Holly Buchannon needs to get away from it all for a while. Herself and her best friend Pippa secure jobs ant the exclusive Swiss ski resort Verbier. Holly just wants a change of scenery but Pippa wants to snag herself a millionaire. Life has other ideas when Pippa falls in love with a penniless mechanic and is now pregnant. Faced with a choice to return home to her mother or go it alone she decides to head off to Switzerland on her own.
As soon as she gets there she realises she will never fit in. She puts on her game face and tries her best to fake it. She meets a handsome stranger who seems to be able to look into her eyes and see her soul and she instantly feels a connection to him. Turns out he isn’t going to be such as stranger after all as this fine specimen turns out to be her new boss.
Who said Ski season is cold? Certainly not Lorraine Wilson.
I was going to refer to Confessions of a Chalet Girl as the perfect light summer read, only it happens to be lashing outside. you catch my drift though, right?
If I am reading a book with the intention of reviewing it I don’t usually read other reviews first. I don’t like to be swayed one way or another before I read the book. I had no idea what to expect from it. As a novella it was like an extended short story, which in itself is a shame because I would have happily read more about Holly and Scott. Though in saying this there were no wasted words and no gaps in the story. It was a lovely book, very well written and extremely enjoyable.
I am excited though that this is only the first in a series of books set around Chalet girls so I can only hope that we don’t leave Holly & Scott’s story here but will catch glimpses of them in future books.
