Tracie Peterson has done it again....the Alaskan Quest series IMO was excellent. The minute I had all three books I couldn't put them down and had them read immediately! This series piggybacks off the Yukon Quest series.

The Pinkerton's find their way into Book #2, Under the Northern Lights. Helaina Beecham, a sophisticated widow from the East Coast find her way in the Alaskan Territory. She becomes obsessed with finding, Chase Kincaid, and she now becomes the prey. Will Helaina survive? You'll have to read the book to find out. I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

Great book. Tracie never lets me down. Good story line, characters and best of all--always about God--pointing the way to him through believable stories. Captivating.

After being away for a few months, Leah Barringer Kincaid comes home to Last Chance Creek, Alaska when she realizes this is no longer home since she married Jayce and they cannot live here as her brother Jacob resides here. However, instead of the warm greetings from her spouse and her sibling, Jayce's brother Chase says hello warning her to behave or else. While Jayce and Jacob are caught in a storm, Chase takes Leah and subsequently Pinkerton Agent Helaina Beecham hostage.

In captivity, Helaina regrets that her obsession superseded her common sense so now she is the prisoner of the dangerous beast she sought. When she becomes ill, Leah nurses her, but has no one, not even God, to nurture her after Chase assaults her as he needs to destroy anything his sibling cherishes. As things turn bleaker with Helaina needing professional help or she will die and Chase becoming nastier, Leah regains her faith and prays God provides them a miracle while Jayce plans to end the war with his twin once and for all for as he went to far when he abducted Leah.

The second Arctic Quest tale (SEE SUMMER OF THE MIDNIGHT SUN) is a terrific historical thriller that provides Tracie Peterson's myriad of fans with a powerful look at life in the Alaskan Territory circa 1915. The tidbits that are interwoven into the story line such as the speed of communication make the historical fun to read. Though the plot takes a bit time to move beyond the pace of dog sleds in a storm, fans of inspirational early twentieth century sagas will enjoy Ms. Peterson's fine look back.
