    I purchased this novel at a local book store about three weeks ago thinking hoping that it would be a good read because Alaska is one of my favorite settings for novels and it is rare for any novel to be centered around the last frontier I wasn t the least bit thrilled with this book by the time that I had finished reading it and I had to really push myself just into finishing it.This book features not one but two stories with both containing very similar plots that I am still having a hard tim I purchased this novel at a local book store about three weeks ago thinking hoping that it would be a good read because Alaska is one of my favorite settings for novels and it is rare for any novel to be centered around the last frontier I wasn t the least bit thrilled with this book by the time that I had finished reading it and I had to really push myself just into finishing it.This book features not one but two stories with both containing very similar plots that I am still having a hard time trying to decide the reasoning behind doing this The first story of the book was far better than the second but still contained just as a many flaws and many unanswered questions The endings did not finish either of the stories and I felt like I was still waiting to finish the novel when I had already done so.One of the things that stands out to me the most as I write this review is the how pushy the heroes were with the heroines Normally I like strong, alpha hero males but Wyatt and Caleb were just overly done and I really didn t want to spend the time that I did in their company in my reading As for the heroines I liked both Kay and Meggie but thought that in their own nature they could have been much stronger characters, perhaps then stories would have beenrealistic.My biggest flaw with this novel is how rushed it is It is just as if the author is scrambling about writing to just fill the pages and not as equally caring about how the plot or the characters are lining up within those pages I think I am really disappointed because I have reviewed other books by Wilde and I know how great she had write and how well a story can be penned so I think this book is just a miss.As for continuing to read future novels from Wilde I think I will be a little bitselective in doing so and I think I will be doing my homework ahead of a time before I purchase another one of her novels to make that issuitable to what I am use to from the author herself

    Normally I love books by Lori Wilder and this one about 2 rugged Alaskan men and their quest to get married was enough incentive to get this book from the new books section of the library But when I got the book, I started out confused is it really a new book or just a retelling of some older stories about Quinn Scofield of Bear Creek, Alaska who falls for a city girl in publishing and Caleb Greenleaf, who falls for Klondike Kate at a masquerade ball Good premise in both stories, but ju Normally I love books by Lori Wilder and this one about 2 rugged Alaskan men and their quest to get married was enough incentive to get this book from the new books section of the library But when I got the book, I started out confused is it really a new book or just a retelling of some older stories about Quinn Scofield of Bear Creek, Alaska who falls for a city girl in publishing and Caleb Greenleaf, who falls for Klondike Kate at a masquerade ball Good premise in both stories, but just not up to this author s usual standard Missed the witty and tight dialogue from previous novels that was just not in these And while the remote settings are believable and add to the novel, the characters and plots did not live up to the majestic locale

    I liked this book okay, but the authors use of well worn euphemisms about sex, and, especially the descriptions of the male anatomy, kept getting in the way In reality, I would give it 2 1 2 stars I liked the characters enough not to hurl the book across the room every time I came across these laughable descriptions, but it was a struggle each and every time So, bear that in mind if you do pick it up to read I liked this book okay, but the authors use of well worn euphemisms about sex, and, especially the descriptions of the male anatomy, kept getting in the way In reality, I would give it 2 1 2 stars I liked the characters enough not to hurl the book across the room every time I came across these laughable descriptions, but it was a struggle each and every time So, bear that in mind if you do pick it up to read


  10. Cara Cara says:

    I picked up this book because I love Alaska, but it was really just a backdrop for a reissue of two stories from 2002 Inexplicably, these were books 1 and 4 in a series about mail order wives coming to Alaska Debbie macomber did this idea so much better in her midnight sons series Each story had some decent moments, but both were similar ideas and not that interesting.
