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?
This charming Christian love story with feisty heroine, Eveliina Mikkola is set, surprisingly, in the exotic location of Finland.
Missionary Adam Carter from Africa has been offered the use of the family cottage on a beautiful lake by a close friend of his, who turns out to be Eveliina’s brother, and he plans to spend three weeks there fasting and praying. Unbeknown to her brother, Eveliina needs a break from a stressful job and an equally stressful relationship, and decides that a stay at the beloved family cottage is just what the doctor ordered.
Imagine her surprise when she arrives to find a strange man in the sauna! Handsome and well-proportioned he may be, but Eveliina orders him to leave. Unbelievably he refuses. Never one to accept defeat, Eveliina decides to use every feminine trick in her considerable arsenal to force Adam to leave...and so begins a most entertaining love story.

I was privileged to get an early read on this novel and am so excited for its release. Marion is a fresh voice in Christian contemporary romance and this short novel packs a full-length reader experience into its pages. Humorous, inspired, romantic, and real. Everything I love.

Eveliina has retreated to her grandparents’ island to get away from work and her boss. She’s looking forward to the solitude and some time to do the things she wants, not the things she must. She doesn’t know that her brother has offered the island retreat to a missionary friend as the perfect place for solitude, prayer and fasting. When Eveliina discovers she doesn’t have the island to herself as expected, the complications start multiplying. This story will draw you into the scenery and the characters as well as the plot. For me, it was a one-sitting read. I couldn’t put it down. I loved the look at Finland, a place I will probably never get to visit in any other way. But it feels like I’ve already been there. I can recommend Helsinki Sunrise without hesitation. And I can hardly wait to read Marion Ueckermann’s next story.
