Title: Skid

Rene Gutteridge

About the Author:
Rene Gutteridge
is the author of twelve novels, including the Boo series, the Storm series, and the novelization for The Ultimate Gift, as well as Scoop and Snitch, the first two Occupational Hazard novels. She lives with her husband, Sean, and their two children in Oklahoma City.

My Review:
I am an avid reader and a particular fan of fiction, especially good clean fiction. It is my escape from the trials and frustrations of daily life. I love getting lost for a little while in a good book. I was pleased that my first book review turned out to be a good one!
Since I've never done a book review I'm not exactly sure how much to say about the book and how much to leave out, I want you to WANT to READ this book so I can't give too much away. Let me just tell you that it is a great combination of intrigue, humor, interesting characters and an interesting (if slightly unbelievable) plot. I love how the characters are actually believable to me. And of course something that I always love is an underlying message of faith and hope.
This is something that is too often lacking in our world today, especially in our media.
If you are in the mood for something funny, interesting, entertaining and heart warming, you definitely want to read SKID. Look below for ways that you can buy or WIN this book! It's definitely one that I am glad to have in my library! And now I'm excited to check out all the other books by Rene Gutteridge.


Blissfully unaware that Atlantica Flight 1945 from Atlanta to Amsterdam is about to make aviation history, First Officer Danny McSweeney focuses his energies on navigating the turbulent personalities of an eccentric female captain, a co-pilot with a talent for tactless comments and conspiracy theories, and a lead flight attendant with an outsized attitude that definitely exceeds the limits for carry-on baggage.

On the other side of the cockpit door, the unscheduled in-flight entertainment includes a potbellied pig, a jittery diamond courier, and the recently jilted Lucy Meredith, whose personal mantra of “What Would Oprah Do?” will be challenged by the sudden appearance of her ex and his new traveling partner. On her left sits Hank Hazard, whose unusually polite but constant requests–prompted by his covert role as a spy for the airline–test the limits of the crew’s customer service.

But as Lucy and the rest of the crew discover, Hank’s odd behavior is linked to a quiet faith that may play a key role in the fate of everyone on board. Especially when an unexpected traveler sets this already bumpy flight on a course toward the unfriendly skies.
