Quotes & Awards

  • “A snowstorm hits a small town in Maine, trapping strangers in a cabin: Danielle, who is homeless, and Eric, a lawyer who swoops in to help her. As temps drop, tensions rise and passions flare.”

    Good Housekeeping

  • “Snowbound in Maine, two strangers struggle to survive—fighting, flirting, baring secrets. Their sexy, snappy dialogue will keep you racing through.”

    People magazine

  • The Remedy for Love is a page-turner, a love story, and a vivid drama of man (and woman) against the elements…A great read by a wonderful writer who obviously has many tricks up his sleeve.”

    Newsday

  • “[Roorbach] creates believably damaged, oddball characters: a buttoned-up, cuckolded small-town stud, and a bruised, half-starved mystery girl…The story then finds its theatrical groove, with crackling, smart dialogue that made me think Taylor-Burton in Who’s Afraid of Virginia Wolfe? Within the chilled and claustrophobic confines of the cabin, as Danielle’s mysteries unfold and the storm outside rages, you think you know where things are headed, but how Roorbach gets us there is unexpected, sexy, and intense. Edgy and quite moving, the story stuck with me for many days.”

    Amazon.com, editorial review

  • “[A] superbly grown-up love story…Another expertly delivered portrait of the world from Roorbach, that poet of hopeless tangles.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “Part survival tale and part romance…Roorbach does well in the limited space, keeping the narrative tight without being claustrophobic…There’s more depth to the fierce and mercurial Danielle than meets the eye, which gives [the characters’] interactions spark as the storm rages outside and something even more powerful develops within.”

    Booklist

  • “Narrator Jeffrey Kafer taps into the rhythm of this story… Listeners easily sense the incremental changes in mood as Eric and Danielle move through a full arc of emotions, starting with their mutual distrust and annoyance at being stuck together. Kafer’s tone lightens when the pair finally indulge in the coziness of being hunkered down to wait out the storm. Later his voice sharpens and his pace quickens as the couple face the nightmare of howling winds, growing snowdrifts, and the possibility of death. Kafer excels at the dialogue, skillfully bringing out the characters’ personalities and their changing relationship.”
