Britt98Grand Prairie, TXAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Intense!October 18, 2016Britt98Grand Prairie, TXAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Targeted for Murder was truly action packed from the very first page! The author dropped the reader right into the danger at the beginning and kept the main characters running for their lives time and again throughout the book.
Hadley faced challenges that she never imagined would be part of her life. I liked that although she had some self-defense skills, she really did not understand how to survive on her own, or outwit the men who were trying to kill her. She also had some understandable trust issues.
Cooper was an interesting character. He definitely knew how to survive in the wild, had excellent fighting skills, and experience from military service. However, the guilt he carried caused him no small amount of trouble as he tried to look forward and anticipate what needed to be done to help Hadley survive.
This was an exciting story and a great kick off to a new series.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
SuzieNashville, TNAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A Wild RideOctober 13, 2016SuzieNashville, TNAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The first book in Elizabeth Goddards Wilderness, Inc. series left me on the edge of my seat and biting my nails. Just when I thought I could take a breath, the action and suspense kicked right back in at full forces. No easing into anything in this story.
When Hadley Mason learns her father lied to her and her life is now in danger, she does the first thing that comes to her mind. She runs. While danger is on her heels, she comes across the path of Cooper Wilde, a wilderness expert in Oregons Rogue River Wilderness.
As Hadley and Cooper fight for their lives, they also fight to come to terms with the doubts that plague them. Can Hadley trust anyone again knowing her father, the person she trusted the most, lied to her? Will Cooper escape the grasp of the perceived mistakes of his past to embrace the possibility of a full and rewarding future?
Goddard captures both the beauty and the danger of the Oregon Coast terrain beautifully. Its been twenty-plus years since Ive visited but I could see the cliffs, hear the ocean, and feel the danger as I embarked on this wild ride with Hadley and Cooper. Target for Murder is an exciting, enjoyable thrill ride full of twists and turns, and Im already looking forward to the next book!!
ValriVernonia, ORAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Buckle Up!!!!October 11, 2016ValriVernonia, ORAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Buckle up and hang on because this book takes you on a wild ride from the get go! From the first page to the last, you are on the run with the main characters! This is, most definitely, a great suspense book from Elizabeth Goddard! I'm so excited about this new series and already, can't wait for the next book. Hadley Mason's life is fairly routine until one day she opens her apartment door and there is her father, dying from a gunshot wound in her dining room! He suddenly tells her he's really a CIA agent (oops, he's been hiding this from her all her life!) and someone has put a contract out on him AND Hadley! Try to wrap your head around that! I sure couldn't! Of course Hadley wants to save her father but he knows he's going to die and he just wants her to be safe so with his dying breath he tells her how that's going to happen! I can't even comprehend how tough that would be! In an instant, your life is completely shattered. She goes on the run, of course, and assassins are chasing her. What would you do? I found myself asking this question through the whole book. Fortunately, Hadley runs across a wilderness survival guy named Cooper and together, they evade the assassins. This book is a whole lotta fun to read and will keep you on the edge of your seat. I loved Cooper and his back story (aka, family) was fantastic! He's a great guy! You need to read this book!
SusanPMichiganAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Action packed suspense!October 11, 2016SusanPMichiganAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Goodness gracious I was a nervous wreck while reading this wondering who was after Hadley! I loved the non-stop action and danger that puts you at the edge of your seat. There is no putting this book down. Once you start that first page you are in for a ride! Hadley has the shock of her life and now cant be in one place for a second unless she wants to end up 6 feet under. Cooper is the perfect wilderness expert who stumbles upon Hadley.
Ms. Goddard writes with such engaging attention to detail that it feels like you are in a movie. (Think Bourne series heart thumping suspense) She leaves you knowing there is danger coming but no clue as to what or when it will be. I loved the characters written with flaws that endear you to them. The romance was sweet and not overdone in this story it was believable and swoon worthy when it happened! This author is now on my must read list. I highly recommend for a nail biting exciting read!
Debbie WilderSalinas, CAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5A heart pounding suspense novel!October 10, 2016Debbie WilderSalinas, CAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Hadleys world was turned upside down from the very beginning and I wanted to see her get out of trouble and find safety. No one should have to deal with the things she was facing. I think that it would have been nice if there were a little more information about Hadley and how her father could have kept such a huge secret from her.
Cooper has more of a background developed and slowly presented than Hadley does. Because of that I was pulling for him to work through his personal issues and move on with his life.
The danger and action scenes were great. There was plenty of detail and excitement that kept me turning the pages.
