Erik decides geocaching is the best way to heal himself after work and personal problems overwhelm him, but the trip goes horribly wrong. Falling down the side of a mountain deters Erik’s plans for a quick cache find, but his rescuer is the one person who may be able to save Erik in more ways than he can imagine.
This was a nice story, if a bit depressing at times. Erik’s life has turned to crap, finding out his lover was married and is now his boss just seems to get worse. He doesn’t know where to turn for help, so he decides to spend some time alone with his thoughts. Turns out it brings him to the steps of a friend and colleague, Jonah.
This story is told from Erik’s point of view and he is wallowing in self pity. He hasn’t had anyone to turn to since he found out about Jerry’s lying. Erik feels that he has to keep Jonah at arms length even when he is helping him recover. When Jonah finally tells Erik all he had done to try and win Erik over without flat out saying anything, he is speechless. I just wish we could have seen these two when they are together in the future.
Michael Pauley did a good job narrating this story. I could connect with the characters through the voices and emotions he portrayed. Even though this is a book I have read it gave me a new connection to the story listening to him.
Cover art is nice and catches your eye.
