The national bestselling author of Breaking Wild delivers a riveting and haunting thriller about a woman who fears that the greatest threat to her survival could be the man she loves…
On a conservation study in northern Alberta, field technician Marian Engström finds her true calling: training rescue dogs to help track endangered or threatened wildlife. Under the tutelage of experienced handler Tate Mathias, Marian feels her future opening up before her.
But after Tate is killed in a bear attack, Marian finds herself questioning the man she thought she loved. Growing inconsistencies start to surface, possibly linking Tate to the murders of four women over six years. Working with a retired forensic profiler who was never able to close the cases, Marian relives her relationship with Tate, desperately hoping to clear his name as a serial killer. And as she circles ever closer to the truth, evil stalks her every move…
From the lush and breathtaking Rocky Mountains to the vast deserts of Utah, The Last Woman in the Forest chronicles the experiences of a woman whose faith in the nature of man is about to be tested.

I listened to this book on audio and thoroughly enjoyed it. I found it very interesting how the author incorporated some factual information about the processes and tracking of wildlife. The characters were very well thought out and sincere.
My heart hurt for Marian and Nick. I liked there usually friendship. This was a fun read. I gave it 4 crowns.
