A new life. A secret past…

Can this witness risk opening her heart in her new Alaskan home?

Forced to reinvent herself in witness protection, Isabelle Sanchez begins working for an Alaskan chocolate company under the alias Ella Perez. Her new warmhearted town is a peaceful refuge—as is the company of chocolate empire heir Connor North. She may never be able to tell Connor the truth about her fresh start…but can they find love despite her secrets?

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



Hiding in Alaska is the standalone, fourth book in Belle Calhoune’s Home to Owl Creek series. I’m fairly new to this series and I desperately wanted Connor North to find love and a happy ever after. Hiding in Alaska is his story.

Connor is heir to the North Star Chocolate Company. He’s also known as the most popular bachelor of Owl Creek, Alaska. He’s a good guy who doesn’t trust easily because of what happened to his sister Sage and his family twenty-five years ago. Connor is a man of faith who relies on it to get him through life and its trials and tribulations.

Ella Perez is the new manager of the North Star Chocolate Shop, as well as a new resident of Owl Creek. In fact, Ella Perez is new, period. Ella is the new persona given to Isabelle Sanchez, who is in the witness protection program after testifying against the man who killed her boss in Miami. If there was ever a time to hold onto and draw from your faith, for Ella/Isabelle the time is now.

Ella and Connor share a nice, yet almost embarrassing meet-cute. Ella knows she can’t reveal anything about who she is and thus knows she shouldn’t get involved with anyone. Connor knows Ella is hiding something, and with him demanding total honesty, the two face a conflict. Neither is looking for a relationship but they can’t deny their attraction.

Belle has once again written a good story with great characters. For me, I was conflicted with my feelings for Connor and the way he handled things with Ella. However, I haven’t gone through what he’s been through. Hiding in Alaska gave me more background on Connor’s baby sister Sage, whose family reunion story is told in Her Secret Alaskan Family. Through Connor’s memories, you’re able to truly see how the kidnapping of his sister affected his family and more importantly, him.

I’m excited this series is continuing and I can’t wait to find out who the characters are going to be.
