This book has a lot going for it. For much of the story, the setting is the state of Alaska where we get to see the wildlife, the scenery, and even the Northern Lights through the eyes of Andrea and Riley, the main characters. The tale of these two women finding each other again after a heart-rending breakup fifteen years before is very well-written. I like the way the author shows how the love (and desire) that Andrea and Riley felt for each other is easily rekindled, but being able to trust each other is much harder to reclaim. It is the attempt to rebuild that trust that takes up a good portion of the plot.
The characters, both main and secondary are a major reason this is such a lovely book. They are easy to connect with, easy to love (except maybe Andrea’s ex) and make the story a joy to read.
I had a blast reading this novel, and I highly recommend it to all romance lovers.
I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.
