Overview

First in the Pacific Horizons series of romantic women's fiction by USA-Today bestselling author Edie Claire!

Haley knew that carrying her twin sister's baby would be a sacrifice.
She just didn't know how great.

Overachieving attorney Haley Olson has always done the responsible thing. So when her twin sister Micah needs a surrogate mother, Haley willingly volunteers. Like most feats the capable workaholic attempts, her pregnancy goes perfectly... until the results of prenatal testing threaten to tear Micah's marriage apart.

Pregnant, overworked, and driven to the end of her rope by the neediness of the sister and widowed mother who depend on her, Haley seeks refuge with a week's vacation on the Alaskan coast. As she soaks up the serenity of the unexpectedly vast and beautiful wilderness, Haley finds something else she doesn't expect -- deep feelings for the wildlife-loving boat captain who reminds her how to laugh.

With her unborn niece or nephew on the way and thousands of miles of ocean between their lives and careers, Haley and Ben settle for a friendship. But back home in California, the emptiness in her heart refuses to heal, and when her pregnancy takes a frightening turn Haley must examine what really matters -- and rediscover the childhood dream she never realized she had lost.

About the Author

No matter the genre, USA-Today bestselling novelist and playwright Edie Claire strives to infuse all her writing with both warmth and humor. Her family-friendly Leigh Koslow cozy mystery series, a favorite of animal lovers that was originally published in 1999, was reborn in 2012 to become a Nook Top-5 bestseller. Her romantic novels range from women’s fiction with romantic elements to a blend of romance and mystery, beginning with her traditionally published contemporaries, the award-winning Long Time Coming and Meant To Be (now a Nook #2 bestseller), and continuing with her exciting new series of interconnected romantic novels, Pacific Horizons, whose characters follow the migration of the humpback whales to some of the most gorgeous locations on earth.

Edie has worked as a veterinarian, a childbirth educator, and a scientific/technical writer. A mother of three, she lives in Pennsylvania and aspires to become a snowbird.

I loved this book! The characters were the kind you cheer for and want everything to work out well for them. The chemistry written between the two main characters, to me, was perfect, exactly what I'd want for myself. They also take you through a range of emotions from laughter to sadness, back to laughter, to thought provoking - (i.e. what would I do in that situation). The scenic descriptions brought Alaska to life, bringing back memories of my own trip there, and making me want to go back to experience what Haley saw - from the amazing snow capped mountains to the whale watching to the view from her cabin porch. This book was better than any typical romance book. It was about relationships, family, principles, and following your passion. I'll definitely be reading this one again.

I enjoyed the storyline as well as the descriptions of Alaska. Also liked the fact that the romantic scenes were not so descriptive and left it simple.

This was a fun romance with serious environmental undertones. Though a clean book, there were enough romantic undertones to keep the tension flowing

Loved this story from beginning to end. However, I think Ben and Haley should have a baby. I was sad they said they didn't want any of their own!
