The Last Flight by Julie Clark

Just finished this.  Goodreads gave it 5 stars, and I agree.  Two women Eve & Clare, both running away from a dangerous  husband and a dangerous job meet at an airport.  And decide to switch planes. 

 

Essentially the women are switching identities. The Last Flight refers to the one of the plane's destination.....it crashes.  The rest of the of the story tells the leading after the crash of one women.  The other tells the story of the other woman leading up to the crash.  Somehow the author makes it very believable.  It also has an ending that stays with you.  This was really an amazing book.  I got from the library after reading about it on Amazon & Goodreads.  It's very suspensful with twists and turns.

The Last Flight is the best book of 2021 so far.  Nothing I've read comes close.

 I enjoyed the Last Flight also. It was hard to put down! 
The Four Winds by Kristin Hannah is very good also.

Now I remember where I heard of a similar plot. We watched a movie where two identical twin sisters exchange lives (without telling anyone). One is married and has kids and leads a simple, country life. The other is a business exec in NY and has an active single life.  One of them gets killed in an accident and thus the story begins. Great movie.

I read this several books back. I did enjoy it and I gave it a good review. Things are not always what they appear.

 

I felt sympathy for both woman.

That was what the author intended.  And she made it work.  I absolutely loved it.

Sounds good but after reading the synopsis on Amazon I have to ask:  how did they switch IDs to be believable enough to get on an airplane ?    Did they look alike?

@FranandZoe ...........If anyone answers your questions it would spoil the book for the rest of us.  My suggestion is you read the book to get your answers.

The only thing that stays the same is that everything changes.
