CLEAR TO LIFT book jacket copy:
Navy helicopter pilot Lt. Alison Malone has been assigned to a search and rescue team based at Naval Air Station Fallon, Nevada, near the rugged peaks of the Sierra Nevada, and far from her former elite H-60 squadron. A rule follower by nature, Alison is exasperated and outraged every time she flies with her mission commander, “Boomer” Marks, for whom military procedures are merely a suggestion. Alison is desperate to be transferred out of the boonies, where careers stagnate, and back to her life and fiancé in San Diego.
Alison’s defenses start to slip when she meets mountain guide Will Cavanaugh during a particularly dicey mission. Will introduces her to a wild, beautiful world of adventure that she has never known before. Stranded on a mountain during a sudden dangerous blizzard, Alison questions every truth she thought she knew about herself. When Will braves the storm to save her life, she must confront the fact that she has been living a lie. But is it too late to change course?
Full of action and adventure, dangerous and heart-stopping rescues, blizzards and floods, family secrets and second chances, Clear to Lift is a thrilling woman’s journey as she finds confidence, truth, love, and herself against the majestic backdrop of the Sierra Nevada.
Here’s what bloggers and the media are saying:
***Clear to Lift is action-packed with rescue scenes that will keep your heart racing, paired with a thrilling adventure of self-discovery. – Chico’s Inside Chic
***A “summer book pick” by Sunset Magazine, SheKnows.com, and Working Mother Magazine
***Set amongst the beautiful Sierra Nevada landscape, Clear to Lift is a compelling story of adventure, love, family, and self-discovery. The tension, both romantic and life-and-death-danger, leaps of the page, drawing you into this epic story. It is unforgettable, addictive and just so much fun! With vibrant characters, a strong and relatable heroine, blizzards, storms, unexploded bombs, a gorgeous Labrador search and rescue dog, doughnuts and a very ruggedly handsome mountain guide, this book has everything I needed to make it unputdownable. I loved it. – Madison’s Library
***Wilson has a particular knack for writing action. Like Hover, Clear to Lift‘s climax had me anxiously turning every page. –Team Skelley
***I would normally roll my eyes at a review that states, “Heart-pounding, edge-of-seat adventure.” But I’m going to say that. I am aware that is sounds cheesy and clichéd, but in this case, it’s true. As I read the final rescue scene in this novel, my heart was pounding and I was on the edge of my seat, literally. –Book Babe
