Summary

With a heroine you will root for from the first minute, Flying Solo is about growing up, coming home and learning to make a life for yourself on your own terms from the author of New York Times best seller Evvie Drake Stars Over.

Smarting from her recently cancelled wedding and about to turn 40, Laurie Sassalyn returns to her Maine hometown of Calcasset to handle the estate of her great-aunt Dot, a spirited adventurer who lived to be 93. 

Alongside boxes of Polaroids and pottery, a mysterious wooden duck shows up at the bottom of a cedar chest. Laurie's curiosity is piqued, especially after she finds a love letter to the never-married Dot that ends with the line "And anyway, if you're ever desperate, there are always ducks, darling".

When the mysterious duck disappears under suspicious circumstances, Laurie feels compelled to figure out why anyone would steal something worth so little—and why Dot kept it hidden away in the first place. 

Suddenly Laurie finds herself swept up in a righteous caper that has her negotiating with antiques dealers and con artists, going on after-hours dates at the local library and reconnecting with her oldest friend and her first love. 

Desperate to uncover her great-aunt's secrets, Laurie must reckon with her own past and her future—and ultimately embrace her own vision of flying solo.
