Review: An Alaskan Secret by Heidi McCahan

About the Book
Coming home as a single dad…

with a seven-year secret

Back home in Hearts Bay, Alaska, Asher Hale’s past has caught up with him. His son Cameron’s new reading tutor, Tess Madden, is actually Cameron's mother—but she doesn't know it. Their teenage romance is one neither has forgotten, but Asher’s secret lies between them. Now he will have to risk it all. Because telling the truth is the only path to a family reunion.

From Love Inspired: Uplifting stories of faith, forgiveness and hope.


I loved this heartwarming tale of forgiveness and second chances. It was my first time reading anything by Heidi McCahan, but it certainly won't be the last.

This story totally flips the secret child trope on its head, with the guy in the know and the heroine in the dark. I've only seen this done one other time, so I was curious about how it would play out. I've gotta say, I thought it was really well done. I was completely engaged and invested in these characters' lives.

I enjoyed the setting and the residents of Hearts Bay, Alaska, and am eager to visit again. I recommend this story to anyone who enjoys sweet contemporary romance.



  1. But how does she not guess that Cameron is her son? You've got me curious. :)

    1. I was super curious about that. I was wondering how in the world would that happen, but it ended up being done really well. I was pleasantly surprised by it all.
