Publisher's Summary

January is known as the dead season in the small Smoky mountain community of Hanover County, North Carolina. For dog trainer and wilderness expert Raine Stockton, who hasn't had a client in six month, this season has been deader than most. When the New Day Wilderness Program for Troubled Teens offers her a job leading a group of students on a winter camping expedition as part of their rehabilitation program, Raine jumps at the chance - particularly since it means she will be able to take her golden retriever, Cisco, with her. But something is not right at New Day, and Raine and Cisco soon find themselves caught in a web of intrigue, suspicion and sabotage. As the group moves deeper into the wilderness beneath steadily worsening weather, Raine begins to fear she and Cisco may soon find themselves trapped on the mountainside... with a killer.

Donna Postel is Raine, and did a wonderful job as usual. The story had many twists and turns, made me laugh and want to cry. I highly recommend this book!

Author is incredible!

I LOVE this author AND the narrator. This book keeps you in the proverbial edge of your seat, and demonstrates powerful lessons - multiple lessons.

I should have reviewed former titles more thoroughly; but, any reader will know this author is solid!

I am fussy about narrators; I've heard this one before - she is superb. Excellent work.

There is no recommendation high enough to give these two.
