Title: WHEN THE SNOW FLIES Author: Laurie Alice Eakes Publisher: Avalon Books August 2010 ISBN: 978-0-8024-7776-6 Genre: Historical romance Doctor Audrey Sinclair Vanderleyden and her husband had planned to buy a retiring physician’s medical practice and practice medicine together. But her husband’s tragic death ended that dream. Nevertheless, Audrey is determined to practice medicine on her own. Except—the retiring doctor refuses to step down for a woman. And, he refuses to refund her money. Audrey has nowhere else to go, except home to her parents or in-laws, both of whom expect her to give up medicine. And even more so when they get the news that she’s expecting. Nathan Maxell is also a doctor, but a gunshot blinded him. Now he lives a life of solitude, with only servants and his sister as company. He cut his hand badly and was in town getting it stitched up with Audrey arrives, and Nathan is with the townfolk in wanting to get rid of her. But another accident makes him rely on Audrey’s care—and soon, he doesn’t want her to leave. But what woman would ever be desperate enough to marry a blind man? WHEN THE SNOW FLIES is a book that I wanted to read since I saw the absolutely beautiful cover that Avalon designed for it. And the story didn’t disappoint. Nathan is a very sweet hero, if a bit opinionated, but Audrey is every inch a match for him, just as opinionated in her own right, and a very strong-willed woman. Ms. Eakes did a stellar job on her characterization in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading WHEN THE SNOW FLIES and look forward to reading many more books by this award winning author. $23.95 hardcover. 202 pages.
I deduced a star due to its lack of originality. This was the first book (and the first written by J.D. Robb) I've ever read by J.D. Robb, even though Nora Roberts (another pen name of hers, for those who didn't know) was one of my favorite author. I would describe this book as a typical mystery book and what I enjoyed about it was that the detective/hero (Eve) was a female. (naturally) I honestly don't know if I would read all of her books, even though I want to check out the next book - Glory in Death - just to see whether or not Eve was still with the guy and whether they got into a relationship or not. Does any one of you know the answer? Ah, heck - it'd probably either intrigue me to go and get the book, or to FK it if the whole JD Robb books were not worthy of my time to read.. Hm. If I was hearing, I'd love to be in the law enforcement field (i know i know deafies CAN but no thanks - i dont wanna a damn desk job) - and I've learned some stuff regarding being a police or a detective through this book. For instance, if any officers discharged a weapon that resulted in a termination of life, they were to undergo a psychiatric and emotional clearance before resuming duty. Then again - I don't think that happen every day, unless I was wrong. One thing that did concern me was that "She would beat thm, as she's beaten them before." - page 2. ACK. I'm sure that happened(s) in real world, and that is definitely a big ACK! Another thing that concerned me was "She wanted to see the dead's family and friends gathered together, to observe, to analyze, and to judge." - page 35. What happened to innocent until proven guilt? I KNOW this book's a fiction, but I KNOW dirty stuff happens in our government and our law enforcement people. It proved that some do judge, period, even though he/she was taught or trained not to. My point is that I do NOT want to be at the mercy of them for I know, with my rotten luck, I'd get screwed royally. I simply love these sentences from page 150. I feel it's SO true and could have not be written any better; "Odd, isn't it, how many different opinions and perceptions you find on one woman. Ask this one, and you'll hear Sharon was loyal, generous. Ask another and she was vindictive, calculating. Still another saw her as a party addict who could never find enough excitement, while the next tells you she enjoyed quiet evenings on her own." I feel this apply to nearly, if not, everyone. This book was set in 2020's. There's this sentence I felt that rang true and shows how dangerous genetic engineering can be. "Whatever we've done in genetic engineering, in vitro, with social programs, we still can't control basic human failings: violence, lust, envy." page 227.
