Yukon Wedding

I did.enjoy this.clean but full of adventure. Book , would recommend it to any one for good reading and entertainment,
Quickly moving story. Very engaging and confirms I was born at the wrong time, wrong place. Loved this book.
This was an excellent beginning to the Alaskan Brides historical mini-series. The action kept me turning pages quickly in many spots, and I loved the main characters, Lana and Mack. The only part that didn't totally fit together for me was Lana's personality and some of what we learned about her first husband. I'm not sure the two of them really went together well, but she had supposedly been very happy with him. That's just a quick impression I got. I can't wait to read the rest of this series.

Wonderful book. The romance was thrilling, the characters absorbing and the story fast-paced with unexpected twists.

Lana Tanner thinks she will never find happiness again when her young husband is killed during the Gold Rush in Alaska. When Mack Tanner, her deceased husband's partner, keeps asking her to marry him for protection in the harsh, pioneer setting, she refuses many times. At last she agrees and finds love where she least expected it.
Oh, Allie Pleiter, you broke my brain. I don't "do" romance, but I cannot get enough of this author. Cannot. Get. Enough. This one takes place during the Yukon gold rush and involves a marriage of obligation/convenience that blossoms into much, much more. A good message about trust here, as well. Fun fun.
This book was an interesting Christian themed historical fiction novel which took place during the Gold Rush in Alaska. It was about a marriage of convenience but turned into something more. It was predictable, but heartfelt at the same time.

I received this book through GoodReads First Reads.

Just could not get into this one at all. Lana's character set my teeth on edge! I tried, struggled through 168 pages of the book before finally giving up.
Maureen Lang
This was just the kind of book I wanted to match my mood for a fun read! I loved it!
A satisfying historical romance. Good writing, and
well-drawn characters.
