Searching for Lilly is the exciting first book in New York Times bestselling author Susan Stoker’s Eagle Point Search and Rescue Series.
The most dangerous predator on the mountain may not be the legendary Sasquatch.
Ethan “Chaos” Watson never expected to use his skills as a former Navy SEAL and current search and rescue expert to track down Bigfoot. But when a paranormal investigator goes missing while filming in the mountains near Fallport, Virginia, Ethan and his team are called in to find the man. A task made harder when they’re trailed by a camera crew.
Camerawoman Lilly Ray was already reaching the end of her rope on the hokey, ridiculous paranormal shoot. Now the producer has ordered her to stick to the SAR team to get their every move on video. Admittedly not a hardship; she noticed Ethan her first day in town, and the more time they spend together, the more attracted she becomes. When the search stretches on for days, then weeks, it seems clear her co-worker didn’t just wander off trail, getting lost in the woods. Foul play is evident, and soon, everyone on the cast and crew is suspect.
As the team steps up their search, someone is equally determined to use the disappearance to their advantage. Then Lilly herself goes missing, and Ethan and his team will turn over every rock and leaf in the Appalachians to locate her…before it’s too late.
He wasn’t looking for love, but it found him anyway—and he’s not letting anyone take away the woman who’s become his whole world.
** Searching for Lilly is the first book in the Eagle Point Search & Rescue Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.
For the first book in this new series it was good. The story moved a little slow for me and their isn’t a major suspense happening until way into the story. But, the chemistry between Ethan and Lilly works perfectly. The Bigfoot storyline was fun and interesting and the suspense was intriguing. All in all it was worth the read. Looking forward to the next story in the series.
A Great Beginning
Lilly Ray is an excellent camera person stuck filming a really awful “reality” show about paranormal investigations. When they go “searching for Big Foot” in Fall Port Virginia, she finds herself liking the town as it reminds her of home. What she likes even better is the SAR team member Ethan Watson.
Ethan and his team are not happy about the filming going on, especially the director and his aggressive attitude about ratings above all else, including the safety of his cast and crew—very shady indeed. But he catches the camera woman’s expression during the production’s press conference and it intrigues him.
A narcissistic director who’s willing to outright lie to get ratings, a tragedy, and a former SEAL with and ever expanding interest in the feisty camera woman who sets herself apart from her group with her integrity and kindness make for a real, sizzling page turner. Can’t wait for the rest of the series!
Great start to new series.
I love Susan Stoker’s books and this series as well. Ethan and his team are a great group of heroes. Lilly was truly unexpected in her upbringing and total self sufficiency. This play well into the relationship between Ethan and Lilly. I am already looking forward to the next book in the series.
