Bailey Craig was living a life she loved. She has a doctorate in Russian Studies and is a professor of Russian Studies at a university. When she receives a phone call letting her know that her aunt had passed away in a plane crash, Bailey was forced to return to Yancey, Alaska and face the past that she had been running from.
A past where her nickname was “Easy Lay Bay” and where she was known as a promiscuous teenager. She was a new Christian and a new person but, would the people of Yancey, Alaska accept that or even acknowledge that? Most of all, would Cole see that she wasn‘t the same person she was years before?
Cole McKenna is Bailey’s lost love from teenage years and she was doing her best to avoid him for fear of what he would think. She wasn’t the same person but, would Cole see that? Little did she know that she was going to have to team up with him in order to help solve murder mystery or that the plane her aunt was on, was sabotaged.
In a town with very little crime, things are starting to take a turn for the worst. As the body count gets higher, can Bailey and Cole keep their feelings for each other suppressed or will they rise to the surface as they work together to stop a murderer and find out the reason behind all the killing? Also, can Bailey stay in Yancey or will she run back to Oregon and forget that Yancey and Cole even existed?
This book is very well written and has a great balance of romance and mystery. It kept me wanting more and I couldn’t put the book down. Good thing, this is Book 1 in the Alaskan Courage series so there is more to come and I can’t wait!
