"Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska" [Love Finds You Series, Book 3] by Tricia Goyer & Ocieanna Fleiss

My Book Summary : A little over two years ago, Ginny ran away from her fiancé, Brett, because she was too scared of letting him into her heart fully and because she wanted to chase her dreams of being a famous singer.

Now all her big dreams have come true but she is still not content with the way her life is. Therefore, instead of signing her most recent record contract she decides on visiting Brett in Glacier Bay, Alaska hoping that he'll be able to get her on the right track for her life. However, once she sees Brett again, gets involved with the town, takes care of his feisty Grandma, and reads some revealing love story letters leaving Glacier Bay might be the last thing on her mind...

My Book Review : 4.5 out of 5 stars, this is a tender novel about a woman trying to overcome her past while coming to terms with what and who she wants for her future. I was enraptured in this novel's double dose of love! Ellie & Clay's sweet and thrilling tale made a perfect backdrop to Ginny trying to overcome the hurt and heartache that she had become accustomed too. In addition, I thoroughly enjoyed the secondary characters throughout this novel from the mischievous Grandma Ethel to Ellie's playfully joyful Grandfather they were all quite fun to read about!

I recommend this novel to anyone who likes historical & contemporary romances!!

Teaser #1 ~ within Chapter 2
Dear Mr. Barnett,
I'm sorry. I fibbed when I wrote you. I mean the letter was a big fib, but I didn't fib that Papa needs a wife and I like the pretty one. But I was wrong to break the commandment and I'm sorry.
P.S. My dad made me write this. I'm not that sorry because I like Miss Ellie.
