Small town girl looking to mend her broken heart…
…Small town boy needing to repair his reputation.
Who knew those simple goals could unearth life-threatening danger?
Holcomb Springs has a wild past, and the wilderness outside its borders hides a treacherous present.
Teacher Ella Sommer is ready to forget about her broken engagement and escape from running into her ex. An overnight hiking trip on the Pacific Crest Trail offers what she needs to clear her head and breathe out under the stars.
Ex-military Reese Vega left Holcomb Springs with a bad boy rep, but has returned wiser, longing for a fresh start in his hometown. His hiking tour business offers that opportunity, especially when he can get into the great outdoors and let his past evaporate into the mountain air.
When Reese and Ella are thrown together on the overnighter, what starts as a simple trek ends up being filled with danger when they stumble across something they weren’t supposed to see.
Can they put aside their history and use their wits to get out of this situation?
Or will it be too late?
You’ll love Beneath a Star-Lit Sky because while the wilderness can’t be tamed, the human heart can.
Beneath A Star-Lit Sky Excerpt 1
Leading inexperienced people in the wilderness, even by someone with the skills Reese Vega had, was a recipe for disaster. The only person he would do this gig for was his brother. Even then, he was starting to regret it.
Reese stood to the side of the trail, the vanilla scent of ponderosa pines wafting around him, and wished he was hiking alone. The trip had originally been booked by Holcomb Springs Outfitters as a snowshoe tour, but the snow had melted to slushy piles on the trail and only remained in the shadows of the trees. Still, it was a beautiful day, if only he could enjoy it. Alone.
As the group of several girlfriends who had come up for a weekend away passed him, one of the women screamed and jumped, grabbing her friend’s arm. “What was that? I heard something in the bushes. Is it a bear? Or a mountain lion?” She shot Reese a wide-eyed look.
He resisted the urge to roll his eyes. “Probably just a squirrel.”
With all the noise they’d made, most wildlife was long gone. Even the chattering blue jays had left the area.
