There are a few places screenwriter Lou Calabrese would rather be than crammed into a helicopter with Jack Townsend, star of her claim to fame, Copkiller, and whose ex just ran off with Lou’s ex. Talk about uncomfortable. But when, halfway out to the isolated arctic location where Copkiller IV is currently shooting, their pilot turns murderous and their helicopter crashes, Lou realizes her day has just gotten a lot worse.
Now, while family and friends back home fret over her disappearance, Lou is on the run in the arctic wilderness with America’s sweetheart Jack Townsend and only the contents of her purse, his pockets, and their mutual knowledge of survival movie trivia to keep them alive. Can these two children of Hollywood put aside their differences and make it back home without killing each other? Or much, much worse, actually start to like one another?

A highly enjoyable read
This was the first of Meggin Cabot‘s (aka Meg Cabot, Patricia Cabot etc.) books that I have read and I found that I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to read more from her.
The story centres around Lou and Jack, who have both just been dumped and now find themselves stranded in the Alaskan wilderness after a fateful helicopter ride.
Lou is a self-sufficient girl who you can’t help but like and relate to and Jack is the gorgeous actor you can’t help but want for yourself. The chemistry between the two characters was evident throughout and their interactions at times poignant, sexy, funny but always enjoyable.
The way the pair are forced together and have to survive together in the wilderness makes this more than your usual romantic story. There’s a nice mix of adventure and mystery on top of the romance to make this a really fantastic book and one which I found that I couldn’t put down.
I would recommend this book to all those who enjoy a fun, romantic read but with a little added extra – I’m sure you won’t be disappointed.
Meg Cabot was born in Bloomington, Indiana during the Chinese astrological year of the Fire Horse, a notoriously unlucky sign, but learned at an early age that a good storyteller can always give herself a happy ending. Her 80+ books for both adults and tweens/teens have included multiple #1 New York Times bestsellers, selling over twenty-five million copies worldwide. Her Princess Diaries series has been published in more than 38 countries and was made into two hit films by Disney. Meg’s numerous other award-winning books include the Mediator series, the Heather Wells mystery series, and Avalon High, the later of which was made into a film for Disney Channel. Meg Cabot (her last name rhymes with habit, as in “her books can be habit forming”) currently lives in Key West with her husband and various cats.
Also writes as Meggin Cabot, Patricia Cabot and Jenny Carroll.
