"A stirring contemporary romance"
In Colorado, journalist Kari Churchill arrives late for
her helicopter trip into exploring Elk Creek Canyon where
her famous author father died. The owner-pilot Nick
D'Angelo refuses to take her until the morning. After he
leaves, she persuades his sister Adriana to take her.
However, a storm disables the aircraft and only because of
the terrific efforts of Adriana do the pair survive. Nick
blames himself for not assuring his sister did not do
something foolish and even somewhat blames his "customer".
At the hospital, Adriana's father Sam tells Kari she can
help by working at the lodge, which will be shorthanded.
Sam decides Kari is perfect for his son who raises a teen
by himself. As Sam, his wife, Adriana, and Tessa play
matchmaker, Kari and Nick fall in love. However, he does
not want a spouse though Kari is very good with Tessa and
she does not believe in marriage due to her parent's
This is a stirring contemporary romance starring two enemy
combatants in this case hiding their attraction.
Outflanked by the D'Angelo matchmaking brood they fall in
love. The cast makes the tale as each prime player
including Nick's family members come across with unique
personalities. Though the lead couple runs from
commitment having bad experiences, they do not stand a
chance when everyone else knows they belong together.
Throw in a lot of teen angst that only Kari can empathize
and readers have a fine family drama.
