Up in the magical, snow-kissed mountains…
Two years ago, Annie Brewer’s life was turned upside down when her adrenaline-junkie husband died in a tragic climbing accident. So she’s hoping that moving to the beautiful village of Santorso in the Italian Alps will finally put her life back on track!
…anything can happen!
She might be going into business with her oldest friend – notorious lady-charmer Matt Brown – but men are definitely out of the question for Annie! That is, until she bumps into tall, dark and delicious Alessandro Lago on the ski slopes…and spontaneously says ‘Yes’ to a date!
It must be the crisp, mountain air but suddenly, anything seems possible. The only trouble is, chivalrous Matt is looking more gorgeous than ever…
I love Trevor's books - there is always a little twist in them and they keep you guessing right the way through. This is no exception and Annie has a close friend and a good-looking Italian/Englishman both paying her attention in the ski resort.
Matt and Alex appear to be quite different to start with, but then the similarities start to appear. Along with the cracks......
Annie is willing to move on after her husband's death, 2 years ago, but something either holds her back, or stops her from going too far into any relationship. She relies on her heart - wisely as it turns out.
The book seemed to be moving to the climax at the masked ball - but still kept us guessing afterwards! What would Annie do with her new found knowledge/feelings?
The other characters were wonderfully drawn and Paolina's wardrobe is amazing! And then of course there is Leo. Black glossy hair, boundless energy and an uncanny knack of spoiling potentially romantic moments.......like most black labradors!
