Product description

About the Author

Michael Jennings was raised and educated in Seattle, Washington, the fourth born of a large Catholic family of eleven children. He remained in Seattle until joining the Navy shortly after graduating from high school. After completing his naval service, he went to work for The Boeing Company while attending college part time. In 1971, he relocated to Denver, Colorado where he pursued his college degrees on a full-time basis—graduating from Loretto Heights College (now Regis University) in 1973 with two B.A. degrees (Behavioral Sciences & Sociology) and then on to the University of Colorado where he obtained an M.A. degree in Sociology (1974). In 1978, he returned to Seattle and The Boeing Company before taking early retirement in 2003. Aside from writing his first novel, Flight Surgeon, he has written a full-length musical play, Blind Love, which awaits musical composition. He has also written a play, along with his son Ryan, for his eighth-grade class, The Man Who Lost His Way. In addition to plays and short stories, he has crafted over two-hundred poems along with an animated story for young readers (Fluffy); all of which remain to be published. He has two adult children, Brendan and Ryan, and has recently taken up residence in Scottsdale, Arizona, where he spends his time writing his next novel (between swim breaks). He is a voracious reader of novels and attends mass weekly at his local parish.

Format: Kindle Edition
This is mainstream romance. Jennings writes in a traditional long style, taking care to build his characters, and draw the reader deep into their lives. The "heroic doctor" is very much the centre of the story, playing a handsome but needy romantic. Briana is the centre of surgeon Michael's, attention, a young beauty that appears to be too good to be true. That was almost the story!
Both Michael and Briana are amongst the over-rich of affluent society America. Both though are "the right sort", generous with their skills, time and money. Michael's role as Good Samaritan heads the relationship towards disaster. Remember though, this is classic romance.
Flight Surgeon is a book for the leisurely holiday, or the long weekends unwind. Some of it was a little too schmaltzy for my taste, and some of the build was a touch long; but overall I really enjoyed it, and I know that regular readers of romance will love this book. The sex is more about good hands than over heating graphic detail. Those that want the full monty of athletic intercourse, nicely disguised as romance, need to go elsewhere first. Then afterwards read this crafted book, in order to relax and in good time recharge their batteries.
I am intrigued to find out how Frankie, the butler, really fits in. That will have to await the sequel, to which I look forward.

5.0 out of 5 stars Captivating, likable and holds your interest 4 Oct. 2012
By Carol Mayer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Flight Surgeon is the debut novel by Michael R. Jennings. He easily demonstrates his writing style and abilities in capturing this touching story in his first novel.
Set in Nashville, Dr. Michael Thomas has always been focused and driven by his love of medicine. His skills and knowledge of both medicine and flying have brought him purpose and joy in his life.
Dr. Thomas soon meets a beautiful young singer, Briana Price, who is a unique artist and a talented individual in her own right. They are a good fit and think their lives might take a new direction. That was, until another natural disaster calls Dr Thomas away. He soon learns of a Spanish beauty in La Paz, Bolivia. Why is he looking deeply into her eyes, one wonders? Is this just purely a medical diversion or something more; and where does Briana fit in all of this? Was Michael and Briana's meeting just bad timing or something more?
Readers will enjoy the many adventures taken by Dr. Thomas in other parts of the world as a volunteer for DWB, helping those sick and injured after a natural disaster had struck.
If I had one criticism about this novel, it would be that it ended way too fast. It left me with the feeling there was more to be revealed. I wanted much more of this story to unfold. While it may have been left this way intentionally, I personally hope I will see a follow-up novel about these talented and spirited young characters. Based on the writing talent of this debut author, I am sure we will experience more of his writing skills in the future. I know that I for one will be looking forward to reading more of what the author has to offer.
5.0 out of 5 stars When does the movie come out? :) 18 Oct. 2012
By WeekendReader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For a debut novel, I was impressed with both the author's character and plot development. As the story surrounding the two protagonists unfolds, the author provides a rich description of their lives, both past and present. The first set of chapters clearly lay down the foundation for their individual quest for love, but we are also reminded that love is not always easy to hold onto. As the cover design for the novel clearly states, it is a story of love, trust and hope; points which are threaded throughout the novel. As the chapters unfold, the reader becomes aware of the destructive nature of miscommunications and its effects on what appears to be a promising relationship. The deeper I got into the story, the more I found myself wanting to continue to read until finding out how it all ended; which I eventually did at 3 a.m. And I have to agree with an earlier reviewer, the main protagonist was clearly modeled after Taylor Swift; her mannerisms, her speech, pop-country singer, living in Nashville and the cupping of her hands to signal love were all clearly her. I would love nothing more than to see the author writing a sequel to this novel ... the characters are too rich not to carry them further. Having said that, I would also like to see this novel turned into a movie, starring Taylor as herself, of course.
4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Reading Romance Novel 24 Oct. 2012
By Kit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed the developing love story between the main protagonists, Michael and Briana. The way the author seamlessly brings the two of them together was delightful to read; as well as the twist and turns they encountered from their diverse backgrounds as Briana struggles with notions of trust.

The author includes a cast of delightful secondary characters; namely Frankie (cook/house manager) and Bonita (Bolivian beauty). I would love to see a sequel that expounds on these two characters.

The focus of the story, while clearly one of romance and love, engages the reader in issues of hope and trust -- factors that can unmistakably make or break any well-meaning relationship.

In summary, this was an enjoyable book, held together by both the prime and secondary characters. Flight Surgeon provided for a good romance novel, though as I mentioned above, I wish there was more to the story because I've grown to love the four main characters.
