Really enjoyable outdoors story

Trapped is a completely different read from most of the books that I pick these days, and I really enjoyed it. What I didnít realize was that this is the second in a series, and that all the main characters appeared in the previous book. We are given the backstory as the book progresses, but that sometimes feels a little awkward.

Trapped focuses on Will McCarroll, a ranger at Yellowstone who is sent to Glacier National Park in Montana. Heís unfamiliar with the new territory but soon runs into familiar problems: guns in the park and people out to get him. His sort-of girlfriend, Judge Annie Peacock, works out that he is being targeted and tries to ensure his safety.

I particularly enjoyed the aspects of this story about moving through the park, the wild animals, carrying out a search-and-rescue mission and more. The point of view varies from Will to various other characters, including a very interesting woman who gets revenge against someone who accidentally traps her dog.

The story threads pull together in a strong climax although I did find myself slightly having to suspend disbelief at times. Author April Christofferson makes her anti-guns-in-parks and anti-hunting views very plain. I agree with her, but others might find that aspect of the book off-putting.

This is a good read in a fascinating setting. The characterization may not always be that strong, but that doesnít matter too much. The setting carries the story.
