Read full description of the books:
In short: Anidyr Bycall [tall, dark, and gorgeous:], a graduate student studying glaciers, flees academic ruin in Fairbanks, Alaska, to tend bar in Key West. The love she left behind, Eve Cambra, [short, blond, and you guessed it...:] can never forgive her, she thinks. Three years later, she goes back to get her stuff from Eve's garage and say the goodbye she hadn't before. So she thinks...
Egad! This is uber Xena!
In the category of a little knowledge is a dangerous thing, I realize I'm no expert on Alaska, but I had a few issues with this book. I'll give it five stars for the heartwarming story of love conquering all. Take away a star for including Eve's point of view. As soon as she opens her mind to us, all the tension is lost. We know how this story will play out, the miscommunication becomes annoying, and the character of Lisa clearly a red herring. (I do not get the need, so common in lesfic, to whipsaw readers back and forth between POVs.) Then take away another star for the lame plot. Like Lisa, I guessed the bad guy in about thirty minutes. And Kallmaker's literary license should be suspended for moving Mount McKinley north of Fairbanks. WTF? And the northern lights are not visible in summer in Fairbanks, where it gets no darker than dusk. A flip through Frommer's would have told her that. If these hadn't been major elements to the story, I could have dismissed them.
I wish she had delved deeper into the science. Did it not strike her as ironic to set a story in the shadow of the Alaska Pipeline, which is never mentioned, while discussing global warming research? I'll leave it with 3 stars because I do like Kallmaker and I give her props for at least attempting a potentially interesting setting, even if it would have fit better someplace like Talkeetna. At one point, I did actually pause to reflect on how neat it was to be reading about women's love for each other.
