Peter and June or Tarzan and Jane? Hopefully you’ve read “The Drifter”, Book 1 of this series, so you have an idea of the strengths and weaknesses of the amazingly complex character, Peter Ash. He wanders the “southern end of the Mendocino National Forest”, as he has severe PTSD and claustrophobia, and doesn’t have a job or live in a house. One day a bear 🐻 chases him up a tree a few hundred feet and he meets the fierce investigative reporter June Cassidy......in the tree? Yes! She is running from men who appear to want to kill her. Peter joins her swinging through the redwoods; he has nothing better to do! His protective nature is stimulated by June and her backstory.
This book is almost impossible to put down. The characterizations are wonderful and the complexity of the storyline is brilliant. There is humor and intelligent dialogue. Peter is a hero and June is a strong, smart, and brave woman. I love this series. It is an invigorating, entertaining, and engrossing read!
