Moving across the country isn’t Hunter’s ideal start to her Junior year of high school. She has no friends to hang out with, no beaches to lounge on, and she’s living just a few miles from the secluded hiking trail where her father died when she was a baby.
Living in Wyoming isn’t all bad, though, thanks to Logan, the handsome veterinary assistant at the animal clinic where she lands an after school job. And he seems just as interested in her as she is in him.
As Hunter begins to settle into her new home, she learns more about the circumstances surrounding her father’s tragic death, and it may not have been the accident everyone believes. The truth lies in the woods bordering her grandfather’s ranch, and Hunter might be the next victim.
Hunter by Renee Donne is about a sixteen year-old girl named Hunter Clark. Hunter’s mom had just lost her job and they are both forced to move back to their hometown – Lander, Wyoming, where they would be staying with Hunter’s grandfather. It is also happens to be the place where Hunter’s father died back when she was just a baby. She could not be less thrilled to be starting her junior year at a new school with new people. However after getting a new job at Happy Hank’s Veterinary clinic where she gets to work with tall, dark, and handsome Logan. Better yet, she actually ends up making some new friends on her very first day. Things are starting to look up for Hunter. That is, until she realizes that some people around town are dangerous, and some aren’t who they say they are.
When I first heard about this book, I had been interested from the start. However, the book did not intrigue me as much as I though it would have. That being said, there were some aspects of the book that I liked. Hunter had been a nice character to follow around when reading; she looked at things with a level head and never gave up hope even when things got tough.
The relationships between the characters were okay, although I would have liked to see more of the different relationships throughout the book. Logan and Hunter’s relationship had been sweet, and I enjoyed their moments together. Hunter’s new-found friendship with Bethany was just like every other friendship, they supported each other and they gave each other advice when the other person needed it.
