The Short of It:
Four women, inexperienced in river rafting take a rafting trip of a lifetime. What could go wrong?
The Rest of It:
Pia, Sandra, Rachel and Win have known each other for years. They’ve been through divorces and break-ups and weathered many ups and downs but the one thing they look forward to is the girl trip they take every year. This year, Pia books a white water rafting experience with a guide, exploring newly discovered territory and right from the get-go, things don’t go as planned.
I picked this book up thinking it was another book entirely! My mistake but I kept reading and I really enjoyed this story. Some of it was a tiny bit far-fetched but the frantic pace of it and the overall desire to survive comes through crystal clear. The river plays a major role, but there are human threats to consider as well which make it a little more exciting.
It’s been around for a few years and was definitely not the NEW book I thought I was reading, but I’d still recommend it.
