My Comments

Rick realizes the moment trouble arrives for him and Shay and just as he’s trying to turn back and bring Shay to safety they are run off the road and left for dead. Will Rick be able to protect Shay or will his presence put them in more danger?

Wilderness Peril by Elizabeth Goddard
Wilderness Peril is an awesome book. Shay Ridiker and Rick Savage have been coworkers for the last two years, employed by Deep Horizon Recovery Services. For Shay a airplane mechanic, her job is safe and routine. Ex-Marine Rick is a recovery agent along with his brother Aiden. Rick and Shay travel to Alaska to repair an airplane so that Aiden can seize it. When a routine recovery turns into a frantic search for Aiden, Rick and Shay’s world is turned upside d

If you are looking for a suspense-filled, wild ride…look no further! Wilderness Peril delivers action and adventure, danger and the hope that love could possibly heal two damaged individuals.

Set in Alaska, Shay Ridiker and Rick Savage embark on what should be a straightforward task: meet up with Rick’s brother and fix an airplane. However, what should be an uncomplicated assignment takes a dangerous turn when Shay and Rick find themselves trying to escape Alaska with their lives. Rick and Shay w

Past horrifying situations stay within everyone!!! In this story both the main characters
have to face prior horrible personal experiences, problem solve the current situation and
learn to support and trust each other simultaneously in order to survive.
Stranded in the Alaskan wilderness facing death at any time, their adventure moves along
quickly with action at every turn. The main plot has unexpected twists and turns with subplots weaved through out.

Intense action and deep-set passions set Wilderness Peril at the top of my list of favorites!

Elizabeth Goddard weaves a gripping plot that begins in the first paragraph and doesn't release until the final pages of the book. The plan seems simple enough for airplane mechanic, Shay Ridiker; fix a broken plane that her company needs to repossess and let the pilot fly it back to the base. Except that the plane is in a remote part of Alaska. And the owner isn't quite ready to let go of his only means

Wilderness Peril is the second book I've read by Elizabeth Goddard and another good read. I liked how the book was set in Alaska (that's one of my favorite locations for novels!) and thought the story was enjoyable.

I liked the characters and how both Rick and Shay weren't perfect and had issues. I didn't care all that much for the romance aspect, just because it felt a li

WILDERNESS PERIL is an exciting story of adventure, suspense and romance! The plot twists and turns and sweeps you away to the frozen wilderness of Alaska. Don’t miss this great escape!

The action starts in the first chapter and doesn’t stop until the very end. Shay Ridiker is an airplane mechanic who has been dispatched to Alaska, along with pilot Rick Savage. These two co-workers are expecting a routine repair and repo, but soon find themselves running for their lives. Shay and Rick struggle to

This was an awesome book, I love Elizabeth's work. A story of faith even in dire circumstances. The characters were great, not really what you would expect, but great.

Shay Ridiker is an airplane mechanic for Deep Horizon Recovery Services. She's a tough little woman that likes to be in the background, not wanting any of the men to see through her facade. She agrees to accompany pilot Rick Savage to Alaska to help Rick's brother Aiden with a repossession of a small plane. She brought tools and th

They expect help on the job from Rick's brother, Aiden, but are surprised and worried when he fails to meet them. And then the adventure begins.

Wilderness Peril is awesome! It is full of suspense, danger, and twists and turns with romance thrown in. This book is hard to put down once you start reading. It takes place in the wilderness of Alaska. I love the fact that even in the midst of danger, they seek the Lord’s wisdom and pray. This is a book that I will want to read again.

I received a complimentary copy of Wilderness Peril from the author in exchange for my honest review, which I have given.

More close to . I have been reading these "love inspired suspense novels" for many years now, and this is the worst one so far. I need to make a disclaimer - the book is set in Alaska and I have lived here 38 years+. Ms. Goddard's bio, both in the book and on her website, does not mention Alaska, and, though I may be wrong, she writes as one who has never been here. The geography she describes for the setting makes very little sense. It would be a LITTLE better is the novel was set on the Arctic ...more

I could not get interested in this book. There were too many pages repeating each characters feelings and past experiences (especially Rick's). I got the point after the first time. Each time after that, I would get disgusted and put the book down for a day or two. When I would pick it back up, I couldn't get more than a couple of pages before once again being subjected to their inner dilemma. The storyline was not believable or relatable. I forced myself to read to the end, but found that it wa ...more

Rick battles PTSD from his time as a soldier and Shay fights off debilitating panic attacks, so each has personal battles they are fighting while struggling to make ...more

"I've known you for two years...Tried to stop thinking about you for two years. From the first moment I saw you, I had a feeling..."

Not sure if I should be happy or confused. It's kind of a whirlwind, under high stress romance that I can't quite get behind...but on the other hand, they have worked together for years... 2.5 stars? 2? I don't really know. I've definitely read better. But I have definitely read far worse.

Hey everyone! As I am sure many of you know, I love a good mystery. One that makes you scratch your head and wonder how it will play out, and keep you turning the pages until the end! Well, Wilderness Peril is exactly that type of book. And Elizabeth Goddard sure know how to keep readers enthralled until the end. I didn't put it down from the first page to the last:)

Another great book by Elizabeth Goddard. This book continues with characters from her previous Love Inspired Suspense characters. This time we have Rick who is a war veteran, his brother Aiden, and Shay. All three work for the plane repossession company that we read about in the previous stories. Aiden goes to Alaska to repossess a plane only to find that it has mechanical problems, so Shay, the mechanic goes to repair it. Rick goes along to keep an eye on her and keep her protected, which turns ...more

This was a quick, easy to follow and mostly entertaining read. It took me about 3 hours to read this book.
The plotline in this book was a little too shallow and predictable for my tastes. The character development was surprisingly good for the length of the story however I would've liked a little more back story or possibly some history between our two leads. The romance felt a little bit unrealistic just because I feel that it was the stress and dire situation that helped the romance along, I
