Alaskan Homecoming is the 8th book in the Northern Light series, but the first one I have read. It can be read as a standalone without any problems at all. Rowan is visiting Alaska from Japan to help her grandma recover and to drive her to PT appointments. She happens to re-connect with her teen crush, Zack who has his hands full with a wildlife recovery effort and a custody battle for his sister. Throw in a thriving goat farm and cheese business, a side plot of a fundraiser and cooking competition, and you have rich descriptions to keep the pace rolling. I enjoyed the Alaskan setting, but had a bit of trouble with suspension of disbelief with how much our main character travels between Alaska, Japan, California and Las Vegas. At one point, she is worried with the prices of airfaire, after she has already jet setted all over in a short amount of time. That’s the only little plot disconnect I saw.
Rowan is in the process of learning to say no and live her own life. Her mother is a piece of work! The author writes some believable and deeply layered characters. There are also goats…love them! Harlequin Heartwarming series has once again delivered a clean read. Thanks to the author and publisher for the copy as part of the tour. If you are fan of Moose, goats, cheese, cooking or need a getaway to a remote locale, this is the book for you. A marriage of convenience with a sweet ending.
