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!
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.
