Animals We Are

by Valerie Brandy


A fast-paced, action-packed domestic thriller about a young woman surviving in the wild of Yosemite backcountry, stalked by a killer, with no one to rely on but herself…

Zoe’s never been a trusting person. Bouncing from boyfriend to boyfriend, she’s always found herself let down in the romance department. But when she meets Mike– a warm, steady carpenter who says exactly what he feels– she finally lets her walls down and makes room for love.

When Zoe and Mike head to Yosemite for a week-long horse tour of the backcountry, it should be the romantic trip of a life time. But the beauty of nature turns into a snarling trap when a serial killer stalks their party through the woods, thwarting their trip deep in the forest, where the group is far from help. When it’s revealed that the killer has a connection to Mike’s past, suddenly Zoe finds herself questioning the heart of the man she’s fallen in love with. Before she can confront her demons, Mike disappears, seemingly kidnapped by the killer. A scavenger hunt begins, and Zoe is forced to journey through the wilderness, following clue after to clue to rescue her man.

But as the clues reveal more about her relationship, Zoe beings to wonder… is she chasing after a man who’s not who he appears to be? Has Mike really shown her his true self, teeth and claws exposed? What kind of animal is he?

Fan’s of Cheryl Strayed’s “WILD,” will love this empowering, fast-paced, adventurous thriller. Thriller lovers who enjoy books by Shari Lapena, Ruth Ware, and Lucy Foley will love this empowering adventure that suggests we can learn to trust another a person until we’ve harnessed our own strength. Readers are asked to sharpen their fangs and venture through the wilderness within– because not all animals live in the forest.
