Summary

"He's going to find me," Sarah whispered. "He's going to find me before you do."

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, leaving England to explore 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.

A True Psychological love Story.

This is the first book in a two part series featuring Sarah and Alex. Sarah came to walk on desolation point to escape troubles in England and got far more than what she bargained for. Fighting for her life after being chased by a right-wing group and meeting up with Alex. could they survive?

The best part was where Alex and Sarah were going through the alphabet.

I you do like Nicola Victoria Vincent's narration but for some strange reason she is talking in an American accent which are found in some parts confusing I will certainly listen to her again as she's got such clear addiction and I haven't have found any problems with her other books I've had in the past.

You. can listen to each book as a stand-alone but in my opinion I would listen to them in the. way they were intended, Desolation Point then Tumbledown.

Another great thing is if you have already got this book on Kindle you can get the audible copy at a reduced rate. You you can also read and listen to the book at the same time.

I will certainly be listened to this book again.

More of the same

Yet another variation of this author’s main theme: two women, one a policewoman, fight for their lives out in the wilderness, being hunted by nasty villains, and in the process find to each other. Add to this a dash of medical slang and vivid descriptions of horrific injuries.

don't like the American accent Nicola narrates in

The narrators English accent keeps breaking through the American one she is narrating in making it something to listen out for rather than following the storyline.

Superb story teller

The story held good tension throughout. Believable tale. The winner for me was the performance of the story teller, all the accents were excellent and the passion and fear evident throughout.

Intense, but Bearable... Series... Please?

I stutter stepped in the beginning. I don't handle violation well. This thriller, thankfully, spared me from that. Instead, this is an excellently written and narrated story of two strong women strengthened further by their individual pasts, intertwined present, and future filled with hope for brightness and light.

Great story

The focusing on the story and not on sex was good but when there was sex it was refreshingly not too detailed.
The narrator was good with the American accents but not with the British.
We enjoyed it driving through PA

I loved this book!

Any additional comments?

WOW! What a great listen. You will not stop once you start. Excellent story. Excellent narration. Some people will find the violence against women hard to take. But it is necessary to the plot and does not detract from the quality of the story.

Cari Hunter does it again!!!

I really like Cari Hunter’s books. This one is no exception. The setting is definitely the highlight for me. It is an unforgiving unrelenting character. #mountains #actionthriller #lgbtqa+ #tagsgiving #sweepstakes

Usually love the narration

Sorry to say the narration was lacking. The USA English accents were just odd at best. It was difficult to tell who was “talking” and it was a poor imitation of a Southeast US accent, but the story was in California. The story wasn’t bad.

Great Story With Perfect Narration!

A great story of love and survival, beautifully narrated by Nicola Victoria Vincent. Cari Hunter's writing is both tender and exciting and Nicola Victoria Vincent brings to life both the harsh environment and the array of characters, all of whom are so well defined. She is lovely to listen to and the characters are a real treat. I am happy to see that both narrator and author are doing more books together as they make a great team and long may that continue! My only slight criticism is a technical one: There is not enough space at the end of chapters before the next chapter heading but obviously this must be down to whoever produced it. The last line of each chapter is meaningful and the impact of that is significantly diminished if it rushes into the next chapter. That aside, I highly recommend this book and cant wait to listen to more. Fantastic!
