He had a strict "no tourists" policy...Until she broke all of his rules.
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 parade 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 grumpy local than meets the eye...and more to love in Moose Springs than just the Alaskan wilderness.
I thought this was a cute romance that gives you a little taste of Alaska in the summer. Graham gives off strong “Luke from Gilmore Girls” vibes, though he might be a little more fun than that. Zoey actually feels like a person who struggles with money and is stretching her dimes for her vacation. If your prefer your romances to be more closed-door, this one is not explicit (though it is still sexy). I liked the setting, and the tension between the townies and the tourists, so I plan on reading more of the series!
