Adventures of an Ice Princess
Liz Maverick
NAL, Oct 2004, $12.95, 260 pp.
ISBN: 0451213009

Clarissa has lived with Kieran for eight years and thinks he is about to propose. Her best friends Delilah and Kate agree and even throw an engagement party, but Kier fails to give her a ring. Instead he breaks up with her after she quits her job to become a housewife to him. She returns to her mom’s place with her tail dragging.

While Clarissa mopes, her friends try to cheer her up without success. Her mom wanting her daughter back on her feet and happy gives a brochure on Antarctica to Kate. Before Clarissa knows what is happening she is on her way to Antarctica for employment accompanied by her two buddies. There the male to female ratio is 4:1 with most of the men being single.

Though the heroine is in her late twenties-early thirties this is a coming of age chick lit tale. Readers will have to adjust to decisions that flaky Clarissa makes but will find the time worth doing. Antarctica serves as a terrific backdrop even if plunging into the icy water seems cold for even a polar bear. Chick lit fans will appreciate this fine tale of a woman trying to find herself in the frozen Antarctic tundra.
