Wilderness, Inc.: 
Surviving the wilderness of Oregon takes training....
and trust. 

No Safe Haven

False Security (Wilderness, Inc #3) 

Arriving at her secluded cabin to find her brother missing, Olivia Kendricks follows his trail into the woods until two shooters take aim at her. She only escapes when ex-detective Zachary Long, her brother's friend and Olivia's first love comes to her rescue. Now as they run for their lives in the snowbound wilderness, they must search for her brother while figuring out why someone wants them dead. And though Zach's police force training may be what will save them, it's also what once drove them apart when he gave Olivia up to chase his dream. In a freezing landscape as deadly as it is beautiful, they'll have to let go of the past and face down powerful men willing to kill to keep secrets buried.

My Review:

This suspenseful series is set in southwest Oregon in the Siskiyou Mountains.  
Elizabeth Goddard masterfully brings the setting alive with vivid imagery. 
The plot is an spine tingling suspense that is full of twists and turns.  
This is the third book in the series, but is easily a stand alone.  I would recommend reading the first two books to get the full impact of the series.  
This story centers around Olivia Kendrick, Rich Kendrick and Zach Long.  
Rich and Zach are best friends.  Rich was engaged to Zach's sister Sarah until she was killed 3 years ago.  Rich was devastated and hired on with a private military contractor in the middle east to put some distance between him and the tragedy.  Olivia was a biology teacher in Portland, but with the death of her mother retreated to the vacation home located outside of Giddeon in the Siskiyou Mountains.  She went to work for Wilderness, Inc. as a guide for the adventure excursion company.  Zach Long was a Portland Police Detective until a year ago when he resigned from the job.  
Rich's unexpected arrival in Giddeon is a surprise to Olivia, but she hopes he will stay for a while so they can work through the past turmoil.  Arriving at home she knows something is wrong and that Rich is in trouble.  Following a blood trail behind the house and into the mountains the very last person she expects is to run into is Zach Long.  Rich called Zach 3 days ago needing help and Zach rushed to the secluded cabin where they had vacationed together.  Unfortunately the heart pounding adventure is about to begin for Olivia and Zach.  
I loved Olivia and Zach.  Olivia is a strong woman who has learned to depend on no one but herself.  She has a gentle heart and a warm personality.  Zach comes from a long line of police officers in the family so he's a natural born protector.  
 This story has many elements of spine tingling supsense, mystery, romance, and faith.
