Not as good as last frontier lodge novels. In fact found this one quite slow and lead female character was insipid. Susie sounds a lot of fun so hoping next book will be better.

"When Love Comes" is an easy going romance. While I don't agree with how Croix structured her plot, I did appreciate how she drew me into her setting. If you've never been to Alaska, you'll want to go experience it after reading this novel, and if you have, Croix's prose will make you feel like Alaska is merely a page turn away.

Her main characters, Hannah and Luke have similar pasts and are from the same town, but I don't necessarily think it would make them talk and behave the same. One of my biggest issues is just that: many of the characters have little personality and come off like they are merely doppelgängers. They all have fleshed out lives, with pasts that come back to haunt them physically and mentally, and they are expressed well in exposition, but when it comes to what they do and say, Croix's characterization just did not have the follow through I wanted.

I did have an issue with how slowly the plot progressed and the lack of conflict throughout, but when I read Croix's first romance scene I was so blown away that I forgot all my qualms with the novel.

It was then that I compared this novel to Ian Mcewan's "Saturday". His novel was written in such a way that the main character's cold, scientific perspective completely overran the narrative and made it impossible for the plot or any characterization to progress for much of the novel, but he wrote it that way to accentuate the times when his character's thoughts were derailed by emotion. During those periods the character could focus on action and reaction only, and what he did made the novel, and his character fantastic. Croix's romance scenes do the same thing for her in "When Love Comes". They are well written and are the foundation of this work.

An endearing romance set amidst a lovely cast of characters in small town Alaska... what's not to love? For me, female lead characters need a strong supporting cadre of girlfriends... J.H. Croix gives Hannah a charming friend in Susie, and adds quite a twist with Emma. Emma's role reflects an intriguing side story - I'd like a bit more here. Perhaps we'll learn more in a sequel?

I always enjoy well written family dynamics between a male lead character, his brothers, and their (almost inevitably) strong willed mother. When Love Comes offers plenty of light comedy in the conversations between Luke, his two brothers, and their well meaning but meddling mother, Iris. I'm speculating hopefully that we'll learn more about these brothers in future books!

I'll admit to not feeling pulled in by the prologue, because the defining event in the prologue made me worry that the rest of the book would feel canned (it doesn't - keep reading!). I also didn't completely buy into the conflict surrounding Cristina. To be honest, I feel that way about the conflicts injected into many other well written romance novels - and this novel really is well written. Little details like "The One That Didn't Get Away" made me smile. Finally, I loved the last few sentences at Otter Cove! What a fitting end to a charming story.

This is a sweet romance set in Alaska. What I liked most about this story was the descriptions of the location. The author has captured the beauty and majesty of Alaska, from salmon "dipnetting" to descriptions of the area.

What I didn't like was each main character's backstory was lumped all together in chunks. Then later in the story, much of the same information was repeated. The details could have more seamlessly been incorporated as the story progressed. Other information is also often repeated in places--first in one character's thoughts and words, then again in another character's. For example, stuff about finding a place for Jessie the dog to live, and another topic repeated is a discussion about what happened to Hannah's parents.

Once you get to the family secret, the story picks up and becomes more interesting. I think, perhaps if some of the later conflict came earlier, it would have made the story better paced. But, nonetheless, it's worth the read.

When Love Come is a romance set in Diamond Creek, a small town in Alaska. I was intrigued with the rugged beauty portrayed in the book.
Hannah has been away from Alaska for two years whilst attending college. Just after she left her parents were killed in a plane crash. A big part of the adventurous and carefree Hannah seemed to die along with her parents; she wanted to change as she thought she disappointed them.

Luke and his brothers moved to Alaska just after Hannah left to start their fishing business.
Hannah and Luke seem to have similar pasts; they have both been burn by a past relationship. Neither of them are looking for romance. But they find that they are starting to get too close to each other. The author does a good job in creating the internal conflict that love can bring when it’s something you don’t want to admit you want; and showing us the past hurts and the healing that both Hannah and Luke work through.

There were some good sexy moments between the characters, it didn’t feel rushed, and sexual tension was built up a between them beforehand. The story moved along at a gentle pace, but it was more told than shown. The book is well written for the most part, but the continuing over use of ellipses did get a little annoying. It also felt very repeated, to the point where I began to skip a few paragraphs when I knew what was coming next.
Overall, the characters were likable, and a nice love story with just minor issues; still worth a read.
