Publisher: Penguin Group
Tori and McKenna find themselves in Alaska trying to ensure that they keep their inheritance. The sisters are determined to do whatever it takes in Alaska but their uncle has really put them to the test. Tori is sent to a homestead where she is ultimately stripped of everything she knew. She has never had to rough it out a day. She is paired up with a handsome local guide who is prepared to show her around and teach her how to survive a year out in Alaska.
McKenna is a tomboy who loves being outside. She is forced to work in town in the bank. Her new boss, a stuffed-up suit, maybe cute but she could never imagine herself with a man like him. The more time she spends with Luke, the more she realizes that she likes him and maybe even the small town she is residing in.
This was a little too clean for my own taste, but I still enjoyed it and the cheesiness it brings to the table. Maybe because it is around the holiday time or even that the story is based in Alaska, it gave me a bit of comfort reading this. I really love Alaska-themed romances. I find them so intriguing and this one gave me an education on homesteads and how to rough it.
As the ladies find themselves falling in love with their companions, they also learn a lot about themselves. They join a quilting group with other women in the community. They forged a true sisterhood with the others in the town.
The story is predictable and there is not much in terms of angst but it is a quick read. The small town has it own quirks but it is fun. I liked that Uncle Monty pushed each lady out of their comfort zone.
I would recommend this for fans of a light, clean, small-town romance.
