Bailey Craig goes back to her hometown of Yancey, Alaska, for her aunt's funeral, but all she really wants to do is leave. She wants to get away from her past, and all the mistakes she made there, including breaking the heart of Cole McKenna. Unfortunately, Cole won't let her be, and she's starting to feel things for him again. Bailey knows that she could never hope to be Cole's...well, anything. And then, she's surrounded by mystery, death, sabotage. Will she even get out of this one alive?
UMmm... let's go with... 5
1: Alaska is my favorite book setting EVER!!!! This book captured that spirit. It was (Honestly) the main reason the book appealed to me.
2. First time for Dani Pettrey (I've been reading a lot of new authors lately!) and I can't wait to get my hands on the others in this series. I loved the writing style (And as previously stated, the setting!)
3: I loved the characters. I can't wait to read more about them, even if it's just what color their pajamas are. The characters reach out and grab your heart, and pretty soon you're ready to book a ticket to Alaska and meet them. (Wishful thinking)
4: I love how Cole helped Bay see that her past didn't define her future, or even her present. That when Jesus died for her, and she accepted him as Savior, she became a new creature, and all of that was laid to rest.
5: I loved learning all about diving. It's never really interested me that much but this book has rather niggled that hook (I muddled that up, but please understand what I was going for) I also love love love reading about Alaskan history, & I learned something new about that too in this book. Russian-Alaska is really cool, all of it is really!
