Winter Arrives (White Cairns Ski School, #1)Winter Arrives (White Cairns Ski School, Episode 1) by Roz Marshall
Published: December 2013, 76 pages
Source: I received a copy in exchange for an honest review

Description: When her ski instructor husband is delayed from returning to Scotland, it falls to Jude Winters - creative graphic artist, mother and home-maker - to get the season started for ailing White Cairns Ski School. It's a challenge that's way out of her comfort zone. How can she turn things around and keep the wolf from their door until he gets back?

"Winter Arrives" is the 1st novella from the 'White Cairns Ski School' series about a Scottish snowsports school.

Episode 2, "Fear of Falling", and a seasonal short story for Christmas, "Skiing with Santa" are also available.

My Review: Jude's husband runs a ski school and is delayed in returning home. It's up to her to get things up and going. I'm a homemaker, too, and the thought of going into unknown territory to keep things going would scare me to death. Jude didn't let fear stop her--she plunged in and went for it.

What I really enjoyed about this novella is the way that it sets things up. The reader is introduced to the key characters and gets to know a little bit about each one. I felt that this was the perfect setup for the future books in the series. I already have a few characters that stand out as favorites and I'm excited to see where this series will go.

Content: Clean.
