In a quirky college town surrounded by the mountains of New Hampshire, new art history professor Jacob Oliver hikes a trail on a crisp September morning. He contemplates his life. Divorced, and forced out of his job with the Boston Police due to a horrific accident, he spots a naked woman beneath a majestic waterfall. Escaping, he falls and re-injures his knee. Destiny Blake heard a noise. Someone is on her mountain. She finds a handsome man sitting in the mud. Love blooms and lust consumes them after she helps him to the safety of her cabin. Soon assumptions tear them apart, leaving her vulnerable to the unwanted attentions of other men. When Jacob decides he cannot live without her, he must save her from a madman who chases her up her mountain through the cold, snowy darkness of a November night. Ghostly voices push Jacob onward, while another spirit’s voice urges Destiny to fight back. Pain, hypothermia, and death threaten as the sun rises. Can Destiny and Jacob make it off Destiny’s Mountain…alive?

I enjoyed this book a lot.  The description really makes the reader feel the chill of a mountain in New Hampshire.  It’s a great book to read by the fireplace.  The suspense was consistent throughout, leading up to a great ending.  I felt the technical details of the paramedics added a bit more than was absolutely necessary for the story, but you could tell the writer knew what she was talking about.  The heat level was just right and the dirty thoughts and actions of the ‘villains’ kept the reader anxious.
