With a continuity, while each story is individual there is a plot that runs through all 6 books. This one is about finding the lost treasure of Treasure Creek. It's also usually best that you read the series in order, and not choose a random book to read ~ like I have done. Well, I won it in a box set of Love Inspired books a while ago. I was planning on getting the whole series before I started this one, but that hasn't happened, and I needed a Y title for a challenge I'm doing, so I decided to pick it up.
Actually, as continuities go, this was all right to read as a stand-alone. Enough information was given that although I wanted to know more about how the treasure hunt started, it didn't detract too much from the story. I do also want to read the others to find out more about Treasure Creek, but Nate and Bethany's story was strong and interesting enough to keep me reading without getting annoyed that I was missing too much of some other storyline.

Dr Bree Mathison is an itinerant doctor in Alaska, spending a month out in out of the way villages at a time. Jeremiah, a pilot and close friend of her late parents, flies her to and from her visits. This flight was to be just like all the others...except Jeremiah has a heart attack.
He manages to land the plane, but the fight for survival has only just started.
Bree needs to get through the night with a storm front moving in.
Fortunately for her Search and Rescue have been deployed. And David Stone is her handsome hero.
It soon becomes clear that the Alaskan wilderness is not the only foe she has.
Who has ransacked Jeremiah's house?
What are they after?
And can she risk losing her heart to her handsome hero, who keeps coming to her rescue, and whose steady presence is a comfort in her life?
I really enjoyed this story set during the Christmas season. I really loved the tree buying and decorating scenes. I also liked that it was set in Alaska (one of my favourite settings for stories) during the Christmas season (a favourite season of mine!) and that the series is focusing Search and Rescue (which is something I also like to read about).
I was very pleased to win a copy of this book from the Soul Inspirationz blog ~ another great book to add to my large Love Inspired Suspense collection!

A child pickpocket, a confidence man recently released from prison, and a Boston socialite with a big heart make an unlikely trio on the train a few dA child pickpocket, a confidence man recently released from prison, and a Boston socialite with a big heart make an unlikely trio on the train a few days before Christmas.
I loved how Lacy Williams brought this story to life. I could see and hear the crowds on the station platform, the crowded train as Erin manoevered with her many Christmas presents, and of the blizzard as it whirled and swirled...I could feel it's chill too! I could also hear Erin gentle voice as she read aloud from the gospels the Christmas story.
I loved Erin's big heart and how she reached out to others, I ached for Jesse as the guilt of his past hung heavy on his heart...and cheered as struck out for a better way, and I loved Pete, that rascal of a boy who just wanted to be noticed and loved for himself....more

I read a couple of years ago and loved it. Now a series of the children in that story is being written, and this is Ricky's story. I haven't read yet the stories of the other siblngs but they are on my wish list. However, I didn't feel I needed to have read the others to enjoy this one, although I'm glad I had read The Homesteader's Sweetheart as it provided me with a sense of "coming home" to familiar characters, which is something I love in a series.
Daisy is struggling with the emotional trauma as well as the physical limitations of having lost an arm in a terrible accident. She wants to hide and give up, until a tenderhearted cowboy draws alongside and encourages her to do the things she can, and creates aids for those things she can't. He doesn't push like her new stepmother, or tease like her new twin stepbrothers. He makes her feel safe, and useful, and whole, and well...like a woman.
Ricky is determined to help Daisy adjust to her new life. He didn't expect to fall in love, and especially not with Daisy. But the more he spends time with Daisy, the more he is drawn to her. Only he mustn't get too close, because he is harbouring a terrible secret...one that threatens to break Daisy's heart all over again.
I loved this story, and really liked that it was set during the Christmas season. I love redemption themes, and this one was well written. I understood where Daisy was coming from a lot of the time as she battled with lost dreams, a lost arm, and other people's looks and mutters, and really felt for her. I loved how Ricky came alongside to help and encourage, but didn't push. I also enjoyed his redemption journey. ...more
