Against the Wild by Kat Martin (Review)


Where the men are as bold and untamed as America’s last wilderness

It’s been three years since Lane Bishop tragically lost her fiancé, and she’s finally ready to risk her heart on someone else. The hot look in Dylan Brodie’s eyes says he’s going to be that man.

But when Lane flies to the remote 1930’s fishing lodge to help him renovate, she discovers a little girl who won’t speak, eerie legends and strange sounds in the night. And when she investigates the history of the lodge, she uncovers a legacy of injustice and murder.

As danger stalks his daughter and the woman he is coming to love, Dylan must risk everything to uncover the shocking truth.

As with all of Kat Martin‘s books, AGAINST THE WILD is a great book. It takes place in Alaska, and after visiting the state and falling in love with the wilderness, I really enjoyed reading this particular book. As Kat described the landscape and the Alaskan Indians, and the small towns, I was transported back to the time I spent there.

The story revolves around an old lodge with mysterious happenings and of course, there’s love in the air. It was a fun read and definitely had a little suspense thrown in for good measure. If you are a fan of Kat Martin’s, you’ll definitely love this book, and if you haven’t read any of her books, this would be a great one with which to start. You’ll not only enjoy suspense and romance, you’ll enjoy learning about the Alaskan outback. OH! And I want one of them on the front cover!

They collected her bags, then went in search of her dog. One of the airport staff released him from his giant cage, and he raced to her side as if she had saved his life. Which she’d actually done when she’d rescued him from the pound just hours before he had been scheduled to be put down. ‘You might have mentioned you were bringing your horse.’ Dylan said drily. Lane just smiled. ‘This is Fin.’

‘It’s about a hundred miles from Ketchikan to Eagle Bay.’ She started snapping pictures again as if she wouldn’t have time to get enough. He didn’t tell her the view she was looking at went on for thousands of miles. There was only so much a city girl could take.

‘You can have all the time you want. I won’t push you. But when I see the same heat in your eyes I know you see in mine, don’t expect me not to act on it.’

AGAINST THE WILD gets five stars from me. Enjoy!
