The Road to Paradise (Shadows of the Wilderness) by Karen Barnett (review by Cathy)

The Road to Paradise


About the book:

In 1927, Margie Lane, an avid naturalist, convinces her Senator father to procure her a position at the fledgling Mount Rainier National Park. Since Ranger Ford Brannon lost his father in a climbing accident, he doubts his ability to protect the park and its many visitors. He certainly doesn’t relish the job of watching over an idealistic and privileged young woman with no practical survival skills.

When Margie’s former fiance sets his mind on developing the Paradise Inn and its surroundings into a tourist playground, Margie and Ford will have to work together to preserve the beauty and simplicity of this mountain hideaway, but the developer’s plans might put more than just the park in danger.

My review ( 5-stars):

The cover caught my eye but it was the characters and story that captured my heart.
Set in Mount Ranier National Park where beautiful scenery, adventure and handsome park ranger, Ford await Margie, this book is a delight to read. Margie has much more spunk than I expected her to have which was a pleasant surprise. I love how she embraces each day and faces each new challenge. Ford is the perfect balance for her enthusiasm with his experience and stead fast nature.
I loved how they worked together to thwart her former fiancée from his attempt to ruin nature’s beauty.

The Road to Paradise is a wonderful and fantastic start to the new series and I’m looking forward to going on the next adventure with Karen Barnett.
If you’re looking for that perfect summer read, this is it.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and have given my honest opinion.
