I've been reading WANTED IN ALASKA by Kate Bridges and here are two things that tell me I'm reading a really good book.
1. I'm surprised - in a good way. Things happen that I haven't foreseen. When you've been in the romance business a long time, that isn't that common.
2. It makes me want to go to Alaska. I may be Canadian, but I don't like the cold, so Alaska has never been on my list of places to go. But the way Kate writes about the place, with vivid, fascinating descriptions, I sure wouldn't react with a "oh, heck, no!" if I had the opportunity to go, as I would have before.
There are other good points about WANTED IN ALASKA, but I suggest you find out for yourself. :-)
