Two sisters from Texas find themselves exiled to Alaska . . . and thrown into the arms of two very different men.

Tori and McKenna St. James have been living comfortably on their trust funds in Dallas. But their uncle Monty, keeper of the purse strings, decides to push them out of their comfort zones by requiring them to spend one year in Alaska or lose their inheritance. Initially the sisters are stunned, but they aren't willing to back down from the challenge.

Tori is sent to a primitive homestead outside the tiny town of Sweet Home. She had been prepared to forego fashion magazines and lattes, but not electricity and running water! Will her rugged wilderness guide, Jesse Montana, teach her to survive, or send her fleeing back to civilization? Meanwhile, outdoorsy McKenna is stuck within the concrete walls of an Anchorage bank. Her sexy boss Luke McAvoy is tasked with teaching her the business but what he’s really doing is tempting her. Not that she’s the type to fall for a stuffed suit like him.

Tori and McKenna find much needed solace with Sweet Home’s Sisterhood of the Quilt. Will this crafty group of women be up to the challenge of teaching two outsiders how to sew—and perhaps how to love?

ROMANCE Small-town Sweet yummy alpha

Tori and McKenna St. James of Dallas, Texas are trust fun babies thanks to their Uncle Morty. They have housing that is paid for and credit cards for monthly expenses, but all that changes when their Uncle cuts them off and sends them to live in Alaska for a year.

McKenna is sent to Anchorage to work in a bank. Now McKenna is the outdoors type and a runner..so not a city girl. Tori on the other hand, loves fashion, city life and beauty accessories. She is sent to Sweet Home to be a homesteader..living off the land. Thankfully, neither is a spoiled brat, and I actually liked them.

Uncle Morty arranged for the head of the bank, Luke McAvoy, to teach her the business and Jesse Montana will teach Tori how to live off the land, avoid bears, garden, fish and shoot.

This was a sweet story, and I loved daily life on the homestead, sans the outhouse and community shower, at the local grocer. Tori was a trooper, especially for someone who doesn’t know how to cook and has never even started a fire.

Most of the story centered on Tor and Jesse, but we got chapters about McKenna and Luke who end of spending some time with the others. I wanted to slap Jesse and McKenna a time or two for their denials and lack of communication, but wished for happily ever afters.

While a little predictable, I found myself caught up in the community quilting group, the building romances and Uncle Morty’s intentions. I even learned a little, which is always fun.

If you are looking for a feel good romance(s) with a small-town feel and love Alaskan settings like I do, you’ll enjoy Once Upon a Cabin.

About Patience Griffin

Patience Griffin

Award-winning author Patience Griffin has been writing and sewing her whole life but didn’t discover her love of quilting until her late thirties. She decided the best way to acquire her first quilt was to make one for herself. At nearly the same time, she started commuting three and half hours a day for her dream engineering job. To pass the time on the long drive, she got hooked on audiobooks—especially books with love stories. Within a couple of years, she was writing stories of her own. It was no surprise to her family and friends when she combined her love of quilting, her small town roots, and her obsession with Scottish romances into novels.

    This sounds like a nice and easy going one set in one of my favorite spots. Too bad about the lack of communication, but the rest of the set up sounds good.
