Today, I’m happy to tell you about Falling for Alaska, a new clean romance by Shannon L. Brown.
When Jemma Harris inherits a house from her great-aunt in Palmer, Alaska, she quits her tedious corporate job and catches the next plane out of Atlanta. She intends to carry through with her plan to sell the furniture she flips—buys cheaply and rehabs—at large flea markets, then open a retail storefront. The business should work just as well in Alaska, despite her difficult but gorgeous neighbor. Or will it?
Nathaniel Montgomery lives on the outskirts of small-town Palmer and enjoys working at home amid the peace and quiet. When the new owner of the house across the street begins sawing and creating chaos, his life is turned upside down. His difficult childhood makes close relationships challenging—then a stray puppy begins to thaw his heart.
If you enjoy sweet romance with a touch of humor, you will enjoy Falling for Alaska. At the start of the story, Jemma meets Nathaniel and the attraction is mutual. Only one problem, they kind of hate each other. Despite the undeniable attraction and the best efforts of their matchmaking family members, they both throw up barriers around themselves that must be torn down before they can find happiness. Both Jemma and Nathaniel are likable and well developed characters, and I found myself rooting for them as the story unraveled. It was a fast-moving, fun read.
The descriptions of Alaska and the great outdoors definitely added to the story, without overburdening the reader with too much detail. I just might have to move Alaska up a couple of spots on that list of places I’d like to visit some day.
