. . . well written , In a way that doesn’t tug at your emotions like other mystery novels do, It eased you into the mystery, the drama, the sensations . . . the storyline makes me want to fall in love.
One of the better reads I’ve had in a while . . . I appreciate . . . the novel lampshading . . . that a truer understanding demands a deeper lived experience than the events depicted (or, implicitly) the depiction can convey. Too few novels make the distinction, and it is one that needs to be made.
Caroline McCullagh has woven elements of mystery, romance, and cross-cultural adventure into this, the first in a series of novels with Anne O’Malley at their center . . . well written . . . so compelling I couldn’t put it down.

This will appeal to men as well as women. One of the best reads in a long time. Rich in detail with intriguing aspects of life in the far north . . . The power of the book rests in the no-clutter, perfectly worded dialog.
A great read. Very few books do I wish to read more than once but this book is an exception . . . I couldn’t put it down . . . Caroline McCullagh expertly weaves a mystery, love story, history and sociology lessons into a magic carpet of wonder.
Anne O’Malley is the feisty lady who mixes romance, genealogy, travel, detective work, and cultural exploration.
A page-turner I couldn’t put down. A great read.
The world of the frozen North is displayed in immersive glory, and it’s where this book really shines.
. . .A sheer pleasure to read.
A sensual read . . . Smells, sounds, sights, textures, tastes, and gentle erotica are served in ample supply.
Caroline McCullagh’s deft storytelling teaches us much about a culture of which most of us are unaware. You will love this book.
I haven’t had this much fun reading prose in a while.
Now I know what people mean when they say, “I couldn’t put it down!”
The author shares her fascination and life-long love of the Inuit with us and we are better for it.
A worthwhile read, a well-written book for you to carry to that comfortable chair for an enjoyable few hours.
