First Book of the Year 2014
Labels: First Book of the Year
I wasn't sure if I would participate in this but it looks like so much fun, I couldn't resist. Thank you to Sheila at Book Journey for hosting this.
My first book of 2014 is going to be a review book, of course. It's a mystery from Berkley. I'm not sure it's a cozy, though, but it looks really good. It's a book I would have read even if it wasn't for a review...
This is the synopsis from Goodreads:
FIRST IN A NEW SERIES!
Search and rescue expert Gracie Kinkaid risks her life on a daily basis to save strangers. But going up against a coldhearted murderer is one kind of danger she’s not prepared for
As a volunteer for Timber Creek Search and Rescue, missing out on holiday festivities is nothing new to Gracie. After all, disasters don’t stop happening because of a cooked turkey. So when Gracie is called out on Thanksgiving for four hikers missing in the wilderness of Southern California, she packs up her gear and heads out to find them.
The mission quickly goes from routine to deadly. An early season blizzard sets in. The one missing person the team does find, famous actor Rob Christian, remembers being attacked by someone else on the trail, someone trying to kill him. And Gracie’s partner leaves to get backup, taking the radio—their only link to the outside world—with him.
Alone in the mountains, Gracie will have to use all her expertise to keep Rob alive. But with an unknown killer lurking somewhere in the dark, even that might not be enough to save them
