Okay, I can no longer have any doubts. M.K. Schiller is officially a top author for me. This is my third book by her and I absolutely love every one of them. One of the most wonderful things about her writing is the amount of research she seems to do for her stories. With Eight Days in the Sun she writes about a Marine, in The Scars Between Us it’s also a Marine but he also runs a dog rescue. Here we have mountain climbers. I’m not a Marine, a dog rescue worker, an MMA fighter, or a mountain climber, but her writing sure seems to be pretty accurate to me. I appreciate the time she puts into getting her stories as true to life as possible.
The beginning of this story is a meet-cute slow-build romance with a majestic backdrop to really make the characters come off the pages. Once the half-way mark hits, the action starts to pick up. While it takes the chemistry and light flirting between Farah and Tristan to the next level, it also starts adding danger and intrigue to the mix.
As this story moves along there are things the reader can deduce. Some of those thoughts may actually end up being correct. But other things don’t become apparent until the suspense part is already notched up. There are many layers to what is happening in this book but the romance and chemistry never seem to get lost. Instead, the bond between Tristan and Farah gets tighter and tighter.
I really cannot say enough good things about this author. I am thoroughly enamored with her work.
