Love on the Slopes by Elizabeth Goddard

My book review today is on the Heartsong Presents; Love on the Slopes by Elizabeth Goddard. I love Elizabeth's books, most of the ones I've read were suspense so I was surprised when I received this one. I loved it though. A story about skiing is perfect when we are gearing up for the Olympics and of course it's a great love story. I love the characters in the story, both are broken and trying to find away for redemption. God has a plan though, He always does though.

Shannon De Croix is a skier. She is out to earn a place on the U S Ski Team when she has a serious accident. Her boyfriend left her but her coach was there for her. After surgery and months of rehab she is determined to train again. Her father has bought a ski resort, hired coaches, and is sponsoring a team so she can so she can be a winner. Winning is everything. Shannon and her coach have a difference of opinion. She defies him and skis a forbidden slope, he quits, leaving her floundering.

Hudson Landers was once an Olympic Champion. He had everything he once dreamed of but after pushing his sister after an injury, she fell and was left paralyzed. Now blaming himself he tries to convince Shannon to take it easy but her winning is everything attitude forces him to quit.

Shannon doesn't understand Hudson. He had stood beside her after her injury telling her he'd be there for her. She had never realized how much he meant to her until he was gone. She follows him to neighboring resort where he is helping the disabled. She volunteers in his program to try to talk him into coming back.

Hudson has been in love with Shannon for a long time but he can't allow himself to be happy, not after what he did to his sister.

A great story. I know you will love it. You need to run out and get a copy. I hope you have a great week end.
