Athletic career woman meets good-ole-boy for a five-day backpacking trek in the rugged North Carolina mountains. Appalachian born Wes triggers Suzanne's resentment and her desire amongst boars, bears and Girl Scouts. Suzanne's pack and old hurts lighten as Wes' easy charm helps her truly see the hope and allure of the spring flowers, love and forgiveness.

This novel is set outside of Boone, North Carolina, home of Appalachian State University.

Rob Newfeld of the Asheville Citizen-Times says, "Romance that gets off to a good start and maintains an exciting tension that manages to carry to the end...A good part of Bishop's success is the set-up she's engineered."

Wish you could spend days trekking over pristine North Carolina mountains? Put your feet up, instead, and follow this pair on their Appalachian climb with camp-out nights, bear sightings, and love-making under the stars.
