This is a collection of stories about the people and places associated with ‘The White Cairns Ski School’. This collections contains five works, three novella episodes and two short stories. Whilst they could be read in any order, I believe they work best read in the given order as the characters and relationships develop whilst the winter skiing season progresses. The initial work is ‘Winter Arrives’ but it could also be winter arrives but our chief ski instructor doesn’t! It just happens that he’s also the husband of Jude Winters to whom the task then falls of organising everything ready for the new season to start, including a team of instructors. This is a lively start with to what proved to be an exciting and entertaining set of stories.
The books have strong characters who are continually developed as you read additional episodes. The setting is spectacular, add in the excellent plot development, complete with intrigue, suspense, mystery, accidents and bad weather, all combine to make this a thoroughly enjoyable start to the series. I have no hesitation in highly recommending this and look forward to being able to read further episodes about the centre and the people there. I’ll also be looking out for other works by this author who takes her readers into her books, making it feel as if you’re actually there, witnessing what is occurring and sometimes actually taking an active part in it! I suspect that with the future episodes in place this could easily become a 5* series!
Thanks to the author for letting me read an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
