book by this author Bigfoot researcher Professor Berton Sorel is missing near Roanoke Ridge, Oregon Laura Reagan and her friend Saad Javed arrive to help find him She is a former student of his, a sceptic, and currently the owner of a popular science based website called Science Is Awesome Science IA The story occurs just before and during the annual Roanoke Valley Bigfoot Festival The plot blends crime and cryptozoology into a contemporary setting It was interesting and had a mystery, but the pace seemed slow to me The characters did not seem fully developed and three dimensional However, their motivations seemed believable and there was an interesting array of secondary characters With a suspicious death, a wave of Bigfoot sightings, and the missing professor, I was expectingsuspense and a faster pace While the plot twists were not unexpected, it was still an entertaining read Additionally, the author did a great job of giving a clear sense of time and place through vivid descriptions that were not overdone The author s interest in the natural world came through clearly as well.Overall, this was an enjoyable book with a satisfying ending Thanks to Dundurn Press and J.J Dupuis for a complimentary ARC of this novel via NetGalley and the opportunity to provide an honest review Opinions are mine alone and are not biased in any way. 3.5 Stars rounded to 4 Many thanks to NetGalley and Dundurn Press for this enjoyable, intriguing mystery From childhood, I was fascinated by books and articles dealing with cryptozoology I was always skeptical of reports of sightings of legendary creatures such as Sasquatch Bigfoot , Yeti, Loch Ness Monster, and other creatures unproven by scientific research I never believed in them, but always held the hope that one day such a creature s existence would be confirmed I enjoyed the protago 3.5 Stars rounded to 4 Many thanks to NetGalley and Dundurn Press for this enjoyable, intriguing mystery From childhood, I was

creatures unproven by scientific research I never believed in them, but always held the hope that one day such a creature s existence would be confirmed I enjoyed the protagonist Investigator, Laura Reagan She has a popular website that aims to bring scientific facts to its vast audience, and she is always skeptical of myths and scientific hoaxes Her goal is to expose frauds and rumours through well researched truths She is cynical, resourceful, and physically tough Her past experience in wilderness hiking and camping with her father has given her endurance and stamina In addition, she has had martial arts training The story is set in Roanoke Ridge in the Oregon wilderness There have been a number of recent sightings of Bigfoot reported in the vicinity, and the annual Bigfoot Festival is approaching It draws enthusiasts and believers to the area There is also present a disgraced hoaxer who falsely claimed to have the body of a Sasquatch in his possession Laura is drawn to the festival because her old college mentor, a respected and eccentric man searching for Bigfoot has disappeared and she is determined to find him She is also on a mission to gather material for her websites and hoping to recover a long missing videotape This was made years before by Laura s father and is said to show a distant view of a Sasquatch and its child I thought that the characters of Laura, and of Saad, computer expert and assistant, also Park Ranger and guide, Ted were well developed personalities I felt the important secondary characters were introduced too quickly, lacked depth, and I had difficulty sorting them out After a slow beginning, the team discovers the body of a man who appears to have been murdered The suspense, pace and tension increase considerably Laura and her friends continue the search for the elderly professor They are in danger as a conspiracy begins to unfold The cover and final chapter seem to forecast further books in a series I eagerly anticipate reading about Laura s next adventures Laura, the owner of a hard science website, is called in to help find an old family friend when he goes missing while hunting for bigfoot Her father was also a bigfoot hunter and she grew up hiking and camping in the woods of Oregon where the professor disappeared Laura is a very likable character that we get to know as she traipses through the woods looking for the professor There s not much of a suspense or mystery as she s not really trying to solve a mystery It sof a search and res Laura, the owner of a hard science website, is called in

switched scenes and half a day had passed The book does set itself up for future novels Received a review copy from Dundurn Press and NetGalley All thoughts are my own and in no way influenced by the aforemntioned.
