River and Easton were total opposites but I loved their dynamic. His reserved protectiveness + her headstrong determination + a lot of witty banter = the perfect combination. Easton, in general, makes me want to find my own Alaskan mountain man! I also loved the setting. I never thought I'd enjoy reading a book about climbing a mountain but Enjoy The View proved me wrong. The writing was descriptive enough that I felt like I was on the mountain alongside them.
So, if you're looking for a quick romance read that'll transport you to a mountaintop in Alaska. this is the book for you!
Thank you to NetGalley and Sourcebooks Casablanca for the ARC - all opinions are my own.
So, River Lane is an actress determined to film a documentary in Moose Springs, specifically one that centres around climbing Mount Veil. With what seems like the weather, the camera crew and River all fighting against him, their mountain guide Easton fights tooth and nail to get them up and down the mountain safely.
Things I loved: Alaska! At a time when travelling is a far-off possibility, (lockdown sucks!) getting to explore the beautiful scenery within the pages made this a perfect armchair escape. I loved finding out more about Easton in this book, his love of mountain climbing and the ascent up Mount Veil made me yearn to travel to Alaska just to climb the gorgeous, yet dangerous mountain myself. As always, the elements of humour made this a light-hearted read, which I enjoyed.
So apart from the fact that I wasn’t really invested in River and Easton’s romantic relationship, it was an good read. I think River just irked me a little too much, unfortunately. With that said, definitely give this book a read if you enjoyed the previous books in the Moose Springs series!
Former actress River Lane is trying her hand at directing. She is assigned a documentary which showcases a town called Moose Springs, however the town doesn't want her or her film crew around. To get around permit rules, River takes a tour up a mountain with an attractive man she meets, Easton Lockett. A few hiccups push them closer together and put their attraction to the test.
This is a very cute romcom, number 3 in the Moose Springs, Alaska series. This is my least favourite in the series, I didn't like River at all. I couldn't get around her character no matter how hard I tried. I liked the humour in the book, but it felt few and far between, in amongst over-described scenes.
Easton is a saving grace for this book, his character was surprising and charming.
Just to note, I read this book before I read the first and second in the series. I didn't find I needed to read the books in order to follow along.

I laughed, I cried, and I dealt with my heart in my mouth so many times and even read with just one eye open on occasion because I thought I couldn’t take anymore. I was fully convinced not everyone was making it to the end of this book.
Sarah is super talented. Her books leave me a little bit speechless. I can’t wait to see what she does next.
I really liked Easton in the first two books and the beginning of this one, but by the end of the book, I had lost all respect for him too. Because he thought with his little head rather than his big head, he allowed River and her crew to run roughshod over him. He's supposed to be a professional, yet he let them disregard his rules and warnings with no consequences. It was infuriating. I know this is supposed to be fiction, but none of the constant rulebreaking was funny or added to the story, except to put them all in situations where one or more would get hurt or worse. One thing if there was an avalanche or storm they couldn't avoid, but when the danger comes from their repeated disregard of safety rules, it makes for a silly story.
When you add in that there wasn't much of a romance, I was really disappointed. The lust pretty much stayed lust. Though this is a clean book, it was obvious the couple never tried to learn much about each other despite being very different persons. They never talked about the future, the kind of things they might pursue if they were really in love.
Then they changed the documentary into a Hallmark movie. For me, that was the final reason I needed not to buy any more books from this author. It makes me sad because I thought she had a lot of promise with The Tourist Attraction, but the direction she's going with the series is just not for me.
This is the third book in the series. They can each be read as standalones.
I confess, I have a love/hate relationship with this series. There are things I absolutely love, and things I really dislike.
For the most part I love the men in this series. They are your typical growly alpha mountain men (except Rick in book two, he was very sweet). Easton is a big bear of a man, that appears to be grumpy, but deep down is a teddy bear.
I love Jake. The blind border collie that has a better wardrobe than most humans. He has appeared in each book and just steals every scene he’s in.
I love the quirky little Alaska town this series takes place in. The love hate thing they have going on with the tourists. They need the dollars they spend, but hate being overrun by them. So when River comes to town to do a film for the tourism department, she is not welcome.
I love the wildlife encounters. Ulysses the moose from the first book. And Easton’s lovesick marmot in this one. It was hilarious.
What I dislike are the heroines. These women drove me nuts. They are so hyper focused on their own wants and needs they completely overlook everything else. They lose all of their common sense. Get tunnel vision, and put others at risk to do their own thing. River, was the worst. She not only put herself in danger but her entire team as well. Just so she could satisfy her need to climb. Even though she had no experience climbing on ice, she ignored the experts advise and did her own thing.
I was also confused about River’s “drawl”. When she gets angry her “drawl” gets thicker. I’ve spent a lot of time in Wyoming, they don’t typically speak with a drawl. Just because they live and work on a ranch, that doesn’t necessarily mean they’ll speak with a drawl.
The ending of this book was odd. It was very fluid, and by that I mean, there is no real concrete place Easton and River end up in. They are literally everywhere, Alaska, Wyoming, and wherever their travels take them. I wanted something more permanent, but maybe that didn’t fit these two characters personalities.
It was not a terrible book. It was very funny. And well written.
It is a clean read, very little cursing, no sex scenes.
Enjoy the View is book three, with Easton Lockett as the star local and River Lane as the tourist. Met Easton in book one, of course, and he is the local star tracker and mountaineer. River is an actress – the ‘tourist’ – that everyone thinks is out of her comfort zone. Little does anyone know that she is right in her element.
These two have quite the adventure! There’s a climb up Mt. Veil that Easton is leading and River is documenting. REALLY simple explanation but both these characters learn a lot about themselves in the process. Of course, they learn a ton about each other, too. I was dismayed, at times, with River’s refusal to take Easton’s warnings and advice seriously enough; she sometimes put her film above safety and caution. I will admit, I was Team Eason all the way.
More Moose Springs characters show up again and there is much solidarity, love, teasing/torture (depends upon how you look at it), and (I’m going there) bull-headedness to go around. And let’s not forget the hilarity…I’ll just warn you to look out for the marmot. OMG, absolute craziness!
Loved this story and will preorder the next book. Really funny voice and heartwarming story.
