When I was (much) younger, I did some backpacking in some very remote areas. So I enjoyed this story a lot. The whole "strangers struggling to survive under terrible conditions and falling in love" plot was great fun. And I feel like she did a good job of it. I really enjoyed seeing the heroine figuring out how to make do with what was on hand in order to survive. And I enjoyed the way the two of them worked together, and I liked the way they verbally sparred with one another.
In short, I liked this book. A lot. Try it. I don't think you'll regret it.
The characterization was good. Like many of Linda Howard's novels, it gives you a detailed look at the main characters thought process.
There are really only two characters through most of the book, Cam and Bailey. I liked them both. They came across as very real. Linda Howard has a knack for putting normal people into unusual situations and letting us watch the outcome.
I have listened to many of her performances and loved them all. I find she has a nice range and I never catch myself cringing at her male/female voices as sometimes happens with other narrators.
I found i had a hard time putting this down. Or turning it off as the case may be. I wanted the drive to last longer so I wouldn't have to pause the book.
The romance itself felt rushed. There was a nice twist at the end.
i liked it a lot i read and i have been getting more books on audible so i can take more books with me when i got out
Really struggled to finish this. I've enjoyed a few books by this author and it's rare that I wind up disliking her main character by the middle of the book.
Up Close and Dangerous is not a predictable story, but a well written story of survival, romance and mystery.
Although fiction, it's very believable, as a person never knows what they are capable of until circumstances necessitate a need for strength beyond what's normal, as in this story.
Natalie Ross gave a wonderful performance.
