Susan May Warren in her new book “Always on My Mind book coverAlways on My Mind” Book Four in the Christiansen Family series published by Tyndale House Publishers takes us into the life of Casper Christiansen.

From the back cover:   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?

I like Deep Haven. I like the Christiansen family. I would stay at their Lodge and try to hang out with them. Right now the Lodge is in trouble. Casper has come home and Darek, who needs his help, is unsure of him. Raina has broken Casper’s heart. Obviously there is a whole lot going on in this book. I really enjoy the Christiansen Family. They are not perfect however they are interesting and I would have no problem having them as my friends.  Ms. Warren does a superb job of making each character, especially Casper and Raina, come alive so much that they seem as if they have been our friends all our lives.  “Always on My Mind” is a wonderful, sweet story with power and depth that will keep you flipping pages.  I recommend this book highly and look forward to the next reunion with the Christiansen Family.
