Publisher's Summary

Nikki Burgess survived a terrible marriage and a worse divorce. She's just about given up hope of ever finding happiness. But when her ex-husband suddenly dies, she gets custody of her kids again - and a chance to start over. Dixie McPherson, on the other hand, has had way too much love. She has 11 tennis bracelets, dozens of trinkets, piles of sexy lingerie, and a tarnished reputation when all she ever wanted was true love, a partner, and a family. Carlisle Bartlett is loyal, kindhearted, and the funniest guy slinging drinks in the back of an airplane. But he has an ugly little secret. The only kind of love he's used to comes with bruises. When Nikki, Dixie, and Carlisle are offered the chance to join a new airline in Las Vegas, they don't hesitate. With nothing to lose and everything to gain, these three friends are going in search of their own blue skies.

    I love witty, fast-paced books that keep you turning the page.

    Story
    "Earlier G rated Robyn Carr"

    When I read the other reviews, I knew this was going to be a story that focused more on the airline industry and the strong woman pilot than romance, but didn't realize it was from a story she wrote in 2005. I really like Robyn Carr, and usually get to know and love her characters. However this book treats three main characters almost equally, so you don't ever get inside the head of any one of them. The very mild G-rated romance of one of the secondary characters (Dixie) is sweet but hardly draws you in, and the expected happily ever after ending for the main character (Nikki) is wrapped up so quickly and neatly at the end that I was left saying, huh? This is a perfectly pleasant read (listen) but if you're expecting Virgin River, you'll be disappointed.

    "Slightly Different BUT Still Great"


    This is slightly different to the normal Robyn Carr but she is without a doubt a great storyteller and Therese Plummer is a fabulous narrator.

    Strong characters and storyline. There is nothing more to say than - enjoy.

    Story
    "Not my thing"
    What did you like best about Blue Skies? What did you like least?

    I loved The House on Olive Street and thought I'd give another Robyn Carr book a try. But I thought Blue Skies was a little dumb and really didn't identify with any of the characters.


    Would you recommend Blue Skies to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend it unless they were somewhat interested in the airline industry.

    Story
    "Incomplete"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I actually enjoyed listen to this book. I found the story line of the three characters were incomplete.


    Has Blue Skies turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I will read the reviews a little more carefully in the future


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    She did not Theresa Plummer reading was perfect for the characters


    What character would you cut from Blue Skies?

    Yes, Joe I believe was his name, he was the one starting up the airlines.

    "Couldn't stop listening!"

    Another great one by Robin Carr! I listened straight through to finish it in one day! Therese Plummer is one of my favorite narrators, so that helped, but I really got wrapped up in the story and characters.
    It ended a little too abruptly for me - all the bows were tied neatly, everyone in place. But other than that, excellent book and narration.

    "Fantastic !!!"

    This book is so well written that once you start you can't put it down. Great characters that are so personable you feel you know them. The story itself is believable and exciting.

    "RC & TP did it again"

    Great book. It didn't surprise me that some of the names were family. Liked the connections of the characters. Everything of RC's have been hits with me.
