Fun Romance Novels Set in Alaska
These books are my top choices when looking for a good romance novel set in Alaska. You’ll experience the Alaskan setting whether it’s at a tourist resort or a small town at the edges of the open wilderness. I loved them all and think you’ll enjoy these as well.
The Tourist Attraction by Sarah Morgenthaler
It’s no wonder that The Tourist Attraction always has a waiting list at my local library. It’s a fun escape read full of humor and romance.
In this book, you’ll meet Graham Barnett who runs a small town diner in an Alaskan tourist town and Zoe Caldwell who comes to Moose Springs, Alaska on her dream trip where she ends up falling in love with more than just the state of Alaska.
This is a great choice for anyone who loves romantic comedies and wants to continue the story a short series.
The simple Wild by K. A. Tucker
Calla Fletcher’s mother left Alaska with her when she was only two because she could no longer take the isolation and fear of being married to a pilot. After growing up in Toronto and enjoying her busy life, Calla learns that her estranged father is dying. She decides it’s time to go back to the isolated small Alaskan town to see her father before it’s too late.
Calla struggles to adjust and to break through her father’s gruff exterior. But, with the help of new friends and people close to her Dad, she forges a relationship with her Dad and forms a bond with one of her father’s pilots that could lead to love. Can she handle living in remote Alaska better than her mother could?
And, like The Tourist Attraction, this book is the first book of a series and the story continues with the book Wild At Heart.
Alaskan Holiday by Debbie Macomber
When Josie took a summer job cooking at a lakeside lodge in the remote Alaskan town of Ponder, she didn’t expect to fall in love with the community or with a local man, Palmer. Despite her attachments to the town, she still plans on leaving at the end of the season to return to Seattle. Unfortunately, after a series of events, Josie misses the last boat out of Ponder and finds herself stranded for the winter along with all the year-round residents.
With the holiday season approaching and a little bit of Christmas magic thrown in the mix, Josie must decide if her dreams are in Seattle or Ponder and whether the messiness of love is enough.
The fun choice is great for anyone looking for a quick, light read and for fans of Christmas romances.
