Her Secret Alaskan Family by Belle Calhoune


Can she come home to a place she’s never known?

Everyone remembers the kidnapped Alaskan baby…but they don’t know she’s returned home.

Sage Duncan is the only person in Owl Creek who knows her true identity: the missing Alaskan chocolate heiress. Now she’s returned to Alaska to learn about the family she was stolen from—without disclosing her identity. But keeping her deep secret from gorgeous town sheriff Hank Crawford is much harder than Sage thought…especially when she finds herself falling for him.


Sage Duncan's life is totally changed when her dying mother confesses that she had kidnapped Sage as an infant. Sage longs to find her birth parents but she also feels great love and loyalty to the man who had been her father for twenty-five years. Eric Duncan was also a victim of this lie and Sage is determined to protect him from being charged with kidnapping! What follows is a heartwarming tale of a young woman traveling from Florida to Alaska to find her true identity but instead, discovering so much more.

I loved reading how the small community of Owl Creek rallied around a family who had their baby girl taken and continued to support them during the twenty-five years after their baby's abduction. Author Belle Calhoune perfectly shows the many repercussions from the desperate act of one unstable person---intense and never-ending heartache for a grieving family and the emotions of a young woman whose life is thrown into shambles. Sage feels cheated from never knowing her birth family but also struggles with her love and loyalty for the only father that she has ever known! Getting to know the wealthy North family as she seeks the truth shows Sage just how much she has missed and reminds her that family is everything, money certainly doesn't guarantee happiness, and love and forgiveness are necessary if you truly want to find lasting peace.

There are several special characters in this book, including Sheriff Hank Crawford and his adorable daughter Addie. It is apparent that Hank and Sage feel an attraction but Hank isn't ready to risk another heartbreak! I also enjoyed meeting Hank's mother and sister and the two young men who turn out to be Sage's brothers; I am hoping that their stories will continue in the next books of the Home to Owl Creek series. I highly recommend Her Secret Alaskan Family to anyone who enjoys Christian romance and contemporary fiction.

I received a copy of this book from the author but I wasn't required to write a positive review. These thoughts are my own.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Belle Calhoune writes heartwarming, inspirational romance novels set in small, cozy towns. Married to her college sweetheart and living in southern Connecticut, she is the mother of two girls. Born and raised in Massachusetts, she is one of five children. Growing up across the street from a public library allowed her to become an avid reader who aspired to be a romance writer. When she isn't writing, she enjoys reading, spending time in Cape Cod, traveling and enjoying time with friends and family.
Belle hopes her books will provide readers with inspiration, entertainment and an escape from day to day life.
