LoveReading View on Down to Earth

Michaela and colleagues do a parachute jump for charity.  Michaela is a little sceptical but does eventually jump.  Sailing through a glorious, clear blue sky she suddenly lands in darkness … six years later.  As you might imagine, she and her friends and family have a problem coming to terms with this.  The police believe she had been abducted.  One of the lovely things for me about this book is the time zone but I won’t explain what I mean; I just enjoyed the way it was handled.

Posters nearby proclaim Michaela to have been missing for the last six and a half years! But Michaela is determined to find out the truth. Was she kidnapped? Is she now suffering amnesia, or has something even more extraordinary occurred? With the help of handsome pilot Matt, Michaela sets out to find the truth. And what she discovers rocks everything she has ever believed in to the core! A magical tale that will enchant and enthral fans of Cecelia Ahern and Sophie Kinsella.
