Man of Ice

Diana Palmer always writes a good story. This one seems a little slow or off. Not her normal book.The characters were weak and a little flat. The reader was okay --- his female voice was fake.

I wouldn't say it was great...

The story wasn't very captivating but I would say it would be better with a different narrator. I just couldn't deal with his lack of inflection ... I wouldn't recommend.

Boring

a total waste of money even at the low price I bought it at. I couldn't finish it no matter how hard I tried. Sad to say I bought 2 books at the same time! Hopefully the 2nd will be better.

Disappointing

It must take a lot of time and concentration to write a book, that is why I am very sorry to give the review. The storyline was was so boring I skipped a few paragraphs.. The narration in no way helped me get thru this one.

Not her best!

Would you try another book from Diana Palmer and/or Jeff Crawford?

Yes, I enjoyed his expressive reading which vividly showed how awful Dawson was.

What was most disappointing about Diana Palmer’s story?

The going back and forth between the two of with the love and hate. Also I know the hero in romances should be forceful but he raped her twice and then to add insult to injury verbally assaulted her afterwards. That was distasteful. I've read books by Diana Palmer for many years especially her long, tall Texans series and this by far the worst.

What does Jeff Crawford bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The nuances of each character.

What character would you cut from Man of Ice?

The widow Holton

Disappointing. Had great reviews on Amazon but...

Would you consider the audio edition of Man of Ice to be better than the print version?

Havent read it so couldn't say...

What was most disappointing about Diana Palmer’s story?

The lead male character was such an a**hole. Mean, hateful, hurtful and in my opinion un-redeeming. The heroine was weak and a huge pushover. If any man treated my friend like this I would tell her to leave his crazy self and never speak to him again. The heroine had no self respect at all.

Which character – as performed by Jeff Crawford – was your favorite?

Jeff Crawford did a great job and was probably the only good thing about this book.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes! I wanted to strangle both of them! I wanted to laugh with absurdness of this book and cry with frustration and disbelieving.

Any additional comments?

This author usually does so much better and before I purchased this book I looked at the reviews and they were all 4+ stars and great reviews. Big disappointment.

Far from Diana Palmer's best.

I enjoy Diana Palmer's books and was excited to come across this one. Unfortunately it was far from one of her best. I found the characters shallow and predictable and the story theme repetitive. I managed to stay with it to the end but it took effort.
