The Tourist Attraction by Sarah Morgenthaler Review


The Tourist Attraction | Sarah Morgenthaler | Sourcebooks Casablanca | Pub: 5/5/20


“I’m pretty sure being in the middle of the wilderness with a stranger thousands of miles away from everything I know pretty much entails that I am all about the adventure.”

Now, I knew I loved Alaska Romances when I read The Simple Wild and Wild at Heart By K.A. Tucker. Which after reading The Simple Wild was when I decided I needed to read ALL the outdoor romance books I could find. (That is what I call these books, they may go by a different name but…)

Here comes The Tourist Attraction. It takes us to Moose Springs, Alaska. A tiny town with a giant resort and lots of tourists that the locals don’t like.

Graham runs a diner called The Tourist Trap and he has a strict rule that he doesn’t like tourists. Lana has been a tourist for years and this time she brought her friend Zoey… Graham wanted to break all his rules for her.

This book was cheesy cute, think Hallmark movies, and I think that was part of the appeal for me. Besides falling in love with Moose Springs and all the characters. Truly, I loved all the characters which is exceedingly rare for me. Also, there is a dog in the book who is blind and cute and honestly, he was the BEST character. Anyway, loved the book. Uber cheese. Lots of snark and sarcasm. I laughed a lot.

The only thing I didn’t really love was we never really find out why Graham hates tourists so much and wants nothing to do with them. I mean there was a part where they talk about how tourists caused a drunk driving accident once, but it doesn’t specifically come out why Graham hates them. So, I was waiting for that to drop but it never came.

But my love for Moose Springs is real because I immediately started the next book in the series, Mistletoe & Mr. Right (review coming this week as well since I have like 100 pages left and I started yesterday), and I preordered book 3, Enjoy the View (release date 1/19/21).

If you read these, I hope you fall in love with Moose Springs as much as I did.

Synopsis (Credit: Goodreads)

He had a strict "no tourists" policy...
Until she broke all of his rules.

When Graham Barnett named his diner The Tourist Trap, he meant it as a joke. Now he's stuck slinging reindeer dogs to an endless parade of resort visitors who couldn't interest him less. Not even the sweet, enthusiastic tourist in the corner who blushes every time he looks her way...

Two weeks in Alaska isn't just the top item on Zoey Caldwell's bucket list. It's the whole bucket. One look at the mountain town of Moose Springs and she's smitten. But when an act of kindness brings Zoey into Graham's world, she may just find there's more to the grumpy local than meets the eye...and more to love in Moose Springs than just the Alaskan wilderness.
