This is my first time reading this author. I was in the mood for a thriller and happened to notice this for free. I got it and I read it in two days. I would have finished it sooner, but work comes first.

I really like the story. It was suspenseful at times, and I grew to love the main character, Rene. I liked how the author based the story around Domestic Violence, which is so prevelant in our society, but people are not proscecuted as often due to the fear of the spouse and children. I will be downloading other books by this author. I look forward to where else she can take me.

Rene Desmond is on the run! Deathly scared of her abusive husband Mark, Rene and her sister Maddy concocted an elaborate escape plan from Houston, TX to Sad Horse, Alaska. The temperature might be cold inside the Arctic Circle, but Rene and her two children Seth and Sara found warmth from the very caring townspeople of Sad Horse. And Rene also found herself very attracted to Brett, the town's patriarch and Rene's boss. The attraction was mutual.

Unknown to Rene, Mark was hell bent on finding her, following Rene's false trail to Europe. Finding only Maddy, Mark walked a destructive path of lies and deceit plus assault and battery. To Mark, Rene had to be punished for leaving him and he would not stop until his wife got what she deserved.

Alternating scenes between Houston and Sad Horse and the story being told in several points of view, the readers are treated to a romantic suspense that is worthy of Tom Clancy and John LeCarre. All the characters, including teh supporting ones are fleshed out and thus readers can find themselves living Rene's nightmare while wondering what is going on with Mark's convoluted mind.

I seriously don't understand how this book has a 5 star review from 12 reviewers.

The reason I gave it 2 stars was because of the premise. I really did like the beginning of the book. However, the further you got into the book the less sense things were beginning to make.

I'd compare this book to the way a kid writes a term paper/book report. They start out with a great idea and great designs on where they want to go but as time goes on and it takes longer than they anticipated and they're starting to lose focus they rush to just get it done and over with.

I don't understand how Rene's boss fell in love with her so quickly when there really seemed to be little, if any, contact/interaction with them besides him picking her up at the airport and making sure she got set up in the school. Then people start falling in love all around them all willy-nilly. You never really get a feel for the characters because there's no development of them.

The thing that completely did me in and just annoyed me was when her sister Maddy 'sensed something was wrong' and had to immediately 'get her mink and fly to Alaska. Husband, kids and plausibility be damned!' Seriously? If it was a paperback and not my Kindle I would've thrown it across the room.

I really can't be too upset since I got this book for free but the reviews completely threw me. I know they're subjective but seriously a full 5 stars and I disliked it THAT much? Something isn't right there...

I loved the story, the sister helping get the abused wife out of a rotten relationship and the great town of Sad Horse. Rene is able to get free with a trip she didn't go on but her sister did. If it weren't for their stupidity she may have gotten away with out her husband finding her for a long time but that would have ruined the suspense.

I have to agree with other reviewers who questioned how fast that Rene fell in love with Brett with very little interaction between them, How she was this perfect person at everything she did even if she had never ever done it before and why didn't Brett check her teaching credentials prior to actually hiring her?

The town of Sad Horse seems to be a conglomeration of outcasts with self esteem issues and because of the issues they have they are more than happy to welcome anyone who appears in town. I have decided that I want to move to Sad Horse so I can find my place in this world. Also I would love the long winters being stuck in the house as long as I have my kindle.

Running from an abusive husband in Texas, Rene and her two children make it to a small town in Alaska where she hopes the combination of small town and remote location will keep them safe. She hangs on to that belief until she learns her ultra-possessive husband has her sister, Maddie, in his sights, and is using her as bait for Rene's compliance. How Rene keeps all the balls in the air while trying to keep everyone she loves safe, makes for edge of your seat reading. This was an absolutely fascinating read with enough plot twists to keep you guessing until the end. If you're looking for a can't-put-it-down thriller, pick On Ice.

Saying good-bye to Mrs. Mark Edward Desmond and hello to the rest of her life took all the strength Rene could muster. A convoluted escape plan set up with the help of her brave sister got her out of the house and on the road with her two children, seven year-old Seth and his little sister Sara. Changing her life and getting away from the monster who terrified them all was her main goal. It took all her courage to ignore his whispered words of killing everyone she loved if she ever left him. She had no choice if she didn't want him to ruin her children's futures like he would. Hugged by her frightened little boy as he choked out the words...I hope he never finds us gave her the spirit necessary to move them all to Anchorage Alaska and start a new life as a schoolteacher for a small mining community. Her new boss, a brute of a man, fierce like a gorgeous blue-eyed 'teddy bear' picked her up and brought her to her new home, a cabin in the wilds where she met warm kind-hearted people, wildlife in their natural setting and a way of life she grew to love. But...her husband's hate never lessened...he wanted revenge, and not just for her but for her sister also. This was a brilliant story and I got so involved in the characters, I couldn't put it down. Loved the rich descriptions and the story telling was excellent.
