Wilderness by B. E. Jones - Blog Tour Review

It's easy to die out there. It's easy to kill too.

Two weeks, 1,500 miles, three opportunities for her husband to save his own life.
It isn't about his survival - it's about hers.
Shattered by the discovery of her husband's affair, Liv knows they need to leave the chaos of New York to try to save their marriage. Maybe the roadtrip that they'd always planned, exploring America's national parks, just the two of them, would help heal the wounds.
But what Liv hasn't told her husband is that she has set him three challenges. Three opportunities to prove he's really sorry and worthy of her forgiveness.
If he fails? Well, it's dangerous out there. There are so many ways to die in the wilderness. And if it's easy to die, then it's easy to kill too.
If their marriage can't survive, he can't either.

My Review

I really enjoyed reading Wilderness. I always love discovering new authors I haven't read before. Beverley Jones has a great writing style and I was drew into the story straight away. She set the scene perfectly and in such an engrossing way, that I just knew I was going to love it. 

The hatred Liv feels for her husband and the woman she cheated with oozes from the pages. The descriptions of how she feels are so well written and I am sure many women who have been cheated on experience a lot of similar feelings at times (maybe not quite as extreme, but in some ways). Although I could sympathise with Liv, I didn't necessarily like her that much.

But she gives him a chance, well three, he is being tested, he just doesn't know it. How is he supposed to pass these tests if he has no idea what they are? I loved the idea of this. A wronged woman who takes matters into her own hands, in an extreme and hate-fuelled way. 

Wilderness is a tense and suspense laden novel with a unique premise. I am looking forward to reading more from this excellent author. I was gripped from the start and throughout and would highly recommend it.
