The first of the Pacific Horizons novels by USA Today best-selling author Edie Claire!
Haley knew that carrying her twin sister's baby would be a sacrifice.
She just didn't know how great.
Overachieving attorney Haley Olson has always done the responsible thing. So when her twin sister, Micah, needs a surrogate mother, Haley willingly volunteers. Like most feats the capable workaholic attempts, her pregnancy goes perfectly...until the results of prenatal testing threaten to tear Micah's marriage apart.
Pregnant, overworked, and driven to the end of her rope by the neediness of the sister and widowed mother who depend on her, Haley seeks refuge with a week's vacation on the Alaskan coast. As she soaks up the serenity of the unexpectedly vast and beautiful wilderness, Haley finds something else she doesn't expect: deep feelings for the wildlife-loving boat captain who reminds her how to laugh.
With her unborn niece or nephew on the way and thousands of miles of ocean between their lives and careers, Haley and Ben settle for a friendship. But back home in California, the emptiness in her heart refuses to heal, and when her pregnancy takes a frightening turn Haley must examine what really matters - and rediscover the childhood dream she never realized she had lost.

Thank goodness for something NOT based in NYC. Would have enjoyed a few local references in Newport Beach. Overall relaxing read if you like an occasional Hallmark-moment story. A bit too many eyes that have a mischievous or sparkling twinkle or that twinkled devilishly and a mouth that twitched at the corner (in an attempt to not smile I guess). Narrator excellent except for the mother's voice.
