Thriller author Stacey Carroll has the Avia I and Avia II books out this summer, and they are the heist books you have to read. The crime drama genre has a lot of options for you, but only this series can give you all the things that you want in one book series. You will be completely shocked by this series, and you can read more about it below.  


These books are all about the adventures of a drug running pilot who also happens to be an addict. Right there you get the idea that this woman is not only flawed but searching for her path in life. No one starts into a career as a pilot, expecting to be a drug runner, but she has landed in that world. The author is not just asking us how she gets out of it. She is asking us how she can reconcile herself to her job and her reality.  


The obvious niche of this book is crime because it is illegal to fly a plane for a drug cartel, but the hero in these books is not perfect. The heist aspect comes in when you least expect it, and it causes you to think about how she will even go on living if she has to run afoul of the cartels.  


The beauty of these books is in how creative they are. The Avia I and Avia II books are all about how this woman can start to take back control of her life which she clearly does not have when the books start. She is flailing hoping for anything that will save her, but she cannot get that just by stopping. The cartels do not let you stop, and getting off heroin is even harder.  


These are books written by a woman for women. These are books that talk to women about making their own choices in life and having the bravery to do something that might scare them. There are a lot of women who would not do what Avia has to do in the books, but they might have the courage to try something new, start a new career or take a leap of faith after reading about her story and her adventures.  


Stacey Carroll is a woman who wants to speak to women through a genre that has done a lot for her in the past. She believes that women deserve to have their own heroes, and she wants women to be the focus of her work. She feels much more confident writing about a woman who is so much like herself, and it is also important to read into the many themes in the book because addiction and dependency come in many forms.  


You have to put the Avia series on your summer reading list because this woman is far more than just a pilot or addict. She is a hero for our time.
