In The Peaks Of Montana
on 5 September 2012
I wouldn't normally go for an adventure/suspense story (with romance) and I had picked up this book on impulse from the library. I liked the setting and the description of the adventures in the mountains of Montana. It's got the PTQ (page turning quality) and I thought the pacing and structure were good. I liked the way she treated the landscape like a character, giving it a dominant role and I liked the care with the detail of preparations for the mountain trekking and so on. The author certainly chucked every possible rock at the main character, before she got her down from the tree. The interactions between the main characters were good and the development of their relationship was perfectly plausible: people do think like that. I thought the bear element was original and really racked up the danger level. The ending was satisfying, because with such a dominant element of romance, it required a positive outcome. I'm not sure about the title, PREY. The various instances of 'hunter' and 'prey' roles in the book were interesting, and I really liked what she did with the different interpretations of those, but I'm not sure the title reflects the core thread of the story. However, the cover design and the blurb hooked me. I enjoyed reading this book and I shall read more by this author.
