Start your review of Bachelor Remedy (Seasons of Alaska #5)
Bachelor Remedy was a fun read, that kept me up late trying to finish.

I loved the setting and think the cover perfectly captures this book. I also loved that Ally used alternative remedies, but willing to use traditional cures when needed.

The romance was interesting and as with most romance novels, if the couple would just be honest with one another so much stress and heartache could be avoided...though that probably wouldn't make for as fun a read.

If you enjoy clean contemporary romance novel

Ally's grandfather is a well known doctor and healer and he taught Ally a lot about medicine. Ally is a former army medic, now working as a hospital liaison in Rankins, Alaska. Ally combines traditional and alternative methods, so she can help people as well as she can, even though she knows this will give her difficulties. Not everyone is happy with her choices and recommendations. However, Ally's only aim is to do as much for others as possible and she can deal with the criticism. One of the s ...more

It was such fun to return to Rankins, Alaska, and visit with Hannah again – whom I struck up a fictional friendship with in A Family Like Hannah’s! In this fifth book of the series, we focus on Hannah’s brother Tag and the tiny-but-fierce woman who captures his heart.

First of all, be prepared to swoon over ruggedly handsome Tag… when you’re not wanting to reach inside the book and purse whomp him, of course. He loves kids and anytime he’s in a scene with a family member’s kiddos he transforms in

Let’s start with the one minor, minuscule thing about this book that bothered me a teensy, tiny bit. There were so many characters! BUT, I readily admit this is the first Carol Ross book I’ve read and since there are four Seasons of Alaska books before it, I’m sure if I’d started at the beginning, this family and residents of the town would be much more familiar to me. And though it was a lot to keep track of at times, there was no question who this particular story was about.

Ally Mowak is an ol

*sigh* There is so much going on with this book that I don’t know where to start. I had to remind myself that there are other books in the series but I was never confused. Ms. Ross lets you know what’s up with everyone so far. Now, I said there is a lot going on in the book, I mean between Ally and Tag. The storyline itself is a realistic portrayal of life in Alaska between the native people and the others. Of course, I’ve never been to Alaska but I can understand the differences and how it affe ...more

“How does it feel to be dirt free?”

“Honestly?” Tag James gave his cousin Bering a sober look and whooshed out a breath. “I totally lucked out. Can’t believe that private investigator didn’t find out about the insider trading or the body buried in my backyard. What an amateur.”

Having a large age gap between my husband and myself, it was fun reading about a couple with an even bigger one. Tag was 38 and Ally only 22. Of course, if that was the only difference between them, then the story wouldn’t

Reviewed at The Power of Words:

Bachelor Remedy is a sweet romance, as one would expect from the Heartwarming line, but there’s an unexpected complexity and depth in this story that I loved. Carol Ross is an excellent writer and her words flow smoothly across the page with wisdom and emotion. Family members from previous books in this series are involved, but this story easily stands alone.

Family relationships, the close bond Tag’s family shares, is one strength of this sto

4 1/2 STARS!

Amazingly descriptive scenery, down-to-earth characters and a plot that will hook you in no time! It's always a joy to visit the Rankins, Alaska setting that Carol Ross introduced us to several books ago, and this one continues the town saga we've grown to love. We're intrigued by Tag and Ally from the moment we start getting to know their back stories, and once they come together and sparks fly, it's easy to fall into their undeniable attraction. Fast paced and action packed, we get

Another Seasons of Alaska tale, in which Ally Mowak, a follower of her grandfather's approach to medicine that includes traditional approaches as well as conventional approaches, takes a new job at a local hospital. Unfortunately, her approaches, though well-received by the patients, are not accepted at face value by the head of the hospital or the pilot paramedic, Tag James, who has observed Ally in the field. Her former Army medic skills mesh well with his, but he prefers Western medicine, and ...more

Carol truly knows how to write a novel filled with so much love and happiness. It had such a fun ending to a story filled with character. I loved how Tag and Ally first met and the disagreements they had while you can see the sparks flashing between them. It touch my heart that both characters had a 16 year age gap and both felt the sparks but thought maybe the difference in their beliefs would conflict. I could relate with Ally and Tag's age difference since me and my boyfriend have a 19 year a ...more

I really liked that that Ally used modern medicine and alternative medicine. When something does not work. Why not try something that might? I also loved that she stuck to her feelings and did not care what others thought. She was true to her heritage and what her grandfather taught her. Tag was a nice guy, wanting to please his family. However when these two meet, they realize that their hearts have other plans and they might be made for each other. Ally is not the perfect date for a candidate, ...more

5+ STARS!!

This has officially become my all-time favorite book by this author. A familiar setting in Rankins, AK, but with a fabulously unique hero, heroine, and storyline. Both characters work in medical careers, but the heroine also embraces the controversial medical/healing practices of her native Alaskan heritage. One thing I've learned to expect from this author is the impeccable research. That research and a compelling storyline is what keeps me coming back. Well, that, a swoony hero and s

This book is a grand adventure featuring a small town in Alaska and a cast of characters who battle the elements and real estate developers who want to destroy the pristine beauty of the place they love. Tag James and Ally Mowak are well matched adversaries with strong personalities that cause them to butt heads when it comes to patient care, but their journey from enemies to more-than-friends is highly entertaining and full of misconceptions about each other that make for an entertaining storyl ...more

Bachelor Remedy

Ally and Tag make a really great couple but he is just not sure of the age difference. Love how he flies patients to other hospitals or from the site they got injured. Ally is the one from the hospital that goes with him. There is lots of drama from her boss and some suspense as to why besides of what he is saying. I enjoyed all the characters of the book but I believe Ally was my favorite. So mature, loving, determined to be herself.

Bachelor Remedy is the 5th book in the Seasons of Alaska series by Carol Ross. You get to visit with many characters and of course get to revisit some Alaskan small town country. You do have to pay attention to what you are reading. If you are a reader that skims as they read you may miss some great details of this book. Tag and Ally both are familiar with the medical field but Ally likes to stay true to her roots as well. They mesh so well together. This is an excellent read.

I did enjoy this book and romance for the most part. But the age difference was a bit weird for me. And I felt like their arguments could be petty/childish. Tag saying he understands ally's view/passion for alternative medicine then getting upset over it. I understand the part about his sister and her issues but he definitely overreacted a little bit and jumped to conclusions. But it was enjoyable overall.

I just loved this story to pieces. Couldn't put it down and read it in one day. Ally is the woman Tag just told his family he'd marry if he ever found her. He's a little hung up on her age though. But Ally is so much older than the calendar says. They deserve their HEA. Read this book to find out if they get it. The emotions and concerns grab a hold and won't let go.

This is a riveting read with good character development. Perfectly paced pulling you in from the start. Ally's medical knowledge comes from a love her grandfather taught her and the rest learned as an army medic. Tag being the oldest always looking out for his siblings but is a great pilot and that is how he first meets Ally. A great story to pick up and read.

This is the first romance novel I’ve read in almost 20 yrs.! I chose to read this book specifically because I see a Naturopathic Dr., so I thought I might be able to relate well to it. I found this lighthearted book’s plot to be interesting from beginning to end.
