Sophie Rose is a determined woman. She
has broken all financial ties with her infamous father and
has struck out on her own as a newspaper reporter. She has
the complete support of her two best friends and her new
boss. Now if the FBI would just stop trying to bug her and
realize that she is not the direct pipeline to her infamous
father the notorious big-time modern day Robin Hood. The
new small local newspaper she works for isnít as fast paced
as the big dailies but she works for an amazing, if addicted
to root beer, boss who trusts her and looks out for her.
Too bad her best friend went and married an FBI agent, but
he has become family.
Sophie is given an assignment to cover
a quirky local personality who runs 5Kís and thinks he is
front page worthy. She spends one amazingly boring evening
with him but a story is a story and meets him to get photos
and follow his race the next day. Only he disappears
between the time she talks with him until he shows hundreds
of miles away in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska the victim of a polar
bear attack. They find Sophieís card on the body and call
her. Now she is intrigued as to how he just up and
disappeared and just might head north. But before she heads
out there is an attack on her life and everyone thinks it is
coordination with the recent news of her father, again.
Now suddenly Sophie is traveling with a
bodyguard, one Jack MacAlister, the super hot but very
opinionated partner of her best friendís husband. Their
attraction is mutual but both try to deny that it exists.
Suddenly it looks like Sophieís trouble has followed her to
the frozen north. Will they make it out alive and more
importantly will they stop fighting their passion, and let
nature take its course?
From Chicago to Alaska you will wonder
what is going to happen to Sophie next. I was captured from
the first page of Fire and Ice until the
last. I love how Ms. Garwood made her a spunky; take no
crap, woman who is dealing with life the best way she knows
how. I was slightly confused about the journal which
started Fire and Ice but before too long was
able to see how things would interact. I laughed out loud
at the office full of root beer, the painful description of
having to listen to Williamís blister talks as well as when
Jack first meets Sophie. I hope that we see Sophie and Jack
in a future book and I think Ms. Garwood definitely has a
winner in Fire and Ice. You will thoroughly
enjoy your time spent reading Fire and Ice.
