Product description

Product Description

Shepherd fifty-one seniors on a multinational bus tour, including a ninety-five-year-old with a lethal cane?

To preserve his sick brother’s travel business, retired pro athlete, Oliver Pike, would do far more. But then weather intervenes, forcing the tour bus off-route into the small mountain town of Harmony, Alberta.

In the hold of the bus, amid the walkers and luggage, lies a half-frozen stowaway. Page Maddux is commitment-averse and obviously lacking in common sense. Once revived, she’s also the person Oliver must depend upon to help him keep the “oldsters,” as she calls them, out of harm’s way.

When their week together is over, will Harmony recover from the group's escapades? And what of Oliver’s heart?

This standalone novel is book 2 in a 12-book series of sweet-to-warm contemporary romances written by different authors, but set in a fictional small town in the Canadian Rockies. It features a happy-ever-after and shenanigans that would be at home in a screwball comedy like those staring Cary Grant or Katharine Hepburn.

What Critics and Readers Are Saying:

"If O'Hara's next books are anything like this one, she's got a long career ahead of her. A sweet, heartfelt series love story." Kirkus Reviews

"What an entertaining, funny, sad, adorable romp Opposite of Frozen turned out to be. Since this is Jan O'Hara's debut book, just sign me up for whatever comes next from her talented mind." —RomanceIsAgeless.com

"Smart, funny, and with a cast of quirky characters you're bound to fall in love with, Jan O'Hara's debut novel is a lively read... You'll pick it up for the reluctant romance brewing between former baseball superstar turned tour guide Oliver Pike and commitment-averse wanderer Page Maddux: You'll keep reading for the intergenerational shenanigans..." —Liz Michalski, author of Evenfall

"...a fun romp through the snowy mountains that keeps you chuckling as it tugs on your heart strings."

"...sparks fly in this refreshing, heart-warming tale of two opposites who can't resist butting heads."

"The quick pace, intriguing story-lines and memorable characters held me captive to the end. Ms. O'Hara's deft way with words describing a winter in the Canadian Rockies, romance and a delightful humour, I could not put this book down."

"I loved these people -- all of them. The oldsters were a satisfying group of people, all with their quirks and their depths, and they were people, not just there for adorableness and complications..."

"I especially enjoyed the simply written, quick pace of the story, the lively characters, and the humor that was expressed through many similes and metaphors. The antics of the seniors are realistic and it is difficult to put the book down. Jan O'Hara's first novel is definitely a 'must read' and I will definitely be on the lookout for her next novel."

5.0 out of 5 stars Opposite of Frozen 17 February 2017
By Jessica Mitchell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
A downright funny and second chance romance novel.

Retired pro-athlete Oliver Pikes has a lot of demons in his life and the past keeps coming up. And one of those happen to be helping his ill brother with his business of tours. The one tour that he got suckered into is for fifty-one seniors in which their tour bus gets a little detoured and stuck in a small mountain town in the middle of nowhere. To make matters worse he has to deal with a stowaway. A approaching snow storm and disappearing seniors, who won't stay at the hotel long enough to be found and be accounted for. He needs help but no one's coming from his brother company. And his problems seem to just keep piling up.
Will he find out who the mysterious woman is? Will they find the missing seniors? And better yet will they ever get out of the mountain town?

5.0 out of 5 stars It's never too late to change 17 March 2017
By KarmelRead2665 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When I chose to read this book I thought okay it might be interesting boy was I pleasantly surprised. This book headset fun-loving, crotchety, senior citizens with attitude, caring, loving, insecurities, feelings of betrayal, and fear.

The oldsters made you think about being just like that when you are there age. I laughed and got a little weepy but this book was just so worth the read.

The author did a good job with her portion of the series. Kudos Miss O'Hara. I will probably need to look out for other books written by you.
5.0 out of 5 stars one to take you away 8 April 2017

Even though I have not read this author before this just looked like a adorable read. The set up seemed so to have a bit of humor with the characters that was within. Lo and Behold it was just what I believed. This author gives you some fine cast with it centering around Oliver who then finds Page in a not so smart situation. As it goes along though you will soon forget that with this story providing many aspects for reading pleasure. I found myself falling into this romance and disappearing for awhile coming up feeling oh so good then this author is a wiz. Being from a small town this was relate able also.

Opposite of Frozen by Jan O'Hara is Oliver and Page's story. I liked it. There were comical parts that I found myself laughing to. I have not read this author before but I would definitely pick another one of her books up. I liked Page and Oliver's characters. I thought they played well off each other too. I thought Page was kind of stupid to stowaway the way she did but it all worked out for her in the end. I liked Oliver's devotion to his brother and the fact he was willing to help him out in his time of need. I would recommend Opposite of Frozen to anyone who wants a light and comical romance read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying romance 17 October 2016
By Natalie Arloa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I loved these people -- all of them. The oldsters were a satisfying group of people, all with their quirks and their depths, and they were *people*, not just there for adorableness and complications (i.e., not plot moppets). And I loved the pace O'Hara took to get Page and Oliver through the walls they'd built, and how they inspired change in each other, and how their trust and attraction had built together. This was funny, and dear, and made me tear up for happy and sad reasons. Also, I need to go to the Canadian Rockies.
