Death Wish by Cherime MacFarlane is an easy ride. I enjoyed the authors ability to transport you to a different place. The Alaskan landscape added to the allure. Instantly, I was taken in. The intriguing storyline kept my interest. Made me compelled to read more. It's an emotional story that kept me glued to the pages.

This is a story one of adversity and also forgiveness and redemption. It's also a beautiful love story filled with lustful moments and an adventurous road trip into the unknown.

**I received a copy of the book from the author in exchange for my honest review.**

I have to say, I wasn't sure what to expect from Death Wish, having never read a book from Cherime MacFarlane before. This will not be my last book of hers. Maria and Colin are fascinating characters with so much depth and yet they are so easy to connect with as a reader. I found myself having "the feels" more than once in this book. The emotion seeps through the pages and just made me want to keep on reading. The

This was my first time reading Ms. MacFarlane and I'm glad I got the chance. She writes with a detailed gusto that makes it so you can't help but get pulled into the story and the outcome of the characters.

Death Wish opens with two people who are handling the loss of the same man in different ways. Colin was Paul's best friend; Maria Elena, Paul's wife. The twist is that Colin has been in love with Maria Elena since the day Paul brought her home, and now he must deal with his friend's dying wis

This was a book to read without interruptions, for once started it was impossible to stop. The characters are so real I was reaching for the Kleenex and the setting is extremely well drawn. I know this as I have driven on the Yellowhead trail. This is a story about love, loss and love again. Colin has always loved Maria, but she was the wife of his best friend and business partner, Paul, who dies. Trying to keep Maria alive through her deep depression and alcohol dependence, Colin takes her on a ...more

The best thing to happen to both Maria and Colin, is them falling in love with each other.
