About the Book:

Sabotage in the mountains…

Can this K-9 sniff out the truth?

After surviving a sudden avalanche, mountain survival expert Jayla Hoyt and her search-and-rescue K-9 discover that it was no accident—someone deliberately triggered the mountain explosion. To uncover the culprit, she’ll have to partner with Alaska park ranger Bryson Clarke, a man she doesn’t trust. But when the investigators become targets, can they capture the criminal mastermind…before they’re buried alive?


My Rating & Thoughts:    

We are on the Alaska/Yukon border and there's a joint task force team that monitors both borders and does search and rescue for those that get stuck in Avalanches. There seems to have been more avalanches happening recently than the weather calls for and when somebody on the team gets injured, they seriously start looking into what is going on. While on the mountain searching for evidence, gunshots start happening and it becomes obvious that something more sinister is happening with the team now being targeted. There were a ton happening, I couldn’t even tell you how many times “avalanche take over!” was yelled, but it was a lot. What left me confused is that there is a point in the story that quite a few events are happening back-to-back its like they can’t get a moment of peace and then all of a sudden there is a two-day period where nothing happens and they were able to plan these two quite days. I was confused about this. We learn the two main characters; Mountain survival expert Jayla and Alaskan park ranger Bryson had previously worked together something happened in the past to make Jayla not trust Bryson. Bryson is trying to get Jayla to trust him and show her he is not the same person he was when the incident happened. I didn’t feel the connection between them and didn't feel like they really worked through their past feelings. Even though I wasn’t a big fan of the romance I was invested in the mystery of trying to figure out who they could trust and who they couldn’t.
