Natalie Reeve is a gifted sculptor whose ability stems from a unique disability. When her brother helps her buy a home and business in the peaceful mountain community of Redford, what she hopes for is tranquility. How was she to know that events would so quickly spiral out of control.
Trevor MacDaniel is searching for two elderly hikers that seem to be lost when he comes across a dire situation. A mountain lion has snatched a toddler from the trail where he was walking with his father and aunt. The decision to put his life on the line to save the boy requires no contemplation. Having lost his little brother to a horrific accident years ago, he’s not about to let another family go through that kind of pain if he can help it.
The lives of these two are seemingly thrown together when Natalie and Trevor realize that not only did he rescue her nephew, but their businesses are next door as well. The more time they spend together, the more they see that they may be just what each other needs. When Trevor is stalked and Natalie is attacked by the stalker she may have seen, their worlds collide in a way neither of them saw coming.
This is an enjoyable story, and I found myself not wanting to put it down at times, but the beginning is not quite up to Kristen Heitzmanns best work. The story started out with an impressive scene that was not carried out as good as it could have been, and it took too much time to see how the different threads were fitting together. I definitely enjoyed the book, but although I was expecting it to be a five-star read, it really was more of a four-star.
