Book Description

May 14 2013
When photo-journalist Kelly Sheffield is offered the chance to travel to Greenland for coverage of American science teams, she grabs it. Not only is it a dream assignment, it also means she'll have a chance to reconnect with the compelling Jordan Westgate, the glaciologist studying the melting ice cap.

Jordan hasn't forgotten Kelly, nor has she forgotten that she'd found it hard, all those years ago, to firmly reject the inappropriate overtures from a student. This Kelly—self-assured, successful, and even more attractive—is a threat to Jordan's equilibrium, something she simply can't allow.

Kelly finds the frozen landscape a match for Jordan's chilly attitude. But Greenland is a surprising land of beauty and danger where even the iciest heart can melt.

From the award-winning author of Not Every River and Spring Tide!

5.0 out of 5 stars 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!

2.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent scenic romance May 27 2013
By TerryB - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Photo Journalist, Kelly Sheffield, jumps at the chance of a trip to Greenland to cover the American Science teams. It's an assignment of a lifetime. Not only that, it means Kelly can once again meet with Jordan Westgate, a glaciologist studying the melting ice cap. Kelly had a major crush on Jordan when she was her student and has never forgotten her. Will Jordan remember her?

Jordan has never forgotten Kelly. She'd found it really difficult to resist the allure of her forward, irresistible student. But she knew she couldn't allow anything to happen between them.

When Kelly and Jordan meet again, Jordan finds Kelly at the age of thirty, even more attractive. She's successful, beautiful and oozes confidence. But still Jordan can't allow Kelly to get close to her. Why is Jordan holding back?

Despite both women being attracted to each other, it begins to look as though they will part forever when Kelly leaves Greenland for home. Will Jordan's icy heart melt along with the ice in Greenland and allow her to accept Kelly's love and love her back? Or will she remain the ice queen?

Yet another winner from Robbi McCoy. A beautifully written page turner from start to finish.

Both Kelly and Jordan are multifaceted, easy to get to know characters amongst a wealth of well formed friends and colleagues to enhance the story and progress it forward.

The scenic descriptions of Greenland were so well written, they had me shivering and reaching for a jacket. I was transported in amongst the characters and living the story with them.

This is more than just one present day story. There is also a dreamlike fantasy, which dates back to the days of the Vikings settling in Greenland. It is a story which could quite conceivably be a true account from the way it is written. Who knows? This dream is very cleverly interspersed in with the main story and it's seamlessly done so that it doesn't interfere with the main plot or detract from your reading pleasure.

As with all the rest of Robbi McCoy's books, you never know what theme you are getting. They are all so different. The one thing I do know when picking up one of Robbi's books, is that I'll be in for a jolly good read. I can't wait now to see what will be next.

5.0 out of 5 stars "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.
