The plot of the story was like a roller coasterI thought this novel was outstanding.

The plot of the story was like a roller coaster, it went up and down and you never want it to stop. As I was reading, the characters felt like family and I cared about every one of them. I would recommend this series and I can’t wait until part two comes out.

Will he find her?

Wow! So I received this book as ARC for an honest review. I never heard of Desiree Scott, but after reading Chasing Chelsey I am a fan. This book drew me in from the very first page. The story is about. The girl who is running from her past. She does not let anyone come close, cause when he does they end up missing or dead. She meets the St. CLAIR brothers and they are vowing never to let anyone hurt her. I read this book in 1 day. Could not put it down needed to know what happens next.

It was supposed to be a vacation, a time to save her marriage, but what Joan Clayton hadn’t counted on was Murphy’s Law of Vail Mountain and the secrets that had damaged her marriage beyond repair. It was over. Depressed and angry, she decided to venture directly into an oncoming snowstorm, one that would be known as the blizzard of the century.
Stephen Brockheart received the call concerning a missing tourist after working 26 hours straight. A park ranger for the mountain resort, he set out on the routine mission, knowing he was running out of time as the blizzard hit with visibility zero. What he hadn’t counted on was saving a beautiful woman and falling for her, a city girl who knew nothing about the dangers of the mountain. He had been there before and vowed never to return.
As Mother Nature raged, Joan was soon overcome by the feelings a complete stranger evoked in her, causing her to reevaluate her own life. Through the blizzard and stranded at the resort, death was imminent for any who would try to leave. Despite loss and secrets, can two people find love and happiness again?
Can they be given a second chance to make it real and lasting, or will that chance die with them?

Light the fire, grab the cocoa, and get ready for a great read!

Stranded on Vail Mountain is a well-written, gripping, fast-paced novella. I love short reads, especially those which grab the reader by the seat of the pants from the first line to the last – this one delivers! I’ve read this story twice and will read it again. This was my first read of this author’s works. I look forward to reading much more from her. I don’t write reviews often, but some stories are too good not to share.

Awesome PNR Fiction Must Read!

What an awesome first PNR read & the first book I’ve ever read by this talented author, but it definitely won’t be the last! Great storyline and new take on wolf shifters with animated characters, that kept me glued to the book & pages turning 🙂 I never write spoilers or recap blurbs, but I do know when a book is a great must-read! … Originally I was given an advanced reader copy in exchange for an honest review but loved it so much, I just one-clicked my own copy to keep 😀 So yes I highly recommend this must-read to all fiction lovers, especially in paranormal, shifters and fantasy! Can’t wait for upcoming works from Ms. Scott 😀

I am in love.

I absolutely love this book and all it has to offer. It is fast-paced with lots of plot twists. It is a sad, unfortunate story that ends in the best possible way. It took me about 24 hours read it; although, it would have been sooner if life didn’t get in the way haha. I am so happy that Chelsea gets her happily ever after, after all, that she has been through. This is definitely a story I see myself rereading in the future.

A Good Story

Desiree Scott is a talented author. This is the third Vail Mountain book. Jacob and Connie were attracted to each other and although they both had jobs away from the mountain they came back. Connie is dealing with her almost ex and his mother and Jacob come back to be the new sheriff. When things start to happen to Connie, Jacob is investigating. Read all three books, they are a wonderful series.
