Pat's Review: The Outpost

The Outpost by Devney Perry
Publisher: Devney Perry (November 7, 2017)
Series: Jamison Valley, 4
Genre: Romantic Suspense

Trapped in his tiny mountain cabin, she didn't expect to fall for his big heart.

Exposing a prominent criminal family with an investigative news report didn’t exactly work out the way Sabrina had hoped. Instead of basking in the glory of her article’s success, she’s on the run from a powerful man who wants her dead. To stay safe, she’s forced to trade one bad situation for another. Stuck in the Montana wilderness, she’s secluded from anything resembling civilization or the modern-day world. The only good thing about her situation is the gorgeous mountain man assigned to protect her. Too bad he isn’t the slightest bit interested in a city girl like her.

Beau likes his life quiet and simple. Give him a peaceful day hiking in the woods with his dog, and he’s a happy man. He has no use for large crowds, noisy cities or dramatic women. So when a hotshot reporter rolls into town, dragging her big-time problems with her, he should have run for the hills. Instead, he volunteered to keep her safe. Bringing her into his world won’t be easy, but if he can convince her that Montana isn’t as terrifying as she believes, they might just be the perfect match.

Pat's Review:

Suspense, danger, and fear are the backdrop of this sexy romance set in both Seattle and the mountains of Montana. Sabrina McKenzie is an investigative journalist working undercover with a goal of proving that a very prominent Seattle family is deeply involved in the Russian Mafia. She was dating a member of the family and an incident left her wide open for discovery. Before she had time to make plans the guy showed up and beat her within an inch of her life. She finally mustered the strength to get away and headed to Prescott, Montana and her best friend Felicity. She knew she would be safe there. She reported her findings to the FBI, hoping the family would soon be arrested. She knew she was putting so many people in danger, but she didn’t know what else to do.

Keeping it as secret as possible, Felicity and family arranged for her to head to a deserted outpost with a trusted friend of theirs, Beau Holt. He was in charge of the local US Forest Service and Search and Rescue. Sabrina’s response: "I’m not going to disappear into the wilderness with a strange man.” But he was a very attractive strange man! She has no choice. Her first horror after getting to the cabin was having to use an outhouse for a day or so, but waking in the morning and seeing Beau chopping wood, shirtless, made up for that. Little by little Sabrina learns to settle in and actually enjoy her escape. She starts writing, her first attempt at writing something not work related,and it's a romance novel. She also looks forward to Beau’s visits, as he brings supplies and news and a growing feeling of love. What will happen when she needs to return to the reality of her life?

It’s so great to catch up with all the characters in Prescott, and its beautiful surroundings. Beau and Sabrina are meant to be together, but they have a few roadblocks to their HEA. I hated for this book to end. In fact, in writing this review I actually did a re-read. This is the fourth book in the Jameson Valley Series, and I highly recommend every one. The next is Bitterroot Inn, so looking forward to that!
