Always on my Mind by Susan May Warren

After a failed dig in Honduras, aspiring archaeologist Casper Christiansen heads home to Minnesota to face his unresolved feelings for Raina Beaumont, the woman of his dreams. But when he arrives unannounced on her doorstep, he receives the shock of a lifetime: Raina is pregnant with someone else’s baby.

Heartbroken, especially when he discovers the identity of the baby’s father, Casper tables his dreams and determines to be dependable for once, helping his older brother, Darek, prepare the family resort for its grand reopening. Casper longs to be the hero of at least one family story, but a never-ending Deep Haven winter and costly repairs threaten their efforts—and the future of the resort.

Worse, one of Casper’s new jobs constantly brings him into contact with Raina, whom he can’t seem to forget. A tentative friendship begins to heal fresh wounds, but can they possibly overcome past mistakes and current choices to discover a future together?

This is the continuing saga of the Christiansen family.  Casper is the middle of the boys.  Big brother Darek is running Evergreen Lodge and Owen the former hockey star is still running.   Casper can’t seem to get Raina out of his mind or heart.  He feels betrayed by her and especially when he discovers her pregnant.  Raina doesn’t feel like she is loved by anyone especially doesn’t see how God could love someone like her.  Casper and Raina form a tentative truce when they work on solving a mystery of the disappearance of US Bonds long lost. 

I love Susan May Warren books and have been anxiously awaiting the next book in this series.  This is the fourth book in the series.  It is not necessary to read the other books, but it would be helpful as the other characters stories are continued in this book.   Now I am waiting for the next installment in the Christiansen family.

I was given this book by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  I was not compensated in any way.
