Cooking at the lodge over the summer in the tiny, remote town of Ponder, Alaska, changed Josie’s life. She enjoyed making meals for the locals and visitors and going for walks with the handsome Palmer, but she must catch the last boat to Seattle before fall and her awaiting chef position. When Palmer proposes, she is so surprised and disoriented, she misses the boat. She is able to get a plane a few weeks later, but by then she realizes that she is in love with Palmer, and they grow ever-closer during their extra time ... Macomber’s descriptions of the Alaskan town and Josie’s culinary adventures add fascinating details to this thoroughly charming holiday romance.
Macomber brings her signature charm to this appealing tale of an aspiring chef and a taciturn, small-town sword maker. When lifelong Seattleite Josie Avery takes a short-term cooking job in remote Ponder, Alaska, she’s simply marking time until her job as a sous chef at a hot new Seattle restaurant begins. Meanwhile, lifelong Alaskan Palmer Saxon is perfectly content in his tiny lakeside community north of the Arctic Circle—until he falls head over heels for its temporary resident ... A quirky cast of supporting characters—particularly Palmer’s gruff, always-hungry sidekick, Jack—add color, and an expected happily-ever-after provides a resoundingly satisfying coda. This charmer will please Macomber fans and newcomers alike.
