Review: Edge of Survival

Book Review: Edge of Survival, by Toni Anderson, 5 stars


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...

Genre: romantic suspense

Publication date: July 2013

Mature content: yes

Review: Edge of Survival is a book you jest can't put down. It has everything: gripping suspense, a great romance story, engaging dialogs and an amazing landscape as background.

I loved both main characters, each with problems, each with flaws, but doing their best to overcome them - Cam not letting her condition (diabetes) slow her down, and Daniel not just being the hero of the moment but finally admitting he has PTSD and needs help to deal with his nightmares.The only thing I didn't like about Daniel was the fact that he slept with Cameran's assistant at the beginning of the book, otherwise he's just every girl's dream man.

I also loved the brief insights into Labrador, it's wilderness and the good and bad of living so far off civilization. It's different and brings a refreshing change from most mainstream romance novels.

The suspense is some of the best I'm read lately. Just when I thought I had it all figured out - I was wrong. The clues are there but so well weaved into the plot that it's easy to overlook them.

The unexpected twists and turns will keep you glued to the pages of Edge of Survival, and I totally recommend it.

Happy Monday,
