Set in rural upstate New York along the Delaware River, the Wayward Son Diner is a pit stop for tourists and locals of Sullivan County. Waitress Alex Hanson has seen it all and has no interest in the daily gossip-mongering of the natives. Knowing full well what it feels like to be the grease on the wheel, Alex takes pity on new park ranger Sam Ruiz, when he’s accosted by several eligible females whose need to satisfy their biological clocks outweighs their ingrained trepidation of a government employee.
Alex’s reluctant intervention starts a chain reaction that forces Ranger Ruiz to her doorstep, pushing the NPS agenda, even though he hates to see Alex so on edge. Despite the spark of attraction, neither Sam nor Alex is willing to explore a real relationship - until a dangerous warning hits Sam too close to home. Before Alex can blink, she’s enmeshed herself in Sam’s investigation, and unwittingly becomes a target for the homegrown terrorists gunning for the National Park Service. And for Sam.

Really enjoyed this book. Lots of twists and turns. Great characters...a little romance and mystery
rangers, rape, romance
More to the story than just a romance.
No idea. She did a great job with this one. Loved the accents.
I probably chuckled a time or two and also teared up now and then.
Self Proclaimed Audiobook Expert...lol.
In the beginning of the story I honestly didn't know what was going on. I still don't know why the town hated the rangers. Once I got past trying to understand things and just listened to the story It was nice. Alex was a bit damaged but she was a fighter who wanted to try and have a normal life. Sam was not an alpha but a very strong beta. He took charge when needed and could kick ass when necessary. The towns folk were a bunch of busy body gossips and the end hooks still have me scratching my head but at the end of the story i was happy with what I got.
the narrator Hollie Jackson is quickly moving up in the ranks on my must listen list. Her performance made a good book enjoyable.
