About The Book

Jen is turning thirty and has spent her entire life jumping from man to man. So, when her latest relationship ends in disaster, she decides she needs to stop pleasing others and focus on herself. And where better to start afresh than the beautiful Canadian ski resort of Whistler?
Okay, she’s broke, unemployed, and has never so much as strapped on a pair of skis – but Jen is determined to make it on her own. She just has one rule: to stay single for the entire ski season.
When a new job forces Jen into contact with snowboarding instructor Art, the two of them are set on keeping their distance. It shouldn’t be hard, since they hate one another on sight – and Art knows better than anyone how to keep other people at arm’s length.
The problem is, the more time they are forced to spend together, the clearer it seems that Jen’s promise to stay single might not be quite so simple . . .

My Thoughts

I love when a story can transport you to another place; making you dream of snow and delicious hot chocolates.
This is the story of Jen, she has decided to take a few months for herself in a Canadian ski resort, she needs to step back from her life and start valuing herself first; on her professional and personal life. So, what can be more perfect than staying alone for the full ski season and discovering what she wants?
Going to a ski resort can seem fun, but not if you are paired to work with Art; who seems to have problems on his own. 
As you can imagine, life will want Jen and Art to collide as much as possible, even if they find it annoying in the beginning… but maybe something more later…
I have to say that this had been a slow burn read, sweet and lovely, perfect to keep you smiling but also to make see your life from a new perspective.
I love this story, it’s not a romance per se, but a self growing story. How Jen starts to see life in a different perspective and value herself. Also, Art story is not easy but it’s nice seeing how step by step he starts healing with Jen on his side.
If you are looking for a story to leave a smile on your face page after page, “Single in the Snow” is your choice, believe me.
