Product description

Product Description

A quick-witted, contemporary romance about losing your cool.

What woman doesn’t love a real-life hero? Harriet Scott, for one. The fiercely independent daughter of famous adventurers, she grew up travelling the world on the environmental flagship The Watch. So when Harriet’s ship sinks in Antarctica and she has to be rescued by Commander Per Amundsen, an infuriatingly capable Norwegian naval officer and living breathing action hero, her world is turned upside down.

Like their namesakes, the original Scott and Amundsen who competed to reach the South Pole first, Per and Harriet have different ways of doing things. Per thinks Harriet is an accident waiting to happen; Harriet thinks Per is a control freak. But when Harriet realises that Per is the only one who can help her fund the new ship she desperately wants, she is forced to cooperate with him.

Per refuses to assist unless Harriet allows him to teach her to swim. But there is more to Harriet’s terrible fear of water than meets the eye. Can Harriet face her fears and come to terms with the trauma and loss of her past? And will she begin to appreciate that some risks are well worth taking—and that polar opposites can, in fact, attract?

Praise for IN AT THE DEEP END:

'A light, fun contemporary romance with plenty of action and adventure, balanced out with a deep side of psychological scars, phobias, and a strong ecological message. The opening scene hooked me in and I was intrigued to find out if these opposites would attract. If you like control freak alpha male heroes and strong-willed, accident prone heroines, then this is for you. I reviewed a complimentary copy.' — Renee Conoulty, Netgalley

'This was a very real story which had me wanting to defend Harriet from those who would do her harm and cheer on the people in her life who had her back. The chemistry between Per and Harriet is very believable making you just want to shake both of them at times for their sheer stupidity. I started reading this book in the middle of the night while waiting for a child to return home from an evening out and basically gave up going to bed because I wanted to see how the story would end. Nothing in this book is easy and that's what makes it oh so much more readable.' — Narelle Richards, Netgalley

This was such a satisfying, fun read. I was asked if I'd like to review this book a little while ago and was super busy at the time but the premise intrigued me. Thankfully I said yes because I had so much fun following Harriet's journey. I immediately identified with her and loved how she held her own, staying true to herself, leading to a wonderfully satisfying ending. I love a great back story and Harriet's was unique and interesting.

This felt like such a right book for now, with a heroine and hero who meet each other half way... after some great conflict. Per is a fantastic hero and I loved that he wasn't conventionally American or English.

The humour is fantastic and Janu's writing style is immediately engaging. This felt fresh, real and a welcome literary escape from the world at large!

In At The Deep End by Penelope Janu was a surprise awesome read. I’m glad it was recommended to me and it has been added to my fave reads for 2017. Harriet and Per were completely attention grabbing together and the plot was a stand out. Emotional, shocking, turbulent, thought-provoking and unputdownable. This was a story I could read again and again and I would not tire of the characters. Both Harriet (Harry) and Per (Polerman) were magic to read. It really was a feel good read and a story that this reader finished with gusto and had me frowning and smiling through to the conclusion. Loved the story.

The protagonist in this easy, fun read was a well-drawn character, with a great back story, although sometimes she acted quite immature for her age. I was less interested in the standoffish love interest, Per, but I do tend to measure such characters against Darcy in Pride and Prejudice (and no-one has matched him yet). I liked the clever links to Amundsen and Scott, the focus on environmental themes and the way Harriet’s phobia was taken seriously and felt true to life. The way in which it was finally resolved made me melt!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Story 23 January 2017
By Mrs. Helen Sibbritt - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is a story about two strong willed people who both have strong environmental views and both do what they can to help "save the world". Harriet Scott or Harry as she is known to her friends grew up travelling the world with her famous parents but when tragedy strikes when she is a young girl her life is turned upside down and she is cared for buy good friend and fellow environmentalist Drew whom she will do anything to protect.

Per Amundsen is a Norwegian naval commander he is a total control freak and when he meets Harry well sparks fly because the meeting is filled with lots of tension as he is trying to save her life in The Antarctic and when The Scott Foundations ship The Watch is lost well it appears that these two very different people are going to be thrown together in their journey to get funding for a new ship and a path to a HEA.

This story has a cast of characters that add to the storyline they are fun and there are some very moving parts in the story as Par insists that Harry learn to swim but this is a very hard task for Harry after the tragedy in Brazil and Par is nothing if not such a control freak but Harry is a spitfire and she stands her grown but does what she knows she needs to do. I enjoyed this one their path to a HEA is an up and hill one their banter will have you smiling and groaning (in a good way) at times and of course there is lots of sensual sparks to push them together a good fun story.
