CHINOOK, WINE, AND SINK HER
MORGAN Q. O’REILLY
Rating: 4 Cups
Linnet Greenbriar is a biologist working for the State of Alaska. Her previous job ended under a cloud when she was drugged and attacked by a co-worker. No one believed her, not even her fiancé, and she was forced to leave.
Creed Willis works on the Slope two weeks on and two weeks off. He spends his weeks off at his remote cabin near the Arctic Circle. His relationships never last more than his two weeks of leave and he likes it that way.
Assigned to a project near the Circle when the local officer breaks his leg, Linnet is staying at a cabin along the river. While catching a gigantic salmon, she almost falls in the river, but is rescued by a devastatingly handsome man. Wary of men, she allows him to camp outside the cabin, only to find out that he is the owner. He is not the only guest in the cabin this summer and the crowd hampers Creed’s seduction of the beautiful biologist.
This story combines a great love story with humor and a bit of suspense. Creed is a wonderful character and very sensitive when it comes to Linnet’s troubled past. She has a tendency to run from trouble and he will not let her run from him. The arrival of Creed’s cousin George, the injured Fish and Game cop, and her Navy SEAL brother, Hawk put a definite monkey wrench in Creed’s plans, but the humor in this section is very well done. The setting is so vivid, I felt like I was there, the other characters came alive on the page as well as Linnet and Creed. I particularly liked the results of the visit from her former co-workers. This is a great story that you will not be able to put down, I know I could not.
