A woman struggling to raise her daughter alone in a small Alaskan town finds her simple existence upended when the father of her child returns. . . .
Sweet Home, Alaska, was once a thriving, idyllic town, where A Stone's Throw Hardware and Haberdashery and the Sisterhood of the Quilt were the cornerstones of the community. Then, in one fatal moment, two young lives were cut short, and everything changed. Now the Stone family businesses have closed, the diner is in the red, and the population has dwindled to 573.
After the tragic accident that took her sister's life, Hope McKnight discovered she was pregnant, and gave up her dreams of college to raise her daughter. When Donovan Stone returns to sell his family's properties and to cut final ties with Sweet Home, he's shocked to find Hope still there--and a single mother. The pull between Hope and Donovan is as powerful as ever. But so are the secrets and lies stemming from that long-ago tragedy. Will they be able to overcome the past, or will the heartbreak of bygone days destroy their love again?

This is the first book in the Sweet Home, Alaska series. The story takes us to the quaint town of Sweet Home. Population 573.
Griffin introduces us to Holly, a single mom who gave up college to raise her young daughter. She has worked at the local market since she was a teen. She carries the weight of a terrible tragedy. One that left her estranged from her mother and drove the only boy she ever loved away. Now he is returning home.
If you love women’s fiction, puppies and small communities, you are going to love this tale. I thought I’d be angry at Holly, but Griffin made me respect her. Her life hasn’t been easy, but she has done the best she could, on her own with her chin held high. She also works hard to improve the lives of others in her community.
I love meddlesome town folks and stories with all the feels. I laughed, felt the characters’ pain and held my breath, hoping for a happily ever after. Griffin shared a wonderful story about these characters, but she also called attention to some issues these struggling towns face from addiction to economic depression.
I loved Sweet Home, Alaska and want to book a cabin. Oh, and I officially want to cuddle Boomer, the Bernese puppy. If you’re looking for a sweet romance with family, townfolk and lots of feels you’ll want to grab One Snowy Night.Are you in the mood for a low angst, feel good romance?
