  • Strictly Fantastic

    What a super debut novel. I loved every minute of Helen Buckley’s Strictly on Ice. Katie’s skating career was cut short by an accident, and the last thing she wants is to take part in a reality TV show, sport star to skating star and to be partnered with ex-rugby player, Jamie, especially when her ex is one of the judges. Katie and Jamie are such great characters, really easy to believe in and empathise with. Their story was a fast-paced page turner, that I didn’t want to put down. Read and enjoy!

  • Perceptive and thought-provoking story

    It starts with the accident that ends Katie’s skating career (caused by her skating partner Alex). Her ankle was severely damaged & she has never forgiven him. Forward to the present day and Katie has been invited to compete in a new reality TV programme (like Dancing on Ice). She needs the money so reluctantly accepts. She is paired with ex-rugby player Jamie who has demons of his own to get over. Both Katie and Jamie were badly portrayed in the press and lies told about them. As a result, they are judged on those personas rather than who they are now. The big twist to the TV programme is that Alex is one of the judging panel. Katie would never have agreed to take part if she had known he was there too. Helen Buckley gives an accurate portrayal of an abusive relationship whilst managing to keep you guessing about how things will turn out with Katie, Alex, and Jamie. I loved the ending too.

  • Fabulous story with unexpected twists. Highly reco

    I loved every minute of this novel. Fascinating insight into the less than glamorous world of competitive ice skating. Katie was at the top of her career and aiming for the gold medal with her partner Alex, when that dream was shattered. She blames Alex but loses everything. Whose fault was the accident and is she really the “ice queen” as named by the press? When she then has to skate with novice Jamie, who has his own unsavoury reputation, on national television, what could be the outcome? A fabulous first novel, I couldn’t put it down; it’s definitely a favourite of mine now and I will look forward to rereading again in the future. Highly recommend!

  • Has it all!

    Wow! This book has it all! Romance, sport, competition, happy, sad, laughter and tears. It will hit all your emotions. Think you've guessed that I loved it. I kept reading far too late into the night as wanted to see what happened next. Katie, Jamie and Alex are very human characters with all our faults and also our redeeming factors. I am sure you will enjoy this as much as I did.

  • Sweet Story of Redemption

    What a sweet story in this book. Katie is a world-class ice skater who had a tragic accident. Jamie is an ex-Rugby player who is paired up with Katie for a reality ice dancing show. It was a lovely book to read and I highly recommend it. You’ll be rooting for Katie and Jamie too!

    Thanks for your feedback!
