Courtney Spaulding spends each summer in her hometown of Heimel, Alaska, to find inspiration for her next novel.

Anita's Review 2

You know, it’s totally unfair to heroines everywhere when the heroes of our romance novels are as swoony as Mitch. I mean, patient, kind, creative, playful AND he has a great house. But wait, I got ahead of myself.
Courtney is a writer and also somewhat superstitious. She believes her inspiration for her novels comes from returning home to Alaska. She then goes to the location of the book to finish it. Mitch lives in her hometown and is just waiting for Courtney to decide to stay. There is an adorable tradition in their hometown that matches up single guys and gals during “Solstice Days” which is exactly the time that Courtney is visiting. Mitch sees a window of opportunity and decides to help things move along with Courtney.
(We now resume our love fest of Mitch – and what’s her name) I loved both of these characters. They are likable, down to earth, and normal. The plot of this novella is fresh and cute. I even looked online to see if there was such a thing as a “meltdown match”. (please be gentle when you call me gullible) This is a smile on your face, made my afternoon, quick read. Loved it.
