Breaking the Ice | [Kim Baldwin]

Breaking the Ice

Nothing is easy about life above the Artic Circle. Except, perhaps, falling in love. Bryson Faulkner embraces the challenges that come with making a home in one of the most beautiful but unforgiving places on earth: the isolation of the endless wilderness, the unpredictable climate, and the most perilous dangers of all----those that await her when she takes to the skies as one of Alaska’s most daring bush pilots.

Publisher's Summary

Nothing is easy about life above the Artic Circle. Except, perhaps, falling in love. Bryson Faulkner embraces the challenges that come with making a home in one of the most beautiful but unforgiving places on earth: the isolation of the endless wilderness, the unpredictable climate, and the most perilous dangers of all - those that await her when she takes to the skies as one of Alaska’s most daring bush pilots. The only thing missing is a special woman to share it all with, but she’s resigned herself to the fact that few people can thrive in such an extreme environment. Everything Karla Edwards thought she knew gets called into question when a series of events turns her comfortable and well-ordered life on its ear. Her partner leaves her, her mother dies, and Karla learns she has a sister in Alaska she never knew. She takes a leave of absence from her job as an ER nurse in Atlanta and heads to the far north seeking answers and adventure. She finds all that and more when she crosses paths with a sexy bush pilot who opens her eyes to new possibilities. But can she open her heart as well and learn to trust again?

    "melting the heart"

    I enjoyed this living in Australia I've never experienced or seen snow but after reading this book I would be quite happy to move to Alaska , I think I fell in love with the place as much as the couple fell in love with each other ,a beautiful romantic story set in a beautiful romantic place ,it would be nice to have more stories like this to choose from.

    What did you love best about Breaking the Ice?

    My partner and I listened to this together and by the end we were day dreaming of becoming a rescue team, as I am a nurse and she was in the military, lol! It is a beautiful story...

    "Good Action"
    What did you like best about Breaking the Ice? What did you like least?

    I liked the descriptions of Alaska???s wilderness. The author did a good job of painting a picture of the scenery. However I felt the love story was a bit contrite. But when you don???t have a lot of lesbian novels to choose from it was okay.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Breaking the Ice?

    When they are on the dog sled and looking at the Northen Lights. The authors description made me really want to experience that for myself!


    What about Kim Baldwin???s performance did you like?

    She did a good job of giving each character their own voice and personality.
    She is a good reader.


    Was Breaking the Ice worth the listening time?

    Yes

    Story
    "Awesome. Makes me want to move to Alaska."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Breaking the Ice to be better than the print version?

    I listened to the book while commuting. I otherwise would not have been able to read due to being employed full-time as well as a full-time student in graduate school. The audio version gave me access to the book that I would not have had for a long time.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Breaking the Ice?

    The midnight rescue.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scenes with all the towns folk.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Adventure and romance set in a rugged, unforgiving environment.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book. Will look for more by this author.

    "First Kim Baldwin Audio Book I've Listened To"
    Where does Breaking the Ice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was a surprise as it was a slow burner and I usually don't get hooked on them but it kept me engrossed


    What did you like best about this story?

    The descriptions of the landscape and quality of life in Alaska made me feel as if I can relate to it, even though I've never been there


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did but it also breaks down well to listen to in shorter bursts as well

    "One of the earlier stories."

    This is still a good story from one of my favourite authors, although personally I think her best works are the elite operative group series.
