    Twenty years ago Amelia Bennett was kidnapped by a cult leader for nine months. She should have died but managed to survive physically but it took a toll on her emotionally where she eventually wanted to check out of life.

    He’s lost his edge…

    Photojournalist Cache Calder lives to chase a great story. He’s just returned from the Middle East after surviving a suicide bombing that left him injured and grief-stricken. The last thing he wants is to travel to the wilds of Alaska on a “Where Is She Now” Assignment. But when his editor informs him that his subject is former kidnapping victim, Amelia Bennett who jump-started his career twenty years earlier, he packs his bags.

    She lives on the edge…

    Mel Bennett’s carefully maintained control unravels the moment she meets Cache Calder. Attraction flares for the man who seems to really “know” her. No one at the Edge of Reason Lodge is aware she was the young teenager who’d survived one of the most publicized kidnappings in recent history, and she wants it to stay that way. But she starts to question her heart and her sanity when unexplained incidents begin to happen and a deadly threat returns to finish what he’d started so long ago.

    The Edge catches you reels you in and keeps you on the edge of your seat. Tiffinie has done it again! This is a great one to start with if you haven’t read any of Tiffinie’s books.

    This is a book you can sink into and stay awhile. You want to just slip in and hang out with the characters at the lodge. I love everything about it. The characters have issues they are real and things get choppy just like life. The romance is nice and steamy.

    And if you liked Sergei you can spend more time with him in Bearing All…..I just couldn’t resist mentioning it.

    Enjoy and I’m off for another adventure with Tiffinie in Hooked!

    Review by Cindy O:

    Twenty years ago Amelia Bennett was kidnapped by a cult leader for nine months. She should have died but managed to survive physically but it took a toll on her emotionally where she eventually wanted to check out of life.

    Mel Bennett is now part owner of the Edge of Reason Lodge in Alaska. It’s remote and cut off from the real world. Problem is the real world is about to descend on her.

    Cashe Calder made his photojournalist career on taking a picture of a little girl that survived a nightmare. Twenty years later he is struggling with injuries sustained from a suicide bombing that killed two co-workers. He is struggling with depression and what he wants to do with his life when his editor suggests he do a follow up article on Amelia. The two embark on the trek to Alaska under the disguise of vacationers.

    Mel’s sister, who she has been estranged from, suddenly sends a letter that she and her 2 children are coming to stay for the summer with Mel. Nicole is at a crossroads after her divorce and doesn’t have a place to live or a job.

    Mel does her best to keep her tight control over her life and emotions with all the unwanted visitors along with running the Lodge that has a great cast of characters helping her run it. Along with not wanting to deal with her sister and the past history between them she also finds herself attracted to Cashe and suddenly seeing things that have to do with her past abduction.

    The author was very descriptive of the Alaskan scenery and also of all the hazards of living in the wilds. The multiple POV and relationships also provided a well rounded story of survival of tragedies and starting over.
