Y coming to loveFate has other plans Josie misses the last boat out of town before winter sets in stranding her in Ponder and putting her dream job at risk As the holidays approach Josie and Palmer must grapple with the complications that arise when dreams confront reality and the Christmas magic that can happen when they put their faith in loveDebbie Macomber is at her best in this beautiful holiday story about the far journeys we travel to find a place to call homeLength 4 hrs and 50 mi. I have read and enjoyed many of Debbie Macomber s books but Alaskan Holiday wasn t one of my favorites I appreciated the book s message regarding the necessity of compromise in building a successful relationship but that was one of the only aspects of the story that really resonated with me For a couple of reasons I had a hard time connecting with the main characters Palmer and Josie First it felt as if I was starting in the middle of their story because by the time the book begins Josie and Palmer have already known each other for six months and are supposed to be in love However it s hard to get a sense of their connection when we don t get to see their relationship develop from the start They really didn t seem to have much in common and it was hard for me to figure out what they saw in each other Second I just couldn t relate to their desire to live in the middle of nowhere Alaska That isn t the author s fault and she did a good job in the second half of the book showing the positives of Ponder s way of life It s not a place I could ever imagine myself living though which made the whole idea of Josie s potentially settling there hard for me to swallowI also found a lot of the secondary characters to be annoying and overly pushy Jack in particular bothered me All he seemed to do was demand that Josie cook for him until he basically lost his mind and fell in love with Josie s mom at first sight Thank goodness that went nowhere He acted like a spoiled 5 year old boy than a 50 year old man If I were Josie I would have told Jack to take a hike long before he ever came to visit her in Seattle What was up with Jack tagging along on that trip anyway Who wants a third wheel on a trip to visit their girlfriend whom they haven t seen in weeksOverall this wasn t a terrible book but it wasn t great either Given a choice between Alaskan Holiday and one of Macomber s Cedar Cove novels I d choose Cedar Cove without hesitationARC provided by the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review

Ar the uiet and intense Palmer Saxon a famed master swordsmithJosie and Palmer become close during the long Alaskan summer days but Josie knows that come fall she'll be returning to reality and the career she's worked so hard for Palmer on the other hand would like nothing better than to make Josie his wife and to keep her in Ponder But Josie can't imagine abandoning her mother back in the Emerald City and sacrificing her career to stay in this isolated town not even for a man she's uickl. I ve only read one other title from Debbie Macomber which I didn t really care for either I think it s a compatibility issue on my enda bit too superficial for my personal taste but I can appreciate that other readers may have positive experiences which I genuinely hope for anyone reading this review It s a short love story with some sweet moments The audiobook narration felt a bit slapstick which may add some humor for readers who are enjoying the story but for me it was a bit annoying Note 2 stars means I thought it was just OK Doesn t mean that I hated it My favorite uoteNA

    I listened to the audiobook version of this book The actual story is a simple predictable formula romance that gets 25 stars There are two narrators on this audiobook Laurel Rankin narrates the chapters done from Josie’s point of view and Luke Daniels narrates from Palmer’s point of view Rankin does a good j
