Debut author, Laurie Wood captured my attention from page one of Northern Deception. The story is packed with suspense and had me flipping pages long into the night. Set in Canada and filled with polar bears, snow, dog sled teams and adventure Northern Deception swept me into an entire world that I knew nothing about. As Kira searches for answers and battles her own fears and brokenness, she finds that the man she ran from is exactly the man she needs now. Single parent, Lukas has a heart of gold and the strength of a quintessential hero. Together, they team up to take down the worst kinds of predators and solve a mystery—but they must first stay alive to do so. I loved Northern Deception and would highly recommend it. Laurie Wood has a lot to offer and I look forward to her next book.
