Something Wilder

Something Wilder Summary

The “reigning romance queens” (PopSugar) and New York Timesbestselling authors of The Soulmate Equation and The Unhoneymoonerspresent a charming and laugh-out-loud funny novel filled with adventure, treasure, and, of course, love.

Growing up the daughter of notorious treasure hunter and absentee father Duke Wilder left Lily without much patience for the profession…or much money in the bank. But Lily is nothing if not resourceful, and now uses Duke’s coveted hand-drawn maps to guide tourists on fake treasure hunts through the red rock canyons of Utah. It pays the bills but doesn’t leave enough to fulfill her dream of buying back the beloved ranch her father sold years ago, and definitely not enough to deal with the sight of the man she once loved walking back into her life with a motley crew of friends ready to hit the trails. Frankly, Lily would like to take him out into the wilderness—and leave him there.

Leo Grady knew mirages were a thing in the desert, but they’d barely left civilization when the silhouette of his greatest regret comes into focus in the flickering light of the campfire. Ready to leave the past behind him, Leo wants nothing more than to reconnect with his first and only love. Unfortunately, Lily Wilder is all business, drawing a clear line in the sand: it’s never going to happen.

But when the trip goes horribly and hilariously wrong, the group wonders if maybe the legend of the hidden treasure wasn’t a gimmick after all. There’s a chance to right the wrongs—of Duke’s past and their own—but only if Leo and Lily can confront their history and work together. Alone under the stars in the isolated and dangerous mazes of the Canyonlands, Leo and Lily must decide whether they’ll risk their lives and hearts on the adventure of a lifetime.

From the author of the “heartfelt and funny” (Publishers Weekly) sensation The Unhoneymooners, this page-turning adventure full of second chances, complicated relationships, and the breathtaking beauty of the American Southwest will take fans on one wild ride.

They don’t miss!5 star

An action packed adventure that I’m begging for a studio to put on the big screen. The suspense, twists, turns, and romance were incredible. I love how plot driven this story was, and how the conflicts were based more on outside factors than just from the 2 protagonists themselves. I love that the setting was its own character too. An incredibly fast read and I truly enjoyed every minute!55

WOW! This book would make an awesome movie! This is an action packed romance and one of the best stories I have read this year. I always love these two combo authors, they have outdone themselves with this puzzle bound book. Here is searching for clues, puzzles, mystery, drama, violent crime, romance and of course the HEA. A definite addition to your TBR list. Do not miss this one.55
