    It is Canada in 2176 and the country is almost out of quarantine after years of fighting viral epidemics. When Mountie Day Daniels discovers her partner murdered while investigating the violent fringe of the No-Borders movement she begins her investigation with that group. But before she has a chance to really begin she happens on a smuggling operation that goes violent. She is assisted by the bartender, Lian Firebird, who turns out to be assigned as her new partner. However, he is a 'plague hunter' from the Health Canada agency who is involved because of trace viral cells found on her partner's hat. The agencies don't usually work well together, but they must cooperate to find the murderer and the source of this new viral threat. Both of the main characters have very interesting back stories that impact their views. Another great volume in this series.

    This was the second of the 2176 books, with this one set in Canada. I’ve been to Canada, and I know a lot of Canadians (there are a lot in auditing working in Australia) and the only books I’d read set in Canada prior to this one were the Bones books. So it was cool to read a story from a Canadian perspective, especially with a Mountie main character (I just love the Mountie outfit). I did not know a huge amount about the indigenous populations of Canada or the United States and while the scenario this book presents is pretty fanciful, it did teach me a little. I also really like the idea of a country, but particularly a country as innocuous as Canada, closing its borders to the rest of the world, especially when it shares a border with the US (a concept completely foreign to me being Australian and therefore not having to share a border with anyone but nice big oceans!). I’ve watched enough American TV to know that border control is a big issue in North America (though I must say, despite all our nice ocean protection Australia still struggles to protect its borders – except in our case, we have people come from the sea), and I found the measures taken by both sides in this story quite fascinating. All in all, it’s a bit of a slog (there was a lot of background to set up, even in this pre-established world) but I enjoyed the story, and the idea. An enjoyable addition to the series.

    This is book #2 in the 2176 series and it's a sci-fi romance. This one involves the Canadian Mounties (Day is the name of the female character) and was a lot of fun to read. Day was a very straight-laced; right and wrong kind of character. There's a virus, quarantine, get back to nature kind of book. This series can be read out of order, I think. Book #1 and #5 were both written by Susan Grant and they involve similar characters, so probably not good to read #5 before #1. But, the rest have no character interaction. They all have a similar theme: fight for freedom in the sci fi age when the world has changed and freedom has gone along the wayside. Countries are controlled by different governments in this, too.

    #2 in the 2176 series, futuristic sci fi/action/romanceFour different authors in this five book seriesSetting: Canada, in the year 2176Features female Canadian Mountie, and lead male character is a Canada Health scientist (or something similar). Canada is on the verge of coming out of a quarantine due to disease, and these two must work together to be sure the threat is over.I liked this, liked the setting and "world" Kathleen Nance presented. I liked the characters.So it was OK for a newcomer like me to the sci fi/military/action genre.

    Read this some 8 years ago. I remember reading it for the first time and it was just meh, like all other romance books, sex and warts and all.THEN I tore out all the sex scenes and read it ALL over again...it was actually much more interesting to me. I'll try and look for the rest in the series, if they're still in print.

    Yuck. Why do I keep reading this crap? I finally put this book down 3/4 of the way through, but I should have dropped it earlier on when the author said that Day Daniels felt as if her skin had been "rubbed with fluffy cotton" during a sex scene.

    I loved this when I first read it, but I couldn't get into it this time around. Nothing wrong with it, I was just in the wrong mood.

    Not bad, although one of the sex scenes was a bit unbelievable considering the female lead had not long before been banged up pretty good, including broken ribs.

    I'm glad I did not let the reviews stop me from reading this book. I really liked it, it was a bit cheesy in some parts but the story was good.
