Overview

Fairbanks, Alaska? Adventure. 40 below zero. Bears, moose . . . husband-school dropout of an ex. Yikes!

Abigail Vertuccio has three goals in life. One. Don't let people find out about her infuriating habit of seeing the future. Two. Stop seeing the future. Three. Get as far away from Fairbanks, Alaska as she can. She thought she'd succeeded when she hopped in her ancient motor home, Big Ellie, and hit the road. Only now she's back - Grandma's orders - to help run the family rural air service, Alaska Virgin Air.

Home only a week, Abbey stumbled onto a plot to destroy the family business. Never one to leave matters to the experts, she and two of her zanier friends orchestrate a counter-attack of stakeouts and spying that has even the Alaska State Troopers rolling in the aisles. Despite all her efforts, she's batting zero on the spy front. Someone's trying to kill her. As if that isn't bad enough, things with her ex are alternately heating up and scaring the hell out of her.

At this point, she has only one question. What are the chances she'll end up in someone's bed, married again, or just plain dead? Okay. Two questions. What the hell good is being clairvoyant if it never seems to work when she really, really wants it to?

Raves for Alaska Virgin Air:

"In her debut novel, Izzy Ballard has created a heroine who not only is clairvoyant, but sassy, sexy, and warmhearted - the kind of best friend we all wish we could have. Alaska Virgin Air is a comic romp through a northern landscape rich with quirky characters, the adventurous culture of Bush flying, and romantic intrigue. Snappy dialogue, strong characters, and plot surprises make this a compelling read for those who like their mysteries served with humor."
Sherry Simpson, author of "The Accidental Explorer"

"Share intrigue, adventure and romance on the last frontier with an engaging set of quirky characters that include our Alaska born, independent-minded heroine, Abigail Vertuccio, her man-magnet mother, her airline-owning-rock-music-roadie grandmother, revenge-seeking British royalty, their spoiled man-child and enough handsome-charming-save-the-day bush pilots that add the icing on this easy to devour book. Alaska Virgin Air is a comic mystery told with wit and assurance. . .that keeps you engaged to the very end."
Pat Walsh, co-author of "Catch and Release."

"To anyone who enjoys Janet Evanovich and is fascinated by Alaska, I recommend Alaska Virgin Air."
Juanita Helms, former Mayor, Fairbanks, Alaska

". . .the Alaskan setting and the snapping dialog will appeal to readers."
Library Journal

"Alaska Virgin Air is a fun-filled ride of humor, intrigue and romance. Readers will enjoy following its clairvoyant heroine, Abigail Vertuccio, as the tries to save the family air taxi business while navigating her way through mysteries that surround her family and friends in the Last Frontier."
Laurel Bill, author, "Aunt Phil's Trunk"

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When Abigail Vertuccio, a clairvoyant with poor self-esteem, returns to Alaska to help run her grandmother's airline, she soon finds that she is marked for murder. VERDICT Pretty standard fare but the Alaskan setting and the snappy dialog will appeal to readers of cozies.

    Fun book to read.  My biggest complaint with the book was with the main character, who I liked, but who I thought needed to be shaked a few time.  But I loved the characters, and the humor was great.  I wish there didn't have to be a mystery to the story, I think a story just about Abbey coming back to Alaska,  her struggles with running the airline and finding romance was enough of a story.

    Alaska Virgin Air is a fun read.

    This book, about a reluctant clairvoyant from Jersey, living in Alaska and running a rural air service, was funny, with unexpected twists and turns.

    Just okay. If you run out of good stuff, the character will annoy the heck out of you as much as her interactions with people. but, alaska mysteries are worth the effort alone

    Better then I thought it would be.

    This book wad 530 pages long and was a fast read. I thought it would be a paranormal type book and was reluctant to read it. A friend had recommended it, so I decided to bite the bullet and give it a try. There was very few ESP incidents in this book and what there were seemed rather silly and did not amount to much. In fact they could have been left out and it would not have made much a difference. There was several pretty glaring editing mistakes, such as a past tense being used in a current tense sentence. The wrong character's name was used several times also, which was very confusing. I liked the characters. I had one problem with the photo sub plot. All at once Vinnie and Doc were discussing it as though the father's idenity was resolved, but no resolution was ever made. I back tracked two chapters just to be sure I had not missed it. Aggravating. Over all this was an enjoyable book. I think the author was running out of ideas near the end of the book as the ending became a little disjointed and choppy. There wasn't any violence or cursing. There was some rather mild sex. None of the characters seemed to know who they wanted to partner with. Recommended as a chick lit book for readers, age sixteen and up.

    In a bookstore you might be hard-pressed to know where to find this book, which has elements of mystery, romance, and clairvoyence, all of which are expertly blended with characters that charm, a setting that fascinates, and a story that keeps you turning the pages. Highly recommended. The ending leaves you wanting more.

    Slow but enjoyed the end.

    It was slow and there was a little too much fluff at times but overall I enjoyed the story. There were several parts that could have been written better but considering it was free my expectations were low.

    Ok story line but rather disjointed

    I enjoyed the story and the characters, however I didn't really get why the author chose to write in the first person narrative and then left out the important information she received from her clairvoyant visions. The reason you write 1st person is to get into someone's head. This story left out what would probably have been the most interesting part of the story. Chick lit isn't really my thing. Supposedly feminist women who run from responsibility and can't make a commitment to a relationship seem shallow and immature to me instead of feminist.

    Fast, fun and an interesting insider's look at life in Alaska

    Interesting characters, fast plot, humor, mystery and thwarted romance.
    Throw in a good helping of Alaska and you have a good read, all around.
