Enjoy the view was a cute book about finding love when it is least expected. This book is the third book in the Mose Springs, Alaska series. I have to be honest with y’all, when I first found this book I had no idea it was part of a series. The good news is I didn’t need to read the earlier books in the series for this book to make sense.


Rivers acting career is becoming washed up. Therefore, she decided to make a career shift to being behind the camera as a producer. She is commissioned to film a documentary about a small town in Alaska to help increase tourism in the area. However, the town folk love living the small-town life and are not at all interested in helping her because they don’t want more tourists in their small town. Not being able to film in town River takes to the wilderness with a local guide, Easton Lockett.

The Good:

This story was an easy quick read. I found my self not wanting to put it down, I think I read it in about 2 days. I loved some of the dialogue in this book, particularly between River and her best friends/crew. River was a sassy, sarcastic, strong, and witty woman who was unwilling to give up on her new dream. The characters overall were well developed for such a short novel. I read this book in December and reading about the cold and snowy weather put me in such a wintery/Christmasy mood.

The Bad:

The main negative for me was just that the book was quite predictable. Most of the “twists” were foreshadow so much that you knew exactly what was coming. Also, while the characters were developed well I didn’t really love the main character much. She could be stubborn and would never listen to anyone else. She always did what she wanted and often put the other characters in a bad position.

Overall, I gave this book a 3.5 out of 5 stars rounded up to 4 because I did enjoy reading it. I would definitely be interested to read the rest of the books in the series. It was a fun read if you are looking for something entertaining but without much depth.
