Back when they were still strangers, TJ Carvalho witnessed the only moment in Vivi Flannigan’s life when she lost control entirely. Now, TJ can’t seem to erase that moment from his mind, no matter how hard he tries. Vivi doesn’t remember any of it, but she’s determined to leave it far behind. And she will.

But when Vivi returns home from her first year away at college, her big plans and TJ’s ambition to become a nurse land them both on the heart ward of a university hospital, facing them with a long and painful summer together – three months of glorified babysitting for Ángel, the problem patient on the hall. Sure, Ángel may be suffering from a life-threatening heart infection, but that doesn’t make him any less of a pain.

As it turns out, though, Ángel Solís has a thing or two to teach them about all those big plans, and the incredible moments when love gets in their way. 


A stunning, heartbreaking story about love, friendship, grief and hope.

I’m not sure I can find the word to describe the emotions that I was feeling, as I read this story. I was blown away . I think that this is a book that everyone should read. Trust me, when I tell you that FLIGHT SEASON is not a story that you will forget. I finished it last night and I still find myself thinking about the story, the characters. I had a feeling that I was going to love this book, I read DREAM THINGS TRUE back in 2015 and loved it. I should expected this. I guess I did not realize that I would end up falling in love with story. I laughed, I cried. I think that I went through the emotions that TJ, Vivi and Angel all went through. I felt connected all three of them. If I were asked which of three of them was my favorite, I don’t think that I would be able to pick because I loved all of them. It’s like asking to pick a favorite friend, there is not such thing as favorite. TJ, Vivi and Angel, by reading their stories I felt as if they became my friends.

I felt as if there was something, an attraction between TJ and Vivi, a minute that they met. I am not sure if TJ liked her too much at first, and I think it was because the first time he met her, she was messed up. I guess in a way he judged her a little because of how he acted, last time that he seen her. At least that the feeling that I got. However that didn’t seem to last long, especially once he started to spend more time with her, and Angel. Once he got to know her, it was not long before he became attracted to her. Even Angel saw it before he did. It was not long before I wanted them to end up together. I could see how much TJ cared about her, probably a way that no guy cared about her before. After what she went through, Vivi deserved her happily after. Both did. I loved reading the scenes between the two of them, most of time they had me smiling.

My favorite was the friendship that Angel, TJ and Vivi developed through book. That was one of things that surprised me. I think it was due to way that Angel acted to TJ and Vivi in beginning of the book. It was not long before the three of them were best friends. The most unexpected friendship. I wasn’t fond of Angel at start, I felt sorry for him but I did not care for his attitude. It was not long before he had me laughing. I thought what TJ and Vivi did for him towards the end was sweet. By the last couple chapters of the book, I was crying and it was good thing I was at home at that time. I couldn’t help myself. I love the birds facts, the bird illustrations in FLIGHT SEASON , and I feel that I learned more about birds that I knew prior to reading book. There is part of me that wants to learn more about birds after I read the book, and I just might.

FLIGHT SEASON might only 2nd book that I read by MARIE MARQUARDT and it won’t be last. I am already amazed by her, by her writing. Once I finished reading the book, I felt inspired to write. I have feeling that she will the author that I will read for years to come. She’s an author that is worth checking out. A writer whose stories will touch your heart.
