Publisher's Summary

Dr. Cameran Young knew her assignment wouldn't be easy. As lead biologist on the Environment Impact Assessment team, her findings would determine the future of a large mining project in the northern Canadian bush. She expected rough conditions and hostile miners... but she didn't expect to find a dead body her first day on the job.
Former SAS Sergeant Daniel Fox forged a career as a helicopter pilot, working as far from the rest of the human race as possible. The thrill of flying makes his civilian life bearable, and he lives by his mantra: don't get involved. But when he's charged with transporting the biologist to her research vessel, he can't help but get involved in the murder investigation... and with Cameran, who awakens emotions he's desperate to suppress.
In the harsh and rugged wilderness, Daniel and Cameran must battle their intense and growing attraction while keeping ahead of a killer who will stop at nothing to silence her.

Disappointed in this book

Had high hopes for this book at the start but they slowly drained away as the book went on. The narration by Lauren Fortgang is excellent so it disguised the issues with the writing for a while. There are so many annoying features about the characters and how the plot is developed that I struggled to finish the last four hours.

A few things that don’t give away significant spoilers include...

- Too short a timescale to develop the relationship and have the necessary ups and downs of a good plot line in a way you can buy into.

- Cam’s romantic history. Two previous fiancés? Really? Kinda makes her seem like she’ll agree to marry anyone, and her being head over heels doesn’t mean a lot.

- Someone wakes up freaking out you’d think that PTSD would cross most people’s minds and you’d give them a break. Also, expecting them to lay their soul bare when you’ve not known them long and you can’t even imagine what they’ve been through just makes you a d-head.

- The investigative skills of the authorities is more akin to the Famous Five. No, that’s giving them too much credit as those five kids would do a better job. Completely inept! Seems a bit excessive even if it is fiction.

- Sex on the mind of everyone - not in a sexy way, just a teenage boy kind of way. Should have used some of those words to develop the characters a bit more instead.

- Excessive number of points of view wrecks the flow and seems like a tool used by an author who hasn’t got the skills to develop the story and characters through one or two people’s eyes.

- Good on the author for opening people’s eyes to type 1 diabetes, but this book focused on it tooooo much. So much for them saying early on that a person isn’t defined by their diagnosis. And Daniel acting from the start like Cam can’t manage her own treatment and she’s 5 years old (way beyond being supportive and concerned), when she’s diligently controlled it for years without his involvement.
- Many other niggles too..
