Conservation officer Graham Scott knows what it is to want. The wilderness has given him a lifetime of pleasure, the prospect of a family in a young teacher, Sarah Waters, and her five-year-old daughter, Lila…until it turns on him. One day, Sarah surprises Graham with a picnic lunch during a routine patrol of the Rockwood State Forest. She remains behind to take a few pictures of the sunset…and vanishes.
Graham will spend the next seven months combing the largest park in the continental United States to find her. Consumed by want, no—need, he will stop at nothing to bring her back—for her parents, her daughter, himself, but most of all, for Sarah. Heartache, false hopes, and the unexpected will make you want to get “Lost in the Adirondacks,” the continuing series of Graham Scott novels. Discover if Officer Scott’s devotion and courage will be rewarded. (Summary via Amazon)
ADRENALINE RUSH !!! That is the BEST way to describe Adirondack Sundown by Heidi Sprouse. Adirondack Sundown is the first book in her The Lost in the Adirondack Series and I, for one, am very glad that there will be more.
Adirondack Sundown is written in such a way that your imagination will explode. Once you start reading it, you will not want to stop. Your mind will be so deep in the mountains that you will not want to leave.
Sprouse keeps you going as every viewpoint is covered. You get to see the devotion that Conservation Office Graham Scott has, the fear that Sarah, his girlfriend who was abducted, tries to hide, the determination of Kane, the abductor, to keep Sarah for himself so that he will never be alone living in the Adirondacks. Your heart will break when you read what Sarah’s daughter and parents are going through.
As soon as you open this book, you will struggle with putting it down. You will want to stay with Graham and help him with his search. You will want to be in the house in the woods with Sarah so that she will not lose hope. You will even want to be with Kane as he deals with being alone. And as you get closer to the end you will find yourself reading as fast as you can, turning the pages so quick that you may get a papercut.
The best advice I can give you while reading this book….. Remember to breath !!!
