Dancing With the Sun by Kay Brant

Release Date - November 27, 2018



Empty nester Sadie Harlan is at a crossroads. Tragic events have strained her marriage. While her husband heads out on a camping trip, Sadie opts to fly to California to spend a couple of days with her daughter who is at Yosemite for an internship.

The women set off for a quick walk, but a sudden storm catches them by surprise. They wind up lost and unprepared. With no emergency supplies and a cell phone that's dead, Sadie and Lauren must try to find a way to get help and avoid the dangers of the wilderness.

Dancing With the Sun is a fast read. It seemed a little slow at first, but once Sadie and Lauren were out in the forest, the pace was lightning fast. There were times I was frustrated by their choices, but I wasn't in the situation, so who knows how I would have acted in a very stressful situation.

I liked Sadie's instincts when it came to protecting her child, even if Lauren is grown and capable of protecting herself. I loved the descriptions of the area. It's been years since I was in Yosemite, but I do remember snippets of it from my childhood and remember the feeling of awe with the deer and trees.

If you want a quick, suspenseful story, pick Dancing With the Sun. It didn't take long to finish and had me hooked.
