Alaskan Christmas Redemption by Belle Calhoune

Alaskan Christmas RedemptionABOUT THE BOOK

Some secrets are meant to be shared.

Before he gives his heart…

he’ll have to forgive himself.

Returning to Owl Creek after years away, Braden North’s determined to help his best friend, Piper Miller, save her failing diner. But as they work to revitalize her business, Braden’s convinced he must hide the truth about a tragedy from their past…or risk losing Piper for good. If he can find the courage, might telling her everything make this Christmas a time for healing and forgiveness?


What happens when you feel your best friend slipping away just when you need him the most? This is Piper Miller's predicament as she faces losing the family business that meant so much to her late father and believing that she has to handle it alone. She doesn't want to worry her mother and brother and the one person she can confide in is now out of reach. Piper needs her life-long friend but Braden North isn't the same person that she once knew. She may be keeping her family in the dark but Braden definitely has a secret that may forever change the relationship they've always known!

I love it when friends realize that their friendship has turned into something more and discovering this during the Christmas season is like placing the star on top of the tree! Author Belle Calhoune takes us back to Owl Creek, Alaska and it's a wonderful place to be at Christmas. Eating at the Snowy Owl Diner, sampling the Oreo milkshakes, decorating the Christmas trees, and spending time with family and friends. And don't forget the grace and forgiveness that overflows during this season of love and goodwill!

If you enjoy reading stories with realistic family dynamics in small town settings, you will certainly want to read Alaska Christmas Redemption. You need to see if Piper and Braden can salvage their friendship or perhaps find something more!

I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher. A favorable review was not required and no compensation was received. These are my own thoughts. 

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.
