Grand Teton, Wyoming

Thick fog enveloped her, fading the brilliant green needles of the nearby spruce to a nondescript grey.  Becki adjusted her grasp on the climbing rope, reset her feet.  

My Thoughts:  Good beginning for an action book

I'm using the same book for my Friday 56: 
High Risk (An Adrenaline Novel) by Vivian Arend

She closed her eyes and stiffened, trembling shaking her limbs.  Marcus loosened his grip, instead stepping in closer to catch hold of her neck and pull her tight against his body.

My Thoughts:  This could be the beginnings of a very interesting scene!

LIFELINE: an elite search-and-rescue squad based out of Banff, Alberta. Specializing in high-risk rescue missions, this team goes wherever the job takes them…
Rebecca James was once revered for her devil-may-care attitude and backcountry survival skills. But ever since she lost her partner in a fatal accident, patches of her memory have been missing. And until she can recall those final, tragic moments before the accident, she can’t move on.

Since Marcus Landers was permanently injured during a mission, all his energies have been focused on his Lifeline team. When Becki—whom he had an intense affair with seven years ago—arrives in Banff, he’s inspired to reignite the spark they once had. Their mutual ardor slowly awakens Becki’s dormant, haunting memories.

New truths surface until Becki must at last confront her greatest fear. Remembering the past might mean a future without the man she loves…

Please play along and if you decide to follow my blog, let me know and I'll return the favor.
