I had an opportunity to read this book prior to publication.
Purchase has done it again. Brought us another riveting love story laced with danger and intrigue. This time the setting is the wilds of the Baja Peninsula. The author creates a vivid picture for us of the terrain and climate with its own danger from bad roads, cows on the highway, the desert itself, and bandidos.
Sylvia, running from her husband and a life threatening letter, finds peace and solace fleeting in the campgrounds of the Baja. First a drunk man tries to molest her. Then she loses her passport and wallet. Then she finds Kevin. He too is on the run. The two fall in love/lust or perhaps it’s the other way round.
As their relationship grows greater dangers emerge. First from the secrets they keep from each other and then from their spouses who are in hot pursuit.
Purchase knows how to paint a glorious picture of the setting and hold us spell-bound by the action. A great read
