Review: Calling Cassie (Alaska Blizzard) by: Kat Mizera
Calling Cassie (Alaska Blizzard) - Kat Mizera

 

 

 

 
Calling Cassie by Kat Mizera

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Mizera is known for writing gripping stories that live in the heart and stay on your mind. Calling Cassie takes that to a whole other level. Cassidy Reynolds and Logan Pelletier set the pages ablaze with the heat they exude. Despite the sensual fireworks they never neglect making the heart feel included. Cassie and Logan come with a ton of baggage. It makes for a bumpy road, but is well worth the heartache.

Big setting, big story, Survive – Love and Murder in Alaska is classic Wilkins

Not only is bush pilot Tom Bodeen’s cargo secret, but he’s also landing it in the remote Alaskan wilderness. Yet landing the plane turns out to be the least of his worries when he, his customer Levi and two employees, are confronted by armed hijackers and left for dead. Bodeen is saved from a shot to the head by his aviator’s helmet. 

 

When he gains consciousness, he realizes he's alone,  is badly injured, has no means to call for rescue and ​​his only hope of survival is to try to find Levi’s cabin, located somewhere miles from the landing site. This leads to a lengthy, tortuous journey across treacherous frozen terrain to get there against the odds. 

 

Yet getting there is only half the story. When Levi’s wife Elinor and daughter Marianne discover Bodeen, barely alive, and nurse him back to health, a rivalry develops for his affections between the seventeen-year-old Marianne whose hormones are raging out of control and her mother still in her sexual prime though trapped for years in a loveless marriage. Meanwhile, if Levi’s killers learn he’s still alive, they’ll be coming to finish the job of killing him. 

 

The stage is set as two jealous women with needs compete for an attractive injured man miles from civilization where societal norms, even law and order, amount to survival of the fittest.  

 

One woman will lose, leaving the other scorned. Hell, hath no fury… 

 

Survive – Love and Murder in Alaska is the perfect setting for author Clark Wilkins to present his knowledge of survival in extreme winter environments. Realistic plotting, detailed action and complicated relationships culminate in a surprising end that makes for an interesting and informative novel.

Reading progress update: I've read 11%.
No Fixed Line - Dana Stabenow,Marguerite Gavin

It brings me comfort to be back in Kate Shugak land. That's odd really as Dana Stabenow doesn't write cosy mysteries. Her books have very bad people in them. She confronts hate, corruption, misogyny, racism, greed and a hunger for violence. She looks at Alaska and sees both its beauty and its lethal indifference. She doesn't whitewash politics or history and she understands that even the people who think of themselves as the good guys sometimes betray themselves and the things they believe in.

 

So why does reading a Kate Shugak story bring me comfort?

 

Because, at the heart of almost all of the stories, there is a refusal to abandon hope, to find the courage to persist and a determination not to look away. There's also friendship, community, love, independence and honesty. It's a home I'd like to have. A home I'd like to be able to live up to even though I know I'd probably fail.

 

So, after a prologue and two chapters where am I?

 

Firstly, it looks like Dana Stabenow is going to dig in to the human consequences of one of the worst evils Trump has created, one that I think the rest of the world looks at and wonders why the rest of America allows it: the separation of children from their parents at the border. Keeping children in cages, sleeping on concrete floors.  Destroying family by dispersing children across America without documenting where they went or who their parents were. All of it overseen by ICE, troops own SS.

 

Of course, that's my, entirely political neutral and totally objective, summary, not Stabelnow's. She's a more 'show don't tell' writer, so her proluge deal with two children, a brother and a sister, separated from their mother, kept in cages and then sold on to human traffickers.  Then she gives me a chapter showing the fast, instinctive response of two young people who face a fierce ice storm to rescue any survivors of a  plane crash, followed by a chapter with Kate at home, cooking and discussing the merits of college and the problems with the State defunding education. 

 

So, I know I'm home. I know things are going to get fraught. And I know I'm going to have to exercise control not to snarf the whole book down in a day, like a Labrador with fresh meat.

Contemporary Romance
Something Wild In Anchorage (Alaska Adve... Something Wild In Anchorage (Alaska Adventure Romance Book 5) - Renee Hart

Something Wild In Anchorage is an entertaining contemporary romance by Renee Hart.  Ms. Hart has provided readers with a book that is a fairly quick read, perfect for those with limited reading time.  Lissa is new to Alaska and the adjustment is a bit of a struggle.  Ryan meets Lissa when he almost runs over her.  Lissa and Ryan's story is packed with drama and lots of humor.  I enjoyed this book.

 

I voluntarily read a complimentary copy of this book that I received from Instafreebie. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
