Synopsis from Goodreads:
Those red socks–with Sophie’s business card neatly tucked inside–are practically all that’s found after runner William Harrington’s shredded corpse turns up in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, the victim of a mysteriously dramatic death by polar bear. With an unerring nose for a good story, Sophie heads north to Alaska.
What she doesn’t realize is that her father’s infamous reputation has spread even to the far reaches of Prudhoe Bay. Sophie’s assigned a bodyguard–Jack MacAlister, a sexy FBI agent who grudgingly takes the assignment while recovering from an on-duty injury. But they will soon be fighting more than growing passion.
The characters in this novel were quite interesting. Although they were close, and were a pseudo-extended family they were very very different individuals. It added a sense of fullness to the story. I did find the female lead to have a bit of a personality overload. She’d go from one to the next and then back again at the flip of a switch.
This was an intriguing read, and one that I was thoroughly wrapped up in by the ending. I have a feeling I would have enjoyed it much more had I been reading it rather than listening to the audio book.
