Pam Graber5 Stars Out Of 5Second-Chance Alaska LoveJune 13, 2022Pam GraberQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I sat down with this book planning to read a couple of chapters just to get a feel for this new series by Susan May Warren. Hours later, Dodge Kingston and Echo Yazzie's story walked into my heart and had me pulling for their second-chance love.
Dodge Kingston fell in love with Echo when he was 10 and she was 9. His feelings for her never changed, only deepened but when, following graduation, he proposed to her, she turned him down flat. She feared making the same mistake her parents had made, marrying too young. She then went to a graduation afterparty where alcohol flowed, and was found in the arms of the wrong Kingston triplet. The fight that ensued sent one brother to the hospital and Dodge to jail. She hasn't seen Dodge since, but has always felt guilty for destroying the Kingston family bond.
When Dodge is called back home to run Sky King Ranch and the supply service to rural Alaska, he's only there until his dad is cleared to fly again. He wants nothing to do with Echo or his Dad, feeling that both had betrayed him. When he is called upon to rescue Echo following a grizzly attack, he flies in weather he shouldn't be going up in to save the woman he has always loved. Arriving, he discovers Echo is unhurt but one of her dogs has been badly mauled. As they are thrown together repeatedly, they discover that their feelings aren't quite as dead as they thought they were. When it becomes apparent that Echo is in the crosshairs of poachers that she keeps thwarting, can Dodge keep her alive long enough to offer his forgiveness for their past?
This book made me want to fly to Alaska to see its wild beauty for myself, but I'm pretty sure I'd be one of those clueless tourists. I loved how Warren portrays Dodge as strong but broken-hearted on several fronts. I also appreciated Echo's backstory, and the brokenness she has never been able to overcome. Their second-chance love story rings all the more true for all the details Warren includes in their story.
Readers who enjoyed Warren's Montana Fire stories will enjoy this new spin-off series.. (Big sister Larke Kingston's story is told in book 7, Some Like it Hot.) There is lots of action for the adventure lovers, plenty of suspense for those who enjoy nail-biters, and a lovely second-chance love story (actually a couple of those....) As always, Warren hit this one out of the park. I highly recommend!
Cara PutmanIndianaAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5An Engrossing Man v. NatureMay 13, 2022Cara PutmanIndianaAge: 35-44Gender: femaleLove books that pit man against nature? Want characters with a rich background and conflict that makes them three dimensional and real? Then you will love Susan May Warren's latest novel sunrise. Set in Alaska, I felt like I was living there with the characters, and I deeply wanted Echo and Dodge to find their way back to each other even as all the odds were against them. A satsifying read.
Micky5 Stars Out Of 5Alaska and grizzlysApril 30, 2022MickyI enjoyed reading Sunrise and getting to see a little of Alaskan scenery. I learned what it could be like to live in Alaska in the wintertime. It may have put a little fear in me if I were walking in areas where grizzlys live. This was a story of forgiveness and misunderstandings. One quote I liked, "Forgiveness isn't for the person you're forgiving, Echo. It's for yourself. It's what you do to be set free." If we all could go by that when we feel we need to forgive someone, we would all be better for it. I liked seeing Echo and Dodge work out there problems. I look forward to the next book. I would recommend this book to all age groups.
Kirsten4 Stars Out Of 5Alaskan AdventureMarch 11, 2022KirstenThis was quite the Alaskan adventure, at first I was like why is it taking so long for the main characters to run into each other again but once they did hello second chance sparks! Between the dangerous rescue missions and the heavy family history for both the main characters there was a lot of hard hitting issues with forgiveness being the biggest one. 4.5 stars
