Beauty in Flight

Her beauty once opened doors, but the felony conviction now slams them shut. 
Harper Cloud used to love the gilded glamour of Las Vegas, but on the far side of prison, she sees the cracks in the veneer. These days, she keeps her head down and focuses on the elderly patients in her care. Even her new wealthy east-coast boyfriend, Derrick, can't entice her away. She's trusted men before, and look where that got her. 
She tries to brush off the feeling that she's being watched. She won't allow a baseless paranoia to derail her life. But when she's followed home one night, her pursuer gets within a hair's breadth of grabbing her. She knows it's time to get away from Las Vegas. 
Maybe Derrick can be trusted. Maybe his job offer—to care for his aging grandfather in Maryland—will be the second chance she needs. 
But Derrick has secrets of his own, secrets that could take him down--and take Harper with him.
Can there be a second chance for someone like her?

My Review

It is a good thing that Harper is the main lead character in this book and series. She is about the only character that I liked and formed a emotional connection towards. Well there is one other person that I did like and that was Derrick's grandfather, Red. He was so kind. It was puzzling that Derrick and Red are related as Red is so nice and Derrick is a jerk.

So the beginning of the story was good. I even stuck with this story to almost the half way point. I will admit that I did skip ahead after this to about the last third of the story. The last third really picked up speed. It did help make up some for the dull moments. In fact, I actually liked what I read in the last third of the book and how it ended that I am intrigued to see what happens to Harper in the next book.
