This book was hysterical and the story of two complete opposites trying to fight their attraction just adds to the fun!
Good story, good characters, good humor...all-in-all, I just loved it! Would definitely recommend to anyone.
Rather than leave for the coast, an angry, abashed Claire demands a room and lodge owner John McBride reluctantly complies. John loathes the type of career woman Claire is and detests her uncouth actions towards Bryan and his new woman yet he cannot stop his attraction to her. As John and Claire fall in love over her nine days in Colorado, someone wants her dead. Armed with a cell phone and John, Claire hopes to live long enough to enjoy her vacation.
This novel is a humorous contemporary romance starring two wonderful lead characters. The story line is superb when it stays TRUE NORTH as a romantic romp. When the tale veers west into suspense, the plot loses some of its focus. Still Beverly Brandt provides readers with an amusing look at love and the career woman that fans of modern day tales will enjoy.
Arriving at the lodge, Claire seethes when she sees her fiance going into their cabin with the bimbo from the plane. Seeking out the lodge owner, John McBride, Claire decides to stay in a tiny, cramped spare room to finish out her vacation - and seek a little revenge on her now ex-fiance and his paramour.
The lodge offers daily outings and activities, which provide Claire with plenty of amusing opportunities for revenge. But lodge owner John McBride, feeling inexplicably drawn to Claire, is providing Claire plenty of distraction himself.
Other lodge guests make up for some interesting, wacky sub-plots and the daily adventures take alot of entertaining twists and turns. Add in the suspense and the humor and this is a sexy story you just got to love!
To her rescue comes John McBride but neither of them is very friendly to each other. John is actually the lodge owner, but Claire believes him to be simply the handyman and John does nothing to correct her impression. They also infuriate each other to no end but the sexual tension is undeniable.
When Claire arrives at Hunter's Lodge she discovers the luxurious suite she has reserved and paid for, is inhabited by her fiancé and his new girlfriend. Unfortunately, there are no more available rooms but Claire insists on staying and a small room above a garage - no more than a glorified closet really - is readied for her.
Claire is unable to set her workaholic ways behind her. Her idea of a vacation seems to be working with her computer and cell phone with short breaks to order room service. When she discovers she has temporarily been promoted and her workload doubles, she spends much of her vacation working. OF course this does nothing to endear her to John McBride whose mother is a CEO of a large cosmetic firm and whose ex-wife is the COO of the same company. He's had his fill of workaholic women.
Claire does finally take a well-deserved break and joins the group on a river rafting excursion where her inexperience puts the entire group in danger, infuriating John even further. However, eventually John and Claire's attraction to one another cannot be denied. But will John come to her rescue when she discovers a discrepancy in insurance claims and her life is in mortal danger?
As wonderful as John and Claire are, beautifully-drawn secondary characters add even more to this wonderful story. Particularly widower George Isler who is vacationing with his two orphaned teenage granddaughters and Mary Beth McBride, John's widowed mother who eventually enter into a very friendly relationship; womanizer and cad William and his meek wife Peggy; as well as Claire's ex-fiance Bryan and his new girlfriend, Cindy.
Talk about a page-turner!! This book had me up into the wee hours reading it when I thought I'd just read a chapter or two. But I was hooked from the beginning and couldn't put it down. Although there were a few minor problems including a suspected threat to John that really goes nowhere and seems not to have a resolution, the story as a whole is one to savor. I just love discovering new writers! Debut author Beverly Brandt has a wonderful future ahead of her if TRUE NORTH is any indication of her talent. I can hardly wait for her next book.
