Read from the Book
Abby's anxiety increased with every mile she drove away from the main road. She tightened her hands around the steering wheel, trying to ignore the sinking feeling in the pit of her stomach. Only twenty minutes had passed since she'd exited the freeway, but it seemed like longer. Her daughter, Brooke, was sitting in the passenger seat. She yawned into her hand, unfazed by the increasing remoteness and looming trees. At dusk, the branches took on menacing shapes, forming an oppressive canopy overhead. "You didn't have to come," Brooke said. Abby rolled her neck to relieve tension. "I wanted to." "Mom." Abby studied her daughter's pretty face. It was hard to believe Brooke was almost nineteen.

The more you trust, the more you risk…
When plans for a wilderness retreat with her teenage daughter Brooke go awry, Abby Hammond reluctantly pairs up with Brooke''s stepbrother and his dad, Nathan Strom, for the weeklong trek. The only thing Abby has in common with the bad-boy former pro athlete is that their exes cheated with each other. That…and a visceral attraction that''s growing more complicated with every step through the picturesque woods.
Nathan''s wild-card reputation lost him his career and his family. After years of regret, he''s ready to fight for what truly matters—and that includes Abby''s hard-won trust. When Brooke goes missing, Nathan knows he''s her best and only hope of rescue. But the deeper into the rugged mountains they go, the more dangerous the territory will prove—for their safety and for their hearts.
"Taut with emotion, suspense and danger. Sorenson expertly weaves the two stories into a heart-wrenching conclusion."
