Toehold, Alaska, population 200, is a bush village about as far away from the world as you can get without falling into the Arctic Ocean. The residents are a motley crew of Alaskans and refugees from the lower 48, each one running from the past in one way or another. All are drawn to the northern wilderness by its raw and naked force.

The story focuses on the chemistry between Cody, a taxidermist who grew up in San Francisco, and Mel, a gal drifter who decides to lead a grizzly-bear hunt in order to raise the money she needs to care for her teenage daughter. When her customer appears, a hard-edged Hollywood producer seeking the glory of the kill and used to being fawned over by every woman he meets, Mel and Cody find themselves forced to resolve the romantic tension they've both been ignoring for years.

    " i didn't finish it. i might have if i were reading, but the CDs were driving me crazy. he tells an ok anecdote... all the side characters had interesting stories. but the big picture wasn't doing it for me. for heaven's sake *show* me, don't give me internal monologues of a couple of neurotics. "

    " This book will not be counted as a favorite. It started out interesting and ended as predictable. I finished the book, only because I was searching for a few redeeming qualities, but I was very disappointed. I cannot in good faith recommend this novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marion | 7/12/2011

    " Toehold is a perfect book. it could not be improved upon. richly drawn characters in wonderful settings. filled with humour the story was entrancing. an excellent ending. I could not put this book down. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Susan | 5/18/2011

    " Impossibly bad writing. Couldn't finish. The story line,(quirky people find themselves scrambling for a living and a human connection in the unforgiving Alaskan wilderness) had potential. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 marissa | 6/4/2010

    " This book started off well but then it detirated and I stopped reading close to the end. I didn't recognize the characters from the initial storytelling and it all fell apart for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eriel | 3/23/2010

    " Recommeded by a B&B owner from Anchorage. Northern Exposure meets the Mississippi Mudbellies- deceit, love, slaying, and Ice. Alaska vernacular at its finest! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jaci | 8/8/2009

    " It was a quick, fluffy read and held my attention. Had hoped for more Alaska information since my daughter is moving there, but the bear information was sufficient. I can see this being made into a movie at some point. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jayme VA | 3/19/2008

    " I finished this only because I do not like leaving books unfinished. While there were maybe two notable lines, the rest was scattered. There was certainly potential for a good story somewhere had he chosen to stick to one train of thought for more than two sentences. "
