Blurb: Parks and Wildlife Officer Brock Summers-Weir and his new husband, wildlife rehabber Landon Weir-Summers, are on their honeymoon high in the northern Colorado Rockies when they find an orphaned cougar cub. They quickly discover that there have been a number of cougars injured or killed in the area around Steamboat Springs. Although they are supposed to be on vacation, they work with local officials to try to find out what’s happening to the big cats.
When they get too close to the answers, their camp is ransacked and an ominous message is left. Rather than letting this intimidate them, they step up their investigation in the hopes that they can find the people responsible for the carnage and still manage to have a happy honeymoon.
Review: Parks and Wildlife officer, Brock, and wildlife rehabber, Landon, are back, along with Bear. Brock and Landon are happily married and on their honeymoon, camping in the northern Colorado Rockies. Brock planned such a sweet, peaceful and wonderful honeymoon away from all the craziness of their jobs—but, it just doesn’t go his way.
Out hiking, they find a lost cougar cub and uncover the illegal trapping and capturing and killing of animals—the worst kind of people, who are willing to pay the high price for illegal hunting. While trying to help, Brock and Landon also meet new people, who work in their fields and help them as much as they can, sharing their knowledge. But Brock finds there is still intolerance and bigotry in their midst. Brock, especially, has to face the fact that things don’t work the same as they do in Teller County.
Cougar Chaos is really an emotional read. Besides the danger Brock and Landon face, they have to deal with the worst crime imaginable to wildlife. It was painstakingly hard for Landon just to put down a creature who was already suffering.
If you are a true lover of nature’s beauty and wildlife, you will never regret reading A.J. Marcus’s Mountain Spirit Mysteries series. He never ceases to educate and entertain with his amazing stories. He takes us into the world of Parks and Wildlife, the rehabbers and the creatures that are in danger.
Come along and follow Brock and Landon’s adventures, and Bear’s too, starting with Eagle’s Blood, Grizzly Discovery, and Moose Fever.
