After a failed dig in Honduras, aspiring archaeologist Casper Christiansen heads home to Minnesota to face his unresolved feelings for Raina Beaumont, the woman of his dreams. But when he arrives unannounced on her doorstep, he receives the shock of a lifetime: Raina is pregnant with someone else’s baby.
Heartbroken, especially when he discovers the identity of the baby’s father, Casper tables his dreams and determines to be dependable for once, helping his older brother, Darek, prepare the family resort for its grand reopening. Casper longs to be the hero of at least one family story, but a never-ending Deep Haven winter and costly repairs threaten their efforts―and the future of the resort.
Worse, one of Casper’s new jobs constantly brings him into contact with Raina, whom he can’t seem to forget. A tentative friendship begins to heal fresh wounds, but can they possibly overcome past mistakes and current choices to discover a future together?
After the way we left Casper and Raina at the end of When I Fall in Love I absolutely could not wait to read this book and see how their story would play out!
As is often the case with Susan May Warren novels this book had me on an emotional roller coaster! Both Casper and Raina had some very difficult things to deal with in their lives and it was a bit hard to watch on occasion as they went through everything, but it was also beautiful to see how God work everything out in the end.
I have loved Casper since book one, his tender heart and adventurous nature made him such a fabulous hero. Raina was a little harder to get to know due to the walls she had up but I did like her too! And it was nice to catch up with the other Christiansens-I really love this family! The mystery aspect was totally intriguing and I was completely into solving it!
Every aspect of this book was brilliantly written and I loved every second! Cannot wait to read the next Christiansen book!!
