survived either Told from the perspectives of a grieving mother searching for answers and a daughter who seems to be running from her past.Even though the story isn t exactly perfect, I really couldn t turn the pages fast enough on this one as you can t help but feel invested in the characters, particularly the mother Maggie is what really drove the story in my opinion I m not even a parent but you do almost feel like you are grieving with her and understand her determination to find outabout what was going on with Allison during their estrangement The thriller aspects of the story are done pretty well although there were a few times when you wanted to shout at the characters, Come on, wise up Overall, it is a decent thriller, but an even better story about a mother s love for her child I won a free copy of this book in a giveaway I was under no obligation to post a review and all views expressed are my honest opinion This is the kind of pulpy, plot based read that you can power through in a single sitting, preferably on the beach or during a plane ride if the plane crash aspect doesn t make you too nervous The short chapters keep the pacing up and make it easy to zip through.However, seasoned thriller readers might be a little disappointed by the lack of surprises Most of the plot is fairly easy to predict and the one promised twist felt a lotlike deus ex machina to me That being said, this can This is the kind of pulpy, plot based read that you can power through in a single sitting, preferably on the beach or during a plane ride if the plane crash aspect

the plot is fairly easy to predict and the one promised twist felt a lotlike deus ex machina to me That being said, this can be forgiven if you just sit back and enjoy the ride, which is admittedly a fun and easy one Maggie learns that her estranged daughter Allison died in a plane crash with her fiance and attempts to piece together the last couple years of her life Meanwhile, Allison s perspective instantly reveals that she is not actually dead but running from a mysterious someone Maggie s digging and Allison s desperate bid for survival race against each other, until it all comes together at the climax.The characters are somewhat interesting They have a sort of general appeal to anyone who is a worried parent or has a difficult relationship with their own parents But fans of lots of character development should probably seek out a Tana French or Jane Harper instead I felt it was a book focused on discovering the whats and hows, without spending too long on the whys Freefall is an easy, escapist piece of fiction Nothing demanding or life changing, but fun nevertheless.Blog Facebook Twitter Instagram Youtube I don t know about you, but sometimes when I m reading a book, something about the title triggers a song or even two in my brain, something that keeps running through my head the entire time Needless to say, I was glad I devoured Jessica Barry s Freefall in one day, because I don t know if I could have handled Tom Petty s Free Fallin running through my head longer than that If it gets stuck in your head, you re welcome Here are the facts I am alone I am on a mountain The plane I I don t know about you, but sometimes when I m reading a book, something about the title triggers a song or even two in my brain, something that keeps running through my head the entire time Needless to say, I was glad I devoured Jessica Barry s Freefall in one day, because I don t know if I could have handled Tom Petty s Free Fallin running through my head longer than that If it gets stuck in your head, you re welcome Here are the facts I am alone I am on a mountain The plane I was on has crashed My body is covered in bruises and cuts and my left leg has a wound that will soon become infected if I don t clean it My finger is strained or broken and quickly swelling I have very little food and water The sun is still high but it will be dark in a few hours and my only shelter is a twisted hulk of metal that could, at any minute, explode Allison Gardner survived the crash of her fianc s plane in the Colorado Rockies But even though she is battered and bruised, she knows the last thing she can do is wait at the crash site for someone to rescue her If they know she s alive, they will find her and kill her She has to force herself to get as far away from the crash as possible, because she s come too far to die now.When Allison s mother, Maggie, learns that Allison is presumed dead, she is devastated, confused, and shocked She and Allison have been estranged since a family tragedy two years ago, so she had no idea why Allison would be on a private plane, nor was she even aware that Allison was engaged, much less to the handsome CEO of a successful pharmaceutical firm Maggie wants to understand the woman her daughter became in the two years since they ve spoken, and theshe starts digging into things, theshe realizes things in Allison s life weren t what they seemed.Two headstrong women are determined to succeed, Allison in trekking across the mountains in order to find a safe place to hide before she is found, Maggie in uncovering the secrets no one is telling her about Allison s life the last two months Maggie has no idea of the danger her daughter was in, and has no idea of the risks she is taking looking for answers Freefall alternates in narration between Allison and Maggie, and most of Allison s chapters flash back to her life before getting on that plane, and why she needs to keep alert and keep going It s a fascinating, fast moving story that has some twists you can see coming if you ve read any thrillers, but some twists surprise you Barry keeps you hooked on both of their stories, and keeps you hoping that both women will be successful in their quests.I really enjoyed this book, and as I mentioned, I read nearly the entire thing in one sitting Barry has a great talent for teasing out the suspense and unfurling secrets little by little, almost in real time as Maggie starts looking into what happened to Allison This was a great thriller for a snowy day, and I look forward to seeing what Barry comes up with next See all of my reviews at itseithersadnessoreuphoria.blogspot.com, or check out my list of the best books I read in 2018 at 4 exciting stars Freefall opens with Allison surviving a
