Debbie Macomber takes us back to Alaska in her new book The Snow Bride. Jenna Campbell has been working as an executive assistant for Brad Fulton for the past 6 years. During this time she has been in love with her boss, and ignored by him except for how she runs his professional life. Jenna has decided itís time to shake up her life and look for some adventure.

Through the wonders of the internet, she has connected with Dalton Gray. They meet in a chat room about poetry, and Jenna is enthralled. She decides to uproot her life, and fly to Beesley, Alaska to meet him, and yes, if thatís where the path leads to marry him. This really goes against Jennaís nature, and her mother Chloe is trying to change her mind. Jenna is determined, and nothing is going to stop her.

On the flight to Alaska, Jenna is seated next to Reid Jamison and finds him to be the exact opposite of the man she thinks sheís going to meet. Once in Fairbanks, Jenna is abandoned at the airport. Dalton is not there to meet her. She now has no choice but to put her faith in Reid. This isnít easy on either of them at first, only because they end up snowbound together in Reidís cabin in Snowbound, Alaska, do they get to know each other.

After the snow eases, Jenna flees Alaska back to the safety of California, and Brad. Sheís miserable, and unbeknownst to her so is Reid. It takes the interference of Brad into Jennaís personal life for Jenna to realize where she truly belongs. In the end, Jennaís dream of marrying a rugged Alaskan comes true.

The Snow Bride is a sweet romance. Itís not one thatís going to make your body temperature rise, but it will warm your heart. Ms. Macomber has done a wonderful job of creating Snowbound, and the loving, hearted men of Snowbound. I did not find a character I didnít care for in the entire book, with the exception of Dalton Gray, however he is the character you love to hate. The Snow Bride will make a wonderful gift for the romance reader in your life.
