This book was written in 1982 and because of that the reader will find things a bit primative - namely no GPS, no cell phones, and no mention of global warming.

Definitely not one of Janets better ones. There was no real story and the characters were so blah...waste of time

Romance set in Alaska. Shannon flies to Alaska to marry her bush pilot fiance, Rick. When she arrives Rick is missing and she enlists Cody Steele's help in finding him. Predictable, quick read.

Hero was a sweet guy who helped her locate her fiancée. It's funny how she said I know he is alive and then Does not marry fiancé!!! It was just a nice story. Very sweet.

Short story

This story was a little bit too short for my taste. It didn't go below the surface if you know what I mean
