About The Book:
When a letter comes from her father saying he’s found a treasure for her, spinster Sara McGuiness escapes the Philadelphia home she shares with her domineering aunt and travels to Yukon Territory.

She finds her father on his deathbed, cared for by a quiet, tormented mountain man called Bear. Bear has no wish for company since the death of his wife and child, and is eager for Sara to board a ship bound for anywhere but there.

Forced to winter together, Bear and Sara fight their attraction and the elements in the harsh northern land.

The Review:
A Treasure for Sara is a sweet historical romance set in one of my favorite areas, the Yukon. Knight captures the rugged land and animals well, often describing the beauty as well as the harshness.
Sara and Bear are likeable enough characters, each with pasts, which offer plausible conflict. I didn’t feel like I connected enough with them to really pull me into the story and want them to get their happily ever after. On occasion, Sara’s thoughts state the obvious, which slowed things down a bit, but overall the story was enjoyable.
I think most readers of sweet romance would enjoy this read, and I think if Miss Knight lands a great editor who can tighten some of the weak spots, she’ll be getting five-star reviews.
