FBI agent Sara Vaughn believes a group of pharmaceutical businessmen are engineering drugs with deadly results. Her boss won't approve a sting operation, so she goes rogue—following the suspects on a hike in the Cascade Mountains to record evidence.
But when Sara witnesses them murder one of their own, they target her.
Saved by a handsome volunteer mountain rescue worker, Sara at first suspects Will Rankin is another bad guy hunting her. But when the widowed father of two risks everything to save her, she knows that Will is all that's standing between her and seeing Christmas morning.
Echo Mountain: Saving lives and finding love in the mountains of Washington State
A story filled with suspense, conspiracy theories, chasing the villains in the wilderness, danger, anxiety and scares!
The story has so much action going on, every moment the plot has twists, set backs, and new villains, it was impossible to put down, the story had a hold of me from the start.
A drug company is a powerful enemy to have, and without the knowledge whom they had bought or were blackmailing in the small town, they had no idea to know whom to trust, and where they would be safe.
Sara is a very complex character. The childhood drama she had suffered, had left her mind scared, and in the fearful state, dehydrated, and injured, had put her mind into a spin. My heart went out for her, and the struggle she was facing. She had lost trust, and faith, she is lost and alone, with a tunnel vision of catching the culprits.
In her scared, offensive, survival mode, she keeps pushing Will away, again and again, even though in his company she for the first time feels peaceful and secure.
Will, the widowed single dad of two adorable little girls, is drawn to Sara, despite the danger that seems to surround her. He puts his trust into God, into His Guidance, and keeping him and his loved ones safe and secure, including Sara.
The hunt for evidence of the crimes is tireless, taking them into a wild chase, while risking their lives again and again.
The only possibility of future together for Sara and Will is, if the offenders are caught with evidence that will hold in a court of law, and if Sara learns to trust God in her life, and lean on Him in the storms of life.
Trust is a fragile thing, so easily broken and damaged. The story is a beautiful example of building a trust again, finding kindness and goodness in people around us, making the right choices in life and accepting help when needed.
