The Cranberry Bog - Book Review
"Scott Underhill takes readers on a stimulating, emotional
ride in his book The Cranberry Bog, an environmental
suspense novel. Environment Engineer, Jeff Ridge works
for the Environment Protection Agency. He and his
co-worker, Tara Clemens, are walking on eggshells around
an unusual assignment after being called into investigate
tainted water at a Bed and Breakfast owned by Joshua and
Debra Klickman. Jeff and Tara are quickly exposed to the
'small town syndrome' - everyone knows everyone else's
Meanwhile, Jeff is feeling ousted by his superiors who
choose to compromise the Sheziou Report. Heated
tempers and flared verbal exchanges are not enough to
deter Jeff from his ideals. When the criminals resort to
beatings and persecution, Jeff is only fueled by the
knowledge that he is on to something big. The mysterious
helper who drops off notes and envelopes of evidence
leads Jeff to clues that egg him on to seek the truth.
Attraction to Lydia Kittle, the heiress of Kittle Manufacturing,
contradicts his nearly fanatic feelings towards big business,
which has often turned its back on the environment. Jeff's
tragic tale of loss froze his heart, but the sight of Lydia gives
him the strength to thaw and except love again.
I really enjoyed reading this novel, which seemingly has it
all. Environmental pollution, corrupt officials, politicians and
companies lead to thrilling chase scenes and to
cold-blooded murder. It is a moving romance with a glorious
'David against Goliath' theme that will have you cheering for
the underdog. Of course, the focus on the environment is
very appealing to me as I deeply cherish, and work towards,
the health of the planet.
I highly recommend Scott Underhill's novel, The Cranberry
Bog - and I look forward to reading his other novel, Give a
