4.5 Star Debut

Debut author Laurie Wood transports readers to the barren and dangerous Canadian tundra while delivering a story that doesn’t let up from the first page to the final one.

Kira and Lukas have a history—first loves who never spoke again after Kira walked away five years ago. With the death of her brother, their paths cross again. As Kira finds herself fighting for her life—multiple times—Lukas is determined to protect her (and his own heart). The elements, rogue polar bears, and more

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK
This is a clean romance read with some Christian themes throughout the book. Kira Summers makes her home in Northern Canada and she works as a polar bear scientist. On the other hand Lukas Tanner moves to Churchill and works at his own Guiding Star Enterprises, giving tour guides throughout the snowy land of Canada. Even though Lukas has been there for five years, he and Kira’s paths have never crossed.

Lukas and Kira has a past outside of Nothern Canada, there is some bac

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

This is a clean romance with Christian themes and principles woven throughout. It is a quick, easy-to-read book, and since it is the first book in a series, it's always great to start by reading the first book. I say that because I don't always have that luxury when reviewing books. But this one I did.

I enjoyed the fact that the readers were brought immediatel

Ahhh ... this was a great book. Mystery! Suspense! Dogsleds! Canadian spelling! LOL. (I went to Alaska in 2012, and really wanted to go dogsledding. The cruise excursion was canceled due to weather, but one day I'll get to do it!)

The book certainly starts off with a bang, and really doesn't let go until the end. Prepare yourself for some laser-focused reading time! (Life? What's life?)

Wood is a new-to-me author, but Northern Deception definitely makes me want to read more of her books.

The one is

Northern Deception takes place in a small town in northern Canada, and captures the beauty of the little-travelled destination. It brings together facets of romance, suspense, humour, and hope, into an intricate and beautiful story.
Kira Summers is a relatable and intense character, and Laurie Wood is able to make you feel exactly what she is feeling. The strength, pain, and victory that Kira possesses is remarkable, and she is able to be those things with an attitude to boot!
