Helsinki Sunrise

He needed the island to himself. So did she.

Three weeks alone at a friend’s summer cottage on a Finnish lake to fast and pray. That was Adam Carter’s plan. But sometimes plans go awry.

On an impromptu trip to her family’s secluded summer cottage, the last thing Eveliina Mikkola expected to find was a missionary from the other side of the world—in her sauna.

Determined to stay, Eveliina will do whatever it takes—from shortcrust pastry to shorts—to send the man of God packing. This island’s too small for them both.

Adam Carter, however, is not about to leave.

Will he be able to resist her temptations? Can she withstand his prayers?

“Helsinki Sunrise is full of energy. Eveliina and Adam separately seek out the cabin as a retreat, but together they learn to face the source of their anxieties. The story whisks you along on their bumpy road to a satisfying and inspiring ending.” ~ Sara Goff, Author

“Loved this story of two people finding God’s will for their lives, one looking for it and the other running as fast and hard as she can away from it. I loved the way the strong-willed Eveliina is determined to undermine Adam’s resolve to fast and pray by cooking his favorite foods. And the setting was so awesome. The delightful descriptions of the Finnish setting made me want to visit. Marion Ueckermann did a superb job with this story. This was my first time to read one of her stories but it won’t be the last!” ~ Patricia Bradley, Author

“This is a really fun book. It packs a lot of romance and laughs for a novella length work and I absolutely love the sparks and the chemistry between Adam and Eveliina. While I typically shy from books in foreign settings, this one is great because I get just enough a taste of Finland to feel I really have been there without it overpowering the story. Really looking forward to more in this line and from this author.” ~ Nancy Kimball, Author
