An Alaskan Christmas Promise (Home to Owl Creek, #6) by Belle Calhoune

An Alaskan Christmas Promise

A Christmas to cherish…

And a secret to protect.

This needs to be the best Christmas Kit O’Malley has ever seen—because she may not be able to see another. Diagnosed with failing vision, it takes all her determination to stay focused on what makes her happy: her daughter, her service-puppy-in-training and the puppy’s trainer, Leo Duggan. But they can’t reach their Christmas joy together until Kit’s secret comes to light…


From Love Inspired: Uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness, and hope.


I never get tired of visiting Owl Creek, Alaska and this new book by author Belle Calhoune is an especially poignant visit. Kit O'Malley has a lot of burdens weighing on her. She's raising her one-year-old daughter by herself, and she's been diagnosed with macular degeneration. She also has a secret that she needs to protect. Can she bear these burdens alone?

An Alaskan Christmas Promise gave me all of the feels! I could imagine Kit's fear of the future and her reluctance to divulge part of her past. Her desire to have a service dog to help her retain her independence, and her overwhelming need to protect her sweet little Ada. Will she be able to care for her daughter if her sight is completely taken away? And then, there's her friendship with the dog trainer who may be able to provide the service puppy that she desperately longs for. Is Leo Duggan meant to become more than just an old friend? Does he hold the key to her future?

If you're longing for an inspiring Christmas story with a special setting and wonderful characters that include an adorable dog and a precious toddler, look no further! An Alaskan Christmas Promise is a heartwarming romance that is filled with faith and trust during a season known for joy and hope. It's a great addition to both the Home to Owl Creek series and the K-9 Companions series.

I received a complimentary copy from the author and publisher. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 5 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.
