“People who suffer a loss go through the five stages of grief—denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. I’ve lived through these stages with the death of my grandparents, and while there was a small part of me that had already prepared myself for those losses, there was one I wasn’t expecting—my parents. At least not by my hand.”
Journalist Megan Young loves to get the scoop on a story. The only problem is the stories are always local and easy. Since losing her parents in a horrific car accident while she was driving, Megan isn’t much about traveling, taking risks, or being adventurous. Her life now dwells in the known, and it’s not long before her fiancé, Patrick, feeling the need for more adventure calls off their engagement.
When a story comes across her desk about the Iditarod Dog Sled race in Alaska, Megan decides to throw caution to the wind and heads up to the last frontier, intent on not only covering the race, but securing the first-ever interview with the five-time champion, and favored to win, Nicolas Stone. No one knows why he won’t speak to the press, but Megan is determined to figure out his secrets and get the story of a lifetime.
