Overview

For LA publicist Sydney Green, walruses are the key to saving her job and her love life. That’s why she’s agreed to spend a month at a walrus preserve in remote Alaska producing a documentary — a cause célèbre piece featuring Hollywood heartthrob Blake McKinley, Sydney’s stalwart client and sometimes boyfriend. But this accomplished city girl finds herself woefully ill-equipped for life in her new rugged surroundings.

Despite no electricity or indoor plumbing, Sydney perseveres, even if the group’s chief scientist, Ethan Eckert, is one of the most difficult people she’s ever encountered — and she works in Hollywood! Things go from bad to worse when she discovers that spotty satellite and Internet service makes extinguishing fires back at the office nearly impossible, but when Blake arrives arm in arm with both her work nemesis and a sexy starlet, Sydney is soon forced to choose between doing what’s easy and doing what’s right.

Editorial Reviews

Coffee Time Romance (Laurie)
I found this novel utterly riveting as I tagged along with Sydney on her adventures. I was there to share her grief and heartbreak over the desperate plight of the small animal adrift alone in the deep waters of the Arctic. I commiserated with her as she was blasted by the fickle nature of love and desire. But mostly I laughed as she courageously learned about herself and about the walruses. . . . an exceptional read.
Books & Chat (Dianne)
"How I Learned to Love the Walrus" is considered a light chick-lit. I consider it anything but. It is a funny, sometimes tear inducing, warm, informative novel. It is comedic fiction, plain and simple. Don't let the cover put you off. This is not written solely for the 20 year old crowd. This book will appeal to women (and men) of all ages.
The Romance Reviews (Arkali)
This is a witty tale with some laugh-out-loud moments. Full of character (and characters), it was an engaging read with a lot going for it. . . . It's an amusing story that doesn't take itself too seriously but at the same time gives you some food for thought.
Dear Author (Jayne)
"The 'roughing it' scenes are a hoot. . . . I have changed my mind about ever going on one of these eco vacations. I'll just send a check, thank you!"

Beth Orsoff

Beth Orsoff is the author of Romantically Challenged, Disengaged, Girl in the Wild, Honeymoon for One, and Vlad All Over. She was born in New York City and has never lived more than an hour’s drive from the ocean — even spending her formative years toiling as a lifeguard where she was “paid to work on her tan.” When her parents forced her to get a “real job,” she went to law school and forged a career as an entertainment attorney in Los Angeles. Currently, when she’s not writing humorous or suspenseful women’s fiction, Orsoff can be found at her desk drafting Hollywood contracts. Sadly, she no longer sports a tan.
