Sweet Romance At Its Finest ~ Love Finds You in Glacier Bay Alaska by Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss ~ Review


One of my new favorites for the LFY line, this sweet romance had a gentle smoothness to it that just stuck with me, even during the period of time I had to set it aside to complete other reviews on deadline.
          
What I loved so much? It wasn’t your typical formulaic romance. The characters have already gone through their struggles and are now coming back together. Which is often unheard of in today’s romance genre. And it worked. So completely worked. Yes, the tension was still there as well as the romantic “sizzle” without the roll-your-eyes-get-over-it factor.
           
Combining Ginny and Brett’s story with a love story through letters from the past was pure genius. Letter writing is hard to make intriguing in a novel. It can often lack the tension it needs to keep the reader interested, but these veteran authors pulled it off.
           
It’s one of those stories that is so smooth. So seamless you forget that you’re really reading. The setting becomes a character, Brett’s Gram is a complete dear and what a fun surprise it was at the end of the story to find out who she really is. (shh, but I won’t tell for spoiler alerts)
          
  It’s one of the best gentle romances I’ve read in a long time and I’m for sure and certain adding this one to my already maxed-out collection on too-small shelves.
            
This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers through Litfuse for my copy to review.

More about the novel....

Singer Ginny Marshall is one signature away from the recording contract of her dreams-a deal that would guarantee success for the former foster child, who still struggles to bury the memories of her painful childhood. But Ginny needs advice from the one person who will look out for her best interests-her former fiancé, Brett Miller. She travels to the remote town of Glacier Bay, Alaska, where the town's colorful characters and stunning scenery provide respite from LA's pressures.

In Glacier Bay, Ginny discovers a box of old letters and is swept up in the love story between Clay, an early missionary to Alaska Territory, and Ellie, the woman who traveled there to be his children's governess. When Ginny is reunited with Brett in Glacier Bay, will she discover-as Ellie did-that healing and love are sometimes found in the most unexpected places?
