A Wonderful Novel of Romantic Intrigue May 14 2013
By RLynne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I loved everything about this book, including the beautiful cover! Photo-journalist Kelly Sheffield is offered a chance to cover American science teams in Greenland. When she looks at the list of scientists which she'll be interviewing, she sees that Jordan Westgate, a glaciologist, is the leader of a team. When Kelly was in college, she had a terrific crush on Jordan Westgate, and took all of the courses Jordan taught. Not only is this assignment the trip of a lifetime, it is also a chance to reconnect with Dr. Westgate.

Kelly Sheffield and Jordan Westgate are beautifully developed characters with many strengths as well a some flaws. They are bright, interesting women. McCoy also gives readers some wonderful side characters in the journalist with Kelly, the members of Westgate's scientific team, and Pippa, a native Greenlander.

Author Robbi McCoy has been to Greenland, and gives her readers a wonderful look at both the country and it's people. She also, without being preachy/teachy, casually gives readers many interesting scientific facts about glaciors, icebergs, etc. A side story includes a dream sequence which takes readers back to the time when the Vikings were settling in Greenland, and includes a plausible explanation for what happened to them! This side story is beautifully woven into the main story, without breaking the flow of the plot. McCoy is an award winning author for her novels Not Every River and Spring Tide. I think we'll see a thrid award for her with this novel!

This Reads like a Love Letter to Greenland, not a Lesbian Romance. The Romance Entirely Takes Backseat to the Locale! July 6 2013
By Laine - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I spent page after page waiting for a romance to bloom and fall in love with, but after I was over 80% through the book, I knew I'd be disappointed when it finally arrived. I didn't care for Pipa's Asa flashbacks. I actually began skipping those chapters as I found them irrelevant to the main characters. To be honest, the Asa dreams bored me. I enjoyed the "idea" of Kelly and Jordan finally making it work, but I couldn't feel the need or the passion b/w the characters. It wasn't a riveting love story. At most, it was a fine description of Greenland's topography, geography, and it's cultural history. However, I didn't purchase or read this book to get a lesson on Greenland. I wanted a romantic love story first, and a nice location as the backdrop. Greenland is the star/main character of this book, not Kelly or Jordan. For that reason, I'm disappointed. It is well written, but I definitely need to begin a new title to wash away the poor taste in my mouth this book has left lingering.

This is how a good story in a wonderful place is written! May 28 2013
By L. Figueroa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The other reviewers who also enjoyed this book provide an accurate description of the story. I would just like to add that this is the only book I have ever read where I made a promise to myself to go visit the area - Greenland - in order to see the glaciers and experience a summer in a strange and wonderful place. There were actually several stories interleaved and told in a delightful and engaging manner. The writing and story is above average for this type of genre. The depth of the characters written, the situations and their reactions and interactions were all spot on and felt real. This type of writing should be an example for all aspiring writers in this genre. "This is how you do it!" I look forward to the next book by this author.

"Melt" is another winner May 27 2013
By WhyMe Marie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Robbi McCoy's newest novel "Melt" is another compelling novel by this delightful writer. As in all her novels, she creates a new world, a world in which we view the vivid settings--we can almost feel the ice--and hear and see both major and minor characters. We understand the concerns of both the inhabitants and the outsiders who arrive there. In this novel there are two Greenlands, the Greenland of the modern romance and the Greenland of the ancient Vikings, and Ms. McCoy is able to join these two in a surprising but plausible way. Her style is graceful and thoughtful, with a pleasing touch of humor.

Beautiful story well told Aug. 29 2013
By Peter Cassar-Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The main characters created by Robbi have great depth, with back stories critical to the unfolding of the central love theme. But this is also true of the supporting cast who are given interesting and accomplished lives and desires and interact With the story line in meaningful ways, making the personal level of the book well crafted and convincing. The science didn't need to be super detailed, it's melting ice, we can all get that, so the science becomes a part of the background without overwhelming the story, and provides the wonderful metaphors of thawing and melting that get paralleled in the physical and emotional themes of the story. Probably the most important thing was that I cared about the characters and became bewitched by the wonderfully human interactions between ttem. I super recommend this, it's a lovely story.
