You're the One That I Want by Susan May Warren

Owen Christiansen has been in a downward spiral since an injury ended his NHL career. But a job on an Alaskan crabbing boat offers a fresh start…maybe even a shot at romance with Elise “Scotty” McFlynn, the captain’s daughter.

Used to being one of the guys, to never relying on anyone, Scotty doesn’t believe in happily ever after – especially with someone like Owen. Her instinct is confirmed when Casper Christiansen arrives to drag his prodigal brother home, bringing with him a truckload of family drama – and even worse, the news that Casper is wanted for questioning in connection to a crime back in Minnesota.

But Owen is more than the sum of his mistakes, a truth both he and Scotty discover when she escorts both brothers to Deep Haven as part of her new job on the Anchorage police force. Thrust into an unfamiliar world of family, faith, and fresh starts, Scotty begins to see potential for a happy ending…if she’s brave enough to embrace it.

The final one of Susan May Warren’s Christiansen Family books, You’re the One That I Want tells a story I’ve been waiting eagerly to read. Having read and loved all the previous Christiansen Family novels and also seeing Owen’s appearances within them, I have been interested to discover the course his story would take. I’m glad it did not disappoint - and it was certainly worth the wait. As Owen returns home to Deep Haven, along with Scotty, a fabulous new female character, and several of the series’ building issues finally get faced, this book offers readers everything expected from one of Warren’s books - romance, drama, spiritual growth, and a satisfying series conclusion. Fans of the Christiansen Family and Deep Haven will not want to miss You’re the One That I Want - I highly recommend it.

Thanks to Tyndale BlogNetwork, I received a copy of You’re the One That I Want and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
