Freefall by Jessica Barry
Surviving the plane crash is only the beginning for Allison.
The life that she’s built for herself – her perfect fiancé, their world of luxury – has disappeared in the blink of an eye. Now she must run, not only to escape the dark secrets in her past, but to outwit the man who is stalking her every move.
On the other side of the country, Allison’s mother is desperate for news of her daughter, who is missing, presumed dead. Maggie refuses to accept that she could have lost her only child and sets out to discover the truth.
Mother and daughter must fight – for survival and to find their way through a dark web of lies and back to one another, before it’s too late…
Freefall had me hooked from the start and I absolutely loved the writing style. The novel centres around a plane crash and the fall out in the aftermath. Not my usual type of read but yet I fully enjoyed the story and constant twists.

Her phone is broken and she knows, that if she is to continue to survive she must take supplies and leave the aircraft wreckage. A daunting task when she has no idea where she is and yet feels a presence of someone on her tail…
‘I know what’s coming for me’ – Alison
Maggie is alone at home, when she is informed from rookie cop Shannon Draper, of a plane crash involving her daughter. The crash has happened in the Colorado Rockies and Alison is assumed dead. Despite the two having been estranged at the time of the accident. Maggie vows to find answers.
‘The plan is stay alive’
Throughout the novel we learn of Maggie and Alison’s past and what led them to be estranged. We also learn of Alison’s whirlwind romance with new fiancé Ben Gardner. It would appear Alison had everything to live for…
‘Everyone has his price. You never know who’s been paid’ – Alison
This novel is much deeper and more complex than I originally thought. 5*
