The Last Woman in the Forest
The Last Woman in the Forest | Diane Les Becquets
13 posts | 9 read | 16 to read
The national bestselling author of Breaking Wild delivers a riveting and haunting thriller about a woman who fears that the greatest threat to her survival could be the man she loves... On a conservation study in northern Alberta, field technician Marian Engstrm finds her true calling: training rescue dogs to help track endangered or threatened wildlife. Under the tutelage of experienced handler Tate Mathias, Marian feels her future opening up before her. But after Tate is killed in a bear attack, Marian finds herself questioning the man she thought she loved. Growing inconsistencies start to surface, possibly linking Tate to the murders of four women over six years. Working with a retired forensic profiler who was never able to close the cases, Marian relives her relationship with Tate, desperately hoping to clear his name as a serial killer. And as she circles ever closer to the truth, evil stalks her every move... From the lush and breathtaking Rocky Mountains to the vast deserts of Utah, The Last Woman in the Forest chronicles the experiences of a woman whose faith in the nature of man is about to be tested.

#MOvember #RescueMe I read this one during the year & really liked it. Marian Engtstom is working scientifically in the wild , learning to train #rescue dogs. This is a thriller with a serial killer & it is set in nature - forests, mountains, ( snow ❄️ ) & there are dogs ... everything I love. A great read.

Cinfhen You do like those creepy thrillers!!! I‘m not too much of a fan... I‘m a big scaredy 🙀 2w
Cathythoughts @Cinfhen you did go to see the movie IT 🤡!!! But , yes , I hear you , & yes I do love thrillers ( well - written ones ) 2w
Cinfhen I saw IT and I needed therapy by the time it was over 😳😱 2w

Cathythoughts @Cinfhen I agree , it was fairly full on ! I won‘t go to see the sequel... enough is enough. 2w
TrishB The sequel is nowhere near as scary - there is only one slightly disturbing bit really. More like 80s comedy horror. 2w
batsy Great description! I added it to the TBR after your review :) 2w
Cathythoughts @batsy thanks Suba ❤️👍 2w
Cathythoughts @TrishB oh that‘s good to know. The first one was a bit scary though 😳 2w

I really liked this book, the main characters struggle is one I've always been super curious about and I think the author did a great job showing us her inner turmoil.

I had this one on my TBR shelf forever! So happy to have finally read it! Loved the plot but not the characters, and some of the writing drove me insane (ironic because the author teachers writing 😂). Bottom line: a win-win because my TBR shelf is in slightly less danger of collapsing and I did enjoy the story.

A great sense of place , of nature , of the characters working scientifically in the wild - a thriller/ a serial killer. Really loved this book AND I guessed the ending 😳... maybe it‘s obvious/ or all this Litsy reading must be giving me an edge ( I never guess endings ) this didn‘t take from the book though ( it‘s not over till it‘s over ) I already have her first book in my possession & looking forward to it : Breaking Wild

Cathythoughts I‘d love to know if any one else guessed the ending 👍🏻♥️ 5mo

"It‘s a terrible thing to have loved someone and not know the extent to which you‘d been deceived, and a more terrible thing still to love someone and not know if you‘d ever been loved in return. There is something shameful in that prospect, the kind of shame that can reduce a person to someone she no longer recognizes."

Whoa. I could not stop listening to this thriller. Nicely done & well researched. Those of you—like me—who are outdoorsy or who love dogs will esp. like this. 🎧 mostly read by Emily Rankin & Robert Fass. Really well done: good characterizations & excellent tension/pacing. Put this on your wish list in any media (trigger warning)

valeriegeary I really enjoyed her first one! Have been looking forward to this! 9mo
BethFishReads @valeriegeary hope you like it too 9mo
