Publisher's Summary

Owen Christiansen has been in a downward spiral since an injury ended his NHL career. But a job on an Alaskan crabbing boat offers a fresh start and maybe even a shot at romance with Elise "Scotty" McFlynn, the captain's daughter.
Used to being one of the guys, to never relying on anyone, Scotty doesn't believe in happily ever after - especially with someone like Owen. Her instinct is confirmed when Casper Christiansen arrives to drag his prodigal brother home, bringing with him a truckload of family drama - and, even worse, the news that Casper is wanted for questioning in connection to a crime back in Minnesota. But Owen is more than the sum of his mistakes, a truth both he and Scotty discover when she escorts both brothers to Deep Haven as part of her new job on the Anchorage police force. Thrust into an unfamiliar world of family, faith, and fresh starts, Scotty begins to see potential for a happy ending if she's brave enough to embrace it.


What the Critics Say

"Warren has shaped a beautifully dynamic romance that teaches the value of family and forgiveness through a modern-day prodigal-son story of redemption." (Publishers Weekly)

Adventure! Imperfect people, Family, Faith & Love!

Adventure, Imperfect people, Family, Faith & Love! Hang on to your spot, this is going to be an adventurous family, love filled ride. What's going to happen next? Who's going to survive? Who's not? Susan May Warren does it again and again with the Christiansen family stories. You will not be able to put this down. I bought and read the book last year. Then I had to reread it, so I also got it on Audible. It's so good you really want to read or hear it again, and again.

A Christiansen Family Series Marathon

I listened to this entire series this week. A real family experience. God meeting each person individually and drawing them to him with problems, anger issues, adventures, and self imposed reasons not to let God in. Our plans versus Gods plans and Faith to bring them to pass The stories and narrators completely drew me in. I didn't want there to be an ending. Take a leap and see God move in this big rambunctious family. You will be glad you did!
