Twice in a Blue Moon, by Cate Masters

Melanie Michaels has lost the love of her life, Pete. Buck Wright has lost the love of his life, Poppy. Both are lost in the state of heartbrokenness. Melanie has run away from her pain by becoming the host of a reality TV show that shows her being a dare devil in every out of the way place in the world. Buck has run away from his pain by moving to Sweden to the frozen tundra to be a sled dog guide and live where there are few people.

What happens next is that the Reality TV show decides to come to Sweden, take a sled dog team and visit the Ice Castle Hotel that is built each year out of only Ice. Melanie’s team hires Artic Adventures to guide their trip, that means that Buck Wright becomes their trip guide.

What happens with a cold withdrawn Diva meets the cold withdrawn Mountain Man? Well, that’s the gist of the story. The sparks will fly or maybe they won’t. Buck will learn that Melanie is not the cold hearted Diva he thinks she is. She will learn that the Mountain Man is a Mountain Man, but with a soft inner core that just needs to thaw out a bit.

If I didn’t know any better I would think this is Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice with the twist being that Elizabeth is the Prideful one and Darcy is the down to earth outdoorsy one.

Either way the story is a great read. It is predictable, but who cares, it is fun, it is romantic, it is moving. I’m just sorry that it was so short, I would have loved to have been lost in it for another couple of days.

I believe you will enjoy it.
