One wrong step in Los Angeles leaves Alex Pascal scarred and traumatized, unable to continue the career she loves.

In England, a drunk driver shatters Sarah Kent’s family.

For Sarah, exploring 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”

Review: 4.5 out of 5 stars
Cari Hunter hits another one out of the park! 

From the moment I started reading this story I was drawn into the characters and their respective stories.  As a reader I really enjoyed how we were introduced to each character individually and that there was just enough of a back story for the reader to understand that both Alex and Sarah are incredibly scarred both literally and figuratively; without that becoming the entire story.

The other great thing is despite the fact that there is some romance in the story, this is not the stereotypical “romance”.  There is plenty of action and for me a bit of intrigue.  Normally I would say I’d like to see these characters again but I don’t think there is one more thing that could be thrown at these two, barring an apocalypse.  However, I think it would be interesting to come across these two later as supporting characters in another story.  Oh and if Cari Hunter did write a story around an apocalypse I’d read that too.
