Goodreads:  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?

Kritters Thoughts:  The fourth in the Christiansen series and before I go further if you haven't started this series, then stop here and go start reading!

This book centers around the middle son Caspar and at the end of the previous book he had escaped his hometown to do some treasure hunting and get away from the drama of a failed relationship and a fight with his younger brother.  Raina was the other main character and the author gave her a chance to tell her side in quite a few chapters, so I enjoyed that her story didn't only occur when Caspar was there.  

Like most Christiansen stories I love that although the book concentrates on one sibling, the others make appearances and the reader gets an update on them.  Darek and his wife Ivy were the the most prevalent in this one and I loved hearing about how Tiger was getting along and how Darek and the resort were recovering.  

This author is in the Christian fiction genre and this book has some Christian elements, but I love that it is subtle and still has a full plot line to it with Christian features weaved into the story.  I don't know how many more Christiansen books there will be, but I will definitely be reading them all!

Rating: absolutely loved it and want a sequel
