Have only just started so will update when finished but first impressions are great. I'm only 40 pages in and I'm hooked. Can't wait to finish work to get back to this tale.

Finished this book now, i couldn't put it down.

A really fab read, love story with twists and turns and a decent ending. One of those smiley happy feel good books that leave you on a high the rest of the day.

Would recommend this to all who love to read a nice book with plenty of action, emotion and surprise.

Shal Gregory is bored by the team-building week his father has insisted he attends with some of his staff. He's also shocked when he discovers their four-day hike in New Zealand's bush-country is to be led by a girl. Shal is used to being in control and is sure he'll have to take charge when the girl panics in an emergency.
Jodie Mathieson, with her knowledge and experience of bush-country, thinks Shal is an arrogant, chauvinistic, pompous ass, as well as being a dreaded `townie' with no apprecia...more

First of all I have to say this is a really powerful read. It takes you across New Zealand - deep into bushland and then into the heart of buzzing town life - and if, like me, you live on the opposite side of the world, this makes for a truly fascinating and realistic journey. It most certainly puts NZ on my wish list of places to visit before I die! It also allows us to get to up close and personal with the hero and heroine and start to understand them long before they understand each other.

I love to travel and want to go to New Zealand. Well, after reading Wilderness Liaison. New Zealand has been bumped up on my travel list. Ms. Ashby did such an great job describing the scenery that I want to go camping. And I am not a huge camper. I love that Shal and Jodie do not like each other when they meet and for some time. The tension was so thick. Excellent writing and the story has a good pace and some unexpected developments. I also like that Shal and Jodie had flaws and had to work at...more

I really enjoyed this book! Anne Ashby does an excellent job of developing Shal and Jodie's characters. You knew their traits, which you could see first-hand during their tramp through the bush. The sensual tension between the two of them was well created and you could feel it. I was so frustrated with their relationship because it was very realistic. At times I wanted to hit Jodie over the head and tell her to get a clue and wake up! When the characters seem like "real" people, you know the boo...more

I was lucky enough to be a preliminary reader for this story as it was going through the initial query stage for the publisher.

I was thrilled to be assigned this story as it is set in my home country and I'd heard the writer told a great story. I hadn't been led astray and I fell in love with Shal and Jodie immediately. I got such a kick out of reading about a setting I was so familiar with too - but when combined with such great writing - I was in heaven!

I encourage everyone to read this stor...more
Good to see so many have read this book before me... Yay for kiwi writers! Off to read this one.

Fun read.... Took me way to long given it was a busy week.
