THAT RECKLESS NIGHT
THAT RECKLESS NIGHT (4.5) by Kimberly Van Meter: After an incredible one-night stand with a man who turns out to be her new boss, Alaska wildlife worker Miranda Sinclair isn’t sure she can work with Jeremiah Burke. But Jeremiah understands Miranda’s feelings of guilt over her sister’s death better than anyone. He moved to Alaska to escape the painful memories of his young son’s death in an ATV accident. The two bond over their determination to escape their pasts and work together to catch poachers who’ve been illegally killing bears. Van Meter’s dialogue is excellent, especially when Miranda picks up Jeremiah in the bar, and she nicely depicts Miranda’s guilt. Her secondary characters are also well-drawn, as are her descriptions of the Alaskan wilderness. That Reckless Night is a must-read.
