I really enjoy Love Inspired Suspense novels. They are short read and very interesting reads. Hunted in the Wilderness
by Kellie VanHorn is the latest book in this Genre/Series that I have read.

Hailey Whitcombe has just been named Future CEO of her Father's AeroTech Company. She is now on the run though after being framed for Murder and Espionage. She has a Camera full of Evidence and is on her plane when the plane is shot down. Hailey is now stranded in North Cascades National Park. She is so glad when Park Ranger Ezra Dalton discovers her lost in the Wilderness and decides to help her get to safety. Ezra finds himself not only helping her to get out of the Wilderness but protecting both of them from being killed by the ones Hailey is fleeing from. Will Hailey and Ezra be kept safe and make it out of the Wilderness? Will there be a Romance between Ezra and Hailey? 

I was reeled into the storyline from the very first chapter. The Adventure and Intrigue began immediately and it didn't ever end. I admire Hailey for being wise to make sure she is proven innocent when her fellow co-worker stealing work info. Ezra is a widow, losing his wife 3yrs ago and he feels the need to protect Hailey. I really love how the author bought them together and they each help one another. The romance that sparked between the pair as they made their way through the hike out of the wilderness was heartwarming. The book is not predictable and I really like that. The twists and turns kept me reading on and finished it in a couple of hours. I had never read any books by Kellie VanHorn and I truly enjoyed this one. I will definitely be looking to read some of her other books. I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who enjoys Christian Romance Suspense. FANTASTIC BOOK! 

Kellie VanHorn is an award-winning author of inspirational romantic suspense. She has college degrees in biology and nautical archaeology, but she’s always found her sense of adventure most satisfied by a great story. When not writing, Kellie can be found teaching her four children, camping, baking, and gardening. She lives with her family in west Michigan.


More from Kellie

One of my favorite things about being a writer is living out wild adventures in my imagination. I get to enjoy all the action and feels without any of the unpleasant real-life problems I’d face if I were actually being chased by bad guys with guns. The more exciting and far-off the setting, the better! My family loves to travel and to camp, so we’ve spent a lot of time visiting national parks around the U.S. Our favorites include Grand Teton, Rocky Mountain, Devil’s Tower, and Badlands. We pile our four kids into the car, fill it to the brim with gear, and tent our way from park to park for weeks at a time in the summer.


For Hunted in the Wilderness, I wanted to explore a park we haven’t had the chance to visit yet—North Cascades National Park in Washington state. In fact, my first glimpse of the story came to me when I was scrolling through my Facebook feed and saw a picture of a lake in the Cascades. Inspiration struck, and I knew the heroine of my next book had just crash-landed her Cessna airplane in those mountains, and she needed a handsome, single park ranger to come help her escape the bad guys.


What makes this park such a perfect setting for a romantic suspense is not only the gorgeous scenery, but also the fact it’s very remote. The region is easy enough to access via road from Seattle, but most of the protected land can only be reached on foot, horseback, or float plane. Because I hadn’t been there myself, I relied on a topographic map and lots of research to help me craft the setting and make it an indispensable part of the plot.


Of course, now that I’ve studied the trail systems so extensively, I’d love to visit the Cascades in person one day. One of my teenaged sons who loves hiking has all sorts of plans for us to take a long backpacking trip out there, even though neither of us has ever backpacked before. I might have to work up my courage a bit before I’ll be ready to hit the trail without our minivan full of gear. 😉
