feelings for someone who is already dear to her.

On September 11th, Tris and her crew depart Edinburgh for the United States. Just feet off the ground, they are mysteriously ordered back to the airport where they learn of a deadly terrorist attack on U.S. soil—using airplanes as bombs.

When Tris discovers that her best friend was a passenger on one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center, her world is shattered.

With a broken heart and her entire life up in the air, Tris doesn’t know where to turn. Can she find the courage to navigate her way home?

Ope’s Opinion: I do not recommend reading this one unless you have read the first two in the series. I did not read the first two and I was lost at the beginning of this story( almost quit reading ). I kept feeling like I was missing information ( I was! ).

The middle section of this book was setting up for the 9/11 flights. It was all about everyone sleeping with and lying to everyone else. I couldn’t find a character I could relate to or was rooting for.

In the end, everyone made amends to the people they were in a relationships with and told the truth, but it was a quick turn around. I may have been more invested and it may have been more believable had I read the whole series.
