Isabella Donato just can’t resist those electric blue eyes of Chad Murphy. They are the main reason she fell in love with him. But now, on the eve of their marriage, she’s experiencing twinges of doubt. Why?

Why, indeed? This is the intriguing start to Patricia M. Jackson’s latest novel, and it’s an absorbing, unique tale of romance and conflict, set against the backdrop of professional hockey and small town values.

Isabella takes on the task of tutoring Chad so he can keep his grades up and continue his role as “Manic Murphy” on the Northern Michigan University hockey team. It’s no easy feat. Chad is dyslexic and cannot read. It’s a miracle he’s come this far academically.

But the tutoring sessions turn torrid when Chad and Izzy find they just can’t keep their hands off each other. These scenes are particularly well done, and they are guaranteed to steam up your reading glasses.

We give Isabella five unqualified stars and can’t wait for more from this talented storyteller.
