Intense action and deep-set passions set Wilderness Peril at the top of my list of favorites!
Elizabeth Goddard weaves a gripping plot that begins in the first paragraph and doesn’t release until the final pages of the book. The plan seems simple enough for airplane mechanic, Shay Ridiker; fix a broken plane that her company needs to repossess and let the pilot fly it back to the base. Normal, routine …
Except that the plane is in a remote part of Alaska. And the owner isn’t quite ready to let go of his only means of escape.
Enter her guide and pseudo-bodyguard, Rick Savage. Shay has had experience with this guy before, back when he pointed a gun in her face. Her trust level in Rick hovers near zero, but her interest in him lingers. Whatever the case, the ghosts that haunt the man make it difficult for Shay to feel at all secure around him, yet he’s the only one upon whom she can depend.
A missing man, another who is full of secrets, and a lady mechanic trying to prove that she can succeed in what most would consider a man’s world: the characters drive this story equally as well as the plot. The tension is excruciating at times and the romance focuses more on virtues of the characters rather than just the appearance.
All in all, this is an extremely satisfying read, well-written with attention to details. And these characters will stay with me for some time – definitely the sign of a great book!
