Amanda Bennington should have guessed her husband was having an affair with his new ineterest in working out and recent hair transplants. Still, Amanda is fuming when Harold leaves her for a younger woman then skips to the Cayman Islands after emptying their joint bank acounts. Now divorced, alone, and penniless, she is ready to start a new life. To get a fresh start, Amands heads for Alaska to spend time with her Aunt Jenny, who runs a fly-in lodge and private wildlife rescue center near Juneau. On the plane ride, she encounters an oaf, who quickly informs Amanda she is in his seat.
Layne Brewster nursed his sick wife until she passed away three years ago. As a bush pilot, he prefers to fly with in Alaska's borders, not in and out. Layne does not immediately hit it off with Amanda. The plane ride makes him a bit sick where he barfs right on her.
A first encounter Amanda would never forget. Layne appeared to be quite the man that seemed to stir feelings in her that she did not wish to feel again. As love blossoms in the air for the two, they find something special and once they are trapped during a stormy night, it appears the recipe for disaster is about to unleash sensations like a tidal wave. Now Amanda can only hope to put the past behind her and really start to live.
Alaskan Magic really lives up to its name. Surrounded by a luxurious landscape, captivating and breathtaking, the ambience of it all, acts like a magnet drawing the reader into the whole area. The visualization is detailed in a way to make the reader feel all the excitement and intrigue. Carol McPhee sketches believable characters, great dialogue and delivers a remarkable tale that allows the reader to climb aboard a fantastic journey that screams I want more.
