Review: On Ice by J.D. Faver

On Ice by J.D. Faver


Description:
A terrified woman erases her past to escape her abusive husband. Taking her children, she disappears from Texas only to reinvent herself as a teacher in a remote Alaskan village. She fights to survive the harsh environment, while ever mindful of the danger stalking her. A complication emerges in the form of her new boss who is unaware of her entanglement and pursues her with a passion. Hungry for a father figure, her young children immediately take to him, but she is haunted by the cruel man who battered her. Can a good man heal her scars and gain her trust? As she evolves in her new role, she becomes stronger as a person. Back in Texas, her sister draws the abuser's fury and becomes his new victim. When her past catches up with her, she is not the same woman who ran away. She puts her life on the line to protect her children, but will she survive the wrath of a sociopath bent on revenge?


My Thoughts:
I picked this up free for Kindle and I really enjoyed it. When we meet Rene she is running from an abusive husband along with her two young children. With the help of her sister, she sets out to make a new life for herself, but she lives in fear that he will find them and kill her.  The point of view shifts to her sister Maddy and the psycho husband so we see what is going on back home, though Rene has no idea. There are many great characters, both in Alaska and back in Texas, that add a bit of fun to the story. The whole time you're wondering when the husband will catch up to her and what he will do when he finds her. A great read if you love romance (that is not too explicit) and suspense that keeps you turning pages.
