Animals We Are

Animals We Are

"A relationship is a question asked over and over again across a lifetime... will the animal in you, bite the animal in me?"

Zoe and her boyfriend Mike head to Yosemite for week-long horse tour of the backcountry, but get more than they bargained for when a serial killer stalks their party through the woods. The killer's connection to Mike's past makes Zoe question the heart of the man she's fallen in love with. As the mystery unravels, Zoe is forced to confront not just the darkness within others, but the animal within herself. In this fast-paced, romantic thriller, readers are asked to sharpen their fangs and venture through the wilderness within... because not all animals live in the forest.
