Great survival romance

When I was (much) younger, I did some backpacking in some very remote areas. So I enjoyed this story a lot. The whole "strangers struggling to survive under terrible conditions and falling in love" plot was great fun. And I feel like she did a good job of it. I really enjoyed seeing the heroine figuring out how to make do with what was on hand in order to survive. And I enjoyed the way the two of them worked together, and I liked the way they verbally sparred with one another.

In short, I liked this book. A lot. Try it. I don't think you'll regret it.

More a survival story than a romance.

What did you love best about Up Close and Dangerous?

The characterization was good. Like many of Linda Howard's novels, it gives you a detailed look at the main characters thought process.

Who was your favorite character and why?

There are really only two characters through most of the book, Cam and Bailey. I liked them both. They came across as very real. Linda Howard has a knack for putting normal people into unusual situations and letting us watch the outcome.

Have you listened to any of Natalie Ross’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to many of her performances and loved them all. I find she has a nice range and I never catch myself cringing at her male/female voices as sometimes happens with other narrators.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I found i had a hard time putting this down. Or turning it off as the case may be. I wanted the drive to last longer so I wouldn't have to pause the book.

Any additional comments?

The romance itself felt rushed. There was a nice twist at the end.
