Desperate, lonely, and dying for a thrill, Destiny Donne is perfect prey for a risk-taking skydiver in sexy noir master Hendricks' best novel since Miami Purity.
Destiny - Desi for short - is a large animal vet in the sticks of central Florida who's about to give up on the rest of life to concentrate on her career. That is, until Tom Jenks walks in her door. Sexy and charming but clearly living life on the edge - he comes to her with a sickly lion cub he's keeping illegally - he brings with him a drug like none she's had before, and she's taken them all. It's called skydiving, and with one jump she's addicted before she can even think to say no. Even though her head is telling her no, she quickly begins an affair with Tom and becomes enmeshed in his world of adrenaline and yearning sexuality. But when dangerous things begin to happen around them and the subject of murder rears its ugly head, she'll have to pull out of the dangerous tailspin she's fallen into before she ruins - or loses - her life.

I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."
Hendricks is one of my favorite thriller writers. She mixes bold heroines, sex, mystery, and Florida gothic like nobody else.
This story opens with a lion cub. How can you say “no” to that?
Frustrated exotic animal veterinarian, Destiny is living out in the sticks, hating life. Along comes a pretty blond, "Tom," with a lion cub. He introduces her to the high-adrenaline world of sky diving, sex-- and murder.
Destiny is seduced, betrayed, and pulls out of a tailspin before she goes--SPLAT. "Sky Blues" is a thrill!
