Welcome to the Blog + Review Tour for Right Here Waiting by Michelle Sass Aleckson presented by Susan May Warren, hosted by JustRead Publicity Tours!
ABOUT THE BOOK
She doesn’t belong in his world—but she’s determined to try.Sled dog musher and outdoor adventurer Nick Dahlquist doesn’t mean to be a loner—he just feels at home in the woods, with his dogs, and online in his vlogging world, where he’s amassed nearly a million viewers. But he’s just a simple guy, with simple goals—care for his dogs, teach people how to survive the cold, and run the Iditarod. Unfortunately, life turns cold when his lead dog is injured, and he’s low on funds. Good thing he has LadyJHawk to chat with. She’s become an online friend he can turn to, and he’s starting to need her more than he’d like to admit. But the last thing he wants is for some random woman to show up on his doorstep… Chopper pilot and Texas gal Jae Lynn Washington has been following Nick’s DogQuest videos and Get Lost in the Woods vlogs since she inherited her deceased boyfriend’s military working dog. Three years later, his online friendship has made her wonder if he could be more than a friend. What if she moved to Deep Haven? Would that be considered stalking, even if she got a bonafide job on the Crisis Response Team? When Jae shows up in Deep Haven—and on Nick’s doorstep—he’s not at all the man she met online. And when Nick is tapped to train the team, he’s pretty sure petite, summer-loving Jae won’t last a moment in the brutal cold—a fear he pours out to LadyJHawk. As their training takes a personal turn, their chilly start begins to thaw. But what will happen if he discovers that Jae and LadyJHawk are one and the same? When a blizzard strikes, and the CRT is called out into the storm, more than just their relationship is at risk… Cozy up to this delightful twist on You’ve Got Mail set in the snowy escape of Deep Haven.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS
Right Here Waiting by Michelle Sass Aleckson is the sixth book in the Deep Haven Collection, from Susan May Warren. Nick Dahlquist is a dog musher and on the verge of losing everything. Jae Lynn Washington has been admiring Nick from a distance, following his social media, and messaging with him for over a year. When she’s hired as the new CRT helicopter pilot in Deep Haven, she means to tell Nick she’s the one to whom he’s been writing, but circumstances keep her quiet.
I love snowy stories and stories about dogs and dog sledders and ones with winter survival and Right Here Waiting has all of that! It was such an engaging story that had me rooting for both characters, and their dogs. I wasn’t as fond of how long Jae kept her secret… but I loved the twist of how they were writing to each other way before they ever met. And the ending has an awesome cameo from one of Susan May Warren’s other books. No spoilers, though!
If you love snow dog stories, this is a wonderful book. I hope you’ll enjoy it, too!
