Julie Garwood's newest contemporary "Fire and Ice" is a fast-moving, exhilarating read with an unlikely lead couple and a twisting mystery. The heroine was introduced in "Murder List", but now Sophie gets her own story, and her own FBI hero!

Sophie has left her big journalist job to work at a smaller paper outside Chicago. At least this editor agrees not to pump Sophie for information about her father! But when her father is implicated (again) in a possible crime, Sophie prepares herself for another round of questioning from various government agencies, not to mention threats from his enemies. Then one of Sophie's local intereste interviewee's turns up Alaska...eaten by a polar bear! Surely a trip to the frozen north will give Sophie a break, and it couldn't hurt for her to have a little distance from totally unsuitable Jack MacAlister.

Jack would have to be dead from the neck down not to notice how attractive Sophie is. But Bobby Rose's daughter? How inappropriate is that? Too bad that it seems Jack's libido isn't listening. And when Sophie is injured, Jack quickly realizes that she could use a little muscle on her trip to the frozen wastes of Alaska. And good thing Jack's handy with a gun when it appears Sophie's trip didn't deter someone who wants her dead!

Several different stories come together and require the reader to track carefully if they want to figure out who's trying to kill Sophie, and why. The banter and sizzling attraction between Sophie and Jack add just the right amount of humor and heat to Garwood's latest romantic suspense. Another hit for me and one I couldn't put down till the end.

I picked this book up because it sounded good and it was very good! Because I love series books I've got to go back and get the first one. I love stories that take you places with intrigue. This book has that as well as a good love story. The characters keep you interested. Overall the book was hard to put down.

I LOVE Julie Garwood, honest to gosh I do! However, I am peeved with her newest works. I liked Heartbreaker, Mercy, Murder List but what happened with slowburn, the dance one or this thing? I loved her historicals. Ransom is awesome and the others historicals simply wonderful. I hope she plans on going back to write more historicals.

I agree with the five star reviews! Love Julie Garwood! Not much I can say to top the others so I will recommend another book that I absolutely fell in love with....EXPLOSION IN PARIS, by LINDA MASEMORE PIRRUNG...Should be on every woman's book club list!! Check out the reviews! They hooked ME!

I love Julie Garwood books. She is one of my favorite authors. I love her historical books so much better than her contemporary novels though. This story was Ok but a little disappointing. I think with the historical novels she uses more humor and the romance is not as rushed. With modern day where everyone has sex right away, I think you lose the fun of the characters really getting to play off each other. The plot was different but just not as great as some of her other work. I wish she would come out with a historical romance novel soon!

Julie Garwood is one of my favorite authors. Her books are intense and fun, although this book would be one of the lessers from her writings. Fire and Ice is still better than most romance books I have read, but it did seem to lack a certain characteristic of emotion and depth. Overall, I would recommend any of her books - Especially her historical collection. They're heart-warming.

Sophie, one of Regan's BFF's from Murder list, is quite a character. The daughter of a netorious theif who always seems to be one step ahead of authorities and a public hero, Think modern day Robinhood. Sophie is strong and confident because she has had to be. With Jack who is equally strong minded and stubborn, this story is filled with their clashes of personality as well as the heat of their unwanted attraction. I highly recommend this story. Note: This story stands on its own but is greatly enhanced when read after Murder List.

I love this author....i have read almost all of her books andhave only read one that i did not care for. I highly recomend that you read all three books in the series This book follows Murder List, its not necessary to read that book first but it is nice to haeto background on all of the characters (there is one inconsistency between the two stories that was annoying, in Murder List they talj a lot about how Regan's Mom is dead, but in this book they mention she is alive and in her honeymoon). If you want the last friends story you can read fast track after this book.

I had a lot of fun with Fire and Ice. I happened to get the audiobook to listen to this novel. You can always count on that they are really well done! Fire and Ice introduces us to FBI agent Jack MacAlister and reintroduces us to Sophie Rose, Alex Buchanan, Reagan Buchanan, Bobby Rose, and others. Synopsis: Sophie is busy at her desk writing an article for the Chicago Chronicle. She wonders what the next assignment might be. Mr. Bitterman her boss soon let’s her know that she needs to interview a man who called the newspaper for an interview. Sophie contacts and meets with William Harrington who called the paper. When they met he talks for three hours on his favorite topic himself and his upcoming races and lets slip about the Alpha Project. Sophie barely pays attention until he shows up dead a couple of days later. Well naturally she’s curious! There is one major problem someone has made a threat on her life. Will she accept help from Jack and her friends? Will she be able to find out what happened to William Harrington? My Thoughts: Remember I said fun right! What makes Julie Garwood’s characters so interesting is how unique she makes them. We met Sophie in another of Julie’s novel The Murder List. I am glad that we got to know her a little better in her own novel. What would you do if you had a father who is wanted by the authorities on a regular basis? You are constantly called in by the cops for questioning. You are used to having your life threatened. How does the author make the pairing of Jack and Sophie so relatable? The other concepts of the story are well done. The plot is predictable but an entertaining ride. I am always very entertained by Julie’s novels. Humor makes it all that much more entertaining!

It definitely took me a while to get into this story.  The journal entries are at complete counterpoint to the rest of the story at the beginning.  It took me a while to be able to relate one to the other.  By the end, it does make much more sense.  By about half way through this novel I was hooked.  I really got into the story, puzzling it out and needing to know what would happen next, how it would end.  The biology and scientific possibilities in this novel were interesting.  Trying to figure them out kept me coming back for more.  Of course, once I got into the story, I was hooked. The characters in this novel were quite interesting.  Although they were close, and were a pseudo-extended family they were very very different individuals. It added a sense of fullness to the story.  I did find the female lead to have a bit of a personality overload.  She’d go from one to the next and then back again at the flip of a switch.   This was an intriguing read, and one that I was thoroughly wrapped up in by the ending.  I have a feeling I would have enjoyed it much more had I been reading it rather than listening to the audio book.

I have read everything Julie has written over the years and have loved all of them. This is the only one I have had difficulty reading. It was ok, but not my favorite. The plot seemed a bit looser, and did not really come together for me.

Good plot, great storry telling but there wasn't any romance. Just as the characters seem to get know each other more the friendmies ; they declare love for each other and that's that. I like romance with a good plot but this wasn't it.
