Amy Simons' Alaskan heritage beckons her home from Seattle. Worried about her father and recovering from an accident, she books passage on a ship. While appearing physically weak, she's got the strength and knowledge to survive Alaska's harsh climate.
Onboard ship, she meets Braden Rafferty, a widower still in mourning. He's reluctant to take on the role of protector, but cannot ignore her plight.
The author dazzled me with her descriptions of Alaska, the native terminology, and the romantic/dangerous elements of the story. I found myself fully engaged from the get-go. "Golden Days" is my first Mary Connealy book, and won't be my last. Two thumbs-up for a fast-paced, romantic mystery.
