Reading this story, I felt I was there with the heroine, skiing down that mountain, feeling the cold wind in my face. The story is vivid and realistic, and I was pleased that the heroine is someone near my own age. Essentially, it's a love story in which the heroine, after her marriage break-up, meets someone new. Sex plays a big role in this story, and there's also a dash of the supernatural. I liked the ending; it doesn't guarantee a happy-ever-after, but suggests that these two people have a chance to make it work. It's a great book for curling up in bed with on a chilly day.
