Blue Ice Landing by KA Moll: Audiobook Review

Blue Ice Landing by KA MollBlue Ice Landing by KA Moll is a dramatic romance. It is about Coy and Coby, two women who need to learn to put aside their fears and baggage in order to face their growing attraction.

Coy is a southern, blonde, widow who was studying to become a doctor but she gave up her studies and instead became a physician assistant. When she books her trip to Antarctica she is looking for a career move that could kickstart her life again after her wife’s death. And perhaps also an escape from memories that haunt her.

Coby is alone in the world. She is convinced that she is unlovable and has a secret that she will keep even at the detriment to her recovery from alcoholism. When she is hired to work in Antarctica she puts her life on hold for the opportunity to earn a bit of extra money.

The two women meet on the trip to Antarctica and end up working at the same way station. Their attraction becomes even more intense as they spend more time together, but can they overcome their secrets and hurts enough to let their romance blossom?

The Characters

I liked the characters once I figured out who was who. With similar sounding names I found that difficult at first.

I really liked one of side characters, Diago. He was such a wonderful addition to the story and definitely my favorite character.

The Writing Style

There were a number of lovely touches that made the story a sweet romance. For example Coby learning to cook and making Coy special meals.

The Narration

As always, Emily Beresford doesn’t disappoint. She has good timing and can pull you into the story.

In terms of figuring out which character was which, it would have helped if the accents of the two main characters were a little more different, especially as someone who isn’t familiar with the subtleties of the US accents.

The Pros

I loved the setting, what a great idea to set a romance in such a cold and remote place. I enjoyed the research that went into the book and it made me want to learn more about Antarctica.

The meeting and the reoccurring dialogue theme (about sport) became a lovely part of the romance and made me smile a couple of times.

The Cons

I found Coy to be overly emotional. There was a lot of crying and that was a little bit of a turn off for me.

I would have liked to see more of the romance and chemistry develop.

The Conclusion

This is a good audiobook if you are looking for a romance that is a bit different, if you like characters with some back history and you are okay with a fair amount of crying. I recommend it if you have enjoyed Moll’s other romances or are looking for something a little different.

Excerpt from Blue Ice Landing by KA Moll

Coby tipped back for a mouthful of soda as her team scored its first touchdown. She swallowed and shouted, “Go Bears!”

“Well, I don’t think so,” the curvy woman said, adding extra drawl for emphasis. “Go Packers!” She’d come out of nowhere. It was like having a southern songbird sneak up and scream in your ear.

Coby met her gaze with a grin. “Oh no,” she moaned playfully. “I think a Packer-backer is about to sit next to me.”

“She sure is,” Coy said with a smile. It was smooth and easy, like her demeanor. She settled onto the bar stool, lifting a menu from its holder. “I’ll have a turkey on whole wheat with a house salad,” she said. “To go, if possible,” she added.

“Takeaway it is,” the bartender said. “It’ll be up in a bit.”

“Thank you kindly,” Coy responded as she turned her attention to the green-eyed woman seated next to her. Green, the least common eye color, would make her more susceptible to the sun’s harmful radiation. Her eyes and complexion were a striking contrast to her red copper hair. Underneath green and black flannel, she wore a white t-shirt. The shirt combination was almost, but not quite, enough to conceal the slight swell of her breasts. “Coy Davidson,” Coy said.

Coby startled when Coy touched the back of her hand. The quick movement nearly spilled her drink. “Coby Lee O’Brien,” she stammered.

The corners of Coy’s mouth turned upward, ever so slightly. “Pleased to meet you, Coby Lee O’Brien,” she said. She licked her lips and allowed her gaze to linger.

At 33, Coy Davidson is a beautiful blonde with a southern accent and a successful practice as a physician assistant. She has a comfortable home, good friends, and a loving family. She's also a widow, carrying a burden of responsibility for her wife's untimely death. She lost her footing that day, gave up her dream to be a doctor, and swore off relationships. Now, three years later, she's ready to turn her life on end in an effort to regain what she lost. At 29, Coby O'Brien is a woman with secrets. She's estranged from her family, a recovering alcoholic, and alone because she's convinced that she's unlovable. When she loses her job as a heavy equipment operator, she'll accept one that'll force her to step way outside her comfort zone into a life where nothing is, as it seems. Having caught next to no breaks in life, it may turn out to be her break of a lifetime. When Coy quits her job to accept a position in Antarctica, her path will cross with Coby's. Their attraction to one another will be immediate, and despite their differences, it won't be long before they fall in love. But for these two, with all their baggage, will love be enough?
