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.

"A much-needed voice and perspective in contemporary women's fiction." (Library Journal)
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Book 1 Hover was excellent and this book follows the pace of book 1.
I am a huge fan of reader Angela Dawe, she does male voices so very well. Ms Dawe does a wonderful job of bring you into a Search and Recuse situation as if you were right there in the helo cockpit. Good job by author as I didn't know how she would follow up in this story.
I love the dialogue in the helicopter on a recuse mission. Fast pace as you learn about the different areas of S and R. Note: the bakery in Bishop is a very real great place.
Note: I do use the new 1.25x speed to get all the action the author intended.
when Clark can't check the "no joy" scene, breaks your heart.
