    I thought this was a cute story about a world class chef who ends up in Alaska. Four years after running away from New York and her former life there, she meets Nick Hudson, a travel journalist who is writting about the Christmas festival in the Alaskan town of Good Riddance, where Augustina, the chef is now residing.Of course Nick and Gus hit it off...anyway, I don't want to spoil it for anyone but there is a pleasant Christmas romance with a touch of mystery. Just the right thing before Christmas!

    2.5 actually. I confess to skimming.Let's see... h was previously engaged to some guy whose family was influential. She broke up with him, and he started stalking her. So she's been living in bumblefart nowhereville off the grid for 4 years.H is a travel reporter. He comes to bumblefart nowhereville for reasons I never really understood. Something about doing an article on some Christmas celebration there. Why, I dunno. I mean; I'd imagine off-the-wall Christmas celebrations are pretty common in one-horse towns.He maneuvers his way into helping her with her restaurant. Maneuvers his way into her bed, she spills everything but the name initially. A day (or was it two) later, she tells him that. Conveniently, the stalker went missing on his honeymoon cruise, suspected of being pushed overboard. No body though. Huh.So now the barrier is gone that keeps her trapped here, so he quickly proposes, and is surprised that she says that she's surprised he'd be willing to move there. Once he states his feelings on that matter, she turns him down.Of course, the whole town knows he proposed and assumes she's moving, so they're all staking claims on her stuff. Frankly at this point, I'd have had a very public meltdown. On the mike. Instead, she just politely tells everyone she's not moving.Of COURSE the next morning she meets him at the tiny airstrip to head back to NYC "because she's stifled here". I guess she'd rather be one of many little fish in a sea of humanity than the big fish in the only diner in town. (rolls eyes). That of course is assuming dirtbag is indeed dead and not hiding somewhere waiting for her to turn up.

    Oh, Harlequin. You feel-good easy reads have pulled me in, since it allows me to read while maintain a busy life. I can seriously complete half a Harlequin in one bathtub session. So yes, I've been devouring them like a box of Fanny Farmer chocolates. Shush up and don't judge. These last two bathtub sessions have brought me to Good Riddance, Alaska in Jennifer LaBrecque's "Alaskan Heat". Yay, here come the holiday reads!The following may or may not contain spoilers.A few years ago beautiful and well-respected chef Gus Tippens escaped a stalker ex boyfriend in New York City and seeks refuge in the sleepy and cozy town of Good Riddance, Alaska. She feels safe and secure in her hideout, until the arrival of the sexy NYC travel journalist Nick Hudson has her worried that her cover will be blown. Guards up, she still feels sparks of desire when Nick volunteers to help her in her short-staffed eatery. But when she and Nick begin to get closer, Gus' family get suspicious and worried for Gus' sake. Plus, what good is a short-term love affair if Nick's whirlwind life of travel will carry him away from Good Riddance by Christmas anyways?Just a fun little romance. what I loved most is the setting and the supporting cast of characters. The town felt so real and relatable. I felt like I was visiting Good Riddance myself for the Christmoose festival. That's why this book got 4 stars. To me setting and description means everything, and Jennifer LaBrecque has a real talent for this. A whole lotta fun!

    Northern Escape was such a quick read for me simply because I couldn't get enough of Gus and Nick. I was so intrigued to find out Gus' secret that when I did I wanted to read more!I loved the atmosphere of the small town which is Good Riddance and the way everyone knows each others business the story itself based in that town truly amazed me at how much I loved it. There are a couple of quoted from the novel which I adored. "The loons and many other birds fly south for the winter. They knows when the season has passed, if they stay where they don't belong, they will die." and the other one is a more lighter quote. "There's a season for everything."Jennifer Labreque has definitely wrote a compelling hot book which stole my mind and attention and ended up enthralled in a small town in Alaska. Something which I won't complain about!Her characters are just as addictive and hot and absolutely breath-taking!The way Northern Escape took me to another world I know I'll be reading more of Jennifer's books as they'll just have to get better and better!

    Gus's story... the third book in the Alaskan Heat mini-series takes place around Christmas and New Year. Because it builds on characters from the previous two books, it would probably be best read after them, although it gives enough detail to work as a book on its own, this info could be seen as something of a spoiler if you want to read the other two books.

    I liked this story the least of the three books in this series. I just didn't really find the romance between Gus and Nick that interesting. The author spent too much time on filling in the back story and not enough developing the romance. Also, I'm not sure why the story about Jenna and her unsuccessful pursuit of Nelson was thrown in this just didn't seem to belong.

    I really enjoyed this mini-series by Jennifer LaBrecque that included Northern Exposure, Northern Encounter and Northern Escape. Romantic, fun, and good stories. I'll look for more books by this author.

    This last one in the Alaskan heat series made me soooo hungry...the kitchen scenes and food descriptions should be banned from pre-CHristmas books...can't diet and read!
