My Thoughts:

Love Inspired and Belle Calhoune release the next installment in the Alaskan Grooms series.  This story is set in the small fishing town of Love, Alaska.  This is a story of second chances.  
We are introduced to Paige Reynolds who is returning to Love after being gone for almost 2 years.  She doesn't expect a welcoming committee, but she made her father a deathbed promise that she plans to keep.  She is returning to repair the damage he caused 2 years ago.   
Paige is a very complex character.  She lost her mother at a young age and developed a close relationship with her father.  When they formally moved to Love she had a typical childhood and met the love of her life, Cameron Prescott.  Or at least she thought had until 2 years ago when it came to light that her father had embezzled money from the town and had run off to parts unknown.  Paige was literally left in complete shock and devastation.  The town blamed her and accusations were cast that she was involved in the crime.  She turned to the one person she thought she could trust, Cameron, but he felt that she was somehow involved and told her she needed to leave town.   Scared, heartbroken betrayed and alone Paige left Alaska with no plans of every returning.
Paige's return has a huge impact on Cameron.  She explains that with the death of her father she has come to return what money was left from his embezzlement.  She also informs him of the child she had conceived and gave birth to, Emma.  Cameron is in complete turmoil.  He easily falls in love with his child, but can he trust her mother?  
This was an intriguing story for me.  
The characters are strong and well developed.  I loved Paige from the beginning even though I felt she was a little naive.  She shows her strength of character to come back and face a place she's not wanted to do the right thing.  The plot flows effortlessly. I enjoyed the small town feel of this story.  This is my first Belle Calhoune book to read, but it won't be the last. 
I would recommend this to anyone who loves a good romance.
