    Debbie Macomber has a knack for writing quirky Alaskan men. I always love books that take me to different corners of the world and it was fun to visit Fairbanks this time around. I would say this is more of a drama-filled angsty read rather than a five-candy cane, harness the reindeer holiday type one, but it was still a good angsty romance. Grady was definitely a different drink of water, and had some rough patches to work out for most of the book as he and Cathy rubbed each other the wrong way Debbie Macomber has a knack for writing quirky Alaskan men.

Grady was definitely a different drink of water, and had some rough patches to work out for most of the book as he and Cathy rubbed each other the wrong way at first in this enemies-to-lovers romance. I liked teacher Cathy and her dedication to her students (whew, you can really tell this is from the 80’s with some of the terminology… but it’s still a cute read!) and the Alaskan setting was great for a holiday book. The scenes in Denali National Park were super, and I loved how eventually these two started to warm up to one another… and then did their two steps forward, one step back dance. Whew, wasn’t sure these two were going to make it! But of course, this is romance, and this ended up being a heartwarming tale in the end. Please excuse typos/name misspellings. Entered on screen reader.

    What is up with her older books having the main male character be such an ass and being emotionally abusive and the main female character cowering down and taking it without her speaking her mind? I was really enjoying this read up until the part of then marrying. That's when it just kept me angry the way Grady was treating Cathy all because of his insecurities and he had no communication at all up until the last few pages of the book.

    I really enjoyed this story. Special Ed teacher, Cathy, moves to the remotest part of the USA she could find – Alaska – after watching the man she loved walk down the aisle with her sister. However, her new best friend seem to think she needs a man at her side and talks Cathy into answering a lonely hearts ad in the local paper. Through this she gets a brand-new challenge, namely Grady Jones, a pilot and single dad who is so busy with his business he has little time spare for his daughter. He co I really enjoyed this story.

You know what you are going to get with Debbie Macomber – misunderstandings, so much frustration you want to bang the MC heads together – before the inevitable happy ever after. Loved it

    I don’t think I’ll read this author again. This is the story of a woman involved with 2 sick, verbally and psychologically abusive men. Cathy is an educated, professional woman who allows herself to be treated like a doormat. When her husband explains his behavior she says, “oh, ok”. This is 2020! I am appalled that we are allowing such trash!! The inappropriate displays of affection in front of the child and the lack of boundaries ruins the good that was done by the dyslexia story line.

    Deception When I read the letter from the author I really wanted to like the book. Once I actually read it, I wasn't pleased and almost didn't finish it. Cathy was so zombie like so many times and Grady turned into a bitter a-hole. I couldn't identify with any of them and both pissed me off so many times. Don't think I'll read anything from this author again. Deception When I read the letter from the author I really wanted to like the book.

    Not her best I tried to like this but just wasn't able to. No sympathy for the female lead, she seemed very childish and immature. By the middle of the book I was hoping a grizzly bear would take care of her. This book was rubbish. Not her best I tried to like this but just wasn't able to.

    Cathy and her boyfriend, Steve, have an argument and she is tired of always being the one to give in and apologize. She decides to teach him a lesson and break up with him, expecting him to come crawling back. Instead, he starts dating her younger sister, MaryAnne and only three months later they are married, with Cathy as maid of honour. Cathy accepts a job offer in Alaska to get as far away from Steve as possible. There she meets the arrogant father of a very timid 6 year old student, whom she Cathy and her boyfriend, Steve, have an argument and she is tired of always being the one to give in and apologize. She decides to teach him a lesson and break up with him, expecting him to come crawling back. Instead, he starts dating her younger sister, MaryAnne and only three months later they are married, with Cathy as maid of honour. Cathy accepts a job offer in Alaska to get as far away from Steve as possible. There she meets the arrogant father of a very timid 6 year old student, whom she suspects is dyslexic. They see each other a few times and she is strongly attracted to Grady, even though she is still madly in love with her ex. Right after her sister phones to announce that she is pregnant, she receives a letter from Steve saying that he made a mistake and he only starting seeing MaryAnne to teach her a lesson but things went too far. When Grady coldly asks Cathy to marry him and give his young daughter a mother, she thinks, "Why not?" For a while they are happy but then Grady becomes inexplicably moody and completely withdraws from Cathy. For an entire month he works 16 hour days and spends as little time at home as possible. Cathy realizes she is deeply in love with him. When little Angela forgets her overnight bag when she goes to sleep with a friend, Cathy packs her bag to take to her and Grady, seeing her ready to go out the door with a suitcase jumps to the obvious conclusion. He begs her to stay and they both admit their love for each other. This is the first book I have read by Debbie Macomber, and even thought I enjoyed the Alaskan background, I did not like the moodiness and arrogance of Grady. On their wedding day he tells her that she will be his for life and she WILL be a wife to him. He then orders her to get undressed. Although he is a total jerk to her, she slowly becomes more drawn to him. He is devastatingly handsome. I think that what could have been a very sweet story was spoiled by Grady's overly macho attitude. Yes, he thought Cathy was still in love with Steve, but that is no excuse for him to act in such a childish manner. In real life, even after their reconciliation, this stubborn attitude and inability to communicate would not bode well for their marriage. It also took Cathy painfully long to realize that a man who would marry her sister "por despecho" and then profess his love for her even after his marriage is a first class jerk. This book is a must read for any woman who appreciates a man with a caveman attitude.

    The idiot protagonist and her asshole love interest deserve eachother. Absolutely sickening. I feel terribly sad for anybody who reads this and finds the boorish, selfish, manipulative behaviour romantic in any way. There is a constant sense that Grady could revolve into violence or worsen his abusive behaviour. He neglects his child and his wife on purpose and weaponises the circumstances of his previous marriage to remain blameless.

You deserve better from your fantasies and you deserve better in your life. Don’t read this.

    4.5 Stars I kind of fell in love with Grady. Is he a grump. Sure. Was he kind of a jerk to Cathy when his insecurities creeped in and he felt hurt? Absolutely, but aren’t we all? Cathy wasn’t exactly honest and fair towards him all the time either but let’s be honest, they started a relationship for all the wrong reasons. But they also both knew what they were getting into so neither can totally play the victim when circumstances changed and they weren’t forthcoming about their feelings.

    Terrible characters Very unlikable characters. The main character literally jumped from one abusive relationship to another. Usually I root for the couple to make it, but for once I actually would have preferred the main character to have stayed single. She needed some therapy and some self respect.

    I went into this book without many expectations, and overall it was a good book. My overarching feeling about this book is that I feel like I wanted to know more. I don't think we got a good grasp of Grady as a character. It would've helped to have a couple chapters with his perspective or more detail about his past. We got to know Cathy more since the story was from her perspective. The chemistry between Cathy and Grady was confusing at times.

    The Flipped Page (Susan K)

    Romance, PG-13 some sensuality, bit of mild language This is a bit dated, but still a fun read. Cathy's flight (fleeing hurts) to Alaska to teach was a fun read. Her fall with Grady (actually both of theirs), was intense at times, but oh so poignant and wonderfully described. The setting with Grady's work, the school, Grady's daughter, all cute. The backstory with Cathy's sister/her husband (and Cathy's old boyfriend who broke her heart), was well done. Sad that people are really like this.

    They were meant to be together After I had read a few pages of this book I realized I had read it a couple of years ago and had enjoyed it. It was even more enjoyable rereading it. Cathy and Grady were both in need of redirection for their lives. They each had major relationship problems in the past and were not handling their present relationship well. Each of them kept too many personal secrets, but in the end they knew they were meant to be together.

    This book was I hate to say horrible but it was. I love Debbie but this book was just not one of her best. When I think of a novel by Debbie I think of warm and fuzzy, not abusive. This was set in Alaska and Cathy runs there after a breakup with her ex. She meets Grady. This wasn't an abrasive Alaskan man. This was abuse. The story was all over the place also. One minute he's sweet as pie and the next a complete asshole. No explanation given until the end and it's no excuse to be such a dick. This book was I hate to say horrible but it was.

    This is not the feel-good, Hallmark fluff read I so wanted it to be. That Wintry Feeling probably rates as one of my least favorite Debbie Macomber books. This is an older one, repackaged as one of her "classics." It's a bit dated, but not much. This one, like some of her other older books, contains more descriptive scenes of intimacy.

I noticed they didn't pick up in their level of detail, nor did the characters go all the way, until after they were married. That being said, the descriptions were mild compared to other authors' books. But all that is not the reason I disliked the book. I didn't care for the way the characters treated each other. They married quickly, for convenience and under some false pretenses. When things got tough, they treated each other horribly, mostly the husband. Horribly! And the woman took it submissively. There were only five fully likeable characters in the book, and they were minor characters (the daughter, the main character's mom, the main character's best friend and friend's husband, and the main character's husband's co-worker). The main character's ex-boyfriend and her sister recently wed after the main character and ex-boyfriend had a very messy break-up. It's obvious that they still have feelings for each other, yet they go on to marry other people out of spite, almost as if punishing each other for the break-up. The main character's husband marries her because he needs a mother for his child (first wife died, plus first marriage was really rough for him). It's no wonder none of them are truly happy in their marriages. The ex-boyfriend makes matters worse with his lecherous actions through letters and in person. The main character ultimately realizes how shallow her love for her ex was, and that she really was not in love with him anymore when she married the other guy. Honestly, she should have given herself more time to heal and figure out her feelings. She realizes them too little too late and it pretty much ruins her marriage, which is later saved in a nice and tidy, quick ending. Oh, and the dog dies. Need I say more?

    I’ve become a big fan of Debbie Macomber after reading a couple of books from the Blossom Street series. A combination of multidimensional, down to earth characters and a realistic, compelling story that keeps engrossed a person of a short attention span like me, is just classic Debbie magic. Though this one surely had that page-turner quality, the characters seemed less powerful and lacked that extra something that the author usually creatively throws in to make them unique yet believable.

I found Grady quite difficult to sympathize with. His ardent anger toward his ex-wife went beyond an understandable level. I would have liked him more if he was more supportive of his daughter when she was confronting issues of her own. The rather steamy romantic scenes kind of put me off too. I never experienced anything like this from her previous books, so I was a bit let down. Nevertheless, the clear-cut writing style without being too wordy, so characteristic of Macomber, is present. The minor flaws are acceptable overall, considering this being one of her early works.

    Very dated story. Main characters have no communication skills and are really irritating because of it. The most frustrating part is that Cathy's ex starts dating her sister to get back at her and eventually marries her and gets her pregnant then wants Cathy back.

Also not addressed is Cathy's sister's betrayal by dating and marrying her sister's very recent ex. Cathy just ignores the entire situation with her mother and sister and there is never any resolution. So we're expected to believe this dysfunctional family can just move on with no consequences or issues. I really like Debbie Macomber's recent series/books but I'd strongly recommend staying away from any written prior to the mid-90s.

    Debbie is slowly becoming one of my favorite authors. This is the second book of hers I’m reading within a day. Her creativity keeps me attentive, as I have a difficult time staying in tune with a variety of books but hers is uniquely different. It’s a clean romance/family type book, no cursing or overly erotic scenes but still has a punch of drama and perks curiosity. Cathys husband, leaves her for her sister. Crazy right? What a douche bag. And as a result, Cathy “flees” to collect herself. Wh Debbie is slowly becoming one of my favorite authors. This is the second book of hers I’m reading within a day.

It’s a clean romance/family type book, no cursing or overly erotic scenes but still has a punch of drama and perks curiosity. Cathys husband, leaves her for her sister. Crazy right? What a douche bag. And as a result, Cathy “flees” to collect herself. While her new life begins to settle in place, she finds herself looking to date and discovers a spark with Greg; who is also the father of one of the girls she teaches. Things move fairly quickly and they fall “in love” but Cathy still has reoccurring thoughts of her ex, so is she really in love ? As she gets closer to Greg and his daughter Angela, will her past feelings for her past relationship go away or will she break two hearts because she can’t commit to them and be part of their family? Rating 8.5/10 Pros: this is sort of a pro and a con. I hated how accurate some parts were...how certain individuals were treated in the story, mirrored real life and it tugged at my nerves how stupid and selfish some people could be, but at the same time it got me involved in the story. Cons: didn’t like the actions of some of characters. Eligible to be on the screen as a movie/tv series?...yes

    I watched an interview with Debbie Macomber recently, and she just seemed like such a precious gem of a person that I decided to pick up one of her books from the library. I'm not sure I made the right choice -- according to the letter at the end, this was one of her earliest books, so it's likely her writing has evolved and improved. Cathy is hopelessly heartbroken after the man she loves marries her sister, so she moves from Kansas to Alaska to get a fresh start.

Although I liked Angela and the sweetness she brought to the story, it wasn't enough for me to truly enjoy the book. Much of the relationship between Cathy and Grady felt rushed and stilted, which was made worse by a 3 month time skip in the middle. Even though the ending was a happy one, it needed to be drawn out a bit longer. I will likely try reading something else by her, but can't really recommend this one.

    This is an early Macomber, and my, you really can see it. Should have been left to quietly disappear. For one thing, any woman who goes along with a man (I do not care how handsome) who shows up unannounced early on a Saturday morning with his little daughter, her student!, and demands her attention is a woman who need to be a handmaid, but not the main character in a novel supposedly about finding love. Way too much dominance and submission, never been my thing. Also, the way the characters beh This is an early Macomber, and my, you really can see it. Should have been left to quietly disappear.

Way too much dominance and submission, never been my thing. Also, the way the characters behave in general is just unbelievable, starting with a loving father who will not return his special needs daughter’s teacher’s phone calls and continuing with the idea that not only do two people pretend to break up to force the others hands to the point that one marries the others sister and impregnates her, but thinks they can still get together, to actually thinking this has anything to do with love. Two stars is a gift.
