On her way to start her vacation with her sister, Faith, park ranger Hope Banning gets a call that sends her to a plane crash on a mountain top. Hope persuades Faith to continue on to the white water rafting trip and tells her she’ll catch up when she’s done. Except this assessment and rescue turn out much different than Hope could have believed and now she and civilian Sam Rutherford as well as Faith and several others are fighting for their lives.
This story is a bit frustrating, but overall not a bad read. There is plenty to love about the characters and the writing, but the plot stretches the bounds of believability a bit. Add in majorly stupid decisions by smart people, physical trauma that doesn’t seem to slow anyone down and an ending that drags along for far too long and the balance ends up somewhere in the middle of the road. It could have been better, but it also could have been worse. I do love the characters though. They seem so real.
