REVIEW

"On Thin Ice reads like an adventure romance movie!"

Who knew an Alaskan winter could be turned into such a wonderful playground for love and intrigue? Cherry Adair's ON THIN ICE is a novel with excellent suspense-filled moment-to-moment excitement and heart stopping romance. Ms. Adair's strong characters and solid plot make the book fly by while you try to discover what will happen next in this whirlwind adventure on the Iditarod Trail.

Dr. Lily Munroe has been a widow for six months after living in a loveless marriage for too many years. Thinking she was saving herself for the right man she waited for her wedding night to give her virginity. Unfortunately, that was enough for her so-called husband as the bed had barely cooled down and he was on to greener pastures. But Lilly has too much honor to let go when she learns he is dying of cancer. So she stays and continues her Veterinarian practices while her husband whiles away their money in risky gambling schemes that involve the ranch.

Derek Wright has loved Lily since the day he met her. There attraction was so intense it stayed with Derek over the years regardless of how it scared Lily away from him and into the arms of his friend Sean. But Derek knows Sean's true colors and has suspected his treachery both as a husband and a gambler. So Derek has kept a respectful eye on Lily through this marriage, waiting for the day he can finally claim what should have been so long ago. And this time he would get it right.

But life is about to change for the very masterful and sexy Derek Wright who is on a mission. Lily is single, it's been six months, and the time has come for him to make his move. Lily, however, is determined to keep Derek at arms length and what better way to do this, then to leave Montana for the Alaska Iditarod sled dog race. A race both she and Derek have competed in before and one he intends to compete in again if it means being closer to Lily.

Unfortunately the harsh winter environment and the race itself is the easy part. The complications start to hit when someone out there wants Lily dead. She knows too much about her dead husband's illegal business and they want her eliminated. Lucky for Lily, Derek is also a T-FLAC agent and has the skills and training to keep her safe. But can he maintain her safety while chasing her down in the race? Will this stubborn woman ever surrender to their passion? And is Alaska's snow going to be able to withstand these two very hot people in town?

Ms. Adair has written an amazing book that truly gives the reader a taste of adventure and a feel for Alaska through these very multi-dimensional characters. And since I also live in Alaska I was dying to find out how romantic can you be when you are in sub-zero temperatures? Apparently, temperature is not an issue when your characters are this hot! I admire her creativity and have taken notes J! I highly recommend this Book and frankly I am going to seek out her other books as this is my first taste of Cherry Adair, but it won't be my last!

SUMMARY

Lily Munroe thought she had married an honest, dependable man, but she was painfully mistaken. It didn’t take long for her once-loving husband to become a secretive stranger– mixing with shady people and even shadier dealings. Although Lily nursed him through a sudden terminal illness, her marriage was over long before he passed away. During that difficult time, only her passion for the exhilarating Iditarod race across Alaska gave her something to look forward to–and she channeled her emotions into training dogs for the grueling event. Now single again, she’s more determined than ever to win the race, awaken her sense of self, and leave her past behind.

In the competition, the person to beat is two-time winner Derek Wright, a man Lily dubs Mr. Wrong. Extremely sexy and devilishly charming, Derek is the consummate playboy. Or is he? Although Lily can’t deny her intense attraction, she believes he is dangerous to her scarred heart. Little does she know that Derek is an elite antiterrorism agent–or how desperately she’ll need to depend on his skills to keep her alive once the race is under way.
