About the Book

Book:  Flight Risk
Author: Cara Putman
Genre:  Romantic Legal Suspense
Release Date: April 7, 2020

Bestselling author Cara Putman returns with a romantic legal thriller that will challenge the assumptions of truth tellers everywhere.

Savannah Daniels has worked hard to build her law practice, to surround herself with good friends, and to be the loyal aunt her troubled niece can always count on. But since her ex-husband’s betrayal, she has trouble trusting anyone.

Jett Glover’s father committed suicide over a false newspaper report that ruined his reputation. Now a fierce champion of truth, Jett is writing the story of his journalism career—an international sex-trafficking exposé that will bring down a celebrity baseball player and the men closest to him, including Savannah’s ex-husband.

When Jett’s story breaks, tragedy ensues. Then a commercial airline crashes, and one of Savannah’s clients is implicated in the crash. Men connected to the scandal, including her ex, begin to die amid mysterious circumstances, and Savannah’s niece becomes an unwitting target.

Against their better instincts, Jett and Savannah join ranks to sort the facts from fiction. But can Savannah trust the reporter who threw her life into chaos? And can Jett face the possibility that he’s made the biggest mistake of his life?

My Review

This is another good novel from Putnam centering on legal issues. The characters are well drawn as flawed yet with good intentions. Two story threads are intertwined as a reporter intent on uncovering evil behavior interacts with a lawyer intent on protecting clients with innovative software. The reporter's story emphasizes the power of words and the effect they have on the reputation of others. The lawyer's story emphasizes the cutthroat nature of developing and protecting new inventions. Another issue includes keeping teens safe from harm, whether from dysfunctional family members or evil men bent on using them for pleasure. Yet another issue is suicide and its lasting effects, something potential readers should be aware of.

Putnam's novel is a good one for for readers who like plots centering on legal procedure. I wish there had been more clues to the villain sprinkled throughout the book, such as the significance of one character's last name. There is only one scene of intense suspense near the end, otherwise the pace is consistent and the romance reasonable.

My rating: 4/5 stars.

Since the time she could read Nancy Drew, Cara has wanted to write mysteries. In 2005 she attended a book signing at her local Christian bookstore. The rest, as they say, was history. There she met a fellow Indiana writer Colleen Coble. With prompting from her husband, Cara shared her dream with Colleen. Since those infamous words, Cara’s been writing award-winning books. She is currently writing book 33 and dreaming up future books, not hard when she sees what-ifs everywhere.
Cara Putman is an active member of ACFW and gives back to the writing community through her service on Executive Board. She has also been the Indiana ACFW chapter president and served as the Area Coordinator for Indiana.
Cara is also an attorney, full-time lecturer at a Big Ten university, active in women’s ministry, and all around crazy woman. Crazy about God, her husband and her kids that is. She graduated with honors from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln (Go Huskers!), George Mason Law School, and Purdue University’s Krannert School of Management. You can learn more about Cara at
