The Colony by Cami Checketts

To protect her sons from the mistakes of her past, Brinlee Trapper escapes to a secluded mountain home. But there are dangers lurking in the mountains she has never encountered. The little family is saved from injury by Jed, a mysterious hunter. Brinlee is drawn to him, but she worries about his involvement with a peaceful commune hidden deep in the mountains behind her property.

Lance, Brinlee’s attentive neighbor, has his own troubled history. Between his obvious attraction to Brinlee and his developing love for her children, Brinlee finds it more than difficult to guard her heart against this tender intrusion.

While Jed offers a life of excitement and freedom, Lance holds the key to the family Brinlee always wanted. When it comes time to choose, she learns that both men have secrets that could shatter her fledgling trust in men and the wrong decision could leave more than her heart exposed to danger.

Praise


“Cami Checketts is a genius! She writes about topics that aren’t widely discussed, in and out of books, and she does such a brilliant job of crafting these things into wonderful stories that touch your heart and remain with you for days afterwards.” 
~Myra, Reviewer, Pieces of Whimsy

My Review: Brinlee Trapper is a single mom of two sweet boys. She's made some mistakes in her life, but she's tried to repent and move on. Now she's living in the mountains, and trying to raise her boys right. One day they go for a hike in their new mountain home, and on the trail they run into a mountain lion eating it's lunch. Unfortunately, the three startle it and it's a life and death race for them. Luckily, there is a man with a gun around, his name is Jed and he saves Brinlee just in the nick of time. Brinlee isn't sure why but something about Jed unsettles her, and she'd like to ask him to leave her alone, but she's far too kind for that. Brinlee is also concerned about her growing feelings for her neighbor, Lance, she's not sure just what about him draws her in, but she's determined not to make the same mistakes in her love life that she's already made. Can Brinlee learn to trust her heart and her feelings before it's too late?

I really enjoyed this book. I was hooked from the very beginning, the mountain lion attack. What a strong, amazing character Brinlee is! I love how she's able to be both mom and dad to her boys, she's willing to put herself into harms way to protect them. I didn't really like something about Jed, so I was personally rooting for Lance while I was reading this book. I thought that the plot was well written, the characters were likable and the ending was satisfying. You don't want to miss this great new book by Cami Checketts!

I was sent a free e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
