No job. Little faith. A paralyzing secret and a life-changing survival show.
On the surface, SIMON FINCUFF and FERN STRONGBOW have nothing in common. Simon has served his sentence, but his past conviction still haunts him. Fern is a veterinarian and grew up on an off-the-grid homestead. The one thing they share? Each has a dark secret they would do almost anything to protect.
When their current careers are yanked away, they are left scrambling to pick up the pieces. A reality television show falls into their paths, offering a life-changing opportunity that tests their resolve and their faith.
These two unlikely partners must battle to survive for thirty days in the untouched wilderness of Rarity Mountain with only a handful of survival items and a director who is out for drama, no matter the cost. With their lives and their carefully guarded skeletons on the line, they will discover how far they are willing to go to win the million-dollar prize for Survival Tennessee.
I would like to thank Sara L. Foust for giving me this copy of the book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.
What Simon and Fern thought was going to be an intense survival adventure turned a bit terrifying as they began to wonder if the TV director might be out for something more than simply an exciting show.
Rarity Mountain was a different type of suspense from the first two in the series. Simon and Fern were cast together to survive in the wilderness for a television show. Their individual motivations for going on the show made perfect sense in the context of the story. Would I have done that in their situations? Are you kidding? I would die in the wilderness like that!!
There were a couple of things that could have been better. In some places, the time frame seemed jumbled. Also, at the beginning of the book, Simon pretty much brushed off God despite knowing about Him (his brother is a pastor). Though we saw a point where he knew he needed prayer because of an accident, all of a sudden nearer the end he appeared to have a strong faith. The switch seemed a bit too abrupt and could have been developed more.
These are minor quibbles, though, and I really enjoyed Rarity Mountain.
