Brannon Callahan, a search-and-rescue helicopter pilot working for the great Smoky Mountains National Park, is as beautiful and tough as the terrain surrounding her. When a blizzard crashes the small helicopter carrying U.S. Marshall Roark Holland, she must save him and the donor heart he is transporting to a comatose government witness whose minds holds a crucial piece of information. Without it, the largest child trafficking ring in history-closer than Brannon or Roark can imagine-will slip further into darkness somewhere along the Appalachian Trail.

My thoughts:

I don't normally read Christian Fiction but this sounded good so I thought I would give it a shot, and it turned out to be a pretty quick and interesting read. It was full of action, suspense, some romance, with a little bit of faith added to the story without being overtly preachy.

The characters were well rounded and believable. I loved the setting of the book, the Smoky Mountains, and that some of the main characters were park rangers. I find myself drawn to books set out in the wilderness and this one was no exception.

The story was intriguing and kept me on the edge of my seat. Lastly it was well written and it flowed easily enough that I finished the book quickly without getting bored with it. I'd have no problem recommending this to anyone looking for a good suspense/thriller type novel.
