Location: north of the Arctic Circle, Population: 150 (mostly men!) But the three O'Halloran brothers, who run a bush-plane charter service called Midnight Sons, are heading a campaign to bring women to town.
Brides for Brothers
Sawyer O'Halloran, the middle brother, isn't entirely in favor of this scheme. But he considers himself immune to any woman - even the lovely Abbey Sutherland. She's arriving in Alaska within days. However, there's a complication...or two. She hasn't told them she's arriving with kids!
The Marriage Risk
Like his brothers, Charles O'Halloran has a distrust of marriage in general - and of anyone related to Catherine Harmon Fletcher in particular. She's the woman who tried to destroy his parents' marriage. Too bad Lanni Caldwell, the only woman he's ever really fallen for, is Catherine's granddaughter.

I love to read and have used it as a way to visit other countries and other worlds. Audible allows me to fit more books into my busy schedu
Ok romances but not compelling. The conflict between the characters seemed somewhat lame. The reasons for the characters who loved each other almost immediately not coming together seemed a little unrealsitic. Something not modern about the stories. Seems like a romance that might have been published thirty or forty years ago.
This turned out to be a great book, I was pleasantly surprised, yes it was slightly predictable, but worth it. The narrator was great. He read for the entire series and did a fantastic job, his voice was not irritating, or too male for the female parts. I listened to all three volumes and was not disappointed.
I recently read Paper Towns by John Green and read by Dan John Miller. That book was "meh" but I liked the narrator. So I looked for other books that he read/performed and found Midnight Sons, Volume 1.
This book fully entertained me while on my drive back and forth to work. Somewhat predictable at times but then again we know how the story will end up. Nonetheless, I'm a sucker for romance novels and this books dishes it right up to you.
Now I'm on to volume 2.

"Midnight Sons Volume # 1" by Debbie Macomber was a wonderful romantic contemporary read. I thought this was a well written story that kept me turning the pages until the end. Would bringing women to Hard Luck, Alaska in the hopes of matchmaking with the various men that lived there was really something that I thought this author did well with. This novel was mainly Abby, Sawyer, Charles and Lenny story.
How will this turn out? This was a town of '150 people, no main roads, mostly men, bears and cold freezing weather. Now, who would want to come here? What could this Arctic Circle offer in the way of jobs and living conditions in this area? When a single mom decides to live Seattle and moves to Hard Luck...well I will say that it get pretty interesting. What will or could go wrong for her? This is where I will say you will have to pick up this good read to see how and what all will come to this story from this author. Be ready for a very interesting read. You will find yourself even laughing as you read through "The Midnight Son" novel. This author gives the reader a descriptions of 'magnificence, vastness, and small town friendliness.' I found the characters very rich, well developed and well portrayed giving the reader some good read.
If you are looking for a well written read that will keep your attention until the end, you have come to the right place. For "Midnight Sons" is a cute delightful romantic read that I would recommend to you as a good read.
