This review is from: Desolation Point (Paperback)
From the book cover:
'For Sarah, leaving England to explore the North Cascades is an opportunity to regain her health and her confidence, while Alex has already abandoned LA to make the mountains her home. Drawn to the beauty and history of Desolation Peak, Sarah is hiking alone when a storm leaves her stranded. Determined to track her down, Alex heads into the wilderness, never anticipating the terrible danger she will face. Because Sarah is already running for her life, fleeing from a ruthless criminal with a mission to complete and nothing left to lose. With everything stacked against them, neither woman expects to survive, let alone fall in love.
All they have to do now is find a way out.'
I really enjoyed Cari Hunter's second book.
Basically it involves a British woman who goes hiking in the US and runs into a right blaggard.
Alex, an American, goes to look for her little knowing the danger she's in.
Stormy weather closes in which makes the rescue attempt all the more dangerous and made me glad I had on nice dry socks !
Even though this story is set in a stunning wilderness, the claustrophobic atmosphere is quite overpowering.
Constantly on the run with not much in the way of shelter, the tension is almost palpable at times.
You find yourself wondering what's around the next ridge or what nightmares lay in wait at the next clearing. Very atmospheric.
Well done Cari, this is a must for all you lesfic fans out there.
