Reviews - What do customers think about Colder Than Ice?
poorly realized version of a potentially interesting story Jun 19, 2007
i bought this book based on the high ratings here on this site and was really disappointed...the plot has holes so big you could drive a dog-team through them...the main characters are not particularly likeable, much less believable. Do yourself a favour and give it a miss.
A thoroughly enjoyable read Oct 13, 2006
Here is my idea of a well written engaging book, populated by believable characters struggling through realistic situations, making decisions and choices that reflect those we ourselves might choose or make in circumstances that conspire and challenge us.
I thoroughly enjoyed this absorbing, page-turning action-adventure, and the characters who took me on a journey of discovery into the depths of Antarctica, where personalities clashed and emotions smoldered just beneath the surface.
Macphersons' well-written prose evokes a sense of place immediately, while her ability to bring us right into the characters lives and personalities, from the get go, has you turning the pages to find out what's going to happen next.
Add this one to your 'must read' list.
Great adventure. Jun 5, 2006
Don't start this story on a work night. This is a great adventure story worth the time to read, Be careful because you won't want to do anything else until you have finished the whole book!
Great character development and pace Jun 5, 2006
Unlike many lesbian-themed books, Helen doesn't rush the story. She takes time to develop the characters and get the reader engaged in their lives and perspectives. She moves the romance along at a slow, realistic pace while keeping the reader looking forward to the next development.
Clear Your Calendar and Get Comfortable Nov 24, 2005
This book is so good that once you start reading, you won't want to stop. Clear your calendar, grab a hot toddy, and curl up in your favorite spot... you're going to be mesmorized until the last page. My first Macpherson read, I'm now anxiously awaiting the arrival of 'And Those Who Trespass Against Us.'
Psychologist Dr. Michela DeGrasse and archaeologist Dr. Allison Shaunessy are two driven, professional women who are about to take the journey of their lives. Alli wrote her doctoral dissertation on the as-yet unsubstantiated arctic explorer Eric Finlayson. When glaciologist Sarah and her team discover a wooden structure hidden under the ice in Antarctica, one possibility is it's finally proof of the Finlayson expedition. Alli is surprised to get 40% of the cost of a new expedition from the museum she represents. Michela, researching team dynamics under harsh conditions for the Mars program, secures an additional 20% from her own organization. The psychologist gets the remaining funds from the Finlayson family themselves -- under two conditions. The first condition is that Michela head up the expedition herself. The second is that they bring the body of the explorer home for proper burial.
Strangers before the adventure, Alli concedes leadership to Michela so the expedition will be fully financed. The women learn to overcome their differences over the preparations, training, and actual journey itself. Michela has broken up with her cheating partner and has an uncharacteristic one-night-stand. Seemingly-straight Alli is having problems with her long-time boyfriend, and is struggling with newfound feelings for Michela. The other six explorers on their team range from supportive to destructive, making for a story with depth and dimensionality.
Not only do the women discover great things about the original Finlayson expedition, they also discover themselves. Finally, after many months of struggling, their Finlayson benefactor plays matchmaker in the most interesting of ways.
