A little mix-up…
Could make her Christmas wonderful!
Natalie Weiss is mortified. After mistaking handsome Tanner Rockford for his cousin, she’s followed him to rural Alaska. Now she’s stranded—until Tanner invites her to spend Christmas with his family in their rustic, cozy cabin. But in this idyllic winter wonderland, Natalie discovers the family she’s never had…and the love she never knew she needed. But what happens when they all discover why she’s really there?
My review of An Alaskan Family Christmas
How far would you go to help your friend? Natalie Weiss is determined to help her friend Brooke find the father of her baby, Dane Rockford. Natalie is convinced that he is lying to Brooke about who he is. She can’t believe that in only two weeks, her friend and the missing man fell in love and that he is coming back.
Natalie thinks he must be married; otherwise he would have given her a phone number or a real address. Since he only has a post office box, Natalie has been staking out the joint to find out more about this guy.
When a man finally shows up to pick up the mail, Natalie follows him…to the train station. The man gets on a train, so Natalie does too. After all, she’s got plans to fly to Anchorage, and the train is heading for Anchorage. She’ll end up in the same place. It’ll just take a little longer.
Things get super awkward when Natalie, thinking another train will be by in hours rather than days, gets off of the train to follow the guy, whom she thinks is Dane (but is actually his cousin Tanner!), to his address, get the address to Brooke, and head on to Anchorage. Ah, but, the best laid plans of mice and men often go awry…
Those plans going awry is what makes An Alaskan Family Christmas so much fun! I used to read the same Christmas books year after year, and though they still warmed my heart, it’s nice to find new ones to love. Since this book is in the Harlequin Heartwarming division, it is a clean romance, and I know a lot of us appreciate that fact.
I think that at one time or another, most of us have longed to visit Alaska. It seems like another world. I’ve watched programs on TV where they cover the lives of people living in remote areas of Alaska. Those people are true pioneers! Needless to say, I loved this Alaskan setting. The author does a marvelous job painting a picture of the cabin and its surrounding land. Oh and the aurora borealis…how magnificent that would be to see!
As much as I loved the setting of An Alaskan Family Christmas, it is the characters that will worm their way into your hearts…especially Tanner’s nieces. They act like typical little girls and definitely typical sisters! I have 2 sisters, so I know how easily we got into arguments about who sat where and who got what! These girls, who don’t act like perfect little angels, help make the book more realistic. Of course, I was entertained by the interactions among all of Tanner’s family and Natalie as they spent several days in the cabin together. The author’s description of the time the family spent together at the cabin really warmed my heart. No cell phones; no television; just good old fashioned board games, stories, baking, and more.
I think that An Alaskan Family Christmas will warm your heart as much as it did mine. This is a book you won’t want to put down, nor will you want it to end! Get a copy ASAP and enjoy!
