Love on the Slopes by Elizabeth Goddard Book #Review


LOVE ON THE SLOPES

SHANNON DE CROIX HAD BIG PLANS
But a serious injury ended her dreams of making the nation’s top ski team. Now, with her handsome coach, Hudson Landers, at her side, Shannon hopes to compete again. But though she trusts Hudson’s judgment, she wants to train harder.
Hudson cares too much about Shannon to let her risk her life just for the sake of competition. He fears that one more fall could destroy her future and break her heart. Can Shannon and the disabled kids he coaches show him that falling down and getting back up again is what faith and love are all about?


MY THOUGHTS-Elizabeth Goddard is a fun author to read. When I want something entertaining, her books are what I will pick up. But they aren't just for light reading. You also learn lessons as you follow the characters through their lives. And Love on the Slopes is exactly one of those stories.

Shannon is one fighter for a lady. I enjoyed getting to know her and how she works but also how she grows from diva to volunteer helper. It is funny to see her realize what her goals are in life and who she really is. And it also gets you thinking about who you are as a person and what you really want out of life. Hudson is your perfect handsome guy but he has baggage. He feels responsible for something that happened in the past and doesn't trust himself to take care of Shannon. In his eyes he lets everyone down in the end. Shannon is also dealing with a father who is authoritative. In the end he turns out okay but I had a very hard time with him at first.

I like how the romance is sweet and not rushed. They have known each other forever but never realized how they felt about the other one. The weather outside makes me feel like I should be skiing:) But this is definitely a nice book to curl up with along with a cup of coffee. You can't go wrong with a book from Elizabeth! So make sure to pick up Love on the Slopes when it releases next month!

Follow Elizabeth Goddard on all her social media sites as well! You never know when you might be the first to hear the news of an upcoming book:)
