Susan May Warren in her new book “You're the One that I Want book coverYou’re The One That I Want” Book Six in the Christiansen Family series published by Tyndale House Publishers takes us into the life of Owen Christiansen.

From the back cover:   Owen Christiansen has been in a downward spiral since an injury ended his NHL career. But a job on an Alaskan crabbing boat offers a fresh start . . . maybe even a shot at romance with Elise “Scotty” McFlynn, the captain’s daughter.

Used to being one of the guys, to never relying on anyone, Scotty doesn’t believe in happily ever after―especially with someone like Owen. Her instinct is confirmed when Casper Christiansen arrives to drag his prodigal brother home, bringing with him a truckload of family drama―and even worse, the news that Casper is wanted for questioning in connection to a crime back in Minnesota.

But Owen is more than the sum of his mistakes, a truth both he and Scotty discover when she escorts both brothers to Deep Haven as part of her new job on the Anchorage police force. Thrust into an unfamiliar world of family, faith, and fresh starts, Scotty begins to see potential for a happy ending . . . if she’s brave enough to embrace it.

The action starts in Alaska. There is a lot going on and the action zips along nicely. Then Casper comes to collect his brother and bring him home and the scene shifts to Deep Haven. “Scotty” goes with them due to her new job on the Anchorage police force. That is what makes this book so much fun. Obviously there is a whole lot going on in this book. I really enjoy the Christiansen family. Did I mention that this is a romance? Right now the main focus is on Elise “Scotty”, Owen and Casper. The Christiansen Family 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 “Scotty”, Owen and Casper, come alive so much that they seem as if they have been our friends all our lives. “You’re The One That I Want” is a wonderful, sweet story with power and depth that will keep you flipping pages.  I am sorry that this series is ending however I do look forward to the next offering from the highly talented Ms. Warren.
