Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book for review from Prism Book Tours and the author. I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.

Dana Raynott just traveled 3,600 miles to reunite with the brother who changed his name and fled to Alaska nineteen years ago. It's impossible not to be moved by this wild, breathtaking state, even if Dana's no closer to finding the answers she came here for.
Her brother's best friend, Anchorage engineer Sam MacKettrick, might be able to help her. He's strong and kind—a six-foot, irresistible blend of diverse cultures. He's also haunted by a tragic family history with a startling connection to Dana's past…
Dana Raynott wants to reconnect with a brother she hasn’t seen in a long time. Sam MackKettrick is an interesting man but hard to figure out. Some of that might be due to the mystery that slowly reveals itself and how it connects our two main characters together. Dana’s brother Chris is very aloof and having him out of the picture just makes you wanting to know more.
I love my sexy reads but that’s not all that I love and this book was a good reminder. It’s a clean read but for me it was all about that mystery and trying to solve and how it connects our characters. I’m not good at solving mysteries so I have to rely on the author to help me through the process. It’s a great way to keep things a surprise and having me turn the page to see what our author will reveal next. But she does have questions swirling in my brain as to how well did I really know my parents – maybe I have a mystery of my own to look into.
This book is a great incentive if you’ve ever thought about going to Alaska. I watch some of the shows on TV but this author has me moving my trip up on my bucket list. If I’m going to pack reading material it will have to be this book. I’ve been a Harlequin fan since high school and I think this is a great addition to my collection. By the time you finish, you will understand why Harlequin has added to their Heartwarming series.
Toward the very end, Dana says something to Sam that sums things up nicely – this book was a great adventure. It also left me looking forward to reading more of this series. And it was nice to be informed that the next book will be coming out in December – what a nice Christmas gift to myself.
Once upon a time ...
when Beth Carpenter was a little girl, she read everything she could get her hands on, and entertained herself on the school bus by making up stories in her head. Not a lot has changed. She's still consuming books like M&Ms, and spends her days creating happily-ever-afters for her imaginary friends.
She lives in Alaska and Arizona with her husband and an aggressively affectionate fifty-pound lap dog. She loves to hear from readers.
