A land of mountains and gems and minerals, the Last Frontier is a dream destination for this forensic geologist, who's hoping to leave behind a hectic work schedule and an engagement drained of romance.

The ship's security chief tries to rule the death a suicide, but Raleigh’s forensics background points to a much darker conclusion: Somewhere onboard, a ruthless murderer walks free.

Clairvoyant, drinking, disrespectful to elders, much talking about nakedness raucous life styled- this book has these and much more. It is missing anything relating to Jesus and how to make your life better by going to church. Instead of helping others, the author makes fun of all types of people. Disgusting to me and will not share with the teens in my family.

Just as merchant's daughter Felicity Mayson is spurned once again because of her meager dowry, she receives an unexpected invitation to Lady Blackstone's country home. Being introduced to the wealthy Oliver Ratley is an admitted delight, as is his rather heedless yet inviting proposal of marriage. Only when another of Lady Blackstone's handsome guests catches Felicity's attention does she realize that nothing is what it seems at Doverton Hall.

Steven James always tells stories with twists that keeps you guessing. His bad guys are really bad, his daughter is very typical of millinials, and there is a touch of family life that is enjoyable. There is no cussing and is tastefully done.

I guess I am so used to Beverly that I can not stand anyone who just has a lot of things happen to the characters to try to cause suspense and interest. This book was Ho hum for me. At least it was not full of cussing which so many think makes it interesting.

First there are too many expletives with God in it that is not usual in Christian books. Second, the girl is too helpless and unbelievable. 3rd, th sheriff would not let a woman hang on to him like that or kiss her hand. 4th the ending was exactly what I expected. Yawn

1. We call them snow machines.
2. You need to have snowshoes when hiking in snow off the trail.
3. Hypothermia takes longer to get over than you allowed your characters.
4. The rustic buildings could not be wired for everything they said everywhere.

5. Your narrator was not able to change her voice enough to allow for different characters.
6. You did not capture the uniqueness of Alaska villages on the Iditarod trail.
7. The plot unbelievable.
8. Where was the pipeline and how could just one person be able to destroy it?

History is about so much more than memorizing facts. It is, as more than half of the word suggests, about the story. And, told in the right way, it is the greatest one ever written: Good and evil, triumph and tragedy, despicable acts of barbarism and courageous acts of heroism.The things you've never learned about our past will shock you. For example, the reason why gun control is so important to government elites can be found in a story about Athens. Not the city in ancient Greece, but the one in 1946 Tennessee.

If it is used for youth as you say, then why the curse words? I as a Christian do not like to hear them. It is people with a lacking vocabulary that use them. Use some class. Otherwise I thought it was a good use of my time to hear it.
