Carrie Slayton, a big-city society-page columnist, longs to write more serious news stories. So her editor hands her a challenge: She can cover any topic she wants, but only if she first scores the paper an interview with Finn Dalton, the notoriously reclusive author.
Living in the remote Alaskan wilderness, Finn has written a mega bestselling memoir about surviving in the wild. But he stubbornly declines to speak to anyone in the press, and no one even knows exactly where he lives.
Digging deep into Finn’s past, Carrie develops a theory on his whereabouts. It is the holidays, but her career is at stake, so she forsakes her family celebrations and flies out to snowy Alaska. When she finally finds Finn, she discovers a man both more charismatic and more stubborn than she even expected. And soon she is torn between pursuing the story of a lifetime and following her heart.
What I liked about this book was that it was a simple sweet romance book that focused on one plot. I found it to be a quick read which was different from what I have been reading lately.
Some parts were a little unrealistic for me such as falling in love in such a very short period of time,but then again it is a fiction book. I liked how we found out what Finn's life was like before he became a recluse. I liked how Carrie changed all that in a positive way and that the book ended on a happy note. I also could not believe how strong and independent Carrie was to follow through with her mission to find Finn and not to be frightened away when she discovered how he was living and his appearance too. It wouldn't be me doing what she did. I can see there being a sequence written for this book.
