    • Abstract:
      Newly widowed Natalie Waters expects only nostalgia and solitude at her quiet, rustic cabin. But the wilderness conceals more than one perilous mystery. Where in Wisconsin's Northwoods did the notorious gangster John Dillinger hide $210,000 following a violent FBI shootout? And why do the local timberwolves incite so much rage among Natalie's neighbors? As predators circle and howl in the dark, Ginger, the bartender at the nearby Star Lake Saloon, draws Natalie deep into the secrets not only of Dillinger but of the ecologies of family, forest, and heart. With the reluctant support of her granddaughter and advice from a handsome wolf biologist, Natalie is forced to choose between adversity and adventure. Sara Rath continues her popular Northwoods saga in this affirming and often humorous tale of romance, betrayal, and danger.

Booklist Reviews 2012 June #1

Rath's Northwoods saga continues as Natalie, who had "immersed herself in her husband's identity, been ‘the perfect banker's wife' and always deferred to him," rents out her house for the summer, and returns to their rustic cabin for rest and solitude after his recent death. He had taken care of "all the planning and thinking," while she had "all the feelings," leaving her unprepared to deal with the wolf attack on her beloved dog, Molly, the persistent rumor that John Dillinger's $210,000 was hidden in the area, and the unexpected arrival of a teenaged granddaughter she barely knows. Incensed at reading of the attack on Molly, the Howlers, a group of anti-wolf extremists, barrage Natalie with violent e-mail on behalf of their cause, making the cabin without indoor plumbing and the 80 surrounding acres of wilderness seem anything but restful. Finally, an "indecently handsome" wolf biologist rounds out this great summer mystery read. Copyright 2012 Booklist Reviews.

Rath returns to the setting of her first novel, Star Lake Saloon and Housekeeping Cottages (2005), for her pleasant if predictable third novel. Soon after recently widowed Natalie Waters Lindquist arrives at her family cabin in rural northern Wisconsin, an attack on her beloved dog, Molly, places her at the center of rising local tensions over hunting and conservation. After being roped by feisty Ginger Kovalcik into a hunt for a gangster's lost treasure, Natalie's summer is further complicated by the unexpected arrival of her troubled granddaughter, Minnow. Romantic possibilities emerge in hunky but secretive Bud Foster and handsome ecologist Will Davis. But a more compelling passion is Natalie's fierce devotion to her family's old home. Adventure takes Natalie and her eccentric companions from a roadkill picnic to a notorious gangster hideout, from a pristine morning lake to a rowdy bar called the Last Resort. The result is an affectionate portrait of this distinct region and its quirky inhabitants. (July)
