The Hiking Trip by Jenny Blackhurst

Do you enjoy camping and hiking? If so, this book may make you think twice about who you camp with. When this book came up for review on Love Book Tours, I knew I had to be on the tour. I enjoy thrillers and this one seemed perfect for me.

About the Book:

When nineteen-year-old Maisie takes off on the trip of a lifetime, leaving behind her demanding family, her only thought is of freedom. 

Hiking the West Coast Trail in Canada, she soon meets Ric and Sera. But what began as a fun-filled adventure quickly turns sour, with devastating consequences…

Twenty-five years later, a woman named Laura is panicked to learn that a body has been found near the trail. The police suspect the remains to be of missing backpacker, Sera.

The secret Laura’s been hiding for a quarter of a century is about to come out – and someone is determined to make sure she tells the truth, and pays the price.

Laura will do anything to protect her family and the life she’s crafted for herself. It’s a race against time and a question of: who has the most to lose?

Book Review:

A dual timeline book 20 years apart tells the story of a hiking trip gone wrong. Maisie’s new friend is murdered on the hiking trip and she is the star witness. The dual timeline feeds in snippets from the hiking trip as Maisie tries to keep her current life from falling apart. I was hooked on this story and could not put it down. This is a great psychological thriller!
