Sweet romance filled with lots of dark and twisted secondary characters.

Kendall Martin had to change everything from her appearance to her name and knew she needed to move to some place far away. She bought a small trading post and move to a remote village in Alaska to get away from a sadistic man.

As with all small towns things are done differently. It is the Chief of Police Denn Nulo who picks up Kendall from the small airport and welcome’s her to Staamat. Denn is a very nice man who after his mother died he left college to come back and raise his much younger sister who also has diabetes.

Here is where I think the book takes a different twist. Kendall is leery understandably of men but it doesn’t take long for the good looking Denn to prove to her he is not like her ex. There romance is a very sweet one that also involves Kendall bonding with Denn usually surly sister. Kendall and Denn are so happy in their new relationship and both think they have finally found the one but they have no idea of the evil plotting that is going on outside their bubble.

We are given the POV of Kendall’s ex Conrad who is a sick and twisted man and also Wendy who owns the local B&B who has an obsessive crush on Denn which turns out bad for everyone.

In all, this book was a great blend of romance, family, suspense, and murder.

This book grabbed me from the first page! When you’re on the run from an abusive sociopath of an ex-fiance, even a tiny, remote Alaskan village isn’t a safe place to hide.

At least, that’s what the heroine of UNSAFE HAVEN discovers after moving to Staamat, and this place is the definition of remote. Newcomers have to be flown in, because the roads around the town only go so far, and then they just – stop.

UNSAFE HAVEN was part suspense/thriller and part romance. It was a well-written story about two people with their own emotional scars and burdens coming together to find love, even with others set on keeping them apart. Kendall and Denn are realistic, multi-dimensional characters with perfect chemistry. All of the characters in this book popped off the pages, especially Kendall’s ex-fiance Roy. He’s one of the most loathsome villains I’ve read in a long time. Yikes!

UNSAFE HAVEN was a gripping story set in the perfect location. I’m partial to stories set in Alaska, and the author’s rich descriptions of the life and land there added to my enjoyment of the the story. If you’re a fan of romantic suspense novels with truly touching romances, then don’t miss UNSAFE HAVEN.

Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

For Kendall Martin, a remote village in Southwest Alaska seems like a good, safe place to start over. On the run from a dangerously abusive relationship, she leaves everything familiar behind and begins a new life as owner of a small souvenir and sportsman trading post in picturesque Staamat. The locals are friendly, the town welcoming, and she quickly acclimates to the slower, easier pace. When she meets Denn Nulo, Staamat's Chief of Police, Kendall begins to believe there truly are good men in the world. Denn is everything she wants: strong, loving, dedicated to family, protective ... and patient. Instant attraction blooms between them, but Kendall is leery of men, and Denn craves a serious relationship that includes marriage and children. Their courtship is a conflicting mix of hesitancy and passion. As Kendall learns how to trust again and her romance with Denn grows more intense, a local woman who has had her eye on Denn for years releases a torrent of damaging jealousy ... and the nightmare from Kendall's past discovers where she's hidden herself.… (more)
