A novel

Author: Mix Hart

Ready for romance and adventure, two sisters take summer jobs as live-in waitresses on the edge of the Arctic Circle.  The big-city girls soon learn that the Klondike still exists, and that everyone at the Hotel Beringia seems to have a hidden agenda.

An outpost on the remote Dempster Highway, Hotel Beringia is the only stop for truckers, highway workers, adventurous tourists and scientists, serviced by staff who are all trying to get away from something. It’s the 80s and everyone wants a piece of the Arctic, whether or not it’s theirs to take.

Sisters Rumer and Charlotte each find romance in the midst of intrigue, but when Charlotte vanishes with her unsuitable lover, Rumer is the only “Klondike geisha” around and begins to wonder whether her attractive scientist is as honourable as he appears.

This is at once mystery and comedy, set during a pivotal time for women in the north and the drive to exploit the riches of the Arctic and its peoples.
