Melissa4 Stars Out Of 5Reads like a Hallmark MovieDecember 26, 2017MelissaQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4If you love Hallmark movies you will fall in love with this charming book. This book very much reminded me of many of the Christmas Hallmark movies I have been watching lately.
I wondered how Maggie and Finn (love his Irish name) would get around their strongly held beliefs that romance was out of the question. Of course you throw a cute kid in there and your heart is bound to melt.
If you want one last Christmas read before the season if over this one will be a good one to pick up.

I loved these characters who were protecting their broken hearts and how God works everything for His good. Such a sweet story that brought joy to my heart. Add the endearing boy, Oliver and you have a package you will want to unwrap. It is a perfect addition to your Christmas read pile.
I received a complimentary copy from the author. The honest review and opinions are my own and were not required.
KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Heartwarming Holiday RomanceNovember 3, 2017KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Woohoo -- back in Love, Alaska, this time with a holiday love story that has all the earmarks of the perfect Christmas tale. A small town chock full of friendly folks who believe in love, a hero and heroine who don't -- at least not for themselves, and a little boy who desperately wants a dad. And there's plenty of Christmassy stuff to make things extra festive. Loved the glimpses into the lives of past heroes and heroines (this is the sixth in the Alaskan Grooms series but all read as a standalone too.) A heartwarming tale brimming with seasonal magic and second chances.
bbgreen5 Stars Out Of 5Get lost in Love Alaska for the holidaysOctober 17, 2017bbgreenQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5An Alaskan Christmas by Belle Calhoune is a sweet holiday story that will leave you longing for a hot chocolate in front of a crisp warm fireplace while getting in the mood for the season of love.
The story begins when Finn O'Rourke gives Maggie Richards and her little boy, Oliver a ride on his plane to Love, Alaska. Finn was her childhood friend that she remembers from when she visited her uncle Tobias. Maggie and her son have just arrived in town after she inherited a small gift shop from her uncle.
Maggie wants to start a fresh life for Oliver in Love. Being a new single mom, she wants what's best for her son. Oliver is looking for a new daddy, but that's the farthest thing from her mind. She's looking to get her gift shop ready for the holidays. With Finn on board, it should be possible.
Finn is a pilot. He's interested in helping Maggie because for one their friends and two her uncle Tobias promised him inheritance once he helped her with the shop. His dream is to be partners in O'Rourke Charters with his brother, Declan.
What can happen when two childhood friends reunite after being separated for twenty five years? Maggie and Finn have one goal in mind and that's getting the shop ready for the holidays. They begin to spend a lot of time together and rekindle their old friendship. Both Maggie and Finn have relationship issues. Maggie isn't yet ready for one and Finn holds secrets from his past that he must come to terms with. Their both broken from those that hurt them in their past. They're both afraid to take that step into new territory. They both must take a leap of faith and build trust in each other. Will they become more than friends?
I really enjoyed this book. The setting and the characters was everything that I envisioned for a holiday story. I recommend it. I was given this book for free from this author. I was not required to post a positive review. All opinions are my own.

Two people that needed each other but were determined to avoid "romantic entanglements" because of their pasts! A past that included each other as children, I might add, but that was long ago and in the ensuing years, a lot of trials and tribulation have happened to each one. They are each wanting to move forward now so that doesn't include romance. Maggie has a sweet little boy and a new life ahead of her when she leaves Boston under a cloud of shame and wants to start a new life in Alaska after her deceased uncle leaves her his business in his will. She sees this as a new beginning. Finn also received something in Maggie's uncle's will and that puts him in close contact with her as they work to open up this business. Finn, however, has no illusions that he is anything but a friend to Maggie. They were once the best of friends at 10 years old but they could never be more than that. He loves her little boy but doesn't want to be mistaken for father material either. Finn is hiding secrets that no one else knows and he wants to keep it that way.
I've been waiting for Finn's book ever since he appeared in another book! I knew he had to have a book of his own! This one didn't disappoint! Such a wonderful story of two people trying to work out their past and seeking forgiveness for things they perceived were their fault. Such a tender, touching holiday book! I highly recommend it!
