When an article come out in a women's magazine and tells the world the men are looking for brides in Treasure Creek it may send women from all over rush to the small town to check out the available men, but it also leaves the lone Treasure Creek tour guide Casey Donner feeling low. Casey is described as no competition to the other women who want to try their hand at the men of Treasure Creek because they think of her as one of the boys.
Jake Rogers is looking for a why to show his 12 year old daughter that moving from the big city to Treasure Creek isn't the worst thing in the world. Jake grew up in Treasure Creek. When his ex-wife dies and leaves him custody of their daughter it is up to Jake to figure out how to raise her. A friend encourages Jake to take his daughter on a hike in Alaska's wilderness to let her get a feel of what Alaska is all about. With the best tour guide in town being Casey, Jake goes in search of the woman he barely remembers, but instantly is attracted to.
This is an well used concept with a fun Love Inspired twist. All of the handsome men in the magazine article are described as church going men. The faith angle is played up well. Each of the books are written by different authors and Terri Reed's story fit well with the others in the series. I liked Casey with her insecurities and all. She's a tomboy at heart and even the idea of wearing a dress scares her.
Good story to read if you are looking for a pick-me up.
Single father Jake Rodgers's daughter isn't happy about moving to tiny Treasure Creek, Alaska. So the former big-city businessman trades his suits for hiking boots and he books a father-daughter wilderness tour to acclimate her. But Veronica isn't buying it. Perhaps guide Casey Donner is just the person to help the girl appreciate the Klondike state's natural beauty. But could tomboy Casey, in her ponytail and cargo pants, also be what this city boy needs for a lifetime of love?
