Review of "Alaskan Sweethearts"

Review of Alaskan Sweethearts

by Janet Tronstad

North to Dry Creek series---book 1----Hunter Jacobson wants no part of his grandfather's matchmaking. The lone cowboy is certain that's what the old man is doing when he trades part of their Montana ranch for Scarlett Murphy's claim to an old Alaska gold mine. Or is he running one of his legendary scams on the sweet single mom? A trip to Dry Creek, Alaska, reveals the truth&;and brings Hunter and Scarlett face-to-face with a past family feud and a vulnerable present. But surprisingly it's the future that intrigues Hunter most and ;if he can get Scarlett to make him her groom.

NORTH TO DRY CREEK: The road to Alaska is paved with love.

MY REVIEW:  I chose to read this book and review it because my nephew who is in the Army is stationed in Alaska with his family and they are enjoying all the beauties of Alaskan living.   I love watching shows about Alaska and the beautiful scenery.   The story begins in Montana and ends up in Alaska as the family decides to go back to Dry Creek, Alaska to the mine.   Hunter may not be so interested in his grandfather's matchmaking but he does seem highly interested in the lovely young single mom, Scarlett, and her adorable little boy, Joey.   He helps Joey overcome some of his fears.   Scarlett is having a hard time trusting others after the things her ex-husband did.  She is living in fear of her life.  I won't spoil the story for readers so I will stop there to say that I thoroughly enjoyed this book.   It did have descriptions of lots of the beautiful Alaskan and Montana scenery.  It also had just enough mystery to solve to satisfy my love of suspense as well as some good old-fashioned romance.   I rate this book 5 stars and highly recommend it to readers.   
I received a free pdf version of this book from netgalley in exchange for my honest review.
