Hard Luck, Alaska--a town that needs women!
Location: 50 miles north of the Arctic Circle. Population:
150--mostly men--but growing! Because the O'Halloran
brothers, who run a bush-lane service called Midnight Sons,
are heading a campaign to bring women to Hark Luck!
Charles O'Halloran--The oldest brother. Surveyor and not-so
-silent partner in Midnight Sons. Like his brothers, he has a
distrust of marriage in general--and a distrust of anyone
related to Catherine Harmon Fletcher, the woman who did so
much to destroy his parents' marriage.
Lanni Caldwell--She's the only woman Charles has ever fallen
for, the only one who might convince him to take the marriage
risk. They meet when she visits Hard Luck on a family matter.
But there's something Lanni hasn't told Charles--and doesn't
want to. She's Catherine's granddaughter...

This is book 2 of the series and although it stands alone as a good read - it is even better when read as a series (and in order). Charles has determined that he was going to stay single forever -- held hostage by his families past he will not allow himself to fall in love. After all look what love did to his father. Little did he know that when Lanni Caldwell walked into the picture -- his single days just wouldn't look so good. Is their hope for Charles and Lanni? -- Unfortunately Lanni has secrets of her own -- can Charles see past them or will they be the death of any type of relationship between them.
Charles doesn't know what hits him, the moment he lays eyes on Lanni Caldwell, he is smitten. He has never been in love before, and he really does not recognize the feeling. But the feeling of jealousy against the man who is accompanying her, is instantaneous. He wants to be the one walking besides her! Charles just thinks she is his brothers' assistant, and asks her out into the wilderness with him. There is such an instant connection and attraction between them.
But when Catherine's secret comes out, at his brother's wedding, and Charles sees how hurt his mother is by this, he doesn't want to have anything to do with Lanni anymore. Yes, he did tell her he loved her, but his mother's happiness is more important to him, than his own. Lanni is hurt very much by this, and she doesn't want to accept it is over between them, but Charles leaves her no choice.
Both Lanni and Charles are hurting, and even Lanni's brother tries to bring them back together. But only his mother can mend the rift between them, as she is the only one who knows what really happened, and why David married her, instead of the girl who was waiting for him back home in Alaska during WWII.
I enjoyed this book a lot, the emotions between all the characters just feel so real, it was like witnessing it firsthand. Lanni is 10 years younger than Charles, and he has some trouble with that, but Lanni really has not. When she finally founds out everything about the "feud" between her grandmother and the O'Hallorans she feels that her grandmother is the wronged party, and not the O'Hallorans. So why can't Charles get over it? They are not their parents or grandparents!
Charles is in love for the first time. Thanks to the example of his parents' disastrous marriage, he never was interested in finding a wife of his own. So when he fell for Lanni, he fell hard and fast. But he loves his mother, and he wants her to be happy, so he thinks he has to give up Lanni, or she will keep reminding his mother of those bad years. Yes, he sure is stubborn.
I am looking forward to reading more Debbie Macomber books (I do have dozens!) as they are just sweet contemporary romances that make you happy. This story is easy to read and well written, and you just have to fall for the scenery and the characters. Of course there is some catching up with the first couple, as their wedding is celebrated in this book, and I enjoyed that very much.

Full review on my blog, www.boeklogboek.blogspot.com
She's there after college, before her newspaper job and she's there to find out about her grandmother's house that is there vacant.
She is there to learn why the war between the families exist. Lenny feels cheated out of her heritage.
Charles thinks she's the new secretary and she will stand in for a bit while she cleans out her grandmothers house. The wedding of Abby and Sawyer is about to take place also.
She helps the kids gather flowers in the meadow for the wedding til a bear charges them...
Love the travel and the wedding and honeymoon while this book is mainly about Lenny and Charles it's great to catch up with others in the town.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
them living there in Alaska. Maybe more men will get a chance at marriage once these brothers are married and settled down. It must be
very interesting living where there is shortage of men when they finally start getting some women in the town. This is a fun read for anyone
who likes romance novels.
