In Downstream into Danger by Susan Davis Herring, Jenny faces more danger than she ever dreamed possible. Enjoying a camping trip in Tennessee, freelance writer Jenny is testing kayak paddles for an outdoor magazine. Enjoying life with the other campers, the last thing Jenny expects is for two of her campmates to be struck by lightning in a freak storm. As she paddles down the creek, she comes across a hidden cache of drugs. Befriending two fishermen and a park ranger, Jenny has no idea that her life is about to take a turn for the worse and that she will literally be fighting for her life. Heading out on a whitewater creek, Jenny is unlucky enough to run straight into the drug smugglers and now the fight is on. Can she get away from them in time? Will her experience on the river stand her in good stead or will she become another statistic?
Downstream into Danger by Susan Davis Herring is written by a woman with many years of canoeing and kayaking experience and it shows in the story. Fast-paced action in a wilderness setting, this story has a wonderfully strong female lead, a woman who will stand up for anything she believes in and will fight to the death if needs be. There are other characters that add to the story and all of them lend reality to the setting, with lots of kayaking and canoeing information added to make the story more realistic. The main protagonist is very well developed, and the writing is descriptive enough to take you right into the middle of the story, experiencing the outdoor world, the thrill of the white water creeks, and the heart-pounding terror that Jenny faces. A great action-packed story, I hope this will turn into a series rather than a standalone.
