synopsis header
“When Graham Barnett named his diner The Tourist Trap, he meant it as a joke. Now he’s stuck slinging reindeer dogs to an endless string of resort visitors who couldn’t interest him less. Not even the sweet, enthusiastic tourist in the corner who blushes every time he looks her way…

Two weeks in Alaska isn’t just the top item on Zoey Caldwell’s bucket list. It’s the whole bucket. One look at the mountain town of Moose Springs and she’s smitten. But when an act of kindness brings Zoey into Graham’s world, she may just find there’s more to the man than meets the eye…and more to love in Moose Springs than just the Alaskan wilderness. (Goodreads)

I have seen a couple reviews about this book already and it only made me want to dive into this more! Anything that is about Alaska will automatically grab my attention because it’s one place that I would love to visit. Alaska plus romance was duo that called to me.

Graham Barnett is a funny guy. He literally dislikes tourists but somehow befriend Lana (a friend of Zoey) and clearly has romantic feelings towards another. He has a hard exterior but he is soft on the inside. There wasn’t anything I didn’t love about him.

Zoey Caldwell is having her dream vacation but there is a lot of hiccups in her plans. She doesn’t understand the way of life of Moose Springs but she is always ready to understand. I liked that she was outgoing and tried a lot of new things. Her banter with Graham was always enjoyable to read.

The romance is not steamy and that was okay with me! You definitely felt the growing tension between them though and most of the time I was screaming in my head for them to just kiss!

Alaska as a setting was everything I wanted. There were different touristy things Zoey did and I loved that the author included moose. I mean, the town is named Moose Springs after all.

The plot was fun and it kept me engaged throughout. The ending was everything and it just made my heart full.

Overall, this was a very enjoyable book and I am excited that it will be part of a series.

  1. NEED!!! I can’t get enough of rom com style books these days. And I love when they’re not too steamy. I like fizzing chemistry between the leads but none of the graphic… how shall I put this… in flagrante delicto moments 😊😂😂😂
