Goodreads: After a failed dig in Honduras, aspiring archaeologist Casper Christiansen heads home to Minnesota to face his unresolved feelings for Raina Beaumont, the woman of his dreams. But when he arrives unannounced on her doorstep, he receives the shock of a lifetime: Raina is pregnant with someone else’s baby.
Heartbroken, especially when he discovers the identity of the baby’s father, Casper tables his dreams and determines to be dependable for once, helping his older brother, Darek, prepare the family resort for its grand reopening. Casper longs to be the hero of at least one family story, but a never-ending Deep Haven winter and costly repairs threaten their efforts—and the future of the resort.
Worse, one of Casper’s new jobs constantly brings him into contact with Raina, whom he can’t seem to forget. A tentative friendship begins to heal fresh wounds, but can they possibly overcome past mistakes and current choices to discover a future together?
Ope’s Opinion: This is my first book off my daughter Kristin of Kritters Ramlbings shelf. My challenge this year is to read one book a month off her shelf. Well, this is an awesome way to start the year. This book was very, very good.
If you have not read Susan May Warren, you should check her books out. The Christiansen family has been fun to follow. This is the fourth book. It is helpful to read the other three, but Susan May Warren does a really good job of catching you up, if this is your first book.
Raina and Casper are the center of this book, but the rest of the family has a lot going on. It was fun to see all the stories advanced.
I would have given this book five chairs, but I felt like Raina’s and Caspers on and off relationship drug out just a little long for me. It was obvious they were in love.
I am really looking forward to her next book on the Christiansen family.
Rating: Four Chairs – I like this book so much I know several friends to share it with.
