My rating: 2 stars / It was okay
Gwyn Hillerman loves being a nurse at her father's clinic on the beautiful Alaskan frontier. But family life has been rough ever since her mother left them, disdaining the uncivilized country and taking Gwyn's younger sister with her.
In Chicago, Dr. Jeremiah Vaughan finds his life suddenly turned upside down when his medical license is stripped away after an affluent patient dies. In a snowball effect, his fiance breaks their engagement. In an attempt to bury the past, Jeremiah accepts Dr. Hillerman's invitation to join his growing practice in the isolated Alaska Territory.
Gwyn and Jeremiah soon recognize a growing attraction to each other. But when rumors of Jeremiah's past begin to surface, they'll need more than love to face the threat of an uncertain future.
I usually enjoy stories set in the Alaskan frontier more than this. I felt like the setting was the most interesting part of the story. The characters are two-dimensional and there is little chemistry between Gwyn and Jeremiah. The villain's point of view is shared throughout the book which is written over the top in my opinion. After finishing the book I was left with an overall feeling of disappointment.
