Where life’s currents take you…
Dana Raynott just traveled 3,600 miles to reunite with the brother who changed his name and fled to Alaska nineteen years ago. It’s impossible not to be moved by this wild, breathtaking state, even if Dana’s no closer to finding the answers she came here for.
Her brother’s best friend, Anchorage engineer Sam MacKettrick, might be able to help her. He’s strong and kind—a six-foot, irresistible blend of diverse cultures. He’s also haunted by a tragic family history with a startling connection to Dana’s past…

Review by Ridenthewave:

I have completely changed my opinion of never traveling to Alaska. After reading this book, I not only would love to visit this state, but also spend time with the people.

Beth Carpenter did an excellent job of capturing the reader’s attention and submerging them into the story of Chris, Dana and Sam.  I loved the personality traits of loyalty, family, friendship, and so much more that were reflected within these three, along with the other charters of the book.

Curl up and enjoy the story of Dana’s trip to Alaska, self-discovery, mystery, and love as she embarks upon a crusade to make things right with people from the past and improve the lives of those in her present and future.  Having had experienced minimal affection and outward expressions of love, Dana heads out to Alaska immediately after the death of her father, to find her estranged brother.  While waiting for her brother’s return to his home she has the opportunity to meet and get to know his “hot” roommate/best friend.  As Dana learns to love Alaska, she also will find that her father may not have been the man she thought he was and realize that the person she is looking for may literally be right next to her.

This book has a great story-line of friendship, mystery, forgiveness and love.  I would recommend this to anyone.  The kissing scenes are very modestly done.  You cannot help but to fall in love with Alaska and the characters.   I received an advance copy of this book.

5 Stars *****


I really enjoyed reading the Alaskan Catch.  It had a lot of mystery and suspense throughout the story.  I like learning a little more about Alaska.

The characters are developed really well.  The story flowed well from chapter to chapter.  I was able to feel the emotions of the characters well and liked the suspense in the story.

I highly recommend this book to other readers.  It is a really good read and held my attention well throughout.

I would give this book a literary rating of  5/5

    I like the cover and the book sounds great as well. I’ve visited Alaska on a cruise and I would love to go back to visit more of the state!

      Julie, I am envious! I have wanted to go on the 10-day Alaskan Cruise
      forever! I have had to just salivate and enjoy several friends pictures
      and re-cap of it. I definitely need to do this before I die!
      Thank you1

    Thanks for the wonderful review, and for hosting me today. I hope you make it to Alaska one day. It is beautiful. Just be sure to bring a rain jacket.

    Julie, hope you make it back to Alaska. I’ve lived here forever, but I’ve never done the cruise, so I hope to do that someday soon.
