Publisher's Summary

A USA-Today best-selling contemporary romance!

First in the Pacific Horizons series. In these connected romantic novels, characters facing tragedy, heartbreak, and painful family secrets are drawn to the wild beauty of the natural world. Breaching whales and howling wolves refresh their spirits, but only human love can heal their souls....

Haley knew that carrying her twin sister's baby would be a sacrifice.

She just didn't know how great.

Pregnant, overworked, and driven to the end of her rope by the neediness of the sister and widowed mother who depend on her, a high-powered young attorney seeks refuge with a week's vacation on the Alaskan coast. As overachiever Haley soaks up the serenity of her unexpectedly agreeable surroundings, she 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 Haley's heart begins to fester. When her pregnancy takes a frightening turn, she must examine what really matters - and rediscover the childhood dream she never realized she had lost.

Outstanding settings -- CA - Alaska

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.

Change, Choices, and True Love

I Loved everything about this story. I could visualize the beautiful scenery. The characters were realistic, and complicated like most family dynamics have their challenges, yet Love conquers in the end. I look forward to the next books in this series.

Alaskan dawn

While this was an enjoyable book, I just didn't fall in love with it. I liked the outdoors parts of the story but just couldn't connect with the characters.

feel good story

Another book I listened to on audible. This was one of those easy going books that just left me feeling good. I thought the character development was really good. The relationship between the main characters built naturally and sucked you into their story. No crazy plot twist or major angst or intrigue, but an overall nice story.

Cute Romance

I liked this cute little romance. Shows facing our fears and obsessions isn't as intimidating as we imagine and when something is right it's worth waiting for.

TOO MANY CURSE WORKS-can't finish this book.Regret

Would you try another book from Edie Claire and/or Coleen Marlo?

Not if there is cursing in it.

Would you ever listen to anything by Edie Claire again?

No more cursing audible books....wish I knew how to determine this before purchasing.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Coleen Marlo?

unknown

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

could have been ok...

Any additional comments?

Please tell me how to avoid cursing in the audibles.
