by Karin Kallmaker
Anidyr Bycall is frozen in her past, regretting words never spoken to the woman she loves and the one impulsive act that cost her all her dreams. Running from the courts of public and academic opinion in Fairbanks, she has landed in Key West. The nights are hot but she is colder than the glaciers she once explored.
Tending bar by night, she spends her days immersed in the research of her only remaining passion in life: the ice fields of Alaska. But trends may be improving when news from home hints that those she harmed may have moved on, and she can at least recover the papers and books she left behind. The respect and affection she once saw in Eve Cambra’s eyes is gone beyond recall.
When a few innocent questions raise Ani’s doubts about what really happened three years ago, she realizes she may have a chance to clear her name and reclaim her career. But there’s no data to suggest that Eve has thawed and that the fire they once shared can be rekindled.
In this romantic story of the icy north, Karin Kallmaker explores the passion that can melt even a frozen heart.
Anna Furtado - Jan/Feb 2010: Kallmaker has given us insight into human emotion along with beautiful descriptions of the Alaskan glacial terrain. Warming Trend will teach as well as entertain, and the broken relationship between Eve and Ani will have the reader on tenterhooks until the end.
R. Lynne Watson - October 2010: Kallmaker has given her fans a beautifully written novel, complete with breathtaking descriptions of Alaska. Hers is not the Alaska of the cruise lines, but the heart of Alaska, with particular attention to its glaciers, ice, and northern lights... She has told her story with great language, wit, and warmth. She's even included a very large, very lovable dog. If you're a Kallmaker fan, or if you're new to her work, Warming Trend is not to be missed.
