Guest Review from Donna
What I think you should know:
Pursued in the Wilderness by Loretta Eidson is a Love Inspired Romantic Suspense. It is a contemporary novel set in the Smoky Mountains. It follows K-9 officer Trent Williston and 38 week pregnant Brooke Chandler , who is on the run for her life.
What you might need to know:
This book does discuss the death of an infant and the trauma that it leaves with first responders . It also talks about gambling and addiction.
What I think about this book:
This was a fast paced non-stop adventure from the opening when Brooke flees into the wilderness to save her baby’s life. Trent was a very dynamic character, his trauma from losing the preemie was heartbreaking, but seemed very realistic to me. I was confused at the author talking about altitude sickness. I grew up in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains and have visited the highest peak, without hearing any experiences with altitude sickness, however I guess everything is harder when you are 38 weeks pregnant and when you have a newborn. I loved Rex, but how can you not love a super protective German Shepherd? I loved the descriptions that the author used about the wildlife and surroundings. She did a wonderful job on this story! This was my first time reading a book, but Eidson, but it will not be my last.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Celebrate Lit, this in no way influenced my review. All opinions are my own.

More from Loretta
For as long as I can remember, I’ve been mesmerized by the majesty of the mountains. I love log cabin vacations on the mountain top, sitting in a rocking chair on the front porch, and enjoying my early morning coffee. Low-lying clouds hang over them like a soft blanket and slowly dissipate while birds sing their wake-up songs. The perfect place to reminisce about life and dream about the future. Serene and beautiful.
One would think with my admiration of the mountain range I would accept all the mountains have to offer. Not so. Even though there are many hiking trails, I have ventured out on very few. Animals of the wild frighten me, but none near as much as a bear. I am certain every bear in the forest hides in the tops of trees, waiting for my arrival so they can pounce on me. I know it’s silly, but my apprehension is real.
What could be more suspenseful than to write a novel about Brooke Chandler, thirty-eight weeks pregnant, running for her and her baby’s life through the mountains? She must face her fears of the wild, including bears, if she wants to save her baby from the killers that murdered her husband. To make it worse, she’s in the forest alone in the inky darkness.
Handler Trent Williston and his K-9, Rex, escape the city, away from all pregnant women. He refuses to deliver another baby after a mishap with an emergency delivery while on the job. A camping trip to the mountains with Rex is his go-to for relaxation – until Brooke falls into his camp with three killers on her trail.
I hope you enjoy Trent and Brooke’s story as they face their challenges together.
