He traveled 3,800 miles to be alone

…but is it what he really wants?

Relocating to Alaska after a family tragedy seemed an ideal way for author R.D. “Mac” Macleod to grieve in peace. But solitude feels overrated when Mac’s around B&B owner Ursula Anderson and her orphaned goddaughter, Rory, who’s already bonding with his dog. Worse, he’s imagining a future with Ursula and Rory. Is it time to finally forgive himself?



It was early afternoon when Mac appeared on her doorstep, grinning. “Penny tells me it’s safe to come out of hiding.” Beside him, Blossom wagged her tail as though she thought it a fine joke.

Ursula ushered them in.

“I can’t believe you pulled this off.” Mac hung his coat on a hook by the door. “So far, I’ve only gotten hints. Tell me the details of this devious and brilliant plan of yours.”

She laughed. “It wasn’t that brilliant. When the reporter stopped by asking for you, I sent him to Marge, at the Caribou. She told him you’d talked to Penny at the Tourist Information Office.”

“Which is why I got the call from Penny telling me about a cabin owned by someone named Bill.”

“Right. Bill has a remote cabin about fifteen miles in. On Penny’s recommendation, the reporter hired Barb, a local musher, to take him to the cabin. Meanwhile, Bill flew out and planted a guidebook about Kodiak Island, bookmarked by a brochure with the name of a lodge there. Also, an empty pickle jar. According to Terry, the owner of the used book store, you’re well-known for your love of pickles.”

Mac chuckled. “I happened to mention in some interview I was fond of baby dills. Next thing I know, people from all over the world were sending me jars of their favorite pickles. I was even asked to judge the pickles at the Oklahoma State Fair. Everybody seems to think I spend all day eating pickles.”

“Well it worked. Barb says he swallowed it hook, line and sinker. The story, not the pickles, although he got excited when he saw the jar. He scheduled a flight out of Anchorage and he’s on his way to Kodiak Island.”

“And what happens when I’m not there?”

“The innkeeper is a friend of mine. He’s going to say a guest of your general description was tired of winter and talking about going to Seattle or possibly Hawaii. Which is true, except the guest happened to be an old friend of his from Anchorage.”

“I can’t believe they went to so much trouble to help me out.”

“It wasn’t completely altruistic. Barb got paid for mushing him to the cabin. She’d been playing with the idea of doing tours and so this was a trial run for her. She says it went great. Nate at the outfitters sold him bunny boots and arctic gear. And Bill has sprained his arm patting himself on the back about his success in setting up the cabin.”

“I suppose the only drawback is that now they all know I’m here.”

“Oh, they already knew. Terry says he spotted you buying groceries weeks ago. Word got around. It’s just that Alaskans figure if you want privacy, they’ll leave you alone.”

He chuckled. “All but you, I guess.”
