Fun read with charming characters for the most part , building plot that keeps you engaged, and a satisfying ending The sex scenes were satisfying and tastefully done Very refreshing read for a jaded palette. Great story and characters..who doesn t want to visit Alaska after reading it Loved the sassy characters,could picture all of it The good and the bad, glad there were some twists and turns along the way. Nicely doneEnjoyed this story, even though I am not normally a fan of fall in love in two days kind of books Suspense was predictable but well written Dale was great hero and Allanna strong female character Loved the family too Would love to see Megan in Alaska story too Fun readGood story line, good characters The scenery descriptions makes me want to pack up and head to Alaska even though I don t like the cold. Tears streamingHaving been to Alaska several times, I understood Alannas connection There was a bit too much adult relationship but very well writtem Review posted on Kindles WineDale Ramsden aka sled dog16 is an Iditarod winner from Alaska who hasn t ever found the right woman He is content with his life in Alaska, his quirky family and friends, and his best friends, his sled dogs However, it becomes difficult for him to stay satisfied when an online friend finds a way into his heart.Enter Alanna Cormac aka Gaia girl706 , a career woman from the Big Apple She is beautiful but lacks self confidence where men are concerned She excels at writing about nature for Gaia magazine, and when a potential promotion requires her to write the story of her life, she is drawn to her online friend s homeland of Alaska Is it Denali or sled dog16 that is calling her name She isn t quite sure.An antagonistic email dialogue sets the stage, and you immediately want to know whether this online friendship of otherwise strangers could possibly lead to something A work opportunity for Gaia girl706 and two words from sled dog16 Just come set it in motion Christine DePetrillo took great care with the meet and had my heart pounding Neither Dale nor Alanna had any expectations, but they were immediately comfortable in each other s presence, and their online friendship blossoms into in a beautiful way These two characters have never given love a chance, yet fate had other plans for them.Dale became Alanna s personal tour guide of Alaska and Denali National Park He finds a way into her heart through nature and by sharing with her his love for mushing, his dogs, and his hilarious family DePetrillo builds a set of wonderful characters to surround Dale and Alanna From the librarian to Dale s father, you can expect to enjoy their contributions to the book.As I read the book, I kept wondering how a sled dog racer from Alaska and a writer from New York could figure out a way to make their separate lives become one They had some soul searching to do and decisions to make that would be life changing You ll have to read for yourself to see if you will be crying tears of sadness or joy for this beautiful couple No spoilers in this review Bottom Line I loved this book It was an easy read that had me captivated from the first to the last email conversation and everything in between It was a book I wanted to read faster to find out what was going to happen, yet read slower to make it last longer If you love nature and wildlife, you ll love this book If you love relationships with strong family ties, you will adore the Ramsden family If you appreciate characters that have friends that will be a voice of reason, you will love Alanna s friend Meg I look forward to reading from DePetrillo Rating B 4 stars Review copy courtesy of the author publisher in exchange for an honest review 4.5stars actually also e book not kindle Having never been to Alaska, I have no idea if the writer took liberties or not I do have an idea about how lovingly it was described it almost made me want to go Not only was this soft, easy to get into romance about two people it was about romancing Alaska, nature and living in harmony with our gifts and surroundings I don t know why I picked this up to read as it s something that shouldn t have appealed to me snow on the cover just looking at it made me cold Nature Magazine writer Alanna Cormac is semi content in her lonely New York life which includes sharing an internet friendship with Iditarod racer Dale Ramsden As part of a promotion trial Alanna gets assigned to write an article about Denali and a trip there to research it, while there she meets Dale and they slide into an easy romance as he shows her life in Alaska through his eyes I loved the charming characters including the dogs the easy ebb and flow of the smooth writing For me the mystery elements of the story were the weakest link maybe because I m a cynic or maybe because it was telegraphed, but it was an interesting side thread for the leads to be involved in However, the characters were so engaging and diverse that it didn t matter A far fetched climax didn t mar this enjoyable read for me This is a very relaxing read perfect for a rainy day or the beach. Dodie s Review Christine DePetrillo must have been to Denali Her descriptions of Alaska and Denali are dead on Alaska is a simply beautiful place Even thought I don t want to admit it, it has been close to twenty years since I have been there, and the beauty stays with you Although, I had the good sense to go there in the summer and not the early spring that this book is set in This is definitely a contemporary novel The book opens with a string of emails between Gaia Girl and Sled Dog Gaia Girl and Sled Dog have been internet correspondents for some time When Gaia Girl, or Alanna Cormac, ends up on a dream trip to Alaska, and meets Sled Dog in the flesh I really enjoyed this touch of realism to the story People meet and fall in love, or lust, via email and chat all the time these days The fact that they have been corresponding for so long, helps explain their instant chemistry when they meet Alanna and Dale forge a close, relationship during her time in Alaska on assignment, and really do their part to heat up his cabin with their love scenes This is a great book Christine DePetrillo really takes the readers on a trip to Alaska, and on a ride on a whirlwind romance I recommend that you go and buy this book You won t be disappointed.5 Tea Cups and a Recommended Read
