Book Review: Love Finds You in Glacier Bay by Tricia Goyer and Ocieanna Fleiss

About the Book:  Singer Ginny Marshall is one signature away from the recording contract of her dreams-a deal that would guarantee success for the former foster child, who still struggles to bury the memories of her painful childhood. But Ginny needs advice from the one person who will look out for her best interests-her former fianc√©, Brett Miller. She travels to the remote town of Glacier Bay, Alaska, where the town's colorful characters and stunning scenery provide respite from LA's pressures.

In Glacier Bay, Ginny discovers a box of old letters and is swept up in the love story between Clay, an early missionary to Alaska Territory, and Ellie, the woman who traveled there to be his children's governess. When Ginny is reunited with Brett in Glacier Bay, will she discover - as Ellie did - that healing and love are sometimes found in the most unexpected places?

My thoughts:  I usually enjoy books that feature two stories interwoven together, but I normally find that I am much more involved in one of the stories than the other and tend to almost skim through the "boring" one to get to the "good" one.  No such problem here!  I found both storylines equally compelling and entertaining.

The authors do a fantastic job of conveying the history of Glacier Bay and the surrounding areas in an interesting way and do such an amazing job describing the scenery that you can't help but want to go visit someday.  The majestic remoteness would definitely be something that would cause you to depend on God and worship our incredible Creator, perhaps in a way that other places simply wouldn't.  All creation is beautiful of course, but the sweeping majesty of the wilds of Alaska would truly be a sight to behold I think!

Oh, and I LOVE Brett's grandma!

This is the second book in the "Love Find You in..." series and I'm loving them so far!

Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for organizing this tour and providing me with my complimentary review copy.
