Thank you so much to Sourcebooks Casablanca and Netgalley for letting me read Enjoy the View early! This is the 3rd book in the Moose Springs, Alaska series and I have absolutely loved all three of them (check out my reviews for The Tourist Attraction and Mistletoe and Mister Right)!
Enjoy the View 5/5 Stars
Summary from Goodreads:
A grouchy mountaineer, a Hollywood starlet
And miles of untamed wilderness…
What could possibly go wrong?
Former Hollywood darling River Lane’s acting career is tanking fast. Determined to start fresh behind the camera, she agrees to film a documentary about the picturesque small town of Moose Springs, Alaska. The assignment should have been easy, but the quirky locals want nothing to do with River. Well, too bad: River’s going to make this film and prove herself, no matter what it takes.
Or what (literal) mountain she has to climb.
Easton Lockett may be a gentle giant, but he knows a thing or two about survival. If he can keep everyone in line, he should be able to get River and her crew up and down Mount Veil in one piece. Turns out that’s a big if. The wildlife’s wilder than usual, the camera crew’s determined to wander off a cliff, and the gorgeous actress is fearless. Falling for River only makes Easton’s job tougher, but there’s only so long he can hold out against her brilliant smile. When bad weather strikes, putting everyone at risk, it’ll take all of Easton’s skill to get them back home safely…and convince River she should stay in his arms for good.
I was so excited for this book because it was Easton’s book! I loved the twins throughout both Graham and Rick’s books, so I was so ready to read about one of them finding love (hopefully there’s going to be a book about Ashton finding love next because I have to read that- Ashton is such a badass amazing helicopter pilot and I want to read anything I can about her). I really didn’t realize how intense Easton’s job as a mountaineering guide was- man, scaling Mt. Veil sounded so freaking intense (and I’m sure it was even harder because 1) the people he was guiding weren’t really listening to him and 2) it didn’t seem like they had all that much experience, besides River anyway. Speaking of River, I couldn’t decide whether I liked her or not- most of the time I thought she was a great main character/love interest, but sometimes she annoyed me a little when she didn’t listen to reason, but I understand why she didn’t and why she was so persistent in making that documentary (and that’s a huge sign of Sarah Morgenthaler being a great author). I really liked River and Easton for each other. The plot of Enjoy the View was one of my favorites in the series- I loved all of the mountaineering and everything about Mount Veil. I was never bored during the book and I love how in every book, there’s wildlife that plays a rather large part- I liked the marmot so, so much. Enjoy the View comes out on January 19th, so make sure you check it out then!
