Fleeing to Alaska is the only option for Leah Marks after witnessing a murder. Afraid for her life, the legal investigator hopes a remote cabin will be a safe shelter. But the killer has tracked her to Mountain Cove. As he chases her into snow-packed Dead Falls Canyon, an avalanche buries them both. Saved by daring search and rescue specialist  Cade Warren, Leah longs to tell him the truth. But how can she, without bringing even more danger into Cade’s life? Especially when they discover the killer is very much alive and waiting to take them both down.

Thoughts:

“In the Alaskan wilderness, love and danger collide.”

BURIED is an exciting Alaskan adventure! Elizabeth Goddard’s imagery grabbed me and pulled me into the story on the very first page! The drama unfolds quickly and kept me engaged throughout the book. I especially enjoyed the setting and the search and rescue aspects of the story, which are described with great vividness and detail.

Full of danger, intrigue, and romance, BURIED will delight fans of romantic suspense! I loved this story and look forward to more adventures in Mountain Cove!

A Grand Teton Sleigh Ride

A Grand Teton Sleigh Ride by Elizabeth Goddard & Lynette Sowell

Wyoming’s spectacular mountains have drawn many, from trappers to ranchers to skiing enthusiasts. This Christmas, spend the holidays with the Covington family, who have called Wyoming home for generations. Rough, bristly rancher Zebulon sets his sights on eastern lady Belle Murray. Forward-thinking Emily would rather stay a dog musher than become a bride. Outfitter Sam wants to make his name in Wyoming, not say, “I do.” Hayley’s quest for her father’s approval goes sour when she takes an interest in a local ski bum. Will four festive sleigh rides rein in romance?

Thoughts:

Love in the Wind by Elizabeth Goddard

Synopsis:

Sailing is Maddie Cramer’s escape.

Now she’s counting on it to bring her closer to the biological father she’s just met. But her chances of winning the regatta—and his approval—are in jeopardy unless she can find a new crewmate. Enter Grady Stone, a perfect fit for Maddie’s crew in more ways than one.

Maddie and Grady grow close as they spend time together on the water. But Maddie, wary of emotional entanglement, guards her heart closely.

Thoughts:

Love in the Wind is a delightful love story!  I loved the main characters, Maddie Cramer and Grady Stone.  They both had such strength, but their pasts left them vulnerable as well. Their emotional and romantic journey felt very natural and was a pleasure to read. I also enjoyed the beautiful setting and the sailing that was wonderfully detailed.  Love in the Wind is a great story and a perfect afternoon read!

Love in the Air

Love in the Air by Elizabeth Goddard

Review:

Nikki Alexander’s love of hot air balloons began in childhood.  Her father created a successful hot air balloon ride business before his death, a business Nikki is struggling to keep afloat.  Tragedy has left Nikki with overwhelming family responsibilities and important decisions to make.

Kyle Morgan left Albuquerque, New Mexico, three years ago believing he would never return.  However, guilt and unresolved feelings have brought him home asking for a second chance.   

As Nikki makes plans for her future, someone lurks in the shadows trying to sabotage her business.  Kyle works to regain Nikki’s trust while protecting her and her business.  As Nikki offers Kyle her forgiveness, she realizes that she has also given him her heart. 

LOVE IN THE AIR is a beautiful story of romance, peppered with suspense.  I enjoyed the relatable characters, who through faith, hope, and love, overcame the obstacles in their relationship.  Elizabeth Goddard does a wonderful job describing the sights and sounds from the basket of a hot air balloon.  I thoroughly enjoyed this delightful book and look forward to reading more from Elizabeth Goddard!
