Publisher's Summary

In this comic, suspenseful adventure, runaway wife Luna Burke and unsuspecting getaway driver Ned Harrelson are heading from Key West to Ontario with a stolen bald eagle in the back seat. 

Licensed to care for injured and orphaned wildlife, Luna Burke is determined to smuggle the eagle out of her husband’s private zoo in Florida, reunite the bird with its mate, and get them both to an eagle sanctuary in Canada. Hot on her trail is her mogul husband, his bodyguards, the police, conservation officials, and an expert government tracker; aiding and abetting her is a smitten young tech guy, a lethal Navy SEAL turned panther advocate, and an underground railroad of wildlife rescuers intent on protecting one of their own. Waiting in Ontario is a legendary old eco-warrior more than willing to provide refuge...as long as they can make it across the border.

Quirky Road Trip Animal Rescue Underground

A wildlife-loving woman wanting freedom from a possessive husband, an anti-social animal-fearing nerd, and an eagle go on the run from Key West to Ontario with an army of seekers on their trail. Sounded like the best of road trips and I was tickled to be along for the ride.

Unflappable begins with a billionaire’s wife dissatisfied with being a trophy wife and realizing that he will never let her simply walk away when he takes a bald eagle from its habitat and mate to dangle as bait to get her back. Luna reacts by staging a rescue of Mars the eagle and her cohort is the newest volunteer at her friend’s animal rescue. At first, she has no plan and socially awkward Ned is shell-shocked that he’s even on this adventure.

I’ve described books as a wild ride before, but Unflappable takes the cake. I had a blast careening along with Luna and Ned as they avoid her wealthy husband’s goon squad including legit government agencies, meet up with so many quirky characters who hinder or help along the way including an Underground wildlife rescue group. The story kept up with the pace just fine and even had time to color in the personalities of Luna and Ned and the other major secondary characters as it went including Luna’s cohort in ‘crime’ back at the zoo, Harper and her love interest.

The intro to the world of extreme wildlife conservation and what the habitats and rescues face with low budgeting issues was informative and fascinating. As an animal lover, I was onboard with the descriptions of them working with Mars and other animals along the way and the good-hearted people who dedicated themselves to this pursuit.

While things are pretty topsy-turvy with the pursuit and all the moving components, there is a personal journey and romance going on. I liked Luna, but I sure did want to jerk a knot in her for pushing away Ned so many times. He’s raw and bumbling in social situations and even in her world of animal rescue and conservation, but he is trying hard and rolling with it all even to the point of being more than just the getaway driver. Full-figured and large personalitied Harper and her handsome law enforcement love interest were my favorites. There is lots of humor in the book, but Harper’s resonated with me the most.

Kurt Rhoads and Nance Williamson did a dual narration of the book. I thought both their storytelling and their ability to voice so many characters was fabulous. They had good grasp of the story’s tone and pacing and really enhanced the listen. That said, I was none too keen on the way the story was split. Their narration was not every other chapter or even large blocks of character POV, but they switched when males or females were speaking so it went back and forth a lot. I got used to it to some extent, but I did find it distracting especially since there were a ton of characters.

All in all, it was a fun story that hit many emotional facets and opened up the world of wildlife conservation and even the politics associated while delivering engaging characters and situation. Those who enjoy a light suspense with a side of romance should definitely give this a look-see.

Grew on me as it went along

The premise of the book was gripping and the action scenes were very well done, though short and pointed. In contract to that, the scenes in the car and at rehab stops tended to be pretty drawn out. Also, probably just personally, but i got confused with the sheer amount of different characters and found it hard to keep track of who was who and where the were, and if the main characters had even interacted with them yet. I really liked the in-depth look into the different species of rehabilitated animals.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Fun, Wandering

This is a broad, wandering story that I could easily imagine happening in the real world rather just in a novel.

Narrator did well, though it seemed to jump between the male and female readers at odd intervals.

I received a copy of this boot at my request in exchange for a FAIR review.

Eagles rock!

Loved all the characters, excellent, except for a certain husband. Felt has though I was riding along with Luna on this crazy and determined adventure to reunite two lovebirds.

Fun adventure and fantastic characters

This is a winning combination for me – a cross-country car chase, a young woman finding her strength, a pissed off eagle on the back seat and a found-family of animal rehabbers helping along the way.
There were a lot of characters in this book which I think were exceptionally well handled by the narrating duo, giving them each their distinct voices so I wasn’t confused over who was speaking at any given time.

Luna has left her marriage of 6 months, her husband is a billionaire twice her age who believes himself to be in love with her. It’s the fact that he truly believes this rather than it having been a truly loveless marriage that adds some depths to the story.
Each of the main characters has their own arc, all of which I was thoroughly invested in. I love how much the author packed into this book and the directions she decided to take them all in – there was redemption for the less wonderful characters and some of the heroes made some less than heroic choices. There’s plenty of action to keep the story pushing on but it was the characters I was particularly drawn to.

As an animal lover and zoology nerd, this story held a particular appeal. Animal people are a special breed of people that I can relate to, but I’m sure that most readers would feel the same way thanks to this author’s enticing style of writing.

The narrators, Kurt Rhoads and Nance Williamson, worked really well together, the reading was seamless and they really brought the emotion of the book to the forefront – I’m glad I listened to this book rather than just read it or I would have missed out on a great experience.
