Poor Hunter is being dragged off to Wyoming to live after her mother loses her job and, before they even get there, odd things happen including a woman dashing across the road in front of them. This is a prelude to other strange events but Hunter at least soon finds that living in the middle of nowhere might not be so bad, especially after she meets a hottie named Logan and lands a job with the local veterinarian. A chance encounter with a Native American named Gus intrigues her while also creeping her out a bit until her grandfather reassures her that Gus is a good guy.Religion plays a big part in the storyline, portrayed in both a natural, comforting manner and also as a tool for those who distort and use people's faith for their own purposes. It's all part of the mystery surrounding Hunter's dad's death many years earlier but Hunter and her mom find the town to be as welcoming as they could wish.If you're looking for a light mystery to while away a few hours, Hunter is not a bad choice. There are some stumbling blocks---Hunter fits into her new school with nary a hiccup which is pretty unrealistic in a high school environment, it was way too easy to spot the bad guy and the writing was a bit stilted---but, on the whole, I enjoyed the story.Reviewed by Lelia Taylor, July 2015.
Hunter, this girl had a lot going on, I enjoyed going through the love scenes, I enjoyed all the twists and turns, I liked how the end came together to the beginning, a mystery was solved, and friends were reunited. Hunter had to endure a couple of accidents and a kidnapping to uncover the truth about her father, and Monica finally got up the nerve to tell the truth about the past. This book was a nice read.
Hunter and her mother move to Wyoming to her Grandfather's ranch after her mother loses her job. Hunter is not excited about the change but has no choice really. When she sees a help wanted sign in the window of the Veterinarian office, she is excited at the chance to work with animals. There is also the attractive boy Logan that she keeps running into as well as a few new friends from school that help make the transition easier for Hunter. Unfortunately, it seems like Hunter is having her fair share of bad luck and accidents, which feels like it may be on purpose.I am like the government in the respect that I like church and state (aka the books I read) to be separate from each other. I personally always try to avoid reading a fiction novel with religious themes or undertones for a lot of reasons that I won't get into. Well, color me shocked when I started reading this book to discover that it is not a teen paranormal story, but instead a book about good people doing the right things with God on their side will facing off against a corrupt man and his cult. Err, yeah. The only paranormal present was The Holy Ghost, if you get my drift. That being said, the book was not bad in any way and was well written with consistent characters, but it was in no way for me nor would I have read it if I had known how strongly religious it was. I think the perfect audience for the book would be young teen girls or older teens who like religious fiction.The book also had hints of Native American culture which I absolutely love. There were symbols, visions and dreams and I ate them up, but they were just a teaser because none of the concepts were fully developed. I thought Gus had the potential to be a big character and maybe fight some evil of his own, but his role was under played in the story.The book wrapped up the plot and even had an epilogue so I am very certain that it is a stand-alone title which is nice in a world of trilogies. There were a few things that I personally could have used more information on, but the book had enough to go on. Overall this was a very sweet book (if a tad unrealistic-especially the treatment at the hands of the cult) with a simple romance (no angst here) that I could see a younger audience really enjoying.I received this title through YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for my honest review.For more reviews visit my blog http://smadasbooksmack.blogspot.com/
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books.*I received a copy of this book from YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for a fair and honest review.*This book was quite a surprise. I wasn’t sure if it was going to be something I enjoyed, liked, or loathed when I read the blurb. It was one of those books that was on the line. I am SO glad that I read it and I had absolutely no problem getting sucked in right away. I read it between a few sittings, when my kids would cooperate with me as it was one of those books you just have to know what’s going to happen.I can’t say that this is an “action packed” book but it is full of suspense. I was guessing from nearly the beginning of the book to nearly the end of the book. None of my guess were right nor were they even close. This book will keep you on the edge of your seat though needing to know what was going to happen and needing answers to questions that arose as I was reading.This book has a “sweet” romance between two teenagers. It just so happens that they are best friends and are almost partners in crime. Logan and Hunter befriend each other during Hunter’s first days in down. Little did she know that Logan was going to be the source of her learning the pieces of information she does. I enjoyed reading their “romance” between each other went no further then kissing and they still managed to have a good time when they spent time together. I appreciate in this book that their relationship wasn’t based around them wanting to have sex with each other.I laughed while reading and I sighed while reading. I might have grumbled a little bit while I was reading certain scenes. This is a book where emotions are plenty and are well placed. They feel true and not forced. Description and detail are definitely not lacking in this book. The scenery was described so well and sounded beautiful. There were a few places that I would love to make my relaxation areas. There was a little left to your own mind to figure out which is always enjoyable. It’s nice to have an idea what the characters look like but have their descriptions lack just enough to make each one fit your mind!This was a great story and I definitely recommend reading it! You won’t be disappointed!
This was a nice read. There is a great sweet camaraderie between Hunter and Logan that is built through time and friendship. There are some wonderful twists and turns and the storyline sucks you in. Their adventures together make you laugh and smile as you really get to know their personalities through their actions and reactions to each other and what is going on around them.The romance that occurs between Logan and Hunter is sweet and slow building. These two begin as friends and sort of partners in crime and slowly discover their feelings for one another. What sets this romance apart from others in this genre is that this is a clean romance. By doing this we are seen a beautiful deep connection and intimacy but also that a book romance can grab your attention without involving scenes with sex. The characters draw you in and are wonderful to read about and see their views of things. The descriptive scenery keeps you in the here and now and helps you understand the characters and their thoughts. A wonderful sweet clean romance of friends who become more and are there for each other through lifes challenges as teens.
Hunter introduces us to Hunter, a girl who tragically lost her father under what become increasingly suspicious circumstances, and her new life in small town Wyoming. The plot was fun with mystery and a little romance thrown in to keep the plot going. However, I felt that the plot was predictable. Once some characters were introduced, I knew their purpose in the plot. Creepy characters remained creepy and mysterious ones offered convoluted but accurate advice.Read the rest of my review at BibliobibuliYA.com
