After stumbling on a drug operation, Alice Wilde races through the woods as bullets whiz past, using her skills as a wilderness guide to elude her pursuers. But she doesn’t stay safe for long once one of the armed men recognizes her…and starts stalking her. When the sheriff asks her to guide his men and photojournalist Griffin Slater—her ex-boyfriend—to the crime scene, though, she can’t refuse. Alice knows Griffin’s just there for a story, but after the two of them are separated from the rest of the group, he’s the only person who can save her. And with someone willing to do anything to hunt them down, Alice must put aside their past if she wants to survive.
Wilderness Reunion—Elizabeth Goddard’s final installment in her Wilderness Inc. quartet does not disappoint. There is instant action that propels you into the story which I must say is fast-paced and absorbing. The plot is a rollercoaster ride and the characterization is well drawn out. Griffin Slater is my latest book boyfriend. He is one dapper, vigilant guy whose instinct to detect danger and a story is commendable.
Alice Wilde is admirable. However it is her nerve-of-steel personality that makes her a lovable heroine. She is a tough, outdoors girl who stumbles upon an illegal marijuana farm and her instant reaction is to inform the authorities. What she hadn’t bargained on though is the threat of being seen and then marked by one of the illegal marijuana growers. Things get topsy-turvy from then on.
What I greatly appreciate about this book is the way the author keeps up the tension that Griffin and Alice must endure. This tension rubs off on you as a reader and makes you itch to know what happens next. Of course you’re captivated with the plot because you don’t know and Griffin and Alice doesn’t know what stunt would be pulled next by the people out to get Alice.
So would I propose you go get this book? Yes. Go get it. You won’t be disappointed.
What I thought about Wilderness Reunion?
The story is fast-paced and eloquent and throughout reading it I felt a great urge to reach the end because the suspense was killing me! The author must be given two thumbs up for her dexterity as a writer. She had my full attention from page one. All in all, I immensely enjoyed the crazy ride this book took me on.
