Choices are hard. You want it all and yet, sometimes those dreams aren't compatible. It's the first thing that I loved about On the Slopes by Bridie Hall. We have a strong female character who is good, athletically. She's got the skills to become an Olympic medalist. She's trained and let nothing stop her from reaching that goal.

Then you put his needs and interests above yours... But in On the Slopes, Charlise keeps her focus on the goal- her dream. Don't take my word for it.... grab your own copy today!!

But the holidays culminate in an epic fight, and with a repeat of the painful breakup with Sam. However, new discoveries from her family’s past might change Charlise’s mind about Sam …
