Kit Shannon is embroiled in controversy again. Angels Flight, book two in the Shannon Saga, finds Kit defending her aunts gardener, whos being charged with a heinous crime. As a result, her good name is plastered across the front pages of the daily newspapers.
Meanwhile, Ted Fox is keeping his distance. Hes busy building a monoplane and hopes to succeed in the air like Ford did on the ground. But all the while, his mind is on Kit. Just when he decides to fight for her, he encounters her on the arm of another man. Has he lost her, or can he win her back?
The authors have created a likeable and strong heroine, though seemingly out of place in the early 1900s. The beginning is a little confusing: several characters are reintroduced only briefly, and I had to struggle to remember who everyone was. The courtroom scenes are excellent, however; I couldnt read them fast enough! Probably not as strong as the first book, but enjoyable just the same. (Sep., 384 pp., $11.99)
