Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska, is their latest offering, penned by award-winning author Tricia Goyer and multi-published Ocieanna Fleiss.
From the back cover: 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?
LFY in Glacier Bay is a well-crafted love story written with care and attention to detail. The authors obviously delighted in Glacier Bay, which they researched on site, and their affection for this place is imbued in every page. The writing by these two experienced authors is as fine as you’ll find in a Christian romance. As I read the book, I often paused to savor a particularly well-turned phrase (“The life vest captured the pounding of his heartbeat…”). The story is peopled by kind, Christian characters—and a few who aren’t. If you love Christian romances and you’re looking for an easy escape to an intriguing time and place, you’ll find what you’re looking for in Love Finds You in Glacier Bay, Alaska.
4/5 stars—an easy escape
