Josie Avery just graduated from culinary school. In a career-making break, a renowned chef hires her to help open his new restaurant in her native Seattle. The building won’t be ready until the fall so Josie takes a summer job cooking in a lodge in the community of Ponder, Alaska.

Palmer Saxon and Josie end up spending every waking minute together during Josie’s time in the small town. The night before Josie leaves for Seattle, Palmer proposes. Josie doesn’t completely shut him down but she doesn’t say yes either. They decide to pursue a long-distance relationship and re-evaluate later.

I’m not really the audience for this book but I wanted a Christmas-y audiobook. The options at my library were either this standalone romance or other romances or cozy mysteries that were roughly number 52 in a series. (Yes, that’s an exaggeration but not as much as it should be.) Standalone romance it was, even though I’m not really a romance reader.

This was cute enough but completely forgettable to me. Josie and Palmer literally relate their respective sides of the summer courtship while they’re preparing for their final evening together. The author didn’t show the relationship building so I just had to accept that they cared for each other. It was entirely predictable but other readers might like predictability in a holiday book.

My feminist hackles rose when it started to feel like Josie and the other women in the book were going to give up their own dreams and career plans for marriage. I must admit that I was placated by the ending though.

And really, who allowed a book about Palmer from Ponder to get published? I had to think about whether I was hearing information about the town or the man more often than you would expect.

The narrators overall did a great job. Laurel Rankin may have been a bit too earnest and Luke Daniels may have tried too hard to liven up a lackluster book, but those are fairly minor quibbles.

Romance readers and those who take comfort in familiarity and predictability will like this more than I did. It’s sweet enough and a quick Christmas read. I’m simply not the audience for this book so I shouldn’t have even checked it out from the library. ( )

Super cute story about relationships, comprise, and an awesome look into what it must be like to live in the wilds of Alaska. Definitely a fun read, all likeable characters. My favorite has to be Jack, he almost needs his own story!

This review is based on an ARC from NetGalley, courtesy of the publisher. All opinions are my own. ( )

It won’t win any literary awards, but this is exactly what it says on the tin, and exactly what I felt I needed - a nice, light-hearted (slightly cheesy) romance. ( )

Palmer, Josie, and who can forget Jack, along with the whole of Ponder, Alaska, steal into your heart like a cold wind on a dark winter night, illuminated by the brilliance of the Northern lights.

What begins as a job between jobs turns into the possibility of something more for Josie when connections are made and relationships are forged that were never expected. The romance is demure, but their hearts are fully invested, even if some are slower than others to admit that simple fact...and surprise, it's not the guy! But I digress...we've a bumbled proposal, a lack of shared worries to complicate things, and the classic appearance of the green-eyed monster when there was really no need to worry that keep the story interesting...though I for one was happy enough with the long-distance romance that seemed meant to be, but the HOW was up in the air!

This was only my second read of this author's work, but I definitely enjoyed it. A great read this time of year or any for that matter...and a great big thanks to dear old mom for the Christmas gift (nice pick!)! Recommended for Contemporary Romance fans as well as Women's or General Fiction.

What a fun book! And the two readers did an excellent job. i had read some reviews concerning this book that stated the characters had not been fleshed out enough. I did not find that at all. I could picture in my mind Josie, Palmer and of course, Jack. My only negative comment concerning the book is when Jack meets Josie's mom. That was a tad overkill. Personally, I just couldn't see Jack acting THAT crazy....some , yes, but not to that extreme. ( )
