review 1: THE ICECUTTER’S DAUGHTER by Tracie Peterson is a warm romance with characters you can’t help but like.Merrill Krause has been outnumbered her entire life. Caring for her brothers and her father hasn’t left her with much time for self, but she doesn’t mind. She loves working alongside her brother’s, and caring for her father’s horses brings her joy. But, sometimes Merrill wonders what it would be like to have a suitor pursue her, that is, if they could get past her imposing brothers determined to protect her.Rurik Jorgenson has come to help his Uncle Carl in his furniture business. When he meets Merrill he is immediately intrigued. She is strong and independent, and unlike any woman he’s ever known. Spending time helping her brother’s bring in the ice ... moreharvest is his excuse to be near Merrill and soon their attraction for each other grows. But when Rurik’s previous fiancée comes to town making outrageous claims against Rurik, his relationship with Merrill is threatened.I thoroughly enjoyed THE ICECUTTER’S DAUGHTER. Merrill is a strong character and Rurik is genuine and kind. I loved watching their relationship develop. The secondary characters in the book added to my overall enjoyment of the story. As some have said, the story might have been predictable, but there were a few twists I didn’t expect. Next up, THE QUARRYMAN’S BRIDE.
review 2: Taking place at the close of the 19th century, this book tells the story of the only daughter in a large, loving German American family in Minnesota. Merrill has cared for her father and four older brothers since her mother's death. As she approaches her 21st birthday, her father worries he has kept her from having a family of her own.
