    1. I am a natural 1200 wpm speed reader and the author of nineteen self published novels including the free ebook Life, Love, and a Polar Bear Tattoo which has had over 385,000 downloads.In my spare time, I read, run, swim, crochet, take care of my aquarium and my cat Trinity, and play drums and clarinet Generally not all at once.I only record books here if I absolutely love them and hugely recommend them I definitely read than you see here.

    2. Show. Don't tell. I've read books where there was more telling than showing, and yes, it negatively effects the story. Never before, however, have I read a book where there wasn't even a single instance of the author showing the reader anything. This book is 250+ pages of the author telling the reader what's going on. And somehow, even though she tells the reader such banal details as the fact that the female protagonist brushed her hair before leaving the gym, she still managed to leave out cer [...]

    3. This is the first book I have read from Heather Wardell and I loved it! Her writing style is quite unique and the story is very original in my opinion. Every character development in the story was captured my attention. Specially Candice. ;)Though comparing between the two, Ian and Kegan I was quite confused like Candice was. Who wouldn't be? But the way Candice grew through out the novel was absolutely amazing. I loved the fact that she had a friend like Larissa to keep her on her her toes. Eve [...]

    4. This was a free e-book I downloaded from Barnes and Noble because it sounded decent, especially for a free e-book. Starting the book caused me to feel a little lost, as if I was a few pages behind. I didn’t have enough information to understand the weirdness and struggle between Candice and Ian so it felt odd. As the story continued the reader receives for information and is able to start piecing together the event that lead to the near breaking point of their marriage. I struggled to give Ian [...]

    5. Have you ever thought about the one that broke your heart? Candice and Ian have only been married for a short time, but tragedy, misplaced guilt and blame have built a wall of ice and doubt between them. Ian has a month long job overseas, will this time apart give them the chance to examine their true feelings or will outside forces interfere and cut the last remaining tendrils of love they share?A new client has sent Candice reeling, falling down the rabbit hole of heartbreak, fantasy and love [...]

    6. New author for me…surprised this book was a freebie! I really liked this author and the story. It was considered chick lit, but the storyline is so intense and keeps you guessing on the edge of your seat that I’d almost give it a suspense category. I just HAD to finish it once I started. I was beside myself waiting to find out the ending. If the book had had a table of contents (Kindle books sometimes leave them out) I admit I would have “reader cheated” and read the ending to stop my an [...]

    7. This was a free e-book offered by Barnes & Noble. I didn't have expectations for this book. It was free. I was pleasantly surprised. It was a refreshing read. A simple, straightforward plot. No complicated character backstory. It was a needed change after reading A Discovery Of Witches. Candice and her husband Ian's marriage of two years has been a little rocky since his parent's death in a car accident eight months prior to the story's beginning. Their situation is complicated further when [...]

    8. Wow! I really liked this book. It was a freebie on B&N book reader and I was unsure about it when I downloaded it. I don't know what I was expecting but I was NOT expecting to sit at my desk and cry and pour my soul out to a co-worker about how this book touched something inside me. Being married is so hard sometimes. Stressors come into the relationship and past baggage and sometimes it is so hard to forgive the other person. Words are exchanged that can shatter your life and you just shove [...]

    9. This was one of those kindle freebies that simply caught my eye, partly because of the title. I love tattoos and I think polar bears are cute as hell. And the cover is cute too and it was free! However, I didn't expect much from it as my experience with the kindle freebies hasn't always been great Boy, was I surprised.It was one of those weeks in which nothing I picked up held my attention very well and I kept coming back to this one. I first read a few pages just to see if it was worth even kee [...]

    10. For a free download, I didn't have very high expectations. I'd never read the author so I figured I'd give her a shot. I thought it ws very good. It certainly showed the strain marriage can have, especially when there's a long-distance element involved. Sometimes love isn't enough. Yet, sometimes love is -just- enough to muddle through until things get better. I thought the author showed this beautifully.One negative I have to state was that the story didn't flow very well. That is to say, there [...]

    11. This book is an enjoyable, light read, but it lacked depth. The characters never got past the superficial stage - I was never fully invested. The author's transitions weren't always clear, smooth, or concise. Instead she sometimes just let everything drop. There were several times when I flipped back because I felt as if I'd turned more than one page, or turned a page when I hadn't meant to - like something was missing. The chosen topic/storyline was a good one - one readers can relate to. The l [...]

    12. I read this book because the author (hi, Heather!) asked to friend me at , after reading my vitriolic review of the lamentable Big Girl. And hey, she's Canadian! Gotta support those Canadian authors! Once I found that out, I surfed around to find her books. This one was free, but that's not the only reason I chose it; I was intrigued by the blurb about a marriage in crisis, because I like stories about relationships, and because anyone who's married knows that marriages take work, and that grief [...]

    13. As a 30 something married woman, I felt very connected to Candice and her situation. After the death of her in-laws die in a car crash at Christmas while they are out getting her Christmas gift, her life and relationship with her husband completely change and she begins to question what she wants. She has a cancer scare and opts not to tell her husband about it as he is leaving for an overseas trip for a month. She is an assistant to an interior designer and she feels pretty content in her work, [...]

    14. Now here's a really nice love story about the trials and triumphs of a relationship. The title doesn't have much to do with the overall story itself; it's just that the character of the narrator loves polar bears so much she had one tattooed on her.The story tells of what happened in the course of 27 days, almost a month, when a married couple had to live apart because of some job the husband had to go to overseas. It would have been just a month of missing each other, but they parted while ther [...]

    15. I found this light read to be fairly endearing just what I was looking for in a quick escape from the technical and textbook literature. Four stars were given for its laugh out loud humor and relatability. I mean, who of us novice gym-goers immediately actually felt at home and not like an alien landing on another planet upon first entering The Gym. I still giggle thinking about her first day there. Along with the humor, it also depicts the relationships Candice holds with those around her. We a [...]

    16. I like that Heather Wardell writes about flawed people. Her Characters are easy to accept when reading because of their flaws. Though not everyone will like this book because of some of the things her characters do, these things can & do happen in life. ( don't want to have spoilers for those who haven't read the book.)You can be sure I will continue to read Heather Wardell's novels.When Candice's in-laws died in a car accident eight months ago, she lost her husband Ian too. After only two y [...]

    17. Interesting characters and a pretty good plot kept me reading despite the extreme lack of scene transitions and chapter breaks which drove me nuts. Sure, I wanted to smack the main character silly a few times, but I generally think of that as a good thing because it means I care about the character. :) I found myself just as torn toward the end as Candiace was and was genuinely happy with the way the book ended. All in all, good for a free book, but it could have used a little help with editing. [...]

    18. I was very pleasantly surprised by this free nook selection. The title caught my eye and I was curious to find out how I could enjoy a book with a polar bear in the title! The writer held my interest and the flow of the book was very easy to read. I immediately connected with the main character, Candice, and could feel her pain when making one of the biggest decisions of her life. I would highly recommend this book and will definitely read other books by this author.

    19. Who hasn't been plagued by memories of a former love especially that first love! And what would happen if your spouse/partner was on a long term trip and you had the chance to rekindle that relationship. Well, that was Candice's life. I very much enjoyed this story and her exploring the choices that she had to make! Plus, can't go wrong with a FREE Nook book!!!

    20. Rereading my own book? Yup - I'm making a page for my web site of connections between my books so I need to reread them all to make it happen. :)

    21. This book is not worth your time. Some parts of it are moving and well done, yes, but not enough to make up for the rest of it. The characters fall flat and do things that don't make sense. A large part of the book is spent on the protagonist either at the gym or crying, neither of which is interesting enough to merit as much time as they get. The writing is often stilted, with characters saying things like "I don't let people do things against me." ???**spoilers below**In addition, Kegan, the " [...]

    22. WellI know they say never judge a book by its cover. But I did. While the cover does play a role in the story, I can’t help but dislike it very much. In fact I would have skipped the book entirely if it didn’t come recommended. That being said, I wish I would have skipped it. I love books where there’s trouble in paradise and/or plots that have the hint of infidelity. Or ones that do have infidelity. This one wasnd of depressing (even though it shouldn’t be) and the characters were unlik [...]

    23. This is a good readThis is a good read!So I know you say a tattoo it was a good thing I didn't stop like I was going to at first. it's just a matter of time before you get home to the good stuff!!!

    24. Originally reviewed at Books Etc.Ladies and gentlemen, let me present one of my new favourite booksLife, Love, and a Polar Bear Tattoo by Heather Wardell. When Heather first asked me to review her books a little while ago I poked around her website and found an excerpt from this book. I was hooked. I couldn't stop thinking about the story and the characters and wondering how they got through everything. I had quite a few other books to read but when I finally got around to reading Polar Bear I f [...]

    25. Life, Love, and a Polar Bear Tattoo by Heather Wardell ReviewCandice's marriage hasn't been the same since her in-laws died in a car accident coming back from buying her Christmas present. With her marriage on shaky ground and her husband leaving for six weeks to build houses out of the country Candice thinks she'll have plenty of time to decide what she wants to do about her crumbling marriage. Instead she's given a blast from the past, former lover Kegan shows up at the interior design firm Ca [...]

    26. Review: Life, Love, and a Polar Bear Tattoo by Heather Wardell.This was a splendid charming romance story. It was interesting enough and kept me captivated and that says a lot for me because I don’t read too many romances. The story was well written and the characters were fit their roll with accuracy. The novel felt and read with realism even though it was fiction. The main character Candice actions were normal because sometimes people make bad choices or do things they shouldn’t do or a su [...]

    27. Aww I feel all warm and fuzzy:) it's 10pm and I have literally just finished reading this book. I stashed it in to my 'To Review' folder on my Kindle fully intending to review it some time later. I then spotted Seven Exes Are Eight Too Many (also by Heather Wardell) on my Kindle and I thought ooo I'll try that next. As I started to read my subconscious started going cooee over here *waves*, so here I am pen and paper in hand doing it the old fashioned way.Heather Wardell has created a lovely bit [...]

    28. I really, really enjoy Heather Wardell's writing. I read and loved two of her books, Planning to Live, and Go Small or Go Home, and just didn't expect Life, Love and a Polar Bear Tatoo to measure up. It did, though. There's just something about the way Wardell writes that resonates so strongly with me. I think it's the way she develops her characters. It makes me put myself in her characters' shoes so easily. All of her books are written in the first person and I always feel like I could be the [...]

    29. I read Heather's Planning To Live a few months ago and I loved it. I was anxious to read more of her books and there are many. This particular one is a free ebook read @ Barnes and Noble. I actually read it on my smartphone which wasn't exactly a fun experience, as I'm just adjusting to the new device, but back to the book.Heather has definitely created another winning story. It is all about the characters. Candice is a very real, thirtysomething, going through a rough time in her marriage. Kega [...]

    30. Originally reviewed at Novel EscapesLife, Love, and a Polar Bear Tattoo was immediately engrossing for me. I never hesitated in following Candice down whatever thought process or path she was taking and could see parts of myself in her immediately. Wardell did a great job of making her personable from the first page.My gut reaction to Wardell’s novel is that this could be any woman in any marriage, anywhere, at any time. There are always things that trigger a re-examination of your wants in yo [...]

    31. This and other review found at kristineandterri/I received a copy of this book as part of a giveaway.This book has proven difficult for me to pen my exact opinion and thoughts. It was not a terrible book nor an epic read for me falling somewhere in the middle. What this book did do was create a philosophical debate about what I would do if I was in Candace' shoes. How would you react if the one you had committed your life to said something unforgivable (in my opinion)? How do you move on? How d [...]
