Review: Fear of Falling (White Cairns Ski School # 2) By Roz Marshall

Fear of Falling (White Cairns Ski School, #2) 
Publication: November 2013, 66 pages
My Source: I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Description: A lost child and an approaching blizzard put White Cairns' ski instructor Fiona Easton in a life-threatening predicament. Can she overcome her fear of heights to prevent tragedy blighting her life again?

"Fear of Falling" is the 2nd novella from the 'White Cairns Ski School' series about a Scottish snowsports school.

Whilst this is a stand-alone book, you might enjoy reading the series from the first episode, "Winter Arrives". A seasonal short story for Christmas, "Skiing with Santa" is also available, set chronologically between episodes 1 and 2.

My Review: I love the way each episode helps the reader learn more about different characters. Fiona has such a mothering instinct. A girl in her group doesn't want to participate and Fiona coaxes her into it but talking to her and figuring out the issue and a solution. When a child is lost in her group at the start of a big storm, she does what she can to rescue him. I love the way this ski team really seems like family. They care and look out for one another and that relationship is very endearing.
