#Bookreview – Skating on Thin Ice by Jacquie Biggar

Book reviews

What Amazon says

Sam Walters has made a deal with the devil.

In order to win a much-needed contract as physical therapist to one of the NHL’s leading hockey teams, Sam must delay the recovery of their sniper, Mac Wanowski. The trouble is, the more she gets to know the taciturn hockey player, the more she aches to help him.

Mac ‘The Hammer’ Wanowski chased the Stanley Cup dream for too many years. Last time he was close it had cost him his wife. As injuries continue to plague the team, Mac works to catch a killer and keep the woman he’s come to love from the hands of a madman.

Hockey can be a dangerous sport, especially when millions of dollars are at stake.

My review

This book is the perfect mixture of romance with an action packed story line to keep you turning the pages. The author does a great job of drawing the reader into the world of ice hockey and the murky world of match fixing and deals with the mob. Mac Wanowski is a champion ice hockey player and, with him on board, his team looks set to win the season. This does not suit everyone and Mac is seriously injured while playing in a match two weeks before the final. He is sent away to a remote cabin in the mountains to heal. The team’s doctor delivers his niece, Sam, a physical therapist who desperately needs a break, to assist Mac with a speedy recovery. Little does he know that she has been offered the opportunity to obtain a contract as the physical therapist to Mac’s team but, in return, she must slow down his recovery.

When Sam meets Mac her soft heart quickly goes out to him, especially when she learns of theloss of his wife and unborn baby in a terrible accident a few years previously. Sam is also attracted to the taciturn hockey star and she can sense it is reciprocated. Sam makes a decision to try to help Mac and ensure that he is able to play in the final match of the season but she is unaware that there are other, much more dangerous people lurking, who are determined to keep Mac off the ice.

I enjoyed the character of smolderingly sexy Mac, with his heartbreaking past, and the sweet and big hearted, Sam, with her history of financial anxiety and determination to succeed in a male dominated profession.

An entertaining and easy read with a great twist at the end and lots of romantic ups and downs to keep you on the edge of your seat.

  1. I love the sound of this book, Robbie–and Jacquie. I enjoy romance but am more of a thriller reader so you caught by attention by blending the two, Robbie. I’ve read other books by Jacquie. I’ll check this out.

  2. Hmm… Romance is not a genre I usually read but have seen some reviews of Jacquieโ€˜s books and have been tempted. ๐Ÿ˜‰ This one sounds pretty good. Will check it out. Thanks, Robbie.

  3. A terrific review, Robbie and your starting sentence encapsulates the book perfectly, drawing us in to read on. Great for Jacquie to keeping the tension throughout the book, combining romance and action and it’s so vital to nail the twist in the end. I do become frustrated if a story twist is evident early on … this can cause a book to feel rather flat.
