Product Description

After a failed dig in Honduras, aspiring archaeologist Casper Christiansen heads home to Minnesota to face his unresolved feelings for Raina Beaumont, the woman of his dreams. But when he arrives unannounced on her doorstep, he receives the shock of a lifetime: Raina is pregnant with someone else’s baby.

Heartbroken, especially when he discovers the identity of the baby’s father, Casper tables his dreams and determines to be dependable for once, helping his older brother, Darek, prepare the family resort for its grand reopening. Casper longs to be the hero of at least one family story, but a never-ending Deep Haven winter and costly repairs threaten their efforts—and the future of the resort.

Worse, one of Casper’s new jobs constantly brings him into contact with Raina, whom he can’t seem to forget. A tentative friendship begins to heal fresh wounds, but can they possibly overcome past mistakes and current choices to discover a future together?

The novel starts only a few months after the suspense-driven events of When I Fall in Love, picking up the story with Casper working on an archaeological dig outside Roatan, Honduras. Meanwhile, Raina Beaumont continues to hide the truth of her pregnancy from most of the members of the Christiansen family, with the exception of her boss and roommate, Grace. Casper travels back from his failed treasure hunt just in time for the delivery of Raina’s baby, triggering the eventual return of both Casper and Raina back to the safety of Deep Haven. In their individual pursuits for peace, they find themselves searching for the greatest treasure in the history of the region. Facing an extreme winter, the realities of adulthood, and the family dynamics of the Christiansens, Casper and Raina finally find the hope they seek in the love of God and one another. Ms. Warren, a well-established and talented author, continues her amazing multi-book story arch in Always on My Mind. Personally, I felt that the book functioned as an essential piece of the overall book series, addressing key questions and challenges raised in the earlier novels. However, I enjoyed It Had to Be You and When I Fall in Love more as stand-alone novels. Regardless, Always on My Mind convincingly addressed the Casper/Raina storyline that formed a key part of When I Fall in Love, while opening the door for the telling of Amelia Christiansen’s story in the forthcoming book, The Wonder of You (July 2015). The last page or so of Always on My Mind alone would cause almost anyone to pick up the next book. Overall, I enjoyed this entry into the Christiansen Family chronicles. Thanks!

Always on my Mind was amazing. It's probably the best Christian romance book I've read recently. There was so much to learn from there and I loved the fact that we need to heal from our past and move on. We can't dwell on past mistakes. I loved how the author ended the book on a cliffhanger, begging for more to be told.
