Always on My Mind by Susan May Warren
From the publisher:
After a failed dig in Honduras, aspiring archaeologist Casper Christiansen heads home to Minnesota to face his unresolved feelings for Raina Beaumont, the woman of his dreams. But when he arrives unannounced on her doorstep, he receives the shock of a lifetime: Raina is pregnant with someone else’s baby.
Heartbroken, especially when he discovers the identity of the baby’s father, Casper tables his dreams and determines to be dependable for once, helping his older brother, Darek, prepare the family resort for its grand reopening. Casper longs to be the hero of at least one family story, but a never-ending Deep Haven winter and costly repairs threaten their efforts—and the future of the resort.
Worse, one of Casper’s new jobs constantly brings him into contact with Raina, whom he can’t seem to forget. A tentative friendship begins to heal fresh wounds, but can they possibly overcome past mistakes and current choices to discover a future together?
This is one of Susan May Warren's Christiansen Family novels. If you have not read any previous novels in this series I recommend that you do. You can still enjoy the story and Warren's writing style but I think you will get more out of it if you read the other books in the series before this one.
Susan May Warren's writing draws you into the characters and storyline. As a reader I felt drawn to Casper and Raina from the beginning of the book and wanted to see how things would work out. However, the story is not just about Casper and Raina but about others in the Chrisiansen family. The book even ends on a "cliff-hanger" about Amelia which will make the reader want to read the next book.
This book has adventure, drama, romance, and strong family bonds. Readers will enjoy this book and the series for many reason.
I received this book free from Tyndale Publishing in exchange for my honest review.
