Roberta escapes her humdrum middle-class existence and the persistent ache of her dead mother’s secrets by fleeing to Alaska. Having abandoned everything she’d spent her life building, Roberta remakes herself in another place, doing anything other than responding to the demands of her self-absorbed husband, her entitled kids, and her Pottery Barn home. Taking her first job since college, and a small room above a tourists’ shop, she contemplates new vistas. She never expected, however, to find romance in the form of a handsome federal agent involved in murder and mayhem.And it is murder and mayhem, and the discovery of other’s secrets, that causes Roberta to run for her life into the Alaskan wilderness…
What a strangely exciting story! Roberta has taken a flight of fancy and decided now is the time to do something with her mothers ashes so she hops on a plane to Alaska with nothing but the clothes on her back, her handbag and her mothers urn.
Little does she know that in being a generous soul to two backpackers in the airport would lead her life to become endangered and find herself embroiled in a murder case, and jewel smuggling ring!
Clearing in the woods was quite an exciting crime novel and I thoroughly enjoyed Roberta’s little exploits as she leaves her husband and kids to do this one small act that lands her in so much trouble.
