Can't-Wait Wednesday: Her Last Flight

Can't-Wait Wednesday is hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings and helps us spotlight upcoming releases we're eagerly anticipating!

Her Last Flight
Beatriz Williams
Expected publication date: June 30, 2020
In 1947, photographer and war correspondent Janey Everett arrives at a remote surfing village on the Hawaiian island of Kauai to research a planned biography of forgotten aviation pioneer Sam Mallory, who joined the loyalist forces in the Spanish Civil War and never returned. Obsessed with Sam’s fate, Janey has tracked down Irene Lindquist, the owner of a local island-hopping airline, whom she believes might actually be the legendary Irene Foster, Mallory’s onetime student and flying partner. Foster’s disappearance during a round-the-world flight in 1937 remains one of the world’s greatest unsolved mysteries.

At first, the flinty Mrs. Lindquist denies any connection to Foster. But Janey informs her that the wreck of Sam Mallory’s airplane has recently been discovered in a Spanish desert, and piece by piece, the details of Foster’s extraordinary life emerge: from the beginnings of her flying career in Southern California, to her complicated, passionate relationship with Mallory, to the collapse of her marriage to her aggressive career manager, the publishing scion George Morrow.

As Irene spins her tale to its searing conclusion, Janey’s past gathers its own power. The duel between the two women takes a heartstopping turn. To whom does Mallory rightfully belong? Can we ever come to terms with the loss of those we love, and the lives we might have lived? - from Goodreads
I have loved Beatriz Williams' books for years; this one sounds a little different but just as amazing as her previous books!


  1. Now I am curious if she is Foster.

  2. I really hope you love this one Angela!

  3. Oooh! I love the concept and that cover is gorgeous! :)

  4. This sounds incredibly interesting - and the relationship between the women especially. A duel especially sounds like such an antagonistic relationship but obv they still talk to eahc other for Irene to complete telling her story. So many questions!!

  5. I agree! It does sound a bit different, but I have high hopes. Definitely looking forward to this one too!

    1. Me, too! I preordered it and can't wait for it to get here!

  6. I am really excited about reading this one as well. I like Beatriz Williams and this time period. I hope you love it when you read it!

  7. Her books are always winners for me, and I am so looking forward to this!

  8. This sounds really good, especially the relationship between Janie and Irene.
