Summary
"An uplifting Christmas tale, set in the Alaskan wilderness, about finding love where it's least expected...Before beginning her new job as sous chef at one of Seattle's finest restaurants, Josie Stewart takes on a six-month position cooking at a lodge in an Alaskan lake town. It's only temporary--or so she thinks, as she becomes a valued part of the local community, falling in love with the people who call Klutina Lake home. But one Alaskan man, in particular, stands out among Josie's new friends: Palmer Saxon, a quiet, intense sword craftsman, whose very existence forces her to question whether her heart wants to return to Washington at all--or make Alaska her home"--

Booklist Review: "Cooking at the lodge over the summer in the tiny, remote town of Ponder, Alaska, changed Josie's life. She enjoyed making meals for the locals and visitors and going for walks with the handsome Palmer, but she must catch the last boat to Seattle before fall and her awaiting chef position. When Palmer proposes, she is so surprised and disoriented, she misses the boat. She is able to get a plane a few weeks later, but by then she realizes that she is in love with Palmer, and they grow ever-closer during their extra time. The long-distance relationship is hard with her very demanding job, inspiring Palmer to head to Seattle. Palmer's proposal is funny and awkward, and the path to their happily-ever-after has surprising yet realistic twists. Macomber's descriptions of the Alaskan town and Josie's culinary adventures add fascinating details to this thoroughly charming holiday romance.--Amy Alessio Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Macomber (Cottage by the Sea) brings her signature charm to this appealing tale of an aspiring chef and a taciturn, small-town sword maker. When lifelong Seattleite Josie Avery takes a short-term cooking job in remote Ponder, Alaska, she's simply marking time until her job as a sous chef at a hot new Seattle restaurant begins. Meanwhile, lifelong Alaskan Palmer Saxon is perfectly content in his tiny lakeside community north of the Arctic Circle-until he falls head over heels for its temporary resident. Creating picture-perfect small towns packed with salt-of-the-earth characters is Macomber's forte, and her foray into the wilds of Alaska is no different as she explores Josie and Palmer's deep feelings for each other. Macomber takes the risky step of beginning the novel with Josie declining Palmer's marriage proposal, making it work by skillfully illustrating how life can surprise and delight even the most planned-out of futures-and how dreams can backslide into nightmares. A quirky cast of supporting characters-particularly Palmer's gruff, always-hungry sidekick, Jack-add color, and an expected happily-ever-after provides a resoundingly satisfying coda. This charmer will please Macomber fans and newcomers alike. (Oct.) c Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
