Ice Lady (Harlequin Romance Subscription, #93) Reviews
Of all the Emma Goldrick books, I believe this is the one with the most potential for emotional angst. I said potential because although the storyline revolves around two exes exchanging recriminations and dissecting their failures (and these are always angsty subjects), the story has tacked on a survival plot. Most of the time, this mix of romance and adventure is effective. As the blizzard rages outside their camp, the H/h are forced to weather their own unresolved, turbulent feelings inside closed quarters. Since there’s no exit for them, they have all the time for a satisfying post mortem. I like it when the hero discovers that she’s no longer a doormat and begins to realize how he had taken her happiness and security for granted. But sometimes, too, the successive natural disasters become a distraction from the love story. For instance, just as the heroine is about to relent to the hero, they get knocked about by a strong wind. Or when they’re about to break emotional impasse, they get attacked by a bear. Each time, the drama has to be rekindled at a later time. So frustrating….Why this book rated only a four star? because there are gaps in the story that go against good reasoning. First, if the heroine felt that she was being stalked or physically threatened by the hero, why didn't she seek assistance from the police instead of just running away every time? Secondly, if she was using her married name all that time, the hero should have been able to track her down a lot sooner considering that he had retained detectives, too. Thirdly, if she suspected the mother-in-law’s animosity towards her, common sense and self-preservation should have made her communicate directly with her husband instead of relying on the mother-in-law. This book is definitely more emotional than the other Goldrick books and readers will feel dragged through the wringer without the usual balance of zippy humor.
