Here is one that I wrote back in July.... I have two new reviews that I am ready to write, but until then, here is this one!
Paige was thrown out of her Alaskan village two years ago, after her father embezzled from the town. She was deemed guilty by association, and her boyfriend told her in no uncertain terms that she needed to leave. Now she's back, and with a few surprises, including a check for part of the money her father took and Emma, her baby, who needs to be introduced to her daddy. Can she and Cameron put the past behind them to make a real family for Emma?
I'm giving this book 4.5 stars.
1: Let's start with the obvious. Alaska!!! My absolute favorite setting for books. The village is called Love, Alaska.... is there anything more perfect than that? No... the answer is no. (I mean, I have a label just for Alaska books, because eventually they will take over this blog ;) )
2: My goodness... those first couple of chapters I was very offended by the townspeople. How dare they treat Paige like that? It's a great story if it can get you up in arms that quickly.
3: This story had great highlights of trust and forgiveness throughout it, and in a really realistic way too.
4: This was the first Belle Calhoun book I've ever read, and I'm a fan. I enjoy her style and her characters.
5: All-around a prize winner. Great story, great cover, great everything. There wasn't anything about this book that I didn't like. (Well, besides the fact that I was very confused about Emma. Her birthday is December 5th, the story is late April... they keep saying 14 months, but shouldn't she be 16, almost 17, months old? Maybe my math is really bad, but last time I checked....It doesn't change the substance of the story, though.)
