A Campground Mystery: Book Two
Tumbling waterfalls, white pelicans, and sweet serenity were just a few of the reasons Karly Foster became a park naturalist. But when rumours of an unsolved murder surface and a friend mysteriously disappears, Karly’s world becomes anything but peaceful. Then, as if she needed her tranquility shattered further, her ex-boyfriend, Blake, literally flies back into her life.
Blake Fenton, the owner of Wilderness Bush Adventures, can’t believe it. Was that really Karly Foster he’d just flown to the Aspen Ridge Emergency, suffering from heat stroke? After three years, she has gotten even more beautiful … if that were possible. It quickly becomes apparent, however, that flying sparks between him and his feisty former flame could leave nasty burns. Again.
Then Blake makes a horrifying discovery, and strange and terrifying events begin to unfold. As Blake wrestles with fear for Karly’s safety and confusion over his feelings for her, his wilderness-guide friend, Henry, implores him to seek God for answers. For centuries, God has been revealing Himself to the locals in Henry’s remote community—in a very unusual way.
When Blake and Karly join forces to compete in the No Trace Canoe Race, they find themselves fighting, not just to win, but to stay alive. Because someone has committed murder in the campground, and the killer’s sights have turned on them.
Do Blake and Karly have a future together? Or will this moment, when they have finally found each other again, be the last one they ever share?
