    enjoyable romantic suspense

    Montana Veterinarian Lily Monroe thought when she married Sean that her husband was a nice guy. That changes from the moment they honeymoon as he turns out to be a shady character committing atrocities. When Sean became ill, Lily nursed him until he died. Rancher Derek Wright fell in love with Lily before she married, but stepped aside because he thought that she would be better off with Sean. He plans to marry her after they complete the Iditarod. Lily thinks the wealthy Derek is womanizing when he goes on frequent trips. She does not know is that he is not a skirt chaser since he met Lily and he works undercover for the federal Terrorist Force Logistical Assault Command.---- The Alaskan climate is not the only thing attacking the two as someone tries to kill Lily. Derek believes that he is the cause of her woes as a deadly terrorist has been reported in Alaska. Unbeknownst to him Lily may be in danger because of what she knows involving a fake breeding of a bull. What Derek does know is that he will risk his life willingly to keep his beloved Lily safe.---- ON THIN ICE is an enjoyable romantic suspense that uses the Iditarod as a backdrop, but the vividly descriptive race does not supersede the intrigue and the romance. The lead couple is a delightful pairing as Derek will move Mount McKinley if it means that Lily is his partner forever, but he also needs to overcome her concept of him. The attempts on her life add suspense, but the race serves as the center of a fine second chance to find love that eluded them the first time around.---- Harriet Klausner

    Good Fluff

    By the time I read this book, I'd been reading this author's work for a few days. The thing that struck me the most was how similar the characters seemed to be after the first reading. When I went back a second time to read more slowly/carefully, I found the the differences were subtle enough to not be obvious to me the first time and that disturbed me a little bit. Even now, I feel that they were, perhaps, just a little too much the alike.

    In many ways, I felt as though this book was fluff, which, when I bought and read it, was just what I wanted. I'm not sure if it was the story (as I examine my thoughts about the book, I'm not sure I can explain what was so fluffy about the book) or if it was just that my head felt a little fluffy after the pace at which I was reading the story.

    On Thin Ice

    The only love Dr Lily Munroe wanted was that of her patients, mute animals. Derek Wright, co owner of her ranch and constant thorn in her side, has a very different idea. He's wanted Lily since he first laid eyes on her and she ran the other way to another man and diseaster of a marriage. The upcoming Iditarod will give him the chance to change her mind. Needing her skills as a vet gives him an excuse to stay close as the power of nature makes the race perilous and an unseen enemy compounds the danger. Derek's secret life is forced into the open when he and Lily become targets as someone tries to kill them accidentally on purpose. Just when Lily begins to fall in love against her will, the safest thing Derek can do is keep her away from himself. **** The thrills of challenging nature combined with a battle against human evil makes for a thrilling novel, even without the added pleasure of a tense romance. Every level of that tension is kept at a high level, whether it is espionage, the race or sensuality, from beginning to end. ****
