Review: In the Shadow of Denali by:Peterson/Woodhouse

 In the Shadow of Denali (Heart of Alaska #1)
About the Book:
Cassidy Ivanoff and her father John, a wilderness guide, work at a prestigious new hotel outside Mt. McKinley. John's new apprentice, Allan Brennan, finds a friend in Cassidy, but the real reason he's here--to learn the truth about his father's death--is far more dangerous than he knows.

My Review:
 This is the introduction to The Heart of Alaska series. This story takes us all the way back to the early 1900's, when at that time some parts of the United States were still being called their original Native American names. So the area was called Denali but it was at the foot of Mt. McKinley. This is where Cassidy and her father John are employed at a fancy hotel not far from the mountain.

 Allan Brennan, is John's newest apprentice but he isn't here to learn John's craft--he is here to learn more about his father's death. his father also a mountain climber lost his life during a climb on the same mountain that Allan hopes to scale. As time goes along Allan is finding out more and more about the people of this town, and it goes against what he thought he knew.

 Soon, Allan starts to put the pieces together and what he finds out isn't at all what he expected. But no Tracie Peterson novel would be complete without the romance part of the store. There is a definite attraction between Cassidy and Allan, but will Allan set his trust issues aside to escape into this newfound romance?
