Bailey Craig promised herself she would never return to her hometown of Yancey, Alaska. She has a reputation and a past that the townsfolk will not forget. She has to return to bury a loved one who was killed in a plane crash. During the investigation, evidence comes to life that will require Bailey's expertise to unravel.
Cole McKenna faces dangerous rescues all the time; but facing Bailey again is another story. She broke his heart; but neither one of them is the person they were ten years ago. Both must get beyond the past, because the body count is rising.
This is the first book in the Alaskan Courage series. It is a wonderful story of faith, forgiveness, love, and moving on. The story line flows smoothly and my interest was maintained throughout. Bailey is the polar opposite of what she was as a teenager; but she has difficulty letting go of her past. Her conscience constantly tells her she is not good enough. Cole stills has the same feelings for Bailey, but she broke his heart once, will she do it again? The only problem I had with the story was how Bailey all of a sudden is in love with Cole. It's almost as if she isn't and then she is. If you like a good clean romance full of faith and good Christian values, this is the book for you. I will definitely be looking for the next book in the series.
