Publisher's Summary

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.

Townies vs rangers

If you could sum up River Rats in three words, what would they be?

rangers, rape, romance

What did you like best about this story?

More to the story than just a romance.

Have you listened to any of Hollie Jackson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No idea. She did a great job with this one. Loved the accents.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I probably chuckled a time or two and also teared up now and then.

A nice quick listen

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.
