Acclaimed Writing Team Pair Up Again for Gripping Historical Romance

Cassidy Ivanoff and her father, John, work at the new and prestigious Curry Hotel outside Mt. McKinley. While John will be expedition and wilderness exploration guide for the wealthy tourists, Cassidy has signed on as a cook's assistant. Both are busy as the hotel prepares to welcome the president of the United States on his way to drive in the golden spike to officially complete the railroad.
Allan Brennan travels to the Curry Hotel to be an apprentice of a seasoned Alaska mountain guide. Ever since his father's death climbing Mt. McKinley, he's worked to earn enough money to make the trek to the Alaska territory himself. His father's partner blames their guide for the death of his father, but Allan wants to find the truth for himself. He finds an unlikely ally in Cassidy, and as the two begin to look into the mystery, they suddenly find that things are much less clear, and much more dangerous, than either could ever imagine.

Library Journal Review

This historical romance series launch is set in the 1920s frontier lands of Alaska. Cassidy Ivanoff works at a prestigious hotel, and her father, John, who is part native Alaskan, is the local wilderness expert. A fatal accident on a climb up the mountain years ago still haunts John. Allan Brennan arrives in the area to get the whole story regarding his father, Henry, who died during the descent. The third man on the climb was Henry's business partner, who has always publicly blamed John for Henry's death. When Allan starts working with John, he wonders about the truth of what he has been told. Cassidy begins falling in love with Allan but realizes that he must first find his way to God before she gives him her heart. Strong narration by Christina Moore makes for a pleasant listen.
