Book Description

Bonnie Wakefield is an up and coming outdoor photographer with two coffee table books to her credit. When she gets a last minute invitation to speak at a photographic workshop in Glacier National Park, she jumps on it. It will be her first speaking engagement outside Texas so she and her husband, Luke, decide to turn it into a working vacation. But things turn deadly and she’s forced to make a life-changing decision. Can she commit a crime to save the life of her husband? Sounds like an easy decision but it will put the life of a child in jeopardy. And if she does it, can she live with the crime she commits?

About the Author

ABOUT ME I grew up in Edcouch, a small town in the Rio Grande Valley of south Texas. Dad was a citrus farmer and mom's primary job other than being city manager was keeping me and my three brothers in line. The summer after each of us turned twelve we went to work for our dad on the farm. It was hot, tedious work and it convinced me that I didn’t want to do that the rest of my life. After high school I went to college at Texas Tech University where I got my degree in Range and Wildlife Management. I had dreams of being a wildlife biologist, but unfortunately jobs were scarce, so I followed my horticultural interest and went to work for a large, wholesale nursery. That was in 1975 and I’m still there today. It’s been a great career with a wonderful company. My wife, Sharyn, and I live in Austin, Texas, not far from our daughter, son-in-law and three grandsons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Plot Twists on the Canadian Border December 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What starts out as an opportunity to share a passion and to explore some beautiful scenery turns quickly into a nightmare. All readers who enjoy mysteries look for novels that not only create the mystery but also have some additional twists that keeps one reading until 2:00 in the morning. This one does all of that.

2.0 out of 5 stars Reeeeally rambles on and on and on . . . March 4, 2014
By Nonsie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Eh. Not a total waste of time, considering I did go ahead and finish it, in hopes that perhaps I'd find a good plot twist somewhere in there. Unfortunately, it instead followed a pretty predictable, formulaic path. A very loooooong path. A path that ultimately had absolutely nothing to do with the title of the book.

One thing I found to be particularly distracting throughout this book was the constant, and often random, use of non-contractions (for lack of a better word) in the characters' conversations. For example: "If you do not do what I tell you, I am going to shoot." Quite often it would happen that, for instance, the first part of that sentence did actually contain the contraction form, but the 2nd half of the sentence did not.

The first few times I noticed this inconsistent non-contraction usage, I thought perhaps the author was using it for effect, to convey a more dramatic delivery of the line or something. But when it continued throughout the entire book, with its usage being so very random, and inexplicably mixed in with contractions, it simply became an annoyance and a distraction.

I can only assume that the writer was allowing spell-check to do much of the editing. Especially since there was also the occasional mis-spelled word, or incorrect form/usage of a word, like what happens when I voice-text and my phone misinterprets what I actually said.

Sorry for the rambling review, but it just seems to me that if someone is going to go to all the trouble to write a long, convoluted, rambling story, they should at least also make an attempt at realistic dialogue, (or do more careful editing).

Lastly, to be clear, this book is definitely NOT the only ebook that I find this phenomenon. In fact, pretty much every ebook I read, except for those by the familiar and/or well known authors, includes more than an average amount of editing oversights. Guess it just comes with the territory these days.

3.0 out of 5 stars couldn't get into it March 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I got as far as I could... which was a little over halfway. It started out really great! The story was action packed, the characters were good... but some of the plot points started to become a little unbelievable for me. And it annoyed me that every time someone brushed up against another person, arousal was described in detail. There were actually alot of details that seemed to clog up the flow of the story. I started skimming about halfway through and then realized I didn't actually care to read anything but the ending. I've only ever done that one other time, with a book I've gotten this far into. So I skipped to the ending, checked it out, and deleted the book from my kindle. I'm sorry... I wanted to like it, but I just gave up on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Never a dull moment in this fast paced action thriller! December 29, 2013
By Dale
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From the very beginning you are a fan of unfairly treated Luke and Bonnie. If you are one to pull for the underdog, this book's for you. The characters the author creates are remarkably believable even when deception runs rapid. This is a book that you can't put down as the story weaves together several unpredicted outcomes. Can't wait for the next one!

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing is negotiable February 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I found the book okay in that there was nothing either very good or very bad in it. It was 'just a story' at the end and seemed an awful lot of trouble for people to go to to cover up or ride out a potential blackmail.
I am sorry to say that I did sort of need to finish it to find out how it was all brought together but afterwards I sort of felt...."Really" ?

4.0 out of 5 stars Really good book! December 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book has a good story line and keeps the reader interested. I would have prefered a little more character development but the story takes off quickly and keeps you reading. It's a fairly fast paced book with good descriptions so that you can actually vizualize the scenes. I look forward to reading more from this author.

Hackneyed story line, interspersed with improbable action scenes. My recommendation to future readers. Do not bother. Not worth your time.
