For LA publicist Sydney Green, walruses are the key to saving her job and her love life. That's why she's agreed to spend a month at a walrus preserve in remote Alaska producing a documentary - a cause célèbre piece featuring Hollywood heartthrob Blake McKinley, Sydney's stalwart client and sometimes boyfriend. But this accomplished city girl finds herself woefully ill-equipped for life in her new rugged surroundings.

Despite no electricity or indoor plumbing, Sydney perseveres, even if the group's chief scientist, Ethan Eckert, is one of the most difficult people she's ever encountered - and she works in Hollywood! Things go from bad to worse when she discovers that spotty satellite and Internet service makes extinguishing fires back at the office nearly impossible, but when Blake arrives arm in arm with both her work nemesis and a sexy starlet, Sydney is soon forced to choose between doing what's easy and doing what's right.

    " At first glance - fun cover, and great title! Overall, a really enjoyable chick lit book! I loved that this was a story I had NEVER read before - by that I mean, it tackled a topic, environmentalism, in an area, Alaska, that i had never read about while maintaining a lot of the main elements of the chick lit/woomen's fiction genre. I didn't know what to expect at first. Like the leading heroine, Sydney Green, I don't know much about walruses. I don't care to know much about walruses, but getting into the events and sitiuations Sydney found herself in, my opinion changed. Of course, the story had more than its fair share of drama, humor and love triangles, taking readers on a real adventure from the sunny skies of LA to the long days in the Arctic Ocean. What I loved most about this book was its growth, not oonly in the main character but the story in general and how it changed me as a reader. The end was a tad abrupt but managed to give readers what they needed for closure. I am definitely going to check out some of Beth Orsoff's earlier novels! "

    " Kept my attention throughout. Predictable, of course (but what chick-lit isn't?). But I think I really liked this one. A notch above the average fare. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Louise | 1/7/2014

    " Loved it! Couldn't put it down....romance, adventure ! "

    " funny so far "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathleen Crowell | 1/3/2014

    " Some really funny moments--loved Ethan's bitter sarcasm. Sydney had some good moments, too. The storyline beyond the walrus' was pretty dull and unoriginal. Blake was the cookie-cutter celebrity, but it was fun anyway. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 12/28/2013

    " A great story! A very quick, light chick lit read with a bit of environmentalism thrown in. Plus it took place in Alaska, another reason for me to love this book! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barb | 12/27/2013

    " Story of an LA publicist volunteering at an Alaskan walrus wildlife refuge, ostensibly to make a conservation promo video to improve her actor client's image. Light, chick lit but fun read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicola | 12/25/2013

    " Very cute book, environmentalism and chick lit! I found this book on the B & N website...it was on sale as a NOOK Book. It was well worth the $3.99 I paid. The author did a fair amount of research on walrus preservation in Alaska. The characters grew on you, maybe more of a 4.5. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 carabellisima | 12/21/2013

    " Cute story. Learned lots about being a publicist and learning is always fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lena Gardner | 12/21/2013

    " I loved this. It put a smile on my face every time I fired up my kindle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ahna | 11/26/2013

    " Hard to get into, but cute in the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jay | 10/2/2013

    " This was a cute chick lit book but the end was weird. it was like the author just gave up and decided to stop writing. a better last chapter/epilogue would have gotten this 5 stars. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christine | 9/17/2013

    " Fun little read (chick-lit). Likeable interesting characters and locations. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Celeste Deal | 8/30/2013

    " I surely enjoyed this... it was an easy ready and enjoyable storyline. Great for a week off. But now what will I read, I still have 3 days left? "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Max Trumble | 7/25/2013

    " Ugh. It took forever to get to the meat of this story. I did alot of sighing. Character just BLAH. I didn't finish, so perhaps it picks up? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 7/24/2013

    " Really great chick-lit. Predictible, but gave me a lot of laughs and was a quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laura | 6/15/2013

    " Really 3.5/5. A fun adult chick-lit. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanne Bringley | 6/12/2013

    " Actually more like 3-1/2. It followed pretty closely the formula for chick lit but it was a quick summer read and for 99 cents it was a nice diversion. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ashley | 5/6/2013

    " An LA girl go to Alaska for a month...what do you think will happen? What you thought is probably true. Don't read it. Read her other books because they are much better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sassapphras | 1/4/2013

    " Surprisingly cute Chick Lit. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Suzy | 12/8/2012

    " Terrible story with no likable (main) characters. Gave it a second star only because the Alaska stuff was accurate. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindy Dale | 10/7/2012

    " I enjoyed this but didnt find it as good as the first book I read by the author. Very unusual setting for a story - I would never think of a walrus island. Sydney was a bit clueless in parts and Ethan very brusque but I like him. Predictable plot in parts but thats what I like in an easy read "

About the Author
A native of New York City, Beth Orsoff has long sought to return to her primordial roots by refusing to live more than an hour’s drive from the ocean. She spent her formative years working as a lifeguard, thrilled to be paid to work on her tan, until her parents forced her to get a “real” job. And so she headed to law school — conveniently near the beaches of southern California — and launched a career as an entertainment attorney. Today she lives in Los Angeles, dividing her time and energy between writing fiction and drafting Hollywood contracts.
