Daddy's Little Helper by Debbie Macomber
Hard Luck, Alaska Town that Needs Women!
Location: 50 miles north of the Arctic Circle. Population: 150 (mostly men) but growing! Because the O'Halloran brothers, who run a bush-plane charter service called Midnight Sons, are heading a campaign to bring women to Hard Luck!
Mitch Harris, a good friend of the O'Hallorans, he represents law and order in Hard Luck. He's also the widowed father of seven-year-old Chrissie but he never talks about his marriage to Chrissie's mother.
Bethany Ross, Chrissie's teacher, who's new to Alaska. She's attracted to Mitch, really attracted but she's come here for an important reason of her own.
As Christmas comes to Hard Luck, Mitch's daughter redoubles her efforts to find a new wife for her dad and a new mother for her. And she's got Bethany in mind for both roles!
