This was a very unique novel, set in Alaska, and featuring the Iditarod race. I enjoyed learning a little bit about the race, the culture and the terrain (though I wanted to learn more!). I enjoyed meeting the characters and watching them work together to protect one another and solve a series of mysteries. I enjoyed the lessons on faith, friendship, courage and love. The romance was a bit sappy, but sweet as well.
I was afraid I might feel a bit behind on the storyline, since this is book #5 in the series, yet my first delving into the series, but it was fine to read as a stand-alone book.
I would recommend this book to any female reader age 16+.
I received this book as a gift from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
