Tayler Hale is ahead of her time as one of the first women naturalists. She has always loved adventure and the great outdoors, and her remote job location also helps keep her away from the clutches of the man to whom she once made a foolish promise. It seems she must keep running, however, and in secret, her boss from Yellowstone arranges for a new job . . . in Alaska.
The popular Curry Hotel continues to thrive in 1929 as more visitors come to Alaska and venture into the massive national park surrounding Denali. Recent graduate Thomas Smith has returned to the hotel and the people he considers family. But when a woman naturalist comes to fill the open position and he must work with her, everything becomes complicated.
The summer brings unexpected guests and trouble to Curry. With his reputation at stake, will Thomas be able to protect Tayler from the danger that follows?
My thoughts: UNDER THE MIDNIGHT SUN is the third and final book in this dynamic dual's series, The Heart of Alaska, and fans will want to read In the Shadow of Denali and Out of the Ashes first as they have continuing characters. In this long-awaited story of the sweet bumbling boy fans have grown to love, Thomas has a few more challenges to face. Tayler is running, and with a masculine name in a time period where women were only beginning to find rights, she is hired where she wants to be but they assume she's male until she arrives. She has to prove herself which becomes harder when her past follows her. An awesome faith message, this book had me closing it with a sigh of contentment. I absolutely loved this whole series, but this book outshone them all. Bravo, Woodhouse and Peterson. I was given a copy free. All opinions are my own.
