Wilderness, Inc. #2

Surviving the wilderness of Oregon takes training....
and trust. 

Undercover Protector (Wilderness, Inc.) 

Undercover at a tiger sanctuary, Special Agent Grayson Wilde’s convinced the owner must be involved in a wildlife trafficking ring—until someone tries to kill her. Now with Gemma Rollins’s life on the line, it’s clear that more than the wildcats need his help. Gemma’s determined to rebuild the tiger oasis she lost when her family died. But someone wants her out of the way, and she’s starting to wonder if her parents' and uncle’s deaths were really accidental. Grayson says he’ll do anything to protect Gemma, but she can't shake the feeling that her alluring new volunteer might not be all that he seems. With a vicious criminal closing in, though, she has to trust Grayson…because she won’t survive without him.

My Opinion:

I have been reading books by Elizabeth Goddard for years.  I love her detailed ability to weave words together that bring both setting and characters to life for me.  
This book is the second installment in the new Wilderness, Inc. series which is set in southwest Oregon surrounding the Rogue River.  The place literally explodes to life on the pages with the wonderful use of imagery.  
She introduces us to USFW Special Agen5t Grayson Wilde and Gemma Rollins.  This plot is fast paced and flows effortlessly.  This story deals with the tough issue of wildlife trafficking. Grayson is going undercover at Tiger Mountain to investigate the latest rumors of wildlife trafficking and to find the person who murdered a fellow agent.  Gemma is the founder of the tiger refugee and has been dealing with problems of sabotage at her sanctuary.   
As the story opens Gray rescues Gemma just before her Jeep is swept down the mountain side.  After a less than desirable meeting Gemma hires Gray as a volunteer at the santuary, but the answers Gray is looking for appear to be just out of reach.  The deeper he digs the more involved he becomes in Gemma's life and starts to suspect that her life is possibly in danger.  Suddenly answers are not as important as protecting her life. 
This is a wonderful adventure and kept me turning the pages until the end.  The plot is very intriguing and kept me guessing until the end.  This is the second book in the series, but for me this is also a stand alone story and one I would recommend to anyone who loves suspense.  
 I received this book from the author via the publisher.  All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
