"Snagged" is the first of the Copper River Romances.
In some places in Alaska there are only two places to socialize, the bar and the church. Dorcas' family chose the church. Trying to find her path, she is spending the winter in a remote cabin. The pilot of a small plane crashes on the river. Dorcas pulls James out, saving his life.
James has been working alongside his father building the business for years. When he goes to Fairbanks to scout out a second location, his father is not happy about it. Leaving a day early, his plane develops engine trouble over the Copper River, far off course. Being thrown from the aircraft into the icy water, James thinks his life is over until the girl pulls him from the river.
There is a family connection which goes back over 25 years something neither of the young people discover until her family comes to spend Christmas with her at the remote cabin. Will an old lie tear the young couple apart? Will James' father finally listen to the truth?

Romance, Historical Fiction, Fantasy, Paranormal, all sorts of characters and plots evolve from a vivid imagination. I came to Alaska kicking and screaming in 1976, and I never want to leave. I cut firewood on shares for money to get through the winter. I swore I would not live above the Alaska Range because it was too cold there and wound up in the Copper River Basin where it got just a cold as Fairbanks. My second husband, a Scot from Glasgow, was the love of my life. When I write Scots dialect, I experienced hearing it from my in-laws. Each time my husband got on the phone to Scotland after five seconds, I could hardly understand a word. I was my second husband's chief mechanic's helper and roadie. I live in a cabin which is slowly being surrounded by the city and wish I were further out. My two cats and Husky-Collie mix dog are happy in our little slice of heaven called Alaska. In the silence of winter dreams of people and places provide a rich pool of ideas to explore.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I was given a gifted copy by Story Cartel in exchange for an honest review. The story is set in Alaska where life is very different and difficult due to the low temperatures registered there. The author shows us how life is there, the things that need to be done and the priorities that everybody should know in order to survive there. The story tells us about Dorcas and James, how they meet and how their relationship changes into love, respecting their different backgrounds and their religious education. A good story, easy to read and enjoyable that I would recommend, especially to those who are believers. It’s a pity that the editing is so poor and that’s the reason I only give it 4 stars.
