Overview

Down River by Karen Harper

Attending a corporate retreat at a remote resort in Alaska, Lisa Vaughn is plunged into the frigid rapids of the Wild River. Swept away, battered and alone, she has been left for dead.

Lodge owner Mitch Braxton knows something is terribly wrong when Lisa fails to turn up for a private meeting to clear the air and close the book on their broken engagement. Embarking on a heroic search that takes him miles downriver, he saves Lisa from the deadly water, but not before they've been swept deep into the wilderness.

Far from civilization, the former lovers must put aside their hurt feelings and find the will to survive against nature. There's a killer on the loose and, for now, they must measure their future together in days rather than years.

The teambuilding event planned by Carlisle, Bonner & Associates at the Duck Lake Lodge near Bear Bones, Alaska could prove divisive as managing partner Graham Bonner will use the off site to choose the next senior partner. One of the three attorneys in the running for a senior slot is Lisa Vaughn, who feels strongly this is not a good way to select. She also has bigger personal issues with the location chosen by top management that overlooks the Wild River where her mom and baby sister drowned twenty-six years ago and the lodge is owned by Mitch Baxter, her former fiancé who dropped her last year when he relocated from Fort Lauderdale. Lisa falls into the Wild River with its strong rapids. Mitch knows something is wrong and follows her by kayak until he jumps in to complete the rescue. The powerful current had carried the pair several miles from his lodge, but they survive the water. As they struggle with the ordeal of getting back to the lodge, Lisa believes someone deliberately nudged her into the icy water. Though Mitch initially leans towards her accidentally tripping; he soon believes his Lisa is in peril from an unknown adversary who will try anything to kill her, but neither know why. Down River is an exhilarating romantic suspense thriller as the audience wonders along with the heroine why this location and who wants her dead. Faster than the raging Wild River and yet filled with vivid descriptions of the Talkeetna Mountains, readers will feel transported to the home of Sarah Palin. Karen Harper provides a powerful who is doing it and why that sub-genre fans appreciate. Harriet Klausner

This was the first time I had read a book by this author. I probably won't pick up any others. Could have been a good story - but .... this author goes into elaborate detail on what the characters are doing, wearing, etc. Story had good plot - I read to last page - just thought Karen could have left out about 50 too descriptive pages. Makes the story line very tedious when you have an author who doesn't stay on the main point - short and simple! We don't care if any character is drumming her fingers, crossing her legs, what she was wearing - just get to the darn point. I would recommend this book only after warning another reader that it is tiresome with the repetitive descriptions. So, bottom line, I did not put her on a list to pursue future books. Very disappointed in her writing style - could have been a good story line with another author.

I read this authors book Deep Down and was expecting this book to be just as good. It wasn't. The beginning was excellent. The middle dragged on too much and the end was typically predictable. Not a bad read but if you want edge of your seat reading this is not for you.

First book read by Karen Harper, but won't be the last... It was an exciting story and hard to put down. Her description of Alaska was very realistic, and facts used were interesting.

This book starts off with a bang and keeps you on the edge of your seat. It is a thrilling ride that you won't want to put down. I found the characters very likable and you become involved with them from the first page. They are well developed and thought out and you feel like you really know these people. The storyline is very exciting. It keeps you guessing up to almost the very end. I have read a few of Karen Harper's books in the past, but this one has definitely made me a fan. It was a very satisfying read and I can't wait for her next book.
