The setting in Twice in a Blue Moon really got me - I soooo want to go see the Ice Hotel and the Northern Lights now. The whole arctic wilderness was a fantastic setting for this romance. Both characters love the wilderness - but for different reasons. They thrive under very physical conditions, and I think I was expecting to see just a little more "stunts" from this. It seemed like I wanted a little more wilderness adventure style to this sometimes.
There was a very slight paranormal aspect to the romance as Melanie feels the presence of her deceased husband very strongly at times. But this is about as far from a ghost story as you can get. This is about two very lonely people finally finding that perfect someone to complete them.
It was such a sweet story - and I loved the dogs. How you can you not love sleigh dogs? A few of them even had a very distinctive personality. It was fun to see them worked into the story (along with a couple of real life reindeer). I really disliked Melanie's co-worker, Hayden, though. He was too much of a complete jerk. Even the bad ones should have a reason or some other redeeming quality.
