Please Welcome Sharon McGregor

She has written humour, romance and mystery for magazines such as Sasee, Long and Short Romance, Great Mystery and Suspense Magazine and Horizon as well as stories for the Chicken Soup for the Soul series.

Check out Sharon's Facebook page.

Blurb:  Maddie Smart is at a crossroads. Her job and her relationship have both suddenly ended. On the advice of a friend she flies to a northern fishing lodge to recoup and plan her next move. Here she meets fishermen who don't fish, a policeman who does, a man who says he's seen Sasquatch and a lodge owner who sets her pulses racing.
She finds herself running headlong into danger with no idea of who she can trust. Her feelings for Lodge owner Rupert are clouded by his hot and cold moods, and her growing suspicions of his right hand man's involvement in a bear part harvesting ring. Maddie must face her deepest fear before she can find answers. She also must learn to trust again before she can find her own happy ending.

My Review:  Since Maddie Smart is out of a job and has just been dumped by her boyfriend, she agrees to be a fill-in manager at a fishing lodge in the north where she stumbles on a clandestine plot to harvest bear organs.
            Rupe, the owner of the lodge, sends sparks flying through Maddie, but his moods run hot and cold. She doesn’t know what to expect from him or some of his employees.
            The job is easy and her inquisitive nature turns her to the hiking trails around the lodge. She hears too much and is brutally attacked. The pieces of the puzzle fall together and she finds herself in over her head.
            Ms McGregor certainly takes the reader along on this action packed thriller. I couldn’t put the story down for long and enjoyed the beautiful glimpse of the northern wilderness. Northern Lights is a must read.
