Ok after my whole author is larger than title mini rant what do I do when I go to the library and pick a random read? Why go for the Jillian Hart book BECAUSE I recognized her name… ok her name being BIGGER than the title. Have I ever mentioned I am horrible with names???
Anyway, Klondike Hero is a contemporary faith based romance set in Alaska. In fact, the main character Karenna has driven all the way to Treasure Creek in her wedding dress to start over after being dumped at the altar. All because of a rather marriage and romance driven article in a magazine depicting this Alaskan town as a haven for marriage minded. While not ready to dive in on marriage so soon after a crushing end to her previous, Karenna is ready to make friends and find a way to be productive in this gorgeous Klondike town.
Stranded and single she is helped by jaded bachelor Gage who is currently responsible for his brother’s infant son with the assistance of his grandmother. What better than for Karenna to become the nanny and help this family out with faith, hope and compassion.
There was one aspect of the story that confused me – the disappearance of the brother leaving his child for all intents and purpose abandoned. I understand it as a plot element but it just seemed so beyond immature and dangerous. But that was a personal preference for a slightly more thought out plot twist.
If you are looking for beautiful scenery descriptions and lovely character development this could be the book for you. Once again faith is a strong element as usual. This is on of the Alaskan Bride Rush series. I cannot say I would hunt out more of these but a random pull… could happen!
